With the Helix flux enhancement technology, X-Flow addresses a bottleneck in high-solids ultrafiltration (UF) by preventing the buildup of foulants. Helix technology enhances flux, increases flow, and saves energy. By introducing turbulence right at the membrane wall, Helix technology provides continuous mixing and efficient removal of the cake layer that would otherwise reduce the membrane's hydraulic permeability. The resulting higher permeate flow means higher productivity and lower costs. Due to the effective membrane cleaning at low crossflow velocities, Helix technology significantly reduces the energy footprint compared to standard tubular membrane solutions.
