Construction

The membrane stack is placed in a housing to control the supply and distribution of fresh and salt water, and the discharge of brackish water. In addition, the electrodes are incorporated in the stack housing. The stacks that were initially used for laboratory-scale experiments have been improved and further developed into larger stacks that are used at the REDstack pilot installation on the Afsluitdijk. The research on stack performance is done with real surface water from the Wadden Sea and IJssel Lake. The goal is to optimize both the stacks as well as the pilot installation operation: the objective is to maximize power and stack lifetime, taking into consideration the stack fouling due to surface water use. Simultaneously, REDstack is busy upscaling the supplied electrical power of the stacks by increasing the stack size, total membrane surface area, and improving internal feed water distribution.
