  • RO system [SWI series: SW-16K-1480]
  • Prechlorination
  • Dechlorination
  • Antiscalant chemical dosing system
  • Advanced microprocessor control panel

The reverse osmosis method deals with a high pressure pump tasked with applying high pressure to salty water, forcing it through semi-porous membranes while preventing salts and other minerals from flowing through. The amount of pressure that needs to be added depends on the ocean’s specific TDS and temperature. The RO membranes are only designed to take out particulates while dividing the feed water in between purified water and rejected concentrated salts. The salts and the other minerals are thrown in the brine stream then flushed into a drain. In the end, we have purified water with 99% less dissolved salts emerging out on the permeate side. Pure Aqua, Inc. industrial SWRO machines are manufactured and built to operate under high or low TDS conditions. Their built-in (VFD) Variable Frequency Drive permits adjustments for increasing or decreasing the operation pressure according to feed water TDS and temperature. Having both a VFD feature along with the optional Energy Recovery System delivers outstanding improvements to system efficiency and decreases electrical consumption. With today’s high energy cost world, it is crucial to have such features in any industrial seawater SWRO machine.


Water Challenges: Thailand is a developing nation with limited water resources and depends heavily on seawater reverse osmosis systems to meet water supply demands for industrial, commercial, and municipal needs. While the seawater has elevated levels of salt and other harmful minerals, the beach wells contain much lower levels of these impurities. Additionally, utilizing reverse osmosis systems for beach well water treatment is much more economical and environmentally friendly than treated seawater itself. As a result, countries such as Thailand have begun targeting these water sources for their water production, although the overall quantity of untreated water available to use in desalination from beach wells might be insufficient. So for the time being, beach wells are incapable of delivering the full capacity of water stream to seawater reverse osmosis desalination plants.



Applied Solution: An industrial SWRO machine was designed and supplied to a major company in Thailand. The machine came complete with pretreatment consisting of prechlorination, dechlorination, and antiscalant chemical dosing systems. The SW-16K-1480 system was designed to produce 16,000 GPD at a maximum 42,000 PPM feed water TDS and is controlled by an advanced microprocessor. The machine was selected from our SWI Series. From its initial start-up, the machine has been functioning properly with minimal trouble-shooting. An industrial SWRO machine is manufactured to remove large amounts of salt and other minerals from seawater using a method called reverse osmosis.
