讲座题目:Recent technologies of desalination and pressure exchanger equipment




Many countries suffer from scarcity of potable water due to the lack of surface and underground water sources. To meet their needs, those countries resorted to desalination of seawater as the major source of potable water. Among the different technologies of desalination, sea water reverse osmosis SWRO proved to be one of the most efficient means of desalination. The reduction of energy consumption in SWRO plants is the driving force behind the development of energy recovery devices ERD technology.

This presentation reviews the state of the art of hydraulic ERD including turbine and pressure exchanger. In spite of the significant improvement in efficiency, ERD can still be benefit from new technology that achieve comparable efficiency while improving in cost of manufacturing, compactness, simplicity, and flexibility of operation. For this purpose two concepts of ERD are introduced and discussed, the sliding ball rotary work exchanger, SBWE, and the sliding vane work exchanger, SVWE. Two versions of SVWE, namely dual vane and quad vane types are presented and discussed including some results of simplified theoretical modeling.

All teachers and students who are interested at this area are highly welcome to share the ideas and inspirations on Monday.
