    The Ultimate FAQ Guide for a Salt Water Maker.

    Saltwater has limited uses and with freshwater sources shrinking every day, the reliance on it keeps growing steadily. The widespread exploitation of saline water has been propelled by advanced desalination technologies such as reverse osmosis. We now have distinct equipment to desalinate varying categories of saltwater including brackish water and highly saline seawater. The underlying article mainly focuses on saltwater makers and how they convert saline water into high-quality potable water.

    Figure 1 Saltwater maker.

    What is a Salt Water Maker?

    A saltwater maker is a water treatment unit mainly utilized to desalinate saline water. Saltwater makers eliminate the dissolved salts in saline water to generate freshwater. They do employ distinct desalination technologies but reverse osmosis and thermal desalination are the primary techniques. Primarily, there are customized salt water makers for slightly saline water (1000 to 3000ppm), moderately salty (3000 to 10,000), and highly saline (over 10,000ppm).

    They are commonly utilized to desalinate seawater for coastal communities deprived of freshwater. Owing to their portable designs, they are also deployed in boats and other water vessels to provide product water. Additionally, they eradicate other pollutants found in seawater including minerals, living microorganisms, microplastics, and organic chemicals.

    Which Processes Are Used by Seawater Water Makers?

    Saltwater makers essentially employ distinct desalination technologies to turn saltwater into freshwater. Quite often, the primary desalination process is supplemented by pretreatment and post-treatment processes. Underneath we explore the primary desalination processes exploited by salt watermakers.

    ● Reverse osmosis.

    Saltwater makers desalinating brackish water or highly salty seawater, mainly utilize reverse osmosis. This is an advanced technology that utilizes pressure to force the elimination of dissolved salts using high-rejection membranes. Under pressure, the saline water is passed through the partially permeable membranes, which separate dissolved solids from water by size exclusion. A brine stream containing the ejected salts is discharged from the retentate side while a permeate stream produces freshwater. Click on the link below to watch an illustration of reverse osmosis desalination.

    ● Thermal desalination.

    Thermal desalination is also referred to as distillation. It is a desalination technology centered on evaporation and condensation. Essentially, the salt water is converted into vapor through boiling. This strips off dissolved solids and other contaminants with a boiling point higher than that of water. The vapor then penetrates the condenser where high-power fans chill it thereby converting it into liquid water. The liquid water is then collected as a distillate devoid of dissolved salts.

    What is The Chief Features of Salt Water Makers?

    Saltwater makers are uniquely designed to eradicate dissolved salts. Given that salts are characteristically corrosive; saltwater makers are generally manufactured using non-corrosive materials like stainless steel. The majority of saltwater makers are mobile and turnkey. They primarily exploit reverse osmosis desalination, which relies on high rejection membranes. Brackish water makers have a maximum TDS level of 15,000ppm while seawater makers have a maximum TDS level of 45,000ppm.

    Irrespective of the desalination process employed, typical saltwater makers eradicate between 95% and 99.7% of dissolved salts. Moreover, they eliminate other objectionable elements including illness-causing microbes, minerals, and organic compounds. They are also manufactured in varying designs including modular, containerized, and skid-mounted. Thanks to energy recovery technologies, they are considerably energy-efficient and inexpensive to operate. Reverse osmosis watermakers have relatively high recovery rates.

    Figure 2 Mobile saltwater maker.

    Which Pretreatment Methods Are Used in Seawater Water Makers?

    The composition and concentration of saltwater demand that saltwater makers are equipped with pretreatment chambers. Saltwater pretreatment gets rid of pollutants that could possibly foul the saltwater maker. Typical pretreatment systems employ distinct water treatment methods and beneath is a brief illustration of the chief pretreatment processes.

    ● Media filters.

    Media filters are often incorporated into saltwater systems to eradicate various impurities. Pressure sand filters, for instance, play the role of eliminating sand, debris, seaweed, turbidity, and generally all suspended solids. Multimedia filters also play a similar role but are more resourceful and efficient. They eradicate finer suspended solids bringing the TSS levels to 10-25 microns.

    Carbon filters are also quite popular in reverse osmosis salt watermakers. They remove a range of objectionable contaminants including suspended solids, chlorine, organic chemicals, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Pre-filtering the saltwater using an activated carbon filter also improves the water’s taste and odor.

    ● Ultrafiltration and nanofiltration filters.

    Ultrafiltration filters and nanofiltration filter systems are membrane-based filtration units dependent on pressure like reverse osmosis systems. They however have larger membrane perforations, which makes them perfect for eradicating suspended solids. An ultrafiltration membrane filter has a pore size of approximately 0.005–0.1 μm while a nanofiltration membrane filter has a pore size of 0.2–2 nm.

    ● Chemical dosing systems.

    A chemical dosing system eradicates numerous pollutants using chemical reagents. They are generally utilized to prevent the scaling or rusting of the saltwater maker. Antiscalants eradicate scaling pollutants such as calcium carbonate, barium sulfate, silica, and calcium sulfate. Antiscalant dosing is often carried out before the saltwater is subjected to membrane filtration.

    What Are the Main Application Fields of Salt Water Makers?

    As water-deprived areas proliferate, the use of water treatment equipment such as saltwater makers continues to balloon. Salt water makers have particularly become popular because of their proficiency in desalinating highly saline and slightly saline water. Their primary roles range from brackish water desalination to seawater desalination. They are employed to provide fresh water for applications such as human consumption, irrigation, and spot-free cleaning.

    Saltwater makers are also prominent in water vessels such as boats. The specialized boat water makers provide water vessels with fresh potable water for distinct usage on a per-need basis. They are also used in homes, industries, and commercial entities to remove dissolved salts from water. Here are the main applications of salt watermakers.

    • Boats and other water vessels.
    • Households and office complexes.
    • Irrigation and construction sites.
    • Spot-free cleaning.
    • Health centers and laboratories.
    • Pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
    • Emergency response.

    How Much Does Using a Salt Water Maker Cost?

    The cost of desalinating saline water using salt watermakers has been on a downward spiral since their inception. This has been enabled by the development of efficient membranes and energy recovery. Although the concentration of saltwater greatly influences production costs, contemporary saltwater makers are generally cost-efficient.

    The expenses accrued when running a saltwater maker include feed water, labor, repairs and replacements, installation, and power consumption. On average, seawater RO water makers cost between $0.79 and $2.38/m3 while brackish water RO water makers cost between $0.29 and $0.66/m3. Thermal desalination watermakers tend to be costlier, averaging $3.79 per 1000 gallons.

    Thermal desalination systems are relatively costlier due to their power consumption. However, NEWater manufactures energy-efficient thermal desalination systems with energy recycling features. Our reverse osmosis watermakers exploit energy-recovery devices hence they are pretty economical to operate.

    Can Salt Water Makers Desalinate Seawater?

    Saltwater makers are primarily designed to remove dissolved salts from any type of saline water. There are specialized saltwater makers used to desalinate seawater. These advanced systems are characterized by high TDS levels and anti-corrosive material. Typical seawater has a Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) level of 35,000ppm but there are saltier seas such as the Red Sea. Desalinating such kind of seawater necessitates a saltwater maker with a maximum TDS level of 45,000ppm.

    Seawater makers consist of a pretreatment unit that eliminates seaweed, microplastics, sediments, and suspended solids. A chemical dosing system or activated carbon filters are also included in the pretreatment chamber to remove acidity, water hardness, and organic chemicals. Thermal desalination and reverse osmosis watermakers are used in seawater desalination.  They ordinarily remove 95 to 99.7% of the dissolved salts producing freshwater with TDS levels averaging 300 to 600ppm.

    Figure 4 Reverse osmosis saltwater maker.

    ● Thermal distillation watermakers.

    These are salt watermakers that desalinate salty water using the distillation process. Essentially, they heat the saltwater until it evaporates and leaves a residue of the dissolved solids. Using a condenser, the vapor is consequently cooled to produce liquid water. They also eliminate other pollutants including suspended solids, ionized minerals, microorganisms, and proteins.

    ● Solar watermakers.

    We also manufacture solar water makers, which relies on solar energy rather than fossil fuels. Solar water makers can exploit solar energy directly as is with solar stills or indirectly like in reverse osmosis watermakers. They are quite economical since they utilize a freely available resource. Our solar water makers include solar RO watermakers and solar distillation systems.

    Can Salt Water Makers Generate Drinking Water?

    Yes. The quality of water produced by saltwater makers often meets the standard demanded by drinking water. They eliminate virtually all dissolved salts to produce fresh water. Saltwater makers are essentially used as drinking water systems in homes, boats, office buildings, and emergency response. The maximum TDS level of drinking water should not exceed 1000ppm and saltwater makers generate freshwater with a TDS range of 300-600ppm.

    Moreover, they eradicate biological pollutants, which can cause waterborne diseases as well as other physical and chemical impurities. The majority of drinking water makers incorporate post-treatment to advance the quality of drinking water. For instance, they utilize activated carbon filters to eradicate objectionable smells and tastes, UV sterilizers to kill illness-causing pathogens, and water deionizers to eradicate ionized impurities.

    Back to the guide ⇪

    How Much Energy is Consumed by Salt Water Makers?

    Thermal desalination watermakers have relatively higher energy consumption rates because they are primarily reliant on power. However, their consumption rate is considered energy efficient due to the energy recycling mechanism they exploit. Typical thermal desalination systems consume approximately 10 to 15 kWh/m3 to desalinate saltwater.

    Reverse osmosis watermakers mainly use electrical energy to run the pressure booster pumps and the user interface. They are also energy efficient courtesy of energy recovery devices and efficient membranes. Depending on the TDS level of the saltwater, RO water makers consume approximately 3 to 5.5 kWh/m3.

    Salt water makers can utilize energy from renewable and non-renewable energy sources. Although solar saltwater makers are not as popular as the ones utilizing fossil fuels, their prominence is steadily growing. Their reliance on solar energy makes them relatively economical and they are also environmentally friendly.
