Design Specifications

Aqua-life builds different types of seawater desalination systems. The system includes three different blocks: the pre-treatment block, RO block, and desalinated water storage block. It uses a high-pressure pump combined with an energy recovery exchanger to reduce energy consumption and increase efficiency. The system is manufactured for two conditions: either as an indoor unit or as an outdoor unit. The indoor unit is a frame-mounted unit and the outdoor unit is a containerized type plant.

Product Schematics

Technical Support

Provided by the manufacturer

Replacement Components




Manufacturer Specified Performance Parameters

Reduced energy consumption through the use of external energy recovery device.

Vetted Performance Status

60% of the driven energy of the system comes from the high-pressure brine that passes through the unique pump. This is due to the integrated energy recovery device.



Complementary Technical Systems

The manufacturer also sells a patented high pressure pump that has an integrated built-in internal energy recovery device; individual reverse osmosis plants integrated with the energy recovery system; a range of desalination systems for seawater vessels.
