Amiad to supply RO prefiltration to new US carrier
10 Dec 13 by desalination
Amiad has won a contract to supply automatic self-cleaning screen filters for the US Navy aircraft carrier John F Kennedy, the second of a new class of US carriers.
This follows the successful installation of Amiad filters in the first carrier of the class, the USS Gerald R Ford, which was launched on 17 November 2013.
Under the terms of the contract, Amiad will supply a pre-filtration solution providing protection for the reverse osmosis (RO) system to provide fresh water. Amiad’s filtration solution was selected to extend the life of the RO membranes as well as reduce operating costs.
