Brackish water desalination

Ground or surface water with a high salt content is generally considered as brackish water. This water can be used as drinking or process water, however it must be treated by some kind of desalinating process. Dependent on the TDS of raw water, RO is considered to be one of the most effective and economical systems for this purpose.

The design and construction of a brackish water desalination plant depends on the TDS, the water analysis and the purity of the available brackish water. Thus, each plant must be designed individually and constructed according to these conditions. In this case, the cost of the plant and the water it produces will be considerably high.
You can find standard plants fitting this purpose at more favourable prices, although standard plants are generally to be considered as a compromise solution only.
Watertec also offers standard plants at favourable prices, however our customers do not need to make any compromises.
According to the customer’s requirements a standard design can be selected out of our delivery program and modified without any additional costs to match the individual conditions.
Furthermore, Watertec is prepared to design and construct a desalination plant reaching beyond the standard program to meet all requirements of private and industrial sectors.

Watertec’s Standard program for brackish water desalination comprises the following three series with a product water outlet range from 500 l/d up to 500 m3/d.

BW - HDW capacity 500 - 2000 l/d
BW - S capacity 5 - 45 m3/d
BW - M capacity 50 - 500 m3/d

Plants with a higher capacity will be designed and constructed separately.
