Xylem features a range of scalable, low-maintenance reverse osmosis membrane filtration systems for desalinating water. Our water engineers specialize in designing energy-efficient desalination systems featuring energy recovery turbines that dramatically reduce the energy required to push raw water through the membranes.
Xylem products and systems for the desalination market include:
Custom-engineered reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF) membrane technologies including standard systems, custom-engineered systems, products and components to produce high-purity or potable water from brackish water and seawater sources
Ozone systems for oxidation of raw water contaminants (e.g., taste, odor, and color-causing compounds) to enhance the overall desalination treatment process
Pretreatment prior to desalination of seawater using dissolved air flotation in conjunction with media filtration systems or media filtration systems alone to remove contaminants that clog membranes
UV systems between filtration steps prolong service life of membranes by reducing biofouling
