Nirobox BW lets you tap into previously unusable groundwater sources.

NIROBOX™ BW is a modular, highly efficient desalination solution for brackish water. It delivers potable water, industrial process water, and high-quality water for irrigation and other applications.

Designed for flexibility, Nirobox BW treats water from a wide variety of sources, including surface water, groundwater, and well water, and can handle turbidity, salinity, and a wide range of contaminants, from 1,000 to 10,000 ppm total dissolved solids (TDS).

Two cost-effective models are available to meet your water treatment requirements and deliver high-quality results:

  • Nirobox BW LP is designed to operate with feed water containing up to 3,700 ppm TDS
  • Nirobox BW HP can handle TDS of up to 10,000 ppm

Each is available in three feed capacities: 1,000, 1,500, and 2,000 m3/d. Output water capacity depends on recovery and water-feed specifications. All options are housed in a single, self-contained 40-foot shipping container.

Nirobox BW offers recovery rates of up to 90%, while boasting low chemical and energy consumption.

Nirobox BW’s patent-pending process includes a cleaning process for membranes that inhibits microorganism growth and scaling. This natural disinfecting effect lowers energy and chemical requirements and minimizes the plant’s ecological footprint.

Nirobox BW is ideal for a wide variety of applications, delivering the reliability and robustness needed to meet the operational requirements of municipalities, industries, commercial users, power plants, hotels and resorts, and others.
