According to Aquatech, the AquaR2RO process features a configuration of membranes engineered to treat waters cost-effectively that are difficult to treat with conventional membranes processes. The company says that AquaR2RO can tolerate feed characteristics that are high in organics, dissolved oil and turbidity. The process can provide high recovery while handling high TDS water due to its ability to withstand higher than normal operating pressures.
Aquatech claims that the AquaR2RO process maximizes recovery across the membrane system and minimizes the volume of concentrate to be treated in the thermal-based ZLD with a brine concentrator and/or crystallizer. In most cases, it can replace the brine concentrator, thus optimizing the solution. In some applications, AquaR2RO can achieve more than 98 percent recovery.
Aquatech says that AquaR2RO is suitable for industries such as oil and gas, power generation, steel, pulp and paper, and where the feed water has high scaling/fouling potential.
