WAIV – Wind Aided Intensified Evaporation
WAIV – Wind Aided Intensified Evaporation: A state-of-the-art enhanced evaporation technology for treating brine, particularly reverse osmosis rejected waste. The device is operated by the wetting of evaporation surfaces, mounted on suitably constructed modules. A pump brings the water from small holding pond or storage tank to a distribution network on top of the vertical surfaces from which the vertical strips are fed by gravity. The device uses the driving power of the wind, which drives away excess humidity from the surfaces to intensify the evaporation process by a magnitude of 15-20 times more than a conventional evaporation pond!
