When the membranes in Train B at the Martin County Utilities, Jensen Beach RO plant could no longer meet the demand for water quantity and quality, Aerex® Industries was selected to provide services for the membrane replacement. Working in conjunction with Kimley-Horn & Associates and Hydranautics, Aerex® service personnel completed the custom membrane replacement of 312 membranes while limiting the down time of Train B to less than 12 hours.
After reviewing the system operating data and based on the Hydranautics projections for the new membranes, the engineers and owners requested Aerex® Industries modify the first stage permeate piping of Trains A and B with the installation of control valves. Flow-Tek 6” V-port valves were selected and installed to provide first stage flow control. In order to protect the membranes, rupture disks were installed prior to the control valves.
Due to continual problems of biological growth in the permeate hoses and difficulty performing maintenance, the utility department asked Aerex to provide a solution. Aerex® fabricated and installed hard piped PVC permeate connections with unions allowing easy end cap removal and eliminating the biological growth.

Client: Jupiter Island Club, Hobe Sound, Fla.
In early 2005, the management at the Jupiter Island Club decided that their existing two 200,000 gpd BWRO units could no longer meet the Club’s need for irrigation water. After exploring different options offered by several membrane system suppliers, the Club selected Aerex® Industries, Inc. to provide services for the membrane replacement and expansion of the system.
After reviewing the Club’s irrigation requirements, space constraints and desire to reduce operating costs, Aerex® took the approach of refitting the existing trains so that each retrofitted train would produce 300,000 gpd. This will be accomplished by replacing original pressure vessels and membranes and adding a second stage boost pump to take advantage of the latest technology in low pressure membranes.
The revised process allows the Club to produce 600,000 gpd for less cost of energy than the original 400,000 gpd system.
