How is Sea Water Treatment Made?
Sea water contains 96.5% water. The remaining 3.5% contains salt minerals. This ratio may seem like a very low percentage at first, but it is not suitable for the ideal taste of water and therefore for direct consumption. While the salinity of sea water may increase in regions with high temperature and evaporation, it may decrease due to mineral dilutions in areas where glacier melts occur. In addition, the gas exchange between the seas and oceans with the atmosphere allows gases such as Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide and Argon to dissolve into the water. Oxygen and nitrogen are among the factors that determine the continuity of life in the seas.
Reverse osmosis method is one of the most widely used systems in sea water treatment technologies. It is a physical purification method that works with the reverse osmosis cross flow principle and separates the salt mineral found in sea water from the water with membrane technology. The distinguishing and defining element of reverse osmosis is the application of pressure to seawater.
With reverse osmosis, while the cell walls pass clean water, they separate the minerals and leave them behind. Thus, while drinking water remains on one side of the membrane, salt residues remain on the other side.
Sea Water Treatment Systems Usage Areas
It is used in many sectors, especially in industrial facilities and hotels.
Reverse Osmosis Sea Water Treatment Systems are used in ships, hotels, hospitals, holiday villages, municipalities, industrial facilities, etc. It is used in settlements where water demand is high.
