SMART Software for Your Plant
for Optimizing the Design, Operation and Performance of RO/NF, UF/MF Membrane Desalination & Filtration Plants, Systems and Projects

MASAR Technologies, Inc., is a recognized US-based international water desalination and membrane technology & engineering company, with 32 years of hands-on plant experience, technical expertise and industrial innovation, providing expert consulting, training and professional plant services worldwide, including pretreatment and membrane systems monitoring, evaluation, membrane fouling management, optimization, troubleshooting, upgrade, O&M manuals, process and product pilot testing.


Unique Software for Real-Time, Early-Warning Membrane Systems Fouling Detection, Measurement & Plant Performance Monitoring & Optimization

MASAR Technologies, Inc., licenses its real-time and early-warning Membrane Alarm System & Automated Reporter (MASAR®), developed based on the proprietary SMART(tm) technology that analytically measures and monitors the membrane system's fouling and scaling development on a day-by-day, and calculates the Fouling Monitor which allows the plant operator to take timely and corrective measures to address the situation before too late.

The software system is available in several versions applicable to single and double-pass systems, unlimited number of trains/skids, any feed water source and intake (open-intake seawater, brackish, well water, etc.), membrane process (RO, NF, UF & MF), system design, staging (1-3), configuration (spiral or HFF), layout and manufacture (Dow Filmtec, Hydranautics, Toray, Toyobo, DuPont, Koch, GE, etc.). The program's methodology is analytical and comparative, based on the same data collected at any membrane plant and required for ASTM-4516 standard normalization method.

Besides the 25+ RO & NF plants where the MASAR  was installed, tested, validated or tried worldwide, the following high-profile desalination end users acquired one or more licenses to the MASAR software:

  1. Saudi ARAMCO, the largest producer of oil in the world - 2 MASAR Plus licenses for Abqaiq BRO Plant.
  2. Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC), the largest produced of desalinated water in the world -  MASAR Optima license for Al-Jubail SWRO Plant.
  3. South Australia Water Corporation (SAWater) - MASAR Limited license for Penneshaw SWRO Plant.
