Water Desalination Systems

The conversion of saline water into freshwater can be accomplished through three main processes, which are:

    1. a. Thermal desalination: This process involves changing water to a vapour or solid thereby separating the new phase from the remaining salt solution and then reconverting the separated water back to liquid.
    2. b. Separating desalination Systems: This process involves physical separating the various components during movement of the saline water in response to an externally applied gradient such as membrane; and
    3. c. Chemical desalination: Chemical desalination uses chemical processes but typical used together with membranes and/or distillation.
