Desalination Essentials



This training program is a comprehensive educational initiative aimed at providing professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage desalination plants.Through it participants will gain insights into desalination plant design, engineering, and post-treatment processes, enabling them to address challenges and ensure efficient and sustainable operation of desalination facilities.

Program Objectives:

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Apply and gain an in-depth knowledge on the operation, heat balance, performance, optimization, start-up and troubleshooting of MSF and RO water desalination plants.

  • Develop a good understanding of thermal and flash desalination, single and multiple effects of evaporation, fouling, scaling and the recent trends desalination.

  • Describe the RO membrane desalination processes and the basic principles of MF and UF, including the fouling and cleaning of these systems.

  • Develop a good understanding of the basic principles and design of reverse osmosis technology (RO).

  • Discuss fouling, pre and post-treatment for RO and NF systems?Employ the method of disposal in brackish and SWRO and compare membrane and distillation.
