Abstract

The Mechanical Engineering Department of the Kuwait University has purchased from ENTROPIE S.A. (France) a specially designed multiple effect vertically stacked desalination pilot plant with a capacity of 50 cum/day. The unit is designed to operate in multi-effect mode at any top brine temperature between 60°C and 110°C. The unit can alos be run with specially designed thermocompressors at 60°C and 110°C.
