How It Works VMD is a thermal process using vacuum to induce a phase change from water to vapor to achieve a distilled water permeate and a very highly concentrated brine slurry. The feed water can be as high as 200,000 TDS, the system can be mobile or stationary, it operates within the entire pH range, it uses very low pressures, no chemicals, no membrane scaling occurs due to the homogenous hydrophobic PTFE membrane to achieve salt saturation with very low flux decline and high recovery rates.
Scope of Demonstration Concentration of high TDS wastewater streams to achieve Zero Liquid Discharge. The influent TDS levels are 60,000 TDS, 20,000 TDS and 100,000 TDS. The VMD will concentrate the influent streams to levels of concentration over 300,000 TDS with no antiscalant chemicals. The permeate will be at distilled water quality and can to be reused within any application. The technology operates within the entire pH range, the live demonstration pH level is 11.

Watereuse Symposium Phoenix
September 32nd Annual WateReuse Symposium - Meet Karen and Kyle at the 32nd Annual WateReuse Symposium on September 10-13 in Phoenix, AZ. They will be at booth #6 . The Annual WateReuse Symposium is the nation’s preeminent conference on water reuse and the only conference that is dedicated solely to advancing the policy, technology, innovation and public acceptance of water reuse.
The conference is located at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel, 100 N. 1st Street, Phoenix, Arizona 85004
This year’s Symposium will feature:
More than 100 presentations, panel discussions, and workshops.
A Technical Tour with a stops at the Town of Gilbert Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch and the Scottsdale Water’s Reclamation and Advanced Water Treatment Plant.
The AZ Pure Water Brew Challange—sample beers made with purified recycled water.
Dinner with dancing at The Duce and an optional baseball game (Arizona Diamondbacks versus the Colorado Rockies).
Please join us for a live demonstration, to view our technology in action, ask questions and see the results first-hand. This live demonstration will be held in Edmonton Canada and Southern California.
