Purification of salt water or brackish (slightly salty) water by removal of dissolved salts.
The process that removes salt from saline water to produce freshwater.
Removal of salts from seawater or other saline (salty) solutions.
Removal of dissolved salts from seawater.
The process of removing salt from the water.
process by which the concentration of salts in water is reduced to render it fit for human and animal consumption as well as for other uses, such as industrial.
the process of removing salts and other minerals from seawater so that it can be used for drinking water.
the removal of salt from ocean water to make it usable for irrigation, industrial, or municipal water supplies.
Basically, there are six different processes to remove the saline from water. Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis (BWRO), Electro dialysis Reversal (EDR) and Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SRO) are all membrane separation processes. Multiple Effect Distillation (MED), Multiple Stage Flash (MSF) and Mechanical Vapor Compression (MVC) are all thermal processes, which produce distilled water. In thermal desalting, the process involves some form of boiling or evaporation. In a simple still, seawater can be boiled to the point of releasing steam, which, when condensed, forms pure water. For membrane separation desalination, semi-permeable and ion-specific membranes can be used. Membrane processes are based on separation rather than distillation. Reverse osmosis membranes let water pass through them, but then reject the passage of salt ions.
the removal of salt (especially from sea water)
the process of removing salt from salt water
The removal of dissolved salts, such as sodium chloride, from water.
The removal of salt from seawater or brackish water to produce drinking water, using various techniques.
dee-sall-in-ay-shun Removing salt from sea water.
A process which treats saline water to remove chlorides and dissolved solids.
One of the processes used in the production of recycled water that removes salts and most other impurities by distillation or electro-chemical and/or physical means. See definition of salinity or sodicity.
Salt removal from sea or brackish water.
A process that converts seawater or brackish water to fresh water or an otherwise more usable condition through removal of dissolved solids.
a process that removes the salt from seawater by removing salt and other minerals from it.
Production of fresh (potable) water from sea water, salt or brackish water by one of several processes e.g. distillation, flash distillation, electrodialysis or reverse osmosis if salt content is not too high.
the process of removing salt from seawater or brackish water
The process by which high salt concentration in an artefact is reduced. It usually involves immersion in water, which creates a gradient in salt concentration, thus facilitating salt to move out from the artefact to the water.
The removal of salts from sea water (generally)
removal of salt from seawater using a semi-permeable membrane; the membrane prevents the passage of salts as the water is forced through it
any of numerous processes that remove the salt from salty water
The removal of dissolved inorganic solids (salts) from a solution such as water to produce a liquid which is free of dissolved salts.
Desalinization] (1) Removing salts from ocean or brackish water by using various technologies. (2) Removal of salts from soil by artificial means, usually leaching.
To lessen the amount of a substance in water by adding more water.
Desalination refers to any of several processes that remove the excess salt and other minerals from water in order to obtain fresh water suitable for animal consumption or irrigation, and if almost all of the salt is removed, for human consumption, sometimes producing table salt as a by-product. Desalination of ocean water is common in the Middle East (because of water scarcity) and the Caribbean, and is growing fast in the USA, North Africa, Spain, Australia and China. It is used also on ships, submarines and islands.
