What is the advantage of desalination?
List of advantages of desalination:
- It provides people with potable water (clean & fresh drinking water).
- It provides water to the agricultural industry.
- The water quality is safe (not dangerous or hazardous to any living thing).
- It uses tried-and-tested technology (the method is proven and effective).
- It would preserve current freshwater supplies.
- It has the massive amount of ocean water as source.
- It is not dependent on changing factors.
- Its plants are safely located.
- They help with habitat protection.
 Desalination plants remove dissolved salts and other minerals from seawater and turn it to drinking water which provide a solution for areas that have limited resources of fresh water and a reliable alternative source of water in times of severe drought
 Desalination also produce water that can be used for irrigation, which is great for arid regions or in many areas around the world that are experiencing droughts.
 Desalination has been in use for decades now, and its method has been proven effective in creating fresh sources of drinking high quality water that is considered to be safe and reliable. The process has been tried and tested in many industries and applications over the years.
 As the freshwater supply on our plant is limited, we should preserve its resources by utilizing the method of desalination to eliminate water shortage crisis that the world might face.
 Seawater is almost an inexhaustible source to produce freshwater through desalination, so even in the times of droughts, there will be sufficient access to fresh water supply.
 Unlike the other solutions that heavily rely on uncontrollable factors like rain or snowfall, desalination does not rely on anything aside from the ocean or seawater.
 Desalination plants are usually located away from residential areas and some of them are located in in industrial areas, so they don’t put residential areas at risk.
 Desalination plants can reduce the pressure on freshwater sources. Also by seeing the ocean as a water supply, it might help with increasing the awareness in protecting the ocean.
* The recommended seawater desalination systems:
Desalination is the removing of salt and minerals from sea water to make it suitable for human consumption & industrial use. This is mostly by employing reverse osmosis to force salt water through membranes that allow water molecules to pass but blocks the molecules of salt & minerals.In other terms, desalination changes sea water into [...]
Antiscalant chemicals are used to prevent the scaling & fouling of the RO membranes. Scale may consist of mineral fouling such as calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, barium sulfate, silica, calcium fluoride, and strontium sulfate. The Antiscalant dosing should be done before reaching the RO membranes to break up sulfate precipitates, calcium carbonate, and other mineral [...]
The Desalination industry is relatively small; however it is a growing market. While water is plentiful, over 97% is too salty for human consumption. Desalination companies utilize the unlimited supply of seawater and through Reverse Osmosis or distillation, create potable water by removing the salts.Desalination systems consist of seawater intake (open or beach well), pre-treatment [...]
In the world of water purification and treatment, having an Ultraviolet or UV sterilizer can make your water healthier and prolong the life of water that has been treated and processed. What a UV sterilizer does is it further cleans the water and kills any of those nasty little bacteria and microorganisms that can still [...]
Water softening is a key step in treating hard or raw water. Without this step, minerals and materials in raw water such as calcium, magnesium and various others can build up to damage the water treatment equipment; specifically the membranes used to clean water. Removal of these materials can be achieved by ion exchange.This process [...]
Multi-media water filter systems are ideally suited for use where stringent water quality standards are required or where higher levels of suspended solids are present. These applications can include re-use applications, water pre-treatment applications for reverse osmosis and deionization systems or as a pre-treatment system prior to disposable bag or cartridge filters.Multi-media filters remove suspended [...]
Pure Aqua designs complete water filtration systems as well as industrial reverse osmosis equipment. Industrial reverse osmosis equipment was shipped to a major company in Ecuador. The reverse osmosis equipment was selected from our RO-400 series, and is pre-treated with dechlorination chemicals and an antiscalant chemical. The system with pretreatment is capable of producing 87,000 [...]
Pure Aqua designs complete water filtration systems as well as reverse osmosis water systems. In December 2013, a reverse osmosis water system was supplied to a major company in Sri Lanka. The system included five reverse osmosis systems selected from our RO-200 series, seven chemical injection systems for pretreatment, and ten multimedia filters selected from [...]
Pure Aqua, Inc. designs and manufactures water treatment systems in addition to reverse osmosis electrodeionization (RO-EDI) water treatment systems. In August 2012, Pure Aqua designed and manufactured reverse osmosis electrodeionization (RO-EDI) water treatment systems to provide purified water for the Iraqi Government. The 10 m3/h system was designed with 100% redundancy (two identical trains).
