LoWatt™ Membrane Desalination Process

Advancing Reliability & Economics of Desalination

Aquatech has developed LoWatt™ Membrane Desalination technology to focus on membrane desalination’s two biggest pain points: biofouling and energy consumption. The LoWatt process couples robust pretreatment, an optimized Reverse Osmosis design, and a proprietary cleaning mechanism to deliver the lowest cost of desalinated fresh water. The proprietary LoWatt process reduces energy consumption and delivers the lowest cost of water to customers. LoWatt is an energy-efficient seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) system designed for higher reliability and optimal energy consumption – up to 25% less than conventional SWRO. It integrates UF membrane pretreatment and a nutrient removal step while continuously deactivating bacteria without using any chemicals to mitigate biofouling.

LoWatt™ Process Benefits

  • Reduction in energy consumption compared to conventional SWRO
  • Lower chemical consumption
  • Lower membrane replacement rate
  • Less downtime
