Desalination Plant Pumps Potable Water 10 Miles

Posted April 23, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Dubbed the largest in the western hemisphere, the recently commissioned Claude "Bud" Lewis Carlsbad Desalination Plant in California takes in 100 million gal/day of cooling water from the nearby Encina Power Plant, and produces some 50 million gal/day of potable water. Its pump station features eight multistage vertical turbine pumps; also at work here are three large, vertical seawater-intake pumps. As reported by IHS Engineering360, the high-speed electrical pumps are acoustically attenuated to meet noise ordinances. The intake pumps are constructed from super-duplex stainless steel; the turbine pumps - double-suction, twin-volute models - are constructed from Type 316L stainless steel.
