Desal Systems has a history in water treatment spanning more than 50 years. Under the expert guidance of the late Mr James Jensen P.G (Team Leader at Parsons Brikenhoff – 200 GL Melbourne Water Desalination Project – Principal technical expert – Adelaide Metropolitan Desalination Project, SA Water), our team have the knowledge and expertise to ensure your water treatment solutions are economical to operate and environmentally sustainable. Our desalination plants are designed using the latest software to ensure the real time results are comparable to our desktop simulations. This minimizes risk and ensures that we produce water treatment solutions that meet your requirements.
There are several key areas of expertise we excel at:
Ground water treatment – is the most common form of water treatment usually sourced from a bore or dam. It is common for ground water to have high Total Dissolved Salts (TDS) which can be reduced by desalination. Sometimes the ground water chemistry will contain other elements including heavy metals such as iron (Fe) or turbidity (cloudy water) which can be removed using media filtration. When disinfection is also required, we provide a range of solutions including disinfection systems.
Desalination – Reverse osmosis is a filtration process that is often used for removing salts from water. It works by using pressure to force feedwater through a membrane, retaining the unwanted particles on one side and allowing the pure water to pass to the other side. This is the reverse of the normal osmosis process, which is the natural movement of solvent from an area of low solute concentration, through a membrane, to an area of high solute concentration when no external pressure is applied.
Media Filtration – a media filter is a type of filter that uses a bed of sand or other material to filter water for treatment and for irrigation, stormwater management and other applications. It can also be used for many other processes including the reduction of heavy metals, pH adjustment and chlorination removal.
Disinfection – The germicidal energy of ultraviolet light destroys illness-causing microorganisms by attacking the DNA at their genetic core. This eliminates the organisms’ ability to reproduce, rendering them harmless. UV water purification systems eliminate 99.99% of the harm caused by viruses and bacteria like E.coli. The UV water purification process usually involves water passing through a chamber that is exposed to ultraviolet light.
