Energy Optimization with Energy Recovery Devices and Innovative Process Design Improvements with Applications in Membrane Systems
With advances in new RO membrane technologies only having minor energy reductions, reducing energy consumption by energy recovery devices (ERDs) and optimizing flow processes are the general approaches in desalination facilities. An overview of current ERD technologies and what developing new innovations in membrane process designs these devices ca...
Twin Turbochargers Provide High Permeate Recovery at Low Net Energy Consumption and Low Capital Cost in Megascale SWRO Systems
This study will compare conventional SWRO systems operating at 40-45% recovery utilizing currently available energy recovery devices with the twin turbocharger design operating at about 60% recovery. Also, the impact on center port membrane housings for reduction in membrane arrays costs will be explored....
