  • Seawater feed reverse osmosis preheating appraisal, Part II: system performance

    The present work evaluates the seawater feed Reverse Osmosis (RO) preheating system process. In this respect, the basic transport equations, which describe the system elements, are used for determining the performance of the process operating parameters and for assessing the feed preheating process. A seawater membrane, FTSW30HR-380, was used to perform this study. In Part I of the work, the ...

  • Features of Reverse Osmosis (RO)

    1. Removal of dissolved salts  Reverse osmosis can stably and effectively remove dissolved salts, dissolved organic substances (trihalomethane, its precursors, agricultural chemicals, etc.), and micro fine particles (living germs, dead germs, and many other micro fine particles) from water. Thus it is ideal for a wide area of applications ranging from production of ultra pure water to ...

  • Selecting a pump for sea water reverse osmosis

    Reverse osmosis (RO) desalination has become a significant process used in the purification of water. Selecting the correct pump is a significant step in a well designed and properly operating pumping system. Although the pump is a relatively small part of the overall cost of an RO system, expenses resulting from downtime and inefficiency can quickly diminish the productivity of the RO system and ...

  • Evaluating impact of fouling on reverse osmosis membranes performance

    Abstract Membrane fouling is commonly defined as an undesirable formation of deposits on mem- brane surfaces and it is considered a major problem in most brackish, seawater, and waste water reclamation applications. Depending on nature of the scale and foulant, fouling pro- cesses will lead to decreased membrane fluxes, increased pressures needs, and/or increased permeate conductivity. ...

  • Overview of seawater desalination status and challenges

    Introduction World oceans contain over 97.2% of the planet’s water resources. Because of the high salinity of ocean water and the significant costs associated with seawater desalination most of the global water supply has traditionally come from fresh water sources – groundwater aquifers, rivers and lakes. Today, however, changing climate patterns combined with population ...

  • Results from 99 seawater ro membrane autopsies

    Abstract This paper presents results from 99 sea water reverse osmosis (SWRO) membrane autopsies carried out by the Genesys laboratory in Madrid from 2002 and outlines the technical issues surrounding fouling and scaling of sea water membranes. The authors discuss historical results of membrane autopsies and link recent trends and changes in plant design to potential fouling and ...

  • Design, operating and research experience at the Penneshaw Seawater Desalination Plant, South Australia

    Abstract This paper provides a historical perspective of the plant, including performance problems and how they were overcome, as well as key learnings from selected process R&D studies. The South Australian Water Corporation (SA Water) is a wholly-owned public water utility, responsible for the management of water and wastewater supply, treatment and distribution infrastructure, for ...

  • Depth exposed membrane for water extraction (DEMWAX) for seawater desalination

    Introduction The Depth Exposed Membrane for Water Extraction (DEMWAX) is a novel approach to both fresh surface water treatment and seawater desalination that deploys a system directly within the source water body. The DEMWAXTM system is configured to take advantage of the natural (free) pressure of the source water body to drive a membrane process. This configuration has many advantages ...

  • HF Pure Water visits the Middle East

    HF Pure Water recently participated in the Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition held in Dubai, UAE. In speaking with numerous people that visited the HF Pure Water booth, it became apparent that there were limited opportunities for waste water treatment as many manufacturers simply dumped their wastewater into the ocean. This was confirmed in a meeting held with the Dubai ...

  • Membrane cleaning skids prolong operating life of costly membrane filtration units

    Considered one of the most important and costly components of a reverse osmosis purification system, membrane filtration elements (a thin semi-permeable layer which desalinates seawater) collect mineral buildup, organic materials and bacterial agents. The Lifestream Membrane Cleaning Skid cleans, flushes out and preserves the membrane, reviving efficiency and prolonging membrane life.Designing a ...

  • Micro-media filtration: superior pre-filtration for desalination systems

    Introduction To ensure trouble free-operation of seawater desalination systems, membrane manufacturers recommend removal of suspended solids to negligible levels, as even small amounts of solids adhering to the surface of the membrane elements may adversely foul the membranes, deteriorate permeate quality and reduce membrane life. The past two decades have seen a dramatic increase in the ...

For this situation, the Sagunto Council planed to cover part of the future hydraulic deficit for short and long term with the ...

  • Advanced Water Treatment Technologies May Bring Purified Water to San Diego

    'In four years, half of San Diego may be filling its glasses with tap water that once ran through its toilets,' reported the San Diego Union-Tribune recently. A plan to mix 'repurified water' with the City's raw drinking water reservoir could become a reality, thanks to the wonders of water treatment technology. Such a possibility elicits various reactions including disgust, marvel and fear. ...

  • Picking Their Membranes - Part I -

    Membrane use by water suppliers may not be new, but suppliers are considering membranes in new ways -- by number and variety of applications. Membranes can work on a wider range of resource waters, more efficiently and for less cost than before. Among membranes' attractions as substitutes for conventional water-treatment technologies, such as filtration, distillation and ion-exchange are: ...
