the calculated trim flowrate is a negative flow and the overall plant flow demand decreases. 2010 3. the average level in the membrane tanks is used to trim the plant flow demand.1 Membrane Tank Isolation Gate Membrane tank isolation gate is used to isolate the membrane tank from the influent flow during RECOVERY CLEANS. Membrane Tanks Level & Permeate Flow Control The influent flow signal is used in the calculation of the plant flow demand. The PLC will maintain the entered production flowrate or PLC calculated production flowrate up to a maximum TransMembrane Pressure (TMP) or a minimum membrane tank level.1.AO# 200326 CN_200326_Victorville_R02_28May10_AV. Level control is accomplished with Proportional control. 3. To prevent standby and overflow conditions. The trim flowrate. decreasing permeate production. The plant flow demand is the net permeate flowrate required from the trains and does not include additional permeate the trains produce for non-production operations. This revised plant flow demand is then divided equally to the trains in operation without a manually entered flow setpoint. When the plant flow demand increases. when trains are being backpulsed. which controls the speed of the process pump. A correction factor is calculated to account for the time when the train is not producing water (i. The net production flow setpoint multiplied by the correction factor is then used to calculate the instantaneous flow setpoint for the train. The PLC performs these calculations. is added to or subtracted from the influent flowrate according to the average level in the membrane tanks and the difference from the level setpoint.1. As the influent flow increases the plant flow demand increases. Conversely. This value becomes the net production flow setpoint for a train. causing the process pump(s) to speed up. The process pumps are ramped down.2 Influent Flow.doc SCLA Victorville Control Narrative Printed: June 16. and the membrane tanks level increases as a result of the decreased permeate production. As the level increases above the setpoint in the membrane tanks.e. Relax or Backpulse) and to produce additional water required for backpulsing the train. This value controls the process pump speed through the flow PID loop. the process pumps for the trains in operation are ramped up to increase the plant permeate production which brings the level down in the membrane tanks. The flow setpoints for trains with a manual flow setpoint are added together and subtracted from the plant flow demand which includes the level trim. Consult the OSC for further details on the gate’s position. A flow setpoint may also be entered for each train manually. Page 5 of 22 . such as BACKPULSE. which is a calculated flow. if the membrane tanks are below the setpoint. the trim increases causing the overall plant flow demand to increase. The supervisor can do this by setting the production flowrate for some or all of the trains on the HMI.

As the concentration of solids increases above this concentration setpoint. 2010 Figure 1: Influent Flow. a permeate flow setpoint controls the speed of the process pump until the concentration of mixed liquor increases above a concentration setpoint.000 mg/L. to maximize membrane performance for a ZeeWeed® train.2 Thickener Train The operator is required to waste sludge from the membrane tanks in order to maintain good membrane performance.

The membranes are backpulsed every fifteen minutes. The valves [20-FV-501-4 and 16-FV-821] open.1 Production TransMembrane Pressure (TMP) The PLC continuously calculates the TMP value while in PRODUCTION. The membrane tank gate’s position is controlled based on timers to prevent damage to the membrane and sending the other trains to STANDBY on low level. (i. 4. The default value for this timer is twelve minutes. This value becomes the maximum value for the flow control PID loop output. 5. 6. too negative) the TMP low trigger is active and the flow control PID loop output is captured. The recirculation/drain pump [20-P-801-4] draws the thickened waste activated sludge from the membrane tank and delivers it to sludge holding tank through valve [16-FV-821].. The thickener and train used the same timer to control the production cycle. the maximum value is then gradually increased until the TMP low trigger is active again. If the TMP is too low. The steps for DRAIN are: 1.e. 4 Flow Control The production cycle for a train is PRODUCTION followed by either BACKPULSE or RELAX. 4. 2.doc SCLA Victorville Control Narrative Printed: June 16.

The production cycle for a thickener is PRODUCTION followed by BACKPULSE.. At the moment when the TMP low trigger becomes inactive. When the TMP low trigger becomes active.

In PRODUCTION. During PRODUCTION the value is negative. TMP = Header Pressure + C x (A + B . 4.2 TransMembrane Pressure (TMP) Calculation TMP is calculated by using the equation below. it is positive. for backpulses and CIP. B is the height to the top of membranes in the membrane tank. This control strategy allows the PLC to vary the pump speed to maximize flow while avoiding excessive TMP across the membranes.AO# 200326 CN_200326_Victorville_R02_28May10_AV.Membrane Tank Level) Where: A is the height of the pressure transmitter above the top of the membranes. consult the CLSC for the value. an increased TMP value means a larger pressure differential because the pressure inside the membranes is lower than outside the membranes. 2010 output equals 100%. Therefore a high production TMP is actually expressed as a Pressure Differential Alarm Low. C is a conversion factor (water depth to pressure). Page 9 of 22 .doc SCLA Victorville Control Narrative Printed: June 16. The transmembrane pressure calculation is the same for the ZeeWeed® trains and the thickener. This corresponds to a lower number as expressed in engineering units.

These triggers include a low membrane tank level. 4.5 Putting a Thickener Train to STANDBY/PRODUCTION Several triggers may cause the thickener to go to STANDBY rather than shutting it down. a loss of compressed air. the train proceeds into PRODUCTION. Start and stop train triggers determine when another train is to start or when a train in PRODUCTION is switched to STANDBY respectively. As this demand increases. If the STANDBY triggers no longer exist and a Start trigger is active. 4.

There are selector switches on the HMI to select either Enable Winter or Disable Winter Mode. This value becomes the maximum value for the output of the flow control PID loop. The timers are operator adjustable at the HMI. This rotation only occurs when there is at least one train in STANDBY and at least one train is in the Production cycle. The number of trains in the Production cycle is controlled by the start/stop triggers. The timer is reset to zero.7 Train Rotation When there are long periods of low plant flow demand. The PLC controls the pump speed to backpulse the trains at a set flow rate per train up to a maximum TMP. 4. the PLC check again all the Standby trains and select the train which has more than 30 minutes standby time and the highest standby time to repeat the same process again. which is in Standby more than 30 minutes to go to Production (this train stays in the Production cycle for at least 200 seconds) another trains in the Production cycle will be pushed (by logic) into Standby because of high production time. When the plant is operating with Train Rotation. A transmitter on the membrane header is used to calculate the BACKPULSE TMP.doc SCLA Victorville Control Narrative Printed: June 16. The timer specifies the running time for the next train to go to STANDBY. 5 Backpulse Equipment Control The membranes are backpulsed using process pump. During this switching time the request for the number of running blowers is held constant. it is not included in Train Rotation. This train goes to STANDBY after the timer times out and the train has completed either a Backpulse or a Relax. one train at the time. Winter mode only works as long as there is demand for at least one train to be in the Production cycle. When train 4 is functioning as a thickener. The number of trains in the Production cycle is still controlled by the start/stop triggers. 4. After 200 seconds. Winter Mode and Train Rotation cannot be selected at the same time. Page 11 of 22 . The blower operation does not change during this rotation. The PLC is programmed to force a train. The operator can select the Train Rotation button at the HMI.

Treated water is periodically reversed back through the membranes to maintain stable transmembrane pressures. the TMP high trigger is active and the flow control PID loop output is captured. and the membrane tank level is above the low level trigger then the thickener proceeds to PRODUCTION. If the Calculated MLSS Concentration in the Thickener is less than the Mixed Liquor Suspended Solids Concentration to drain the thickener. It is not applicable to the thickener operation. This provides membrane protection against over-pressurization.

For example. Regardless of the number of trains/thickener in the Production cycle. production cycle duration.e. Blower duty is alternated according to an operator entered run time. During this time solids that have concentrated around the membrane will be distributed away from the membrane surface by the aeration.doc SCLA Victorville Control Narrative Printed: June 16.. The master Production cycle timer starts when there are no trains/thickener in Production and one train/thickener is requested to start PRODUCTION. The operator can initiate a BACKPULSE from the HMI for any ZeeWeed® train by pressing the Backpulse button. At the moment when the TMP high trigger becomes inactive. This common air header then divides into multiple air headers to the membrane tanks. Train 1 is assigned the first time slot. or continues to increase until the maximum value for the flow control PID loop output equals 100%. and the second time slot. the PLC gradually reduces the maximum for the flow PID loop output until the TMP high trigger is not active.

TMP setpoint and flow setpoint for all ZeeWeed® trains can be set through the HMI. This button is disabled if any other train is in BACKPULSE. 2010 When the TMP high trigger becomes active. This control strategy allows the PLC to vary the pump speed to maximize flow while avoiding excessive TMP across the membranes. The blowers supply low pressure air into a common air header.2 Relax RELAX control is an alternative to backpulsing. refer to the OSC and CLSC for the occurrence and number of blowers to be running at any given time. The PLC determines the number of blowers required to run and the flow setpoint for these blowers. Each train/thickener is given a fixed scheduled time in the master Production cycle timer to begin either a BACKPULSE or RELAX. when there are four trains (three trains and one thickener) in the system and the Production cycle time is 12 minutes. Page 12 of 22 . and so on for all trains/thickener in the system. If a backpulse failure occurs and no pump is available. is at 3 minutes of the master Production cycle timer. each train/thickener is always backpulsed at the same time slot of the master Production cycle timer. the first time slot is at time 0 min. the PLC will place the trains into RELAX mode. For further details on blower operation. The blowers operate at a constant speed. the maximum value is then gradually increased until the TMP high trigger is active again.AO# 200326 CN_200326_Victorville_R02_28May10_AV. All ZeeWeed® trains in the plant share the same backpulse duration and production cycle duration. 20-P-201.1 Backpulse Sequencing The PLC staggers the backpulses of the trains and thickener throughout each cycle to distribute the backpulses evenly when all trains/thickener are in the Production cycle.

As the plant flow demand increases the recirculation flow demand increases. causing the recirculation/drain pump(s) to speed up. The PLC aerates trains sequentially to limit the number of starts and stops on the membrane aeration blowers. the thickener is aerated continuously in 10/10 aeration. When a train in STANDBY is aerated. If all blowers are faulted. the recirculation/drain pump does not operate in PRODUCTION. 6. If. a RAS pump will remain running on one train. Trains are aerated in the order of their train number.

A liquid flow into a tank or system. Inputs/outputs refer to the direction of the electronic signal in reference to the PLC. Inputs are signals that come into the PLC via an external device. Outputs are signals that are sent from the PLC to an external device. Inputs/outputs can be either digital or analog signals. A control scheme for preventing a mechanism or action from being set in motion when another mechanism or action is in operation, because the two operating simultaneously might produce undesirable results. An electrically charged particle with a positive or negative charge, formed by the dissociation of a salt, mineral, or acid in water.

The process of restoring the ion exchange resin to its fully charged state. A measure of the tendency of water to dissolve or deposit calcium carbonate (scaling). LSI is calculated based on the total alkalinity, hardness, total dissolved solids (TDS), pH, and temperature of the water, and scaling. An LSI of 3.0 is indicative of a potential for severe scaling. The LSI is a calculated, dimensionless number that is used to determine the tendency of a water supply to foul RO membranes with calcium carbonate scale. It is dependent upon the following: • • • • the calcium content of the water supply. the bicarbonate alkalinity of the water supply. the pH of the water. the temperature of the water.

If the LSI is negative, there is no potential for calcium carbonate scale as CaCO3 dissolves in water. If the LSI is zero, there is no potential for scaling or CaCO3 dissolving. If the LSI is positive, there is a potential for CaCO3 scale, the magnitude of the potential being dependent upon the magnitude of the LSI number. An LSI of 3.0 would be considered to be a water with severe scaling tendencies. As the concentrate stream moving through a reverse osmosis unit becomes more and more concentrated in dissolved minerals, the LSI of the water changes from the inlet of the system to the final concentrate outlet. As all RO membrane processes are staged (except for single element systems) with the concentrate out of one membrane feeding into the next, the worst LSI (example: most positive) is seen in the water coming out of the last membrane from the last housing. If it is predicted that this LSI will in fact be positive, it is common practice to either: • polish the raw water, reducing the calcium and magnesium contents. feed antiscalant chemical, which 'negates' the effects of the calcium. feed an acid to lower the pH and move the LSI in a negative direction.

Foulants are divided into the following four groups: • • • • Biological Precipitative Adsorptive Solids Formation BIOLOGICAL FOULING: Aerobic and anaerobic living materials.GE Water & Process Technologies Operation & Maintenance Manual 200326 SCLA Industrial Wastewater Treatment Facility ZeeWeed MBR-Ultrafiltration System Membrane fouling reduces the life of a membrane. 2010 . cationic surfactants. Scale forms when the compounds in the feed water are concentrated beyond their solubility. This type of fouling is not common in ZeeWeed systems because filtration does not remove dissolved ions from the water. Inorganic foulants form a hard scale on the membrane surface. and algae.Membrane Care A-68 Rev. thus reducing the flow of purified water. Foulants are materials that accumulate on the surface of a membrane and decrease membrane performance. and hydrocarbons. such as bacteria. fungus.2. A.4. are classified as biological foulants. These deposits reduce the effective membrane surface area. are classified as adsorptive foulants. hindering membrane performance. ZeeWeed 500D . Scale can be caused by high pH levels and extremely hard feed water. ADSORPTIVE FOULING: Compounds that stick to the surface of the membrane. 0 June. which can block the flow through the membrane surface. These organisms colonize on the surface of the membrane. PRECIPITATIVE FOULING: Precipitative fouling usually occurs in the form of scale. Common precipitative foulants include calcium carbonate and magnesium sulfate. such as oil. polymers.2 FOULING AND FOULANTS Fouling is defined as the accumulation of unwanted deposits on a membrane surface.

Since established biological growth is much more difficult and time-consuming to remove than recent biological growth.3 FOULING TREATMENT Different strategies are required to treat the four types of fouling. The accumulation of material between the membrane fibers can create the following conditions: • Increased membrane resistance to permeation (causing increased TMP). GE W&PT prescribes frequent cleanings with low doses of sodium hypochlorite (bleach) to kill biological foulants.4. These low-strength doses are preferable to the infrequent. 0 June.Membrane Care A-69 .

which results in fibers that can move to a limited degree. The fiber length on a module relative to the overall distance between the two headers is marginally larger. For the reasons listed above. The slack of the fibers within respective ZeeWeed 500D products is a measurable property and adjustments can be made as required. it is strongly recommended that it be remedied in a timely manner. A module with taut fibers may not perform well because the random motion of the fibers during aeration is critical to the filtration efficiency of ZeeWeed membranes. Shrinkage is a physical change that can be expected to be observed in any product composed of synthetic polymers. 0 June. to ensure optimum performance from their membranes. Significant changes in fiber slack are generally observed when a module is operated extensively at temperatures of >25ºC (77ºF) or in the presence of certain solvents sometimes found in industrial wastewater applications. If the fibers shrink during operation. even those sites operating below 25ºC (77ºF). and is a function of operating temperature. and time. chlorine concentration.3 FIBER SHRINKAGE AND SLACK ZeeWeed 500D modules consist of hollow fibers supported between two headers maintained at a product specific fixed distance from each other. The exact rate of fiber shrinkage is difficult to predict due to variability in site specific parameters. For example. Fiber slack changes for a specific plant and application. Plants operating at temperatures below 25ºC (77ºF) are not expected to exhibit significant fiber shrinkage and the need for slack adjustment is unlikely. ZeeWeed 500D modules are manufactured with inherent fiber slack designed to optimize membrane air scouring during operation as well as accommodate typical changes. If an insufficient fiber slack problem is observed. 2010 ZeeWeed 500D . it is important for plant operations staff to monitor their ZeeWeed product slack. the shrinkage rate increases with temperature. a plant operating at 35ºC (95ºF) will typically exhibit more fiber shrinkage than a plant operating at 30ºC (86ºF) over the same period of time. however.4. the predetermined slack will disappear and the fibers will become taut affecting membrane performance.Membrane Care A-71 .
