Osmo Membrane Systems succeeded in refining the spiral wound elements to reach operation pressures up to 120 bar. Using such high-pressure reverse osmosis plants, high concentrations of salts and organic molecules can be obtained and therby downstream thermic systems can be improved significantly in capacity and energy consumption. Additionally, the capacity of an existing evaporation plant can be increased enormously by a upstream high-pressure reverse osmosis plant. Also, the energy balance of the membrane technology is superior to the evaporation by a decimal power.
The company has serveral years of experience in treatment of various liquids with high-pressure reverse osmosis plants. For the proof of concept with liquids, where no experiences exist, laboratory and pilot plants are available to evaluate the feasibility.
