Seawater is the most abundant source of water available for purification. Within the boat industry, freshwater is a major necessity. It is required for almost everything in terms of preparation, washdowns, and general water usage while onboard. Although freshwater is carried aboard for general applications, it also takes up quite a bit of space and inevitably weight that can be easily replaced with a water filtration system to additionally prevent the necessity of refill water tanks. A desalination system would make an efficient alternative to water tanks for freshwater supply aboard.
Access to continuous production of freshwater while onboard by means of a desalination system like reverse osmosis is a prime solution to many of the inconveniences water tanks impose. This process is one of the most effective methods of supplying freshwater onboard. A reverse osmosis system will save the weight and space of water tanks while producing freshwater onboard on demand. As the weight on the ship decreases, the ship will simultaneously save energy and fuel during the venture. Additionally, the space that is normally used by water tanks and can be occupied for other purposes like added cargo or maybe more room for comfort. Having an unlimited amount of water supply also removes the restraining boundary of travel that freshwater supply requires. With a desalination system, there is no range that can possibly bind a travel venture as the need to refill water tanks or worrying about a limited amount of water supply would not exist. The freshwater that is produced can also be used for maintaining the boat itself. The usage of freshwater on the exterior leaves a much more flawless finish and will result in an immaculate exterior.
Seawater Reverse Osmosis System:
Seawater Reverse Osmosis system is a desalination system that can produce freshwater from the seawater source. Through the process of reverse osmosis, water is pressurized through semi-permeable membranes that only allow water molecules to pass; leaving behind all contaminants including salts. This process generates a permeate stream of freshwater and a reject stream of concentrated salts and contaminants that are disposed of overboard. Since the feed source of the system is seawater, the system is able to function continuously and produce fresh drinking water throughout transit. RO systems are comprised of advanced technologies that enable seawater to be not only suitable, but one of the most purified forms of water quality.
