Remove impurities, protect valuable membranes, and maintain your desalination plant wth Procera

Tackling seawater desalination requires careful testing and design early in the project lifecycle. GE’s Procera solution starts with pretreatment components that protect membrane desalination systems by removing suspended solids and impurities. After careful analysis of your source water and conservation needs, modular desal systems are then fitted to your application.

To support the lifecycle of the desalination plant, a complete line of products and services are available to help you stay current, connected, in production and on budget.

What this means for you:

  • GE designs and manufactures complete desalination solutions – customers receive integrated, high quality and consistent systems
  • 50+ years of experience and 250+ SWRO installations provide confidence in GE
  • Modular designs adapt to site and project specifications for a unique solution
  • Engineering and field services are available to design, commission, or start up systems

Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD)

Manage regulatory pressures and meet water reuse goals with an effective ZLD wastewater treatment plan

GE offers complete thermal and non-thermal ZLD solutions to manage tough-to-treat wastewaters. GE’s proprietary evaporators, brine concentrators, and crystallizers can help recover more than 95% of your plant’s wastewater while reducing the remaining brine as a product or solid.

What this means for you:

Zero liquid discharge technologies help plants meet discharge and water reuse requirements, enabling your business to:

  • Meet stringent cooling tower blowdown and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) discharge regulations
  • Treat and recover valuable products from waste streams
  • Better manage produced water
