Municipal Applications

Remove impurities, protect valuable membranes, and maintain your desalination plant with 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.

What this means for you:

  • Meet regulatory requirements on wastewater effluent limits
  • Drive compliance to your company’s environmental stewardship goals
  • Remove heavy metals from wastewater over a wide pH range
  • Use chemical solutions for soluble and/or particulate heavy metals, such as lead, copper, chromium, iron, manganese, mercury, nickel and zinc
  • Remove selenium with advanced biological treatment
