Research Institution
There is potential for the Navy to improve shipboard desalinization using state of the art Reverse Osmosis (RO) with pressurized feedback. We are proposing not only to provide the highest efficient RO technology, but done so in a package to reduce the weight of the system, reduce the noise during operation, reduce the maintenance required by extending periods between maintenance, simplify the maintenance and increase the ruggedness or durability. This is possible with optimal materials, an optimized design and implementing this with an existing RO, energy recovery pump; the Spectra-Pearson Pump. The Spectra-Pearson Pump is a low speed positive displacement reciprocating plunger pump with advanced energy recovery that allows a seawater source to be desalinated at 8 kWh/Kgal or 2.1 kWh/m^3.
