Overview: This industrial reverse osmosis system was engineered to reduce hardness and silica from river water for a Palm Oil Manufacturing Facility in Guatemala.
Industry: Boiler Feed
Water Concern: The water necessitated for the boiler feed process needs to at the very least, be rid of calcium and magnesium. These two elements are culprits to the hardness issue that arises when these elements are elevated. Likewise, hardness is generally a major contributor to scaling efforts and clogging potential of any metal surface. Purified water is necessary to facilitate a seamless operation while preventing additional labor costs and saving energy/fuel from overworking the system.
Applied Solution: The recommended system for palm oil manufacturing was the industrial reverse osmosis system. This system includes a six-stage process to facilitate a seamless production of pure water. Beginning with a prechlorination system, the iron and manganese present in the water is oxidized. Then, a feed pump pressurizes the water into a triplex multimedia filter to reduce suspended solids and turbidity. This particular project consisted of three tanks; two of which operated primarily and a third on standby to be used during backwash cycles to prevent interruptions in production. Thirdly, a duplex green sand filter was included to reduce iron and manganese accounts. Next, a de-chlorination system is in place to reduce the levels of chlorine prior to contact with the RO membranes. Before the RO system, is an antiscalant dosing system to ensure the seamless production of purification and prevent scaling or fouling from occurring. Lastly, the water passes through the industrial RO system and produces perfectly pure water.
The Reverse Osmosis System, model #TW-360K-8680 was supplied from our RO-500 Series along with a Triplex Media Filter and a Duplex Green Sand Filter from our MF-1000 Series.

This industrial reverse osmosis system was intended to reduce hardness and silica levels for Boiler Feed application.
Application: Boiler Feed Water Reverse osmosis systems reduce the dissolved solids that lead to scaling. Removing these contaminates improves the efficiency of all process machines including boilers and increases its ability to work at full capacity. The right RO system design will utilize ASME pressure vessels, filter tanks and high-quality instruments such as conductivity, pH and ORP meters. The pH level of water is an important factor for any process water efficiency. The system included all pre and post treatment equipment.
