Get the engineering manual: Desalination

Desalination is the process used to convert salt water (seawater, brackish water or saline groundwater) to fresh water so it is suitable for human consumption or use. Most interest in desalination today is focused on developing cost-effective ways of providing fresh water for human use in regions where the availability of fresh water is, or is becoming, limited.

Download the engineering manual and learn more about the different desalination methods, how Reverse Osmosis (RO) works, intake water treatment, brine discharge, permeate treatment and distribution, control systems and water quality control.
