Kuriverter IK 110
5. System description
There is an investigation that the electricity consumption in SWRO is 2.4 to 3.5 kwh in order to make 1 m3 of production water (1). And RO’s clogging of biofouling makes the electricity consumption bigger. KURIVERTER IK-110 will be expected to improve the biofouling and decrease the operation cost.
