Term Definitions

Kilowatt: The kilowatt is equal to one thousand (10^3) watts and is expressed like this: kWh. This unit is typically used to express the output power of engines and the power of electric motors, tools, machines, and heaters.

TurboCharger: A turbocharger, or turbo, is a forced induction device used to allow more power to be produced by an engine of a given size. A turbocharged engine can be more powerful and efficient than a naturally aspirated engine because the turbine forces more air, and proportionately more fuel, into the combustion chamber than atmospheric pressure alone.

gpm: A unit of volumetric flow rate meaning gallons per minute.

psi: A unit of pressure meaning pounds per square inch.

m^3/hr: Unit of measurement for the movement of a volume of gas (cmh) or liquid per unit of time.

bar: Metric unit of atmospheric pressure equal to 14.50 pounds per square inch (lb/in2), 1.02 kilograms per square centimeter (kg/cm2).

Feed Flow: Product flow to the membranes

Brine Flow: Concentrate/reject flow exiting the membrane

Pump Suction Pressure: Suction pressure to the high pressure feed pump

Required Membrane Pressure: Fluid pressure required by the membrane

Brine Pressure: Concentrate/reject pressure exiting the membrane

Turbo Exhaust Pressure: Turbo exhaust pressure from the Turbo Charger

It looks like the TurboCharger is providing more boost than your system requires due to the high efficiency of the device.

Energy Rate calculation uses industry standard centrifugal pump efficiencies. When you add your value to the Turbo Exhaust Pressure, we recommend a minimum of 1 bar. Energy Savings assumes an existing pump efficiency of 75%.
