About FEDCO
ABOUT FEDCO
Fluid Equipment Development Company (FEDCO) was founded in 1997 to
develop new fluid machinery to reduce the cost of reverse osmosis
desalination. The results included patented concepts, highly integrated
design and manufacturing software, and sophisticated manufacturing
processes.

That effort culminated in several lines of energy recovery turbines and


high pressure feed pumps uniquely suited for seawater RO desalination.
FEDCO designs every Commercial sales began in 1999 with a limited product line, which has
product it offers. undergone periodic expansions and enhancements.

Now, FEDCO's product lines are unmatched in quality and performance by


any manufacturer in the seawater RO market. FEDCO is a widely
recognized supplier with about one thousand units installed around the
world.

COMMITTED TO SUCCESS
We know RO. FEDCO equipment is designed and built to meet the specific
challenges of seawater and brackish water RO applications.
Fully integrated manufacturing
eliminates potential errors. We know the importance of reliability, the importance of low capital cost
and the importance of easy operation. We know what it takes for OEMs and
end users to make money.

Every part is measured for


dimensional tolerance.

FEDCO moves to new 20,000 ft2 facility to meet


the growing demand for our products.

about the HPB energy recovery feed booster
The Hydraulic Pressure Booster or HPB is a fully self-contained brine energy recovery device
for seawater and brackish water systems. With over 400 units in field service, the HPB has
earned a reputation for reliability, ease of operation and most importantly as the best value
in energy recovery today.

The HPB generates a pressure boost in the feed stream ranging from 20 to 40% of the total
membrane requirement. The unit is entirely energized by the brine stream. The brine and
feed provide all lubrication and cooling. The HPB includes an integral valve for brine pressure

resort SWRO systems around the world?
Simplicity of operation
- no special training for pump or ERD operation,
- employee turnover is inevitable, with FEDCO
equipment, retraining is quick and easy,
- want to use anti-scalant? no problem.

Low capital costs


- saves money for reinvestment in profit centers.

High reliability
- minimal equipment, no user maintenance,
- pump and HPB bearings are water lubricated
no messy grease or oil lubricants on the premises.

Ease of installation
- no special instruments or operating procedures,
