Title (EN) NETWORK FOR SUPPORTING SPIRAL WOUND MEMBRANE CARTRIDGES FOR SUBMERGED OPERATION
(FR) RESEAU DE SUPPORT DE CARTOUCHES A MEMBRANE SPIRALEE POUR OPERATION EN IMMERSION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and apparatus are provided for positioning a plurality of cylindrical spirally wound membrane filtration elements in a body of aqueous feedstock employing manifold conduits that support vertically aligned filtration elements via short lengths of pipe. Efficient and effective connections are made between the ends of such support pipes and the adjacent end of each filtration element by bayonet-type fittings, which allow straightforward, detachable interconnection by axially moving the cylindrical element into place and then rotating the element a quarter turn. Support in this manner provides full access to the open lower ends of the element through which, during operation, streams of rising gas bubbles are caused to pass, fed from underlying bubblers or the like. The manifold conduits may be located either above or below the preferably vertically oriented filtration elements.
(FR)L'invention concerne des procEdEs et des appareils pour positionner une pluralitE d'ElEments cylindriques de filtrage A membrane spiralEe dans le corps d'un produit de dEpart aqueux au moyen de conduits de collecteur supportant des ElEments de filtrage alignEs verticalement par le biais de courts tronÇons de tuyaux. Des connexions efficaces et solides sont rEalisEes entre les extrEmitEs de tels tuyaux de support et l'extrEmitE adjacente de chaque ElEment de filtrage par des raccords A baIonnette, ce qui permet une interconnexion simple et amovible par mouvement axial de l'ElEment cylindrique pour le positionner, avant de donner un quart de tour. Un support de cette maniEre permet un accEs sans restrictions aux extrEmitEs infErieures ouvertes de l'ElEment A travers lequel, en cours de fonctionnement, des courants de bulles de gaz montantes vont passer, injectEes par des barboteurs sous-jacents ou similaires. Les conduits de collecteur peuvent Etre situEs au-dessus ou bien au-dessous des ElEments de filtrage orientEs de prEfErence verticalement.
