Abstract: In this work, an approach to study the long-term performance of an industrial water desalination plant is described. Operational data corresponding to the time period of 454 days were analysed and from the results obtained it was found that the normalized water permeability coefficient declined by about 7%. Due mainly to the temperature effects, the salt permeability coefficient exhibit significant changes only during the summer period. The equations used allowed a good description of the performance of the plant.
