The design and realisation of Reverse Osmosis (RO) installations is one of Logisticon specialties. The largest RO system realized by Logisticon is a 1400 m3/h RO system in the Rotterdam Botlek Area (see reference). This specialty has also resulted in a large number of mobile / containerized RO unit references - custom designed for each purpose. Three references are shown below - each project with specific design challenges. 

Mobile RO - 100 m3/h in 20ft highcube container

To put a 100 m3 per hour RO in one 20ft high cube container is a challange! Logisticon did design it and constructed 4 of these units for a client who uses these systems as back-up, temporary installation when shutdowns of local installation take place and also as rental unit for other clients (power industry). The mobile containerised RO unit is constructively reinforced as you can see in the photos. The system can still be transported and placed on site with a standard truck combinated with crane. These units has served their purposes already many times. 

  • Mobile 20ft RO - 100 m3 per hour - High pressure pump - 90 kW - use of electrical automated valves
  • Mobile 20ft RO - 100 m3 per hour - Side door container - Increased level floor in container - piping underneath
  • Mobile 20ft RO - 100 m3 per hour - Side view 1 container - Both sides double doors for maintenance purposes
  • Mobile 20ft RO - 100 m3 per hour - Side view 2 container - Both sides double doors for maintenance purposes
  • Mobile 20ft RO - 100 m3 per hour - View through contianer - Electrical cabinet with control panel
 
Containerized RO - Long term pilot trial - Anaerobic RO on groundwater / Infiltration concentrate

A 40ft container used in a long term pilot trial of treating high brackish anaerobic groundwater by means of RO without using antiscalant (determine the highest recovery). The concentrate of RO was infiltrated in a deeper salty ground layer. This containerised RO systems was designed in such way that every part of the RO but also the changes in the groundwater quality (conductivity, levels, infiltrating pressure due to scaling, etcetera) is monitored.

  • Containerised 40 ft RO pilot - CIP unit in back of container available
  • Containerised 40 ft RO pilot - Inside view including electrical cabinet with control panel
  • Containerised 40 ft RO pilot - One stage RO for treatment of anaerobic high brackisch groundwater
  • Containerised 40 ft RO pilot - Piping feed permeate and concentrate throug ground - insulated and traced above ground level
  • Containerised 40 ft RO pilot - installed on location on concrete stelcon plates

Containerised Double Pass RO systems - 2 x 25 m3/h permeate

The double pass RO system is realized in a 40ft high cube container. The clients wanted to have 2 separate double pass RO streets which are able to produce 25 m3 per hour permeate. Besides that the client wanted to have redundancy in the capacity of the pumps which led to implementing pumps (for both passes)  that are able to feed both streets at the same time when one pump falls out. This gave our Solid Works design engineer an enormous challenge to fit the complete RO installation with its interconnecting piping into a container. The elevated floor is need to create the interconnecting piping between the two RO units. The system is working in combination with an EDI system on a power plant in the Netherlands.

  • Containerized 40 ft Double Pass RO System - 2 x 25 m3 per hour - 2 x 2 high pressure pumps of each 45 kW
  • Containerized 40 ft Double Pass RO System - 2 x 25 m3 per hour - Extra high entrance escape door due to increased floor in container
  • Containerized 40 ft Double Pass RO System - 2 x 25 m3 per hour - Inside view container - increased floor for interconnecting piping
  • Containerized 40 ft Double Pass RO System - 2 x 25 m3 per hour - Pumps able to feed RO train both as well as separate - redundancy
  • Containerized 40 ft Double Pass RO System - 2 x 25 m3 per hour - staging first pass 3 x 2 - second pass 2 x 1
