A Major Company in Saudi Arabia
In December 2008, Pure Aqua successfully manufactured and supplied an industrial seawater reverse osmosis system to a major company in Saudi Arabia. The system came equipped with a cleaning skid. The SW-31K-2480 system was designed to produce 31,000 GPD at a maximum 45,000 PPM feed water TDS and is controlled by an advanced PLC. The system was selected from our SWI Series. From its initial start-up, the system has been running properly with minimal trouble-shooting.
Industrial seawater reverse osmosis systems are mainly designed for the removal of enormous amounts of salt and other impurities from highly inconsumable water sources like the sea. These systems take use of a popular process known as “reverse osmosis” to help in seawater purification. The job of reverse osmosis is to defeat the osmotic pressure of a natural process called “osmosis”. Osmosis naturally pushes salt through a very fine membrane from an area with low saline concentration to an area with high saline concentration. The goal of osmosis is to gain an equal amount of saline concentration on both sides. To stop this natural process, reverse osmosis pushes osmosis in the opposite direction by using a high pressure pump that adds extreme pressure to the highly concentrated saline side of the membrane. The pressure pushes only water molecules through the small pores of the membrane while rejecting salts and other impurities from flowing through. Clean, potable water successfully comes out on the permeate side while salt and the other impurities are dumped into a drain from the concentrate side.
