RO desalination systems provide sustainable water production for residents in remote regions

On Utrik, a remote atoll in the Marshall Islands, the region's first permanent solar- and wind-powered water desalination plant is staving off the effects of a yearlong region-wide drought.

In May 2010, Tom Vance of Moana Marine LLC installed two Spectra LB-1800 reverse osmosis (RO) desalination systems, which convert seawater into 3,600 gal per day of clean, fresh, U.S. EPA-approved drinking water. Without the water from the desalination systems, life would be impossible for Utrik's 485 residents.

R2 and M2-Series RO systems are engineered and manufactured for commercial and light industrial applications and for feed waters up to 10,000 TDS. These high-efficiency systems use low-energy membrane elements that deliver high quality water at low operating pressures. This in turn makes AXEON R2 and M2-Series the first low-energy brackish water systems in the marketplace.

This forward osmosis process uses a semi-permeable membrane to separate water from salt water into a special organic solution across the membrane. The diluted organic solution is then warmed to cause the specially formulated organic solute to drop out, leaving only fresh drinking water after a final purification step through activated charcoal.
