Ask The Expert: Desalination at larger scale
01/01/2004 
 
Question:

Q: I read "RO: New Device Shatters Seawater Conversion Conceptual Barriers" (G.G. Pique, WC&P, July 2000). I wish to process seawater to convert to brine and potable water (at a rate of) 500,000 liter per hour. Any suggestions? Many thanks....

Answer: 

A: The most practical technology for this application is reverse osmosis. It is commonly used for seawater desalination, and there are packaged systems available for this size application. Check with a local professional or peruse our online Buyer's Guide: wcponline.com/BuyersGuide.cfm. Hope that helps.
