ERDs such as Pelton turbines are a critical asset for reducing the energy consumption of power intensive desalination processes. To ensure maximum recovery, fitting the most modern, efficient solution is best. However, this must be achieved without incurring costly changes to overall plant layout. Furthermore, an ERD retrofit affects the operating conditions of the main feed pump.
Join Sulzer experts Mario Alvarez Sánchez and Shane Harley, as they explain how to conduct a successful ERD retrofit while preserving modularity and taking these factors into account. This will assist participants in identifying the best possible ERD retrofit solution for their operations.
