Toray Industries has been a pioneer in the membrane market since the early 1970s. TMUS offers expertise in water and wastewater treatment technologies including: reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, microfiltration and membrane bioreactors. Integrated membrane solutions such as MF/RO, UF/RO and/or MBR/RO help our customers improve their competitiveness and plant performance. Toray's state-of-the art automated manufacturing ensures consistent product quality and superior RO element performance. Ultra-Filtration/Micro-Filtration modules offer top quality filtration with effective waterborne pathogen removal. Our modules carry both NSF-61 and State of California Department of Public Health (CDPH) certification for use in drinking water installations. Flat sheet MBR modules from Toray offers high quality treated water, with minimized fouling and pore clogging.

Advanced technology and more widespread acceptance are driving a growing number of municipalities to adopt the practice of wastewater reuse. Ultrafiltration (UF) has been proven a key in this process, but operators have struggled to keep up with repairs or having to replace older hollow-fiber membranes. Recent advancements in manufacturing have produced more durable membranes that accomplish the task at a lower cost based on the total lifecycle.
Toray UF membrane modules were piloted over a fifteen-week period to help service the growing demand for clean water in southwest North Dakota. The outcome, as part of the Southwest Pipeline Project (SWPP), would be construction of the Oliver-Mercer-North Dunn (OMND) Water Treatment Plant.
To better comply with the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2) the City of Delaware (Ohio) piloted Torayfil hollow-fiber PVDF membrane modules to treat surface water for their 7.2 mgd full-scale facility. After significant review of the data, cost, and other factors, the City and URS selected Toray to utilize in the full scale design. Read the full case study to learn more.
CH2M contacted Toray Membrane USA with an invitation to pilot our pressurized TIPS hollow fiber UF membrane module for the City of Sherman Texas 10 MGD Expansion Project. This document summarizes the findings of this pilot study program.
Ultrafiltration (UF) membranes have already gained worldwide acceptance in the treatment of drinking water for their removal of chlorine resistant pathogens such as cryptosporidium. Tertiary treatment with UF has been established, although with a lower level of knowledge and number of installations. This paper will discuss the performance of hollow fiber UF/MF membrane modules in treating tertiary effluent, and the subsequent performance of the downstream RO membranes.
This presentation will discuss the operation of a 4 MGD pressurized two-stage Ultrafiltration (UF) plant over a 14 month period at the Oliver-Mercer-North Dunn (OMND) Drinking Water Treatment Facility, North Dakota.
This article will discuss the operation of a 4 MGD pressurized two-stage Ultrafiltration (UF) plant over a 14 month period at a drinking water treatment facility in North Dakota, and explain how performance of these UF membranes over a fourteen month period demonstrated stable operation with minimal fouling.
