Harnessing Natural Resources for Human Consumption
To ensure consistent and reliable supply, many communities, water authorities and private companies are turning to desalination to provide their water needs. Experience has shown that implementing an efficient system, under a cost-effective business model, can greatly reduce the cost of clean water.
Nirosoft custom designs, manufactures, and supplies state-of-the-art desalination systems for brackish and sea water. Desalination systems can be tailormade based on site-specific feed water characteristics and specific water quality requirements.
Sea water desalination systems incorporate energy recovery systems which reduce energy requirements by up to 40%, resulting in more economical production of drinking water. The company supplies small to medium size desalination plants with a capacity of 5–50,000 m3 per day. To reduce costs, energy recovery is undertaken by pressure exchangers or turbine pumps.
