Application: Commercial Seawater Reverse Osmosis
Water Challenges: Seawater has long-been depended on as a source for freshwater production in regards to using as drinking water or applying in manufacturing processes. However, the elevated levels of impurities such as salt and minerals has made seawater unusable in these applications and have required the incorporation of water treatment. Reverse osmosis or in this case, seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) is the most effective treatment method for the removal of high concentrations of salt and other contaminants from ocean water to convert into fresh, potable water.
Applied Solution: A commercial SWRO equipment to a major company in Mexico. The equipment came complete with an advanced microprocessor control panel along with pretreatment consisting of a multimedia filter and an antiscalant dosing system. The system was designed to produce 5,500 GPD at a maximum 40,000 PPM feed water TDS. The system was selected from our SWC Series. From their initial start-up, the equipment have been functioning accordingly with minimal trouble-shooting. Commercial SWRO equipment are designed for the purpose of treating seawater by eliminating enormous amounts of salt, solids, and other disassociated species found in it. To accomplish this, a high pressure pump is tasked with going against the osmotic pressure of a natural process called "Osmosis".
Osmosis is a natural movement of salt through a partially-porous membrane from an area having low saline concentration to an area having high saline concentration. Its objective is to achieve an equal amount of saline concentration on both sides of the membrane. Seawater reverse osmosis comes in to force osmosis in the opposite direction. It starts out by first moving seawater through various pre-filters to take out particles and solids from the water. Once the water goes through the pre-filters, it continues into a water softener tank for hardness removal. From there, the water is moved into the seawater RO system where a partially-porous membrane takes out solids and particles that the pre-filters bypassed. The RO membrane is designed to reject salts, solids, and other disassociated species and permit only water molecules to flow through. Once it goes through the seawater RO system, fresh, potable water finally emerges on the permeate side while salt, solids, and other disassociated species are dumped into the drain from the concentrate side.
This is model SW-5.6K-604 from our SWC Series.

Pure Aqua, Inc. designs and manufactures water treatment systems in addition to commercial SWRO equipment. In July 2012, Pure Aqua successfully manufactured and supplied commercial SWRO equipment to a major company in Mexico. The equipment came complete with an advanced microprocessor control panel along with pretreatments consisting of a multimedia filter and an antiscalant dosing system. The system was designed to produce 5,500 GPD at a maximum 40,000 PPM feed water TDS and selected from our SWC Series.
