The PX U Series drives ZLD/MLD operational efficiency by reducing energy use in ultra high-pressure reverse osmosis (UHPRO) for wastewater treatment.
PX U Series
This recent case study, which focuses on the first site to commission an Ultra PX™ in early 2022—a lithium iron phosphate (LFP) plant in China—shows a significant reduction in both energy consumption and costs using the PX Pressure Exchanger for the second reverse osmosis stage and the Ultra PX for the ultra high-pressure reverse osmosis stage to capture energy otherwise wasted in the wastewater treatment process.
Energy Recovery has spent decades perfecting devices that capture and recycle otherwise wasted pressure energy. We have a suite of energy recovery devices (ERDs) that can operate at different pressures, dramatically reducing the energy needs, costs, and emissions associated with reverse osmosis desalination.
Our industry-leading energy recovery solutions include the PX® Pressure Exchanger®, Ultra PX™, and Turbocharger. Combined with our family of pumps, our solutions are trusted around the world by plants of all sizes to meet their specific energy recovery needs.
