X-TRACTOR® crossflow MBR

The X-TRACTOR® crossflow MBR is our Membrane Bio Reactor technology specially designed for smaller flows of difficult wastewater.

Crossflow MBR

In an X-TRACTOR® MBR tubular membranes are placed in an external loop of the bioreactor. The sludge/purified water mixture is passed at high speed along the surface of the membrane in order to maintain turbulent conditions at the membrane surface.
The water will pass through the membranes while the suspended solids are retained and recycled to the bioreactor.


Due to high speed recirculation these membranes have very low fouling characteristics and are therefore especially used in rather difficult wastewater applications such as laundry and leachate wastewater treatment.
