Project Location
..\SysCADXXX\Examples\08 AQSol\AQSol Brine Concentrator.spf (early Build 139 versions)
OR ..\SysCADXXX\Examples\08 AQSol\AQSOlLight\AQSol Brine Concentrator.spf (Build 139.30918 or later)
Available in Build 139.30039 or later. (added in January 2022)

Features demonstrated

  1. The use of AQSolModelCfg
  2. The use of AQSolEvaporator

Brief Project Description

  • This aim of this project is to recover water from the brine feed to be used as process water in the plant, the concentrated brine stream is sent off to the solar pond for further evaporation and crystallisation.
  1. Each AQSol project must contain at least one AQSolModelCfg model.
  2. The AQSol Evaporator operates in standalone or Flash Train modes.

Project Configuration

AQSolModelCfg

  1. The AQSol001 dll (AQSol00132.dll) is used by the project.
  2. Salts First algorithm has been selected for species re-building. See Reverse Mapping section for more details.

AQSol Reactor / Flash Tank

  1. The configuration of the AQSol Evaporator is very similar to the normal Evaporator, the main difference is to select the AQSol Chemistry model to be used.

AQSol RO Plant

Project Location
..\SysCADXXX\Examples\08 AQSol\AQSol RO Plant .spf (early Build 139 versions)
OR ..\SysCADXXX\Examples\08 AQSol\AQSolLight\AQSol RO Plant .spf (Build 139.30918 or later)
Available in Build 139.30039 or later. (added in January 2022)

Features demonstrated

  1. The use of AQSolModelCfg
  2. The use of AQSolReverseOsmosis

Brief Project Description

  1. Each AQSol project must contain at least one AQSolModelCfg model.
  2. This project demonstrates the use of the RO unit for calculating max permeate recovery.
  3. Influence of antiscalant. This is modelled by creating a second AQSol configuration where we allow supersaturation of NaCl and Na2SO4. The concentrate RO skid (RO6) uses this configuration in its calculation of maximum permeate recovery.

Project Configuration

AQSolModelCfg

  1. The AQSol00132 database is used by the RO 01 to 05 units.
  2. A second copy of AQSol00132 database is used by the RO 06 unit to emulate the influence of antiscalant.
    • SatIdx for Na2SO4 and NaCl compounds have been modified in the "AQSolConfig" tab.
  3. Salts First algorithm has been selected for species re-building in both model configuration files. See Reverse Mapping section for more details.

AQSolReverseOsmosis

  1. The configuration of the AQSolReverseOsmosis is similar to the normal Reverse Osmosis (RO) Unit, the main difference are:
    • select the AQSol Chemistry model to be used and
    • model method: MaxYield for maximum permeate recovery.
