Trident TNZ LLC – Membrane System

Rethink the Limits of Membrane Filtration

About the Company:

Trident TNZ LLC. is an integrated resource recovery company located in Missouri with proprietary technologies for processing livestock waste, wastewater and sludge. As an expert in integrated nutrient and bedding recovery applications in the agricultural sector, Trident provides its customers proven and reliable technologies that process their waste streams into valuable co-products, creating cost savings and new revenue opportunities for the user. Trident offers standalone equipment and fully integrated turn-key systems, including consulting, process design, automation and maintenance.

About the Solution:

Ultrafiltration suitable for manure treatment applications

Membrane filtration technologies are well established in industrial water filtration processes. However, many traditional membrane systems are impractical for on-farm use, specifically for manure treatment: rapid fouling, declining flux rates, limited operating ranges (due to the impact of temperature, pH, corrosion or pressure), poor selectivity and high costs.

Trident Filtration Systems address these concerns by taking advantage of the superior performance properties of silicon carbide membranes paired with the proven tubular design, ensuring consistently high separation performance and on-farm practicality. Regardless of how demanding the operating conditions might be.

Solution Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

Clean Water Membrane Systems can be used to reduce both suspended and dissolved solids depending on location specific requirements:

  • Can produce recycled dischargeable water (RO) and marketable products when paired with other technologies
  • Always produces two streams leaving system a stream retained and a stream that permeates the membrane.
  • Membranes of various size are often used together to achieve cleaner water: microfiltration or ultrafiltration membranes first followed by reverse osmosis membranes—each allowing various sized particles through the membrane
  • Reverse Osmosis membranes are required to remove salts and achieve water suitable for discharge
  • Depending on the membrane, effective pre-treatment to remove coarse, fibrous solids as well as fine suspended solids are important to system viability and reliability
  • Membrane failure and high pressure/energy costs can be a concern
  • Proven technology for nitrogen recovery, phosphorous recovery, and storage reduction

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

Designed to handle harsh conditions, high solids, and to operate at low operating cost the Trident Titanium Membrane System represents an additional component to the Trident line. Trident has a reputation for well built equipment that works as promised and the introduction of this new component allows them to address one more problem that they have seen in the field, the need for reducing the water in the manure stream.

At this time the Trident Titanium Membrane System does not have a 9-point score as Newtrient is not aware of any dairy installations.

At the 2016 EPA Nutrient Recycling Challenge Trident’s solution was selected as a Top 10 technology. In 2018, Trident Processes Inc. received the Canadian Business Excellence Award in recognition of their demonstrated achievement of their strategic plans and business goals.
