High Recovery Solution

High Recovery. High Sensitivity.

Presenter: Winnie Shih, Ph.D., Avista Global Technical Support Director

As the industry pushes for higher and higher recovery, the safety margin for stable system operations gets thinner and thinner. Many of these systems are operating at a razor’s edge. Join us as we share some tips and tricks to help navigate through this challenging application together.

Tuesday, February 22
10:00 am – 10:15 am

Municipal Solution

Stubborn organics got you down?
Presenter: Jessica Foster, Avista Laboratory Services Manager

As the RO industry pushes the limits on RO systems; more unique, never seen before, foulants are starting to arise. These complex foulants are extremely challenging to remove with generic chemical cleaners and ultimately disrupt the overall quality and quantity of the product water. Explore ways to reduce cleaning frequency, extend membrane life and improve overall system performance by utilizing chemical cleaners specifically designed for tough foulants.

Municipal Solution

Avista 360⁰ Total Membrane Treatment Solution
Presenter: Megan Lee, Avista Global Laboratory Services Process Manager

Achieving stable membrane system performance isn’t always simple. Systems are complex with many variables that must be considered during the troubleshooting process. It is a mistake to focus on the membrane system alone and sometimes a solution goes beyond the selection of the correct chemical/dose – rather we must approach troubleshooting from a total system, 360° view. Please join us to learn how application support and membrane system expertise can lead your system to stable performance.

The Influence of Complex Ions in High Recovery and Brine Concentrator Saturation Calculations​

Avista Presenter: Matt James, Avista Research and Development Project Supervisor

As RO systems are pushed to increasingly higher recoveries, the concentration of salts in solution increases exponentially. This drastic increase in salt concentration demands more complex scaling calculations for proper system operation. One major factor in high salinity RO concentrates is the influence of complex ions on ionic equilibria. Complex ions play a major role in long-range electrostatic interactions between ions.  These interactions can drastically change ion equilibria and concentrate pH, both of which in turn affect the saturations of sparingly soluble salts. Traditional projection software was never intended to correctly calculate the influence of complex ions on high salinity concentrates. This paper presents a chemical model that uses complex ion pairing to project scaling chemistry at very high recoveries. This model was tested and validated during a high-recovery RO pilot study.  The model’s projection of scale formation beginning around 94% was confirmed with flux decline noted at 94-95% recovery and stable performance at lower recoveries. Membrane element autopsies also confirmed model predictions of the constituents that would govern scaling.

Date: Thursday, February 24, 2022​
Time: 8:15 am – 9:45 am
Location: Alliance 314
Session: THU02 – Fouling and Scaling Management

 

EXPERTS IN THE ROUND – Membrane Element Autopsy

Avista Speaker: Ken Robinson, Application & Sales Manager

Date: Wednesday, February 23
Time: 3:45 pm – 5:00 pm
Location: Alliance 307-309
Session: WED13 – Experts in the Round

 

MTC22 Membrane Cleaning Workshop​

Avista Speaker: Nagham Najeeb, Avista Application and Sales, Southwest

This workshop will provide an in-depth review of membrane system cleaning. Topics include cleaning strategies for low pressure (MF/UF) and high pressure (NF/RO) membranes, design of CIP systems for high- and low-pressure membranes, and disposal of spent CIP solutions. Presentations will include case studies from full-scale installations and troubleshooting membrane fouling for improved cleaning regimes. This workshop will also include a hands-on training component. Attendees will gain in-depth knowledge of membrane cleaning strategies from industry experts, including system owners.

Date: Monday, February 21, 2022​
Time: 8:00 am – 11:30 am
Location: Alliance 313
Session: PCW02 – Membrane Cleaning:  Cleaning Strategies for High and Low-Pressure Membranes
