Pumping Systems That Go the Distance
Uptime matters. We design our line of high-pressure membrane feed and PX® Pressure Exchanger® circulation pumps specifically for seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination applications. We use corrosion-resistant material, yielding a long and reliable service life. When combined with our ERDs, our pump solutions offer you reliable solutions to generate cost savings through high productivity and efficiency. Energy Recovery’s range of pumps features the same precision engineering and high-quality standards as our leading energy recovery devices. Our customers trust them to provide improved productivity and optimized operations in high-pressure operating environments.
High-Pressure Desalination Pumps
Pressure is the essential driving force for SWRO desalination. In this process, high-pressure pumps force the seawater to pressures required by the reverse osmosis membranes. Our high-pressure pumps can deliver pressures up to 83 bar (1,200 psi). Their design is specific to the operational and environmental demands of a SWRO desalination plant using corrosion-resistant stainless steel alloys.
The ATMP high-pressure pump is a multi-stage feed pump ideal to combine with our AT TURBOCHARGER energy recovery device for small to medium-scale reverse osmosis systems with flows from 10 to 100 m3/h(44-440 gpm) and pressures up to 82 bar (1,200 psi).
The AquaBold™ high-pressure pump is a multi-stage centrifugal pump ideal for small to medium-scale reverse osmosis systems with flows from 25 to 272 m3/h (100-1,200 gpm) and pressures up to 83 bar (1,200 psi).
Circulation Pumps for PX® Pressure Exchanger®
Low-Flow Horizontal Pumps
Our low-flow horizontal pumps pair with our PX devices for SWRO trains with permeate production rates ranging from approximately 135 to 1,350 m3/day (35K to 356K gpd).
The UHP Circulation Pump can be paired with our PX U Series for an end-to-end energy recovery solution that maximizes efficiency and cost savings. The UHP Pump targets UHPRO processes for ZLD and MLD applications with flow ranging from 4.5 to 13.6 m³/h and is specifically designed to operate in an ultra high-pressure environment.
High-Flow Vertical Pumps
Our high-flow vertical pumps target SWRO plants with permeate production rates ranging from 640 to 10,000 m³/day (168K to 2.64M gpd). To optimize energy recovery, our circulation pumps pair with our PX Pressure Exchanger for an end-to-end energy recovery solution that maximizes efficiency and cost savings.

The world’s need for clean water is intensifying, driven by population growth, industrialization, rapid urbanization, and climate change. According to United Nations estimates, global demand for water will surge 30% by 2050.
Membrane technologies now offer an energy and cost-effective way to meet regulations requiring minimal liquid discharge (MLD) and zero liquid discharge (ZLD) for wastewater treatment. By employing energy recovery devices, those savings can be compounded while preserving system reliability and operability.
