C-EDR is a Next Generation Technology
It combines capacitive electrodes with special internal construction that together increases product yield, reduces energy consumption, eliminates gas generation, and electrode corrosion, and provides lower cost product water.
C-EDR is adaptable to changing inlet conditions and can accommodate variable product water demand with faster or slower throughput.
C-EDR is superior to RO and ED
Reverse Osmosis (RO): uses high pressure process requires expensive pumps, piping and vessels. High pressure membranes are a maintenance issue and require pre-treatment chemicals to reduce scaling/mineral precipitation.
Electrodialysis (ED): is an old technology. The ED process has very limited use because of high capital and operating costs, as well as potentially high maintenance cost due to corrosion and production of corrosive gases.
|Technology||Electrical Power Costs||Operating Pressure (psi)||Membrane Life Expectancy||Maintenance Requirements|
|RO||High (high pressure systems)||1200||Moderate (maintenance costs)||Medium – High|
|ED||High – Very High||10-30||Long||Low – Medium|
C-EDR solves water challenges
- Capacitive electrodes (protected by trade secret), eliminate corrosion and dramatically reduces operating power requirements.
- Patent pending spacers eliminate concentrate leakage caused by pressure change (osmotic flow control).
- Patented flow process improves output.
