What is a marine water maker?

A marine water maker is a desalination unit that converts sea water into fresh water by using a reverse osmosis process that removes salt and other minerals, making it suitable for human consumption.

What is reverse osmosis?

The osmotic process involves the natural movement of a solution through a semi-permeable membrane without applying external pressure.  The membrane allows the passage of solvent, but not of solute.  In reverse osmosis, high pressure is used to push the solution through a membrane, which traps the solute on one side, making pure solvent obtainable from the other side.

Sea water recovery through reverse osmosis

For marine water purification, sea water is driven under high pressure, through a special membrane.  The resulting “product water” is potable water with over 99% of the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) removed.  The product water is directed, from the marine water maker, to a fresh water holding tank.  Permeate that does not successfully pass through the membrane is sometimes referred to as the “brine discharge,” and on vessels is diverted overboard.
