Water desalination is a process that removes the salt content from a water supply. Removing salt and controlling salinity levels within your waterways ensures that water is drinkable, useable for irrigation and beneficial to livestock health. The desalination process allows salty, brackish water to become potable for multiple uses. With Hydrosmart salt water treatment systems, ion exchange in hardwater is disrupted, water becomes purified, free of chemicals, pollutants and, most importantly, high levels of salt. In this blog, Hydrosmart explains desalination and how it is used across Australia.
Desalination in Depth
Desalination is a common process for ensuring a secure water source, particularly along the Western Coast of Australia where rainfall is less frequent. Desalination plants pump large volumes of seawater through a filtration process, removing salt and other contaminants. Filtered seawater is then forced under pressure through special membranes that act as ‘reverse osmosis’. These membranes are so tiny that salt and other particles are separated from the water, leaving behind drinkable water and the by-product of brine.
When it comes to domestic, industrial, and agricultural settings, controlled levels of salts are required to keep your water balanced. Salinity levels are an important consideration in any water supply, but excess salinity can pose several problems for your water and what it used. Salt poisoning and dehydration in crops, soil erosion, infrastructure deterioration and threats to the surrounding environment are just some of the problems that improper desalination processes can cause.
Hydrosmart Salt Water Treatment Systems
Salinity levels in waterways can be controlled with adequate water conditioning, minimising their impact on the surrounding environment. Ion exchange in hard water is targeted using Hydrosmart’s saltwater treatment systems. The bonding between minerals and salts present in waterways is weakened using scientific resonance frequencies. Without the need for harsh chemicals, filters or maintenance, Hydrosmart provides an environmentally conscious alternative for your water.
