Equilibar Used in MIT Reverse Osmosis Membrane Fouling Research

  • MIT case study on membrane fouling

Researchers at MIT implemented an Equilibar® Back Pressure Regulator to control pressure on a membrane used in reverse osmosis water purification research. The unit helped to eliminate noise in the data collected and allowed for automation of testing to increase practicality and efficiency. The research is part of an effort to improve the desalination and remediation of water.

Seven Ways to Dome Load

Equilibar’s back pressure regulators (BPRs) are dome loaded.  This means that the pressure setpoint is provided by a fluid that is fed into a chamber on the top (dome) of the regulator. The pressure of the fluid (either gas or liquid) is set by a second regulator called a pilot regulator.  The loading mechanism is Read More
