Reverse Osmosis Package Plants – Refurbish and Commission

Problem Statement

Our client requested Watericon’s assistance with the scoping and refurbishment of 2 x water treatment containers that have been poorly maintained and possibly non-operational in the last 6-12 months. The project was based in the Limpopo region.


Watericon, together with the client’s team stripped the majority of the components, compiled a comprehensive list of what was required and swiftly procured all the necessary parts locally and internationally.

Typical Plant Feed

  • Brackish borehole water

Performance Target

  • Plant successfully refurbished and commissioned
  • 35-45 m3/hr water production per container ~ 90 m3/hr total
  • Recovery of 70-75%
  • TDS reduction of > 98%


  • Borehole water from multiple sources with high conductivity (estimated feed TDS of 2000-3000)
  • Low pressure feed pump
  • High flow cartridges in series (20 micron 🡪 5 micron)
  • Anti-scalant dosing
