Water Desalination

The major desalination systems currently in use are:

  • Distillation
  • Ion Exchanger
  • Electrodialysis (ED / DER)
  • Reverse Osmosis (RO)

Of these four systems, Reverse Osmosis is generally the most economical process in desalinating either brackish or sea water. In less than twenty years Reverse Osmosis has also become the most widely accepted system for water desalination .

WaterTec generally uses Reverse Osmosis for the desalination of brackish and sea water, not only in order to produce drinking water, but also to produce process water with low salt content or even to produce pure water for pharmaceutical, electrical and chemical industry.
