Seawater RO Plant Design: Criteria to Consider

Seawater RO Plant Design: Criteria to Consider

When designing anything, whether it be a machine, a program, or a process, there are always a few key factors to consider that can determine the validity of the design. Over the past decade, water and wastewater treatment methods have been focused on developing solutions for the water scarcity epidemic with additional emphasis on sustainability. Seawater RO plant design requires careful analysis with several criteria to consider in the design of these systems.

In seawater RO plant design, one of the criteria to consider is the intake process of the seawater and the discharge process of the concentrated brine water stream back into the ocean.

Another important criteria to consider in seawater RO plant design is engineering the pretreatment process based on the water quality of the specific location.

Below, we will briefly discuss why these processes mentioned above are so important and a few ways to handle them.....
