U.S. Water Services presents new RO platform

By | February 05, 2008
U.S. Water Services has redesigned its reverse osmosis (RO) platform based on experience gained at approximately 40 ethanol plants, according to Mike Mowbray, the company's marketing manager. The RO platform uses Grundfos vertical pumps with all stainless-steel-welded components. The platform is designed with a variable frequency drive, which efficiently controls the pressure and flow from the pump, potentially saving plants thousands of dollars in energy consumption each year. The stronger structure, and higher-quality materials and instrumentation minimize water usage while maximizing membrane performance, the company said.
