BrineGo: Modular Membrane Concentrator

Modular membrane concentrator for ultra-high recovery and volume reduction

Achieve ultra-high recovery and volume reduction with BrineGo — a modular membrane concentrator (MMC). Overcome scaling limits and reduce wastewaters to their minimal possible volume with a complete system based around reverse osmosis technology. BrineGo plants are assembled from Saltworks’ standardized brine management blocks, custom arranged for your needs.

RO-Based Concentrator System

  • Leverage standardized skids of 600 or 3,000 m3/day each, incorporating our BrineRefine scaling ion removal technology and XtremeRO ultra-high recovery reverse osmosis systems.
  • Achieve effective water management and brine volume reduction in a fully packaged plant.
  • Start saving on operating costs today by reducing expensive off-site disposal volumes.
  • Saltworks will provide you with a turnkey comprehensive system, optimized for your water and site.

Process Block Components

  • The system is built from repeating units of five sub-systems (shown to the left), arranged in a treatment train defined by your project needs.
  • Saltworks’ BrineRefine is packaged in 600 or 3,000 m3/day blocks to pre-condition the water for downstream RO.
  • Two Saltworks’ XtremeRO models achieve the brine volume reduction:
    • XtremeRO 1200: 1,200 psi (80 bar) – 80K mg/L TDS brine
    • XtremeRO 1800: 1,800 psi (120 bar) – 130K mg/L TDS brine
  • Our intelligent process engineering, ScaleSense real-time ion sensor, and total system controls tie the plant together for optimal operation.
  • Run a free project assessment today or get into details with a starter package that includes real water testing and detailed plant package development.
