Reverse Osmosis (SWRO & BWRO) Plants
With water becoming a scarce commodity in today’s world, it is essential that technologies be tested to desalinate or to purify water. One of the processes used to accomplish this utilizes reverse osmosis. This water purifying technique is being used to desalinate seawater and brackish water, and also used in waste-water treatment plants. In fact, reverse osmosis technologies are making their way into the oil and gas sector where there is an increased focus on reusing water for operations rather than exploiting limited freshwater sources.
Principles of Reverse Osmosis
Reverse Osmosis system uses semi-permeable spiral-wound membrane to separate and remove dissolved solids, organics, sub-micron colloidal matter and bacteria from water. Feed water is delivered under high pressure, where water permeates through minute pores of the membrane and is delivered as purified product water. Impurities in the water are concentrated in the reject stream and flushed to drain.
ACE Core Engineering RO systems are available in a wide range of models for treating water quality of varying Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) with different flow rates & recovery.
• Conversion of brackish/ seawater into
potable water for consumption
• Reduce the cost of De-Ionized water
for boiler feed and process
• Ultra pure water for electronics
• To meet specific requirements in
• Cooling tower blow down water
Below is a diagram outlining the effectiveness of reverse osmosis as compared to other water purifying techniques such as micro-filtration and ultra-filtration.
