A New Way Of Designing With Reverse Osmosis Membranes

Process design in water treatment is historically confined to proprietary or user-defined spreadsheets on a unit operation basis, with users manually adding results from each unit process upstream into the next operation.

Apart from being time consuming, the current approach to modelling when membranes are involved does not permit multi-train designs with multiple recycles across the entire process, leaving designers to build their own spreadsheet models for a given set of values obtained from vendor RO projection software.
