Published with the Water Environment Federation and WateReuse Association, this is a comprehensive, one-volume engineering reference on desalination. Desalination Engineering Planning Design and Operationcovers all aspects of desalination project implementationincluding planning and cost estimating, design, and equipment selection. After an overview of all key contemporary desalination technologies, the book focuses on reverse osmosis membrane desalination, which at present is the most widely applied technology for production of fresh drinking water from highly saline water sources. Offers theoretical principles of desalination and their practical application Presents a step-by-step approach for selection, design, and cost estimating of key desalination plant treatment components Contains examples in each chapter illustrating various technologies and their implementations Explains how to troubleshoot typical desalination plant operational challenges and operate desalination plants more efficiently
