Article
The paper analyses the extrapolation of the results obtained in a pilot plant to a full-scale seawater desalination plant. A technological system was implemented in the pre-treatment line of Las Palmas III seawater reverse osmosis (RO) desalination plant with a capacity of 36,000 m³/d. This system is aimed to control membrane fouling. It consists i...
Article
This paper presents the results of research work conducted as part of a doctoral thesis and undertaken with the aim of resolving the problem of accelerated fouling of reverse osmosis membranes (made from spiral-wound polyamide), as a result of the deposition of colloidal particles (particulate fouling), the precipitation of inorganic salts (scaling...
Article
Pre-treatment systems in reverse osmosis seawater desalination plants can be relatively simple or complex depending upon the direct function of the physical, chemical and microbiological quality of the water which is fed through the reverse osmosis membranes which separate the salts and the other disperse matter (colloids and micro-organisms) which...
Article
This article reports on the adverse effects on the microbiological quality of sea water with a high degree of biological contamination captured by an open intake system when it is subjected to intermittent, or shock treatment, doses of an oxidising biocide, such as sodium hypochlorite NaClO (KmnO4 O3, H2 O2), even though the purpose is to control m...
Article
This article reports the results of a process of optimising the dosage of Sodium hyplochlorite and Metabisulphite, performed on sea water in the pre-treatment division of the "Las Palmas III" reverse osmosis desalination plant, currently operated by Empresa Mixta de Aguas de las Palmas (EMALSA), responsible for providing drinking water to more than...
Article
It is hoped to make it sufficiently clear with this article that it is of fundamental importance that the reverse osmosis membranes and the conditions under which they will operate be appropriately selected. It is obvious that this choice must be made primarily in function of the quality of the water that will be processed in the water treatment pl...

This study explains from the fracture mechanics principles that the common size effect observed in fracture toughness and energy measurements of many engineering materials including concrete, fiber reinforced composites and even coarse-grained ceramics are in fact similar to what has been observed in the well-studied elastic–plastic fracture of met...
Article
CEDEX (Centro de Estudios y Experimentacion de Obras Publicas) and EMALSA (Empresa Mixta de Aguas de Las Palmas, S.A.) had been performing experimental tests for seawater desalination at Las Palmas, Gran Canaria Is., Spain, using a TOYOBO hollow-fiber membrane. A Hollosep HM10255FI module made by TOYOBO is used in the largest desalination plants ar...
