Four Years Later - Successful Performance of the Largest Seawater Reverse Osmosis Plant (33.1 MGD) in the Western Hemisphere at Point Lisa's Trinidad
Review of the seawater RO plants at Point Lisas, Trinidad....
After Six Years of Success, the 33.12 mgd SWRO Plant in Trinidad has a proposed 60% expansion to 52.8 mgd
This paper reports on the reliability of a desalination plant in its six years of operation in terms of water quantity and quality, energy usage and availability. The success of this plant with its open sea intake and high turbidity Gulf of Paria water, was summarized as the following; biological control ending continuous use of chlorine, a proven...
The Kinetics of Gypsum Crystallization in the Presence of Biofilm on RO Membranes
Both biofilm and inorganic scale adversely effect RO membrane performance. This study evaluates the kinetics of qypsum crystallization in the presence of a biofilm. The presence of the biofilm wass shown to accelerate the formation of the gypsum scale on the membrane....
