This study investigates the accuracy of RO membrane manufacturer’s performance prediction software with respect to TDS rejection and feed pressure. Six commercial softwares were investigated and compared with real-world performance from facilities located in Texas, Florida, Arizona, Maryland, Kentucky, and Kansas. Preliminary conclusions indicate that membrane desalination manufactures’ software models are relatively accurate with respect to TDS rejections with less accuracy for feed pressure prediction.
