The tests were carrying out aside of Valdelentisco desalination plant with a production capacity of 1.500 m3/day. The aim of this pilot plant is to achieve a more affordable desalinated water from the point of view of energy and environment using a combined high efficiency positive displacement pump and an energy recovery device together with the appropriate selection of the recovery lets get the lowest energy consumption, a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly desalinated water. The conversion rate is lower than conventional systems resulting in a higher pretreatment flow, what is resolved with an improved ultrafiltration pre-treatment that enables a higher hydraulic efficiency and a low consumption of chemicals.
