Ultra High Pressure

FEDCO's HPB Ultra series of UHP Turbochargers are rated for pressures up to 124 bar (1800 psi) – allowing for operation far above the pressure rating of 83 bar (1200 psi) typical for conventional RO equipment.

The HPB Ultra represent the simplest, safest and most reliable UHP RO solution on the market.

The HPB Ultra is available in eight models to meet a range of flow rates from 3 m3/hr to 208 m3/hr, making them suitable for everything from small-scale industrial wastewater treatment to large-scale brine concentration applications.

For detailed information on the HPB Ultra series, refer to product specifications or contact us to find out more.
