Advanced Watertek doubles production capacity with overhaul of Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Sys

Redesign and upgrade of the existing SWRO System was carried out by the Advanced Watertek team in Fujairah.
DUBAI, UAE - June 7, 2021 - PRLog -- A Sea Water Reverse Osmosis System in the emirate of Fujairah was built to produce clean water for irrigation of a coastline development. When the system failed to deliver it's expected capacity, Advanced Watertek was approached to refurbish and upgrade the existing Sea Water RO system (SWRO). During the site inspection Advanced Watertek realised that the existing plant could deliver only a maximum of 40,000 US Gallons per day against the agreed capacity of 100,000 US Gallons per day.

Mohammad Farghaly, CEO of Advanced Watertek said "As a company, we are committed to product quality. It would have been easier to suggest a completely new RO system. However, our team was committed to refurbishing and automating the plant using existing components." The Design Team at Advanced Watertek went back to the drawing board to upgrade the SWRO system. Here is how they did it:

Transformation of the SWRO System from Manual to Automatic: Advanced Watertek introduced new instruments like pressure switches, conductivity analyser, pH analyser, flow transmitters and motorised actuated valves to revamp the old control panel and automate the existing plant.

Reduction in Energy Consumption: An Energy Recovery Turbine was introduced in the existing SWRO System. The client saved approximately 40% of their energy consumption by introducing an Energy Recovery Device into the system.

Use of existing components: The design team selected a High-Pressure Pump and Energy Recovery Device which would allow the existing high pressure pump motor & VFD to be utilised. This was a major cost saving for client.

Improved Product Water Quality: Replacement of the filtration media with appropriate sizes and number of layers was the first step to improve feed water quality. Additional RO membranes, cartridge filters, and an RO pressure vessel were added to the existing system. Last but not the least, low-capacity components like the Feed pump, CIP Pump, and High-Pressure pump were replaced with pumps equipped with superior material of wetted parts to avoid corrosion, increase durability, and match the desired output flow of 100,000 Gallons per day.

The upgraded, energy-efficient RO plant at Fujairah (United Arab Emirates) has been running trouble free for almost a year now, consistently delivering the required volume and quality. Farghaly summed up the essence of this job with these words "This was not just a refurbishment job for us. We delivered a well-designed system that offers quality, energy efficiency, cost saving, and above all long-term reliability."
