HBCR High Brine Concentration and Recovery spiral membrane elements are available as stand-alone products or in combination with forward osmosis (FO) and seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) membranes.
When used within a stand-alone process, an HBCR train is capable of generating concentrate up to 200,000 TDS NaCl (at 1,000 psi / 70 bar) from permeate ranging between 35,000 – 70,000 TDS NaCl. In combination with more passes of HBCR, less than 500 TDS permeate is generated while still reaching 200,000 TDS concentrate, and thereby minimizing ZLD costs.
The most common application is the re-concentration of draw solution in Forward Osmosis membrane system, generating above 140,000 TDS concentrate.
