Desalination technology is utilized commercially to provide fresh water for many communities and industrial sectors around the world.
South Africa boasts a coastline of over 2500 kilometers which makes it an optimal source, considering the oceans as an abundant water resource. Reports show that desalination not only provides potable water but water that is safe to use in irrigation of plants and water for livestock. This is great for arid regions where farmers may not have direct access to a steady supply of water or areas that are experiencing a drought.
The feedwater is divided into two saline categories: brackish water (less than 60,000 ppm TDS) and seawater (greater than 60,000 ppm TDS). Technically, all desalination systems, have certain minimum requirements for energy and feedwater. Since all desalination processes can use multiple energy sources and can be designed for different levels of efficiency, many communities can benefit from it. Economies of size arise when increases in the plant size (kiloliters of water produced per day) bring decreases in the unit freshwater cost.
We will help you increase water production and recovery to achieve savings in capital and operating costs. Our reverse osmosis solutions have shown to be the most economical and robust options on the market often due its lower energy usage and high recovery, leading to lower unit water cost.
