The Largest water plant in Barcelona (Spain) uses Xylem UV disinfection solutions to reduce biofouling on their filtrations system and extend the RO membrane life time



Challenge: Desalination of brackish water and turning into drinking water.

Solution: A Wedeco UV disinfection systems upstream of the filtration and RO system.

Benefit: The UV disinfection prevented biofouling on membranes, extended lifetime of membranes or any filter using, membranes. The disinfection and filtration reduced all chance for blocked RO membranes due to bacteria, increased the duration of the maintenance intervals, lowered maintenance cost due to longer lifetime of membranes.
