Clean TeQ Water were engaged to provide the engineering, procurement and construction of a water treatment plant in Oman. The plant uses a precipitation stage to remove antimony and arsenic, followed by Clean TeQ Water’s DESALX® technology to remove hardness and sulfates before water continues to reverse osmosis (RO). The process treats multiple waste streams from the plant and produces industrial quality water which is reused as process water.

The plant was required to treat a range of different waste water flow rates and qualities. There were also no existing brine handling facilities on site, so there was a requirement for high water recovery and low liquid waste production.
There was a restricted budget, so an efficient and economical process was required. Equipment also needed to be robust and resilient to survive hot and humid Middle Eastern conditions.
A combination of continuous ion exchange (DESALX®), precipitation, and reverse osmosis were used to treat the wastewater. The process is cost-effective, highly robust, and economical, meeting the client’s requirements.
