The MAXH2O aims to effectively reduce brine reject from brackish water desalination facilities by ensuring a more durable and efficient process. The technology increases water recovery and benefits both municipal and industrial applications, such as mining sites, power stations, and cooling towers. The system uses a semi-batch reverse osmosis (RO) concept together with an integrated salt precipitating unit to eliminate the recovery limitation caused by the water chemistry and allow the RO system recovery to be pushed to the osmotic pressure limit of as much as 98%. The system can be installed as a standalone or connected to an existing facility as a tail unit on the brine stream in order to maximize the facility’s production while minimizing the brine discharge flow.

Markland Specialty Engineering Ltd. (Georgetown, Ontario, Canada); www.sludgecontrols.com
The Automatic Sludge Blanket Level Detector enables water and wastewater treatment facilities to measure, monitor, and control solid-liquid interface levels in clarifiers and sedimentation basins, including dissolved air flotation units; sequencing batch reactors; the constricted area of lamellas; and automate the removal of primary, secondary, and backwash silt/sludge. The detector enables users to program de-sludge pumps to operate only when necessary, reducing energy usage, wear-and-tear on pumps, and downtime for maintenance. In addition, it helps in preventing carryover and optimizing feed density for enhanced dewatering. The detector automatically adjusts the beam power intensity of the LED-phototransistor sensors in its vertical probe, enabling it to accommodate thick or thin biosolids concentrations, or light flocs, such as in the overlying cloud layer. No calibration required.
