ADVANCEES - High TDS Reduction - Custom skid-mounted water purification equipments - Water and Wastewater

There are potential health effects caused due to high TDS content in drinking water. The hard water will taste bitter, salty, or metallic and may have unpleasant odors. High TDS water is less thirst quenching. High TDS interferes with the taste of foods and beverages, and makes them less desirable to consume. Some of the individual mineral salts such as Nitrates, Sodium, Sulfates, Barium, Cadmium, Copper and Fluoride that make up TDS pose a variety of health hazards such as causing stiffness in the joints, hardening of the arteries, kidney stones, gall stones and blockages of arteries, microscopic capillaries and other passages in which liquids flow through our entire body.

Sustainability of good health of living organisms depends upon the purity of water. Because of its inherent dissolution capacity, water naturally picks up minerals and salt present in the earth crust during the runoff and percolation process. Water is used for several purposes by human beings and the level of purity of water consumed is very crucial as it has a direct and telling effect on health.

In general these are the main steps to achieve desired High TDS Reduction water quality:

  • TDS: 100-12,000 mg/l (as NaCl)
  • SDI15: < 3.0
  • Temperature: 25 to 35ºC (77 to 95°F)
  • Recovery: 70 to 85%
  • Nominal Rejection: >98%
  • Incoming Power: 480/380/220/110V 60/50Hz

Note: Required 3bar (45psi) minimum customer supplied pressure to high pressure RO Feed Pump. Temperatures and high salinities will reduce system productivity
