Hello, i am working on my desalination plant proyect and i am having problems on calculate the pH of the fresh water right after the RO module.

 

I have tried with some Programs like Rosa FilmTec but everyone force me to use a membrane with the characteristics. I would like to know if there is a program where i can select the salt reject i want or if there is a program where i can select the concentration of the anions and cations and tell me the pH.

 

Thanks you very much

If you just want to calculate the pH due to ions for a specific chemical...

 

http://www.endmemo.com/chem/phcal.php

 

If you just mean the pH from the H+ concentration...

 

http://academic.broo...page/ph_def.htm

 

Although, fyi,  the projection softwares calculate the pH of the water, reject and permeate automatically... Its already inside ROSA...

 

If you mean something else... do clarify...

I have the anions and cations of the feed seawater and I want to reject the 98,2% of all the anions/cations and know the pH of that fresh water.

 

So I dont know if its possible to introduce the cations/anions of the fresh water and calculate the pH.

 

K = 8,7

Na = 202,01

Mg = 26,72

Ca =8,66

Sr = 0,216

Ba = 0,00018

Cl = 372,96

F= 0,02

SO4 = 53,46

SiO2 = 0,04

B = 0,08

Everything in mg/l

 

So i want to know the pH of the water with that anions/cations

 

I dont know if i am explaining clearly, English is not my main lenguage.

 

 

 

If that choice is in ROSA please tell me where because i didnt find.

Hi ,

Why don't you email to Dupont Tech Service ? They should be happy to support .

note : probably good to review the concentration ! mg/l?

 

Good Luck

Thank you very much

 

Whats the problem of having the concentration on mg/l?

hi,

the figures look  small, considering sodium and chloride for sea water ! NaCl should be about 3.5% mass .

my 2 cents

K, Mg, Ca and SO4 have too much concentration to be honest, but the Na and the Cl concentration is properly for fresh water.

 

I am wrong Na and Cl should be less than 200 and 250 respectly.

You are not understanding my problem. I already know the concentration of cations and anions after the RO module without using ROSA. The only thing i want to know it's whats the pH of the water with that concentration.

 

Probably I dont need ROSA for this but i dont know how can I do.

The pH of the water is already shown in the last row of the projection. I made a sample and put a red box around the row called pH.

 

If you are asking about the feed water pH, then that is defined when you do a feed study. For example, by taking past data and taking an average.
