HPB Turbocharger

Hydraulic pressure boosters or HPBs capture pressure from a secondary flow to boost the primary high pressure feed flow.

Our equipment provides the lowest cost permeate.
Why use a Turbocharger?
  • Absolute simplest stand-alone Energy Recovery Device
  • Lowest capital and installation costs and lowest maintenance
  • Best Life Cycle Cost (LCC) in SWRO systems up to 5,000 m3/day
  • Reduces the capital and operating cost of the High Pressure pump and motor
Why choose a FEDCO HPB Turbo?
  • CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) analysis is used to fine tune the HPB to your needs
  • Industry-leading three (3) year limited warranty 
  • Super Duplex SS 2507 is standard MOC
  • Custom built to your flow and pressure specifications in 3 to 6 weeks
Standard HPB Series
With ten (10) models, there is a perfect fit for your most demanding performance, reliability and project schedule requirements. Standard MOC is Duplex SS 2205, however, Super Duplex SS 2507 is optional. Brine nozzle valve actuators, flanged connections and other options are available. Delivery of the standard line HPBs are built to your flows and pressures specifications in three (3) to (6) weeks in Duplex SS 2205.
  1. Variable area in nozzle (needle type for precise control)
  2. Nameplate
  3. Thrust bearing – patent pending design, allows dry running
  4. Brine nozzle and volute
  5. Brine (turbine) impeller
  6. Rotor shaft
  7. Center bearing — lubricated by feed, ZERO brine leakage to feed
  8. Feed (pump) impeller
  9. End cap
  10. Multi-vane diffuser — radial pressure balanced for long wear ring and bearing
  11. Mounting foot (varies by model)
  12. O-rings — all bearings mounted on o-rings for easy removal
  13. Victaulic-type pipe joints (flanged joint optional)
  14. Standard Duplex SS 2205 MOC (Super Duplex SS 2507 optional)
  15. Can discharge brine at higher pressure for easy brine disposal
Mega System HPB
Six (6) models cover the largest current and anticipated SWRO trains. Standard MOC is Duplex SS 2205 with Super Duplex SS 2507 optional. Brine nozzle valve actuators, flanged connections and other options available.
  1. Brine aux nozzle valve (needle type for precise control)
  2. Nameplate
  3. Thrust bearing — patent pending design, allows dry running
