Reverse Osmosis Desalination

Reverse Osmosis Desalination

A separation process used to reduce the dissolved salt content of saline water to a usable level.

The use of desalination overcomes the paradox faced by many coastal communities, that of having access to a practically inexhaustible supply of saline water but having no way to use it.�۝ ��� USAID Desalination Manual

1. The saline feedwater is drawn from oceanic or underground sources.

2. Water is pre-treated to remove solids and adjust PH level to protect equipment

3. Water is forced through membranes which inhibit the passage of salt

4. Water is post-treated by stabilizing the PH level (adjusting the acid/alkaline)

5. Water is stored and then distributed to communities when it is needed
