40 mgd Nanofiltration Membrane Element Replacement
In 2004, the City completed construction and commissioning of the 40 mgd NF membrane process addition to the City’s 70 mgd WTP. The original membrane elements for the plant were specially developed for the 2004 project by the membrane the membrane manufacturer, Hydranautics, which subsequently became the ESNA LF (low fouling) product line, the industry standard for South Florida nanofiltration facilities, installed at the Cities of Hollywood, Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach, and Dania Beach. This project also included:
- Low-fouling membranes which were originally developed during the design phase of the plant.
- Unique ability to operate without acid or antiscalant pretreatment
- Winner of the 2013 Membrane Facility Award by the American Membrane Technology Association (AMTA)
