High water recovery from a non-thermal brine concentrator

GE’s AquaSel system combines an industrial desalination unit and a concentration unit. The desalination unit is operated to typically remove 80%+ total dissolved solids (TDS) in the feed water; the concentration unit is specially designed to reduce waste stream volume from the system.

AquaSel is a breakthrough non-thermal desalination technology with extremely high water recovery. Significant research and development, along with GE’s leading expertise in industrial desalination and zero liquid discharge technologies, helped create AquaSel technology.
