Containerized Double Pass Seawater Reverse Osmosis Unit 12,000 GPD - Chile

Product Description

Application: Copper Mine to reduce chloride for their process

This is model SW-12K-1380 from our SWI Series.

Pure Aqua builds seawater desalination and water makers systems mounted inside standard ISO containers 20′, 40′ or 45’ facilitating transportation. The containerized systems are shipped ready to produce high-quality potable water within days of delivery.

This system in particular included all required pre and post treatment, along with advanced microprocessor and other accessories to make the system complete.

Hydranautics SWC6-MAX membranes were used in this SWRO containerized plant.

The seawater RO treatment system was fitted in an ISO 20ft container with AC unit and all interconnecting piping and wiring.

The containerized SW reverse osmosis unit met all customer’s requirement and provided a fresh water to the end-user.


Water Challenges: The impact that water quality has on copper mines is seen on the loss of reliability in groundwater aquifers, pollution of aquatic life, reduction in efficiency of farmlands, and dangers to public health. Copper mine operators prefer chloride levels to be very low for their process. As a result, we utilize double pass seawater reverse osmosis systems, such as this application which was in Chile, for the purposes of removing high chloride levels in the feed water used throughout copper mines.

Applied Solution: This Seawater Reverse Osmosis system is heading to South America and designed to produce 12,000 gallons per day with feed TDS of 36,000 PPM. The process of this system begins with a chemical dosing system (pre & post chlorination/antiscalant injections) followed by multimedia filtration and then the seawater reverse osmosis system. The product will then be filtered through a second reverse osmosis system that is designed to produce 9,000 gallons per day. The double pass reverse osmosis system is placed in a container that is air conditioned and designed to treat seawater by including an additional brackish water reverse osmosis system for further filtration.

    The actual DPRO has an even better design than the 3D drawing that we saw. Great quality and performance as well!
