  • Enhancement of ejector performance for a desalination system

    This paper describes the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to investigate the performance of the ejector used in desalination applications that use air as the working fluid. A three-dimensional model for the CFD was used to investigate the effect of operating conditions and ejector geometry on ejector performance. The results show that ejector performance increases by increasing the ...

  • Evaluation of desalination costs with DEEP

    Detailed analysis has shown several discrepancies and pitfalls of coupling an economic evaluation code, such as SEMER to the desalination cost evaluation code DEEP. This paper resumes our findings, which may be of interest to other DEEP users. The paper in particular deals with the following issues: why is it that power costs from nuclear systems are systematically higher in DEEP than those given ...

  • Seawater desalination at rabigh refinery

    Background Saudi Aramco’s RABIGH Refinery in Saudi Arabia wanted to install facility for 10000 TPD Seawater Desalination for the industrial use. The facility was supposed to be a BOOT (Build Own Operate Transfer) basis. General project description The joint consortium of SETE & Aquatech was successful in meeting the strict guidelines of Technical ...

  • Advances in desalination technology

    Seawater desalination has been the cornerstone of the Middle East's water supply strategy since the mid-1950s, and most of the installed desalination capacity is still provided by multistage flash evaporators. But, desalination is changing. In fact, the term "desalination" is no longer limited to seawater applications; desalination technologies are now routinely employed to desalinate brackish ...

  • Sustainable desalination: environmental approaches

    Abstract The environmental issues of possible concern during construction and operation of desalination plants (mainly large-scale facilities) include impacts that are common to many coastal development projects (e.g. land use and aesthetic impacts), as well as specific impacts associated with the elements of the desalination system and auxiliary infrastructure. In the latter category ...

  • Optimisation of the coupling of nuclear reactors and desalination systems in Morocco

    This study has been undertaken in the framework of IAEA CRP on 'Optimisation of the Coupling of Nuclear Reactors and Desalination Systems in Morocco'. Two sites have been selected to host nuclear desalination plants, and different combinations with nuclear reactors have been investigated. Other combinations with fossil fuel plants have been examined for comparison. The results obtained showed the ...

  • On the performance limitation of reverse osmosis water desalination systems

    The performance of Reverse Osmosis (RO) water desalination processes was investigated using a simulated brackish water plant based on spiral-wound membranes. A semi-rigorous mathematical model was employed in the simulation to calculate the water and salt fluxes at any point along the filtration channel. The effects of two key parameters, namely the transmembrane pressure and membrane surface ...

  • New trends in power and desalination integrated systems

    Demand for desalinated water has increased sharply in recent years, not only in desert areas but also worldwide. To be able to meet such challenging future demand whilst maintaining reasonable water costs that can be sustained by the end users, real water management should be developed. This should include the limitation of leakages in the water distribution mains, adequate design of end user ...

  • Thermal coupling system analysis of a nuclear desalination plant

    When a nuclear reactor is used to supply steam for a desalination plant, the method of coupling has a significant technical and economic impact. The exact method of coupling depends on the type of reactor and the type of desalination plant. As a part of Nuclear Desalination Demonstration Project (NDDP), BARC has successfully commissioned a 4500 m³/day multi-stage flash desalination plant coupled ...

  • Thermodynamics of a desalination system at nuclear power stations

    Nuclear power engineering is developing steadily in industrial countries. This is caused by features of using nuclear fuel and high environmental safety of nuclear power stations. At the same time, the thermodynamic efficiency of nuclear power stations is lower than indices of thermal power stations operating on gas, coal or oil fuel. This efficiency does not usually exceed 30–35%. Hence more ...
