Water treatment in reverse osmosis facilities, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration and/or electrodialysis reversal (EDR)

Our goal is to optimize your plant’s operating costs by applying the best treatment to maintain the proper water quality in reverse osmosis facilities, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration and/or EDR, thus improving their performance. We can achieve this goal by determining the exact causes of fouling, performing a membrane autopsy and designing the different cleaning tests which allow us selecting the most suitable reverse osmosis maintenance treatment and optimal product dosage in each case. Likewise, studies “ad-hoc” of input water allow us predicting fouling risks that we may find in membranes of each facility.

Use of the latest techniques to guarantee the success of treatments

For the maintenance of reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration and/or electrodialysis reversal (EDR) we incorporate in our studies the most advanced analysis techniques: optical microscopy of the deposit, studies with scanning electron microscopy, Energy Dispersive X-Ray (SEM-EDX) analysis and Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) analysis, among others. These techniques provide very accurate diagnosis of what is happening in the system and allow us making the most appropriate decisions for the maintenance of your reverse osmosis and other systems.

Exhaustive monitoring for an optimal treatment

We monitor operating parameters of the reverse osmosis plant before and after the cleaning with the aim of optimizing the cleaning protocol. This allows us choosing the most suitable cleaning products to remove the detected fouling, and determining the optimal product dosage.

Exhaustive control of the treatments with equipments and specific software

With the aim of facilitating the optimal product dosage and have a thorough control of the different treatments, we have developed different expert software to simulate water behavior in different facilities. These applications are a basic tool to design our treatments. Our experience in the sector turns into a continuous improvement in the development of our software and an adaptation to the new requirements of the sector. For this reason, we have incorporated to our software unique and reliable systems that include our expert knowledge.

In order to correctly monitor our antiscaling products dosage in plant, we have available equipments designed and developed by our R+D+i department. The equipments determine the concentration of the antiscaling active ingredient in our input or output water and let us make punctual or online determinations.

Available equipments

Adiconline RO

Measurement and record online system of anti-scaling active ingredient in reverse osmosis installations. It can optionally integrate a data acquisition module (Adicontrol Web) for remote inquiry of the levels of conditioning product in the installation e via internet, in real time.

Adicmonitor

Portable system to measure antiscaling active ingredient of ADICRO range products in reverse osmosis installations.

Adiconline FQ

Complete solution for the measurement, control and record of the main operational parameters in industrial cooling circuits. The equipment is customizable according to the needs and characteristics of each concrete case and, optionally, it can integrate a data acquisition module (Adicontrol Web) for remote inquiry of the installation state via internet in real time.

Dosing pumps

Essential elements to implement any chemical treatment. Their structure depends on the type of fluid to treat and the operational parameters (flow and backpressure). Dosing pumps can be governed by Adiconline and Adicontrol range equipments for integration in control laws defined to implement treatments.

Software

Adic

Adic is an application designed to facilitate the implementation of monitoring and control main operating parameters. It has a database where all analyzes are stored and provides graphical tools which allow analyse themeasured parameter evolution and predict trends.

It also includes a powerfuk knowledge base – generated Adiquimica accumulated experience in water treatment sector- that, depending on the results of analysis performed, automatically suggests corrective actions when it is required.

Optionally, it is distributed with:

  • Adicheck: Application for managing revisions at facility elements(equipments, pumps, filters…) which can generate and maintain a informatic record of their functioning.
  • Adicontrol: Application for monitoring and remote control of equipment installed.

Adic-ionic

Adic-ionic is a powerful software tool that combines a resolution algorithm of a several equations system describing chemical and ionic balances in a certain type of water and an expert system, where Adiquimica experience is collected in water treatment sector. This application aims to recommend, in industrial cooling circuits, product(s) and most appropriate dose for inhibiting scale formation of sparingly soluble salts into the system, control corrosion phenomena in recirculating water streams and prevent microbiological development in areas at risk.

Adic-ionic simulates water behavior in an evaporative cooling circuit, and predicts scaling risk into the system. Thereby, from a iterative calculation, Adi-ionic allows determine the optimal operating concentration factor to minimize feed water consumption maintaining supersaturation indexes below the maximum allowable limits. Similarly, and depending on the more restrictive metal presence in the circuit, Adic-Ionic also includes the presence of species with corrosive effect on calculation of optimal operating concentration factor.
