    The Ultimate FAQ for Personal Desalination.

    The number of households lacking freshwater epitomizes the effects of deteriorating freshwater sources. Demographics indicate that three out of ten people have no access to adequate potable water. A dependable solution to cover that deficit and potentially solve the global water scarcity problem is personal desalination. Contemporary desalination processes and equipment are comparatively cost-efficient and more resourceful. In this article, we dissect personal desalination processes and machinery.

    Figure 1 personal desalination system.

    What is Personal Desalination?

    Personal desalination is the act of converting saline water into fresh potable water for personal use. To accommodate personal desalination, manufacturers have developed small-sized desalination systems with low power consumption rates for homes and small businesses. Generating fresh, clean water for personal use is contingent upon several desalination processes.

    Evaporative desalination and reverse osmosis have been persistently utilized at a smaller scale to provide fresh water to households in water-deprived regions. To ease the hassle of accessing fresh water in coastal, arid and semi-arid regions, NEWater manufactures conventional small desalination devices that are easily set up and operated.

    What are the Advantages of Personal Desalination?

    It is inconceivable to dispute the benefits personal desalination has imposed on communities suffering adverse freshwater shortages. North African and the Middle East communities are the biggest beneficiaries of desalination technology accounting for over 70% of the global desalination systems. The biggest gain of personal desalination is that it utilizes infinite water sources such as seas and oceans thereby mitigating over-exploitation of freshwater reservoirs. Underneath are some of the gains users of personal desalination boost off.

    • An adequate supply of fresh sanitary water.
    • Removal of disease-causing microorganisms from feed water.
    • Help preserve freshwater sources.
    • Provide quality water suitable for small-scale irrigation.

    What are the Applications of Personal Desalination?

    The versatility and productivity of desalination make it a viable source of freshwater for almost all domestic activities. Virtually all domestic applications are water-centered and existing freshwater supplies are incapable of adequately meeting the demand for freshwater. Personal desalination has been paramount in combating freshwater shortage since ancient times and is expected to proliferate as freshwater supplies dry up. The following are sectors currently reliant on personal desalination for fresh water supply.

    • Drinking water for households.
    • Hotels and resorts.
    • Small businesses.
    • Small-scale irrigation.

    What Desalination Methods are Used in Personal Desalination?

    Thanks to innovation, you have the liberty to choose your preferred desalination process from a pool of highly effective processes. Technically, your choice is determined by the concentration and composition of your feed water given distinct desalination processes have differing desalination rates.  The two most commonly used desalination processes in small-scale projects are evaporative and reverse osmosis desalination.

    Reverse Osmosis.

    Reverse osmosis is undoubtedly the most prominent desalination technique. Depending on the concentration of the feed water, appropriate pre-treatment involving pre-filters and chemical dosing is undertaken. The resulting water, free of colloids, debris, and other large constituents is then forcefully pumped through semi-permeable membranes. The primary objective of this step is to eliminate the dissolved salts as well as other unwelcome impurities. Some essential minerals might be ejected from the water, therefore, necessitating post-treatment to adjust the mineral and PH levels.

    Figure 2 Reverse osmosis process.

    Evaporative Desalination.

    An equally effective and efficient personal desalination alternative to reverse osmosis is evaporative desalination. Often carried out using thermal distillation processes, evaporative desalination mimics the natural process of rain formation. Heat is applied to feed water until fresh water converts to vapor. Subsequently, the pressure and temperature are lowered until the water condenses. In a different container, the freshwater is collected ready for human use.

    Can Personal Desalination Produce Drinking Water?

    Desalination processes used to generate potable water for personal or domestic use are consistently very effective in eradicating dissolved salts from feed water. Desalination is currently an approved source of fresh drinking water as long as it generates potable water with salt concentration levels ranging between 300 and 600 milligrams per liter.

    To communities in dry and coastal regions, personal desalination is the primary source of fresh water. Reverse osmosis allows the readjustment of mineral concentration in desalinated water thereby generating high-quality, odorless, and tasty freshwater.

    Which is the Cheapest Personal Desalination Method?

    In the recent past, desalination has had a reputation that portrays it as an energy-intensive and generally expensive water treatment solution. However, modern technology in reverse osmosis membranes has brought about significant drops in energy consumption consequently lowering the operational costs of personal desalination plants.

    Additionally, a breakthrough in energy-recovery devices has been revolutionary in personal desalination processes. Compared to the early 2000s the energy consumed in desalination processes has fundamentally decreased by approximately 60%.

    Back to the guide ⇪

    Can Personal Desalination be Powered by Solar Energy?

    Solar-powered desalination is the oldest water treatment technique utilized by man. Comparatively, modern solar desalination is twice as effective and energy-efficient thanks to energy recovery technologies. Solar desalination can be achieved directly using solar stills or indirectly using solar collectors in the form of photovoltaics and separate desalination processes.

    Direct solar desalination produces potable water contingent upon the solar collector’s surface area and incidence angle. Approximately, this is 0.074 to 0.098 gallons per square ft. Indirect solar desalination permits the use of desalination processes such as reverse osmosis.
