Spectra Cabo 10,000 Watermaker 1,575 LPH on 3.5kW

Cabo 10000 Cabo 10000 -1

The Spectra Cabo 10,000 is an extremely energy efficient reverse osmosis desalination plant designed for Marine applications.
This unit can desalinate seawater water using just a fraction of the energy of conventional small plants. In fact, the
Spectra Cabo system is so efficient that it can reduce the size and the wattage requirement of the onboard generator
plant. This unit is built using Spectra’s revolutionary and proprietary new Spectra SP-20 Pearson Pump.

The Spectra Cabo 10,000 has a microprocessor based control system for fully automated control and monitoring. Water piping
connections are made with flex hose and “camlock” fittings for ease of installation and service.

The Spectra Pearson Pump is a breakthrough  pump design. This unique high pressure pump combines feed stream pumping and energy recovery into a single unit. The “Energy Recovery” feature of the Pearson Pump takes the energy entrained in the brine reject stream from the RO membranes and recaptures it, dramatically increasing the overall efficiency.

The system does not require continuous monitoring and pressure adjustment as it stays inherently in balance at all times, providing a constant  product flow and recovery ratio. The product flow can be controlled via the variable speed drive to the motor.

Having a set recovery ration prevents operators from tampering with the recovery ratios and damaging the membranes. The Spectra Pearson Pump is manufactured from engineered composites and super duplex stainless steel for extreme corrosion resistance.

The Cabo 10,000 is customizable and Spectra can design a complete operating system to suit your specific needs.
