It is inevitable for industrialization and agricultural activities, along with the increasing population on the world, to consume limited underground and aboveground resources. The fact that the decreasing resources become unusable, the problem of water supply becomes an important issue. This necessitates to use and develop such technologies that will protect and save an important source like water by time. Thanks to sea waters, an alternative solution to the ever-decreasing freshwater resources has been established and sea water treatment systems are getting more and more important.
Sea water and salty groundwaters are not suitable for direct use due to their salt content. Various methods have been developed for the removal of the said salt. Reverse Osmosis method, especially at low capacities, is more economical than other methods. Reaching all over the world with the same quality of service, Tes Water Group cleans the sea water from its salinity by using Reverse Osmosis Systems; and makes it suitable to use for drinking, use and processing water.
Unlike other reverse osmosis systems, sea water treatment systems are designed with special seawater membranes, high pressure pumps and suitable mechanical installations.
Sea water is primarily collected in the raw water reservoir through the water intake structure. Raw water is pre-treated by passing through the suitable filters as a result of raw water analysis to protect the reverse osmosis membranes before entering the reverse osmosis system. Subsequently, sea water treated with selected seawater membranes suitable for design is transformed into a state of use for various purposes.
While selecting seawater treatment systems; the characteristics of the spring water, its variability and availability, the pre-treatment and advanced treatment requirements of the process, the initial investment, operation and maintenance costs should be taken into consideration.
Pre-treatment in membrane processes is of great importance in terms of preserving the performance of membrane. Pre-treatment systems that do not end successfully lose their performance rapidly due to clogging, precipitation and membrane degradation. If there is a performance loss in recovery, membranes can be converted to production of water and water quality close to their initial state by membrane cleaning procedures using various chemicals.
