Ship operators, relief agencies and military defense forces have a need to be able to produce potable water in virtually any location. To help meet this critical need, Pall has developed a range of mobile, fully self-contained water treatment systems designed to produce drinking water from fresh, brackish and sea water sources.
The IMS freshwater generator combines:
Hollow fiber microfiltration membranes with a spiral wound RO desalination system. The system is housed in a single 20' ISO container for transportation by land, sea and air.
20 ft Insulated ISO Container (height 2.59m /102")
5700 kg (12,566lb)
7000 kg (15,432 lb)
Power during Operation:
Power Supply Generator:
380-415V, 3 phase, 50Hz
The diagram shows a typical configuration for the WTS40 system. Source water harvesting equipment is used to provide the feed flow to the container. Pre-treatment stage consists of a single Self-Cleaning Filter (0). Feed is introduced to the IMS system via the Boost Pump (1). MF Control Valve (2) automatically adjusts the flow and pressure before the feed flow enters the MF Modules (3). The water passes through the membranes and filtered water exits through the top of the MF Modules. The treated water is then pressurized using the High Pressure Pump (4) before entering the Spiral Wound RO Modules (5). Within the RO membrane system, water will be split into permeate and concentrate. RO Concentrate Control Valve (6) controls the percentage of feedwater going to the concentrate and permeate. RO permeate is then further treated by increasing the pH (7) and adding minerals for taste followed by dosing chlorine (8).
The IMS freshwater generator is an environmentally friendly system with no raw cartridges to dispose of.
