Clean Water Reliability, Desalination for Naval Defence
For vessel operators and teams working within disaster relief, medical emergencies and hostile situations, clean water becomes the most vital of resources. So it is not surprising that within Naval/Defence protocol, selection criteria for onboard watermaker and desalination equipment is so demanding, and pre-procurement testing so comprehensive.
Overseas counterparts stipulate explosive shielding on housing components, armoured cabling and metallic cable glands, higher weld and fabrication standards than standard civilian models, amongst other design modifications to ensure the durability of equipment that is not generally exposed to such hazardous environments. This usually necessitates custom designed solutions for Defence application, that increase overall spend.
Typically for light commercial, or general pleasure marine, standard watermakers will vary between a conservative output under 100L/per hour, through to a more industrious 500+ L/per hour. For large crews, or shore based facilities, that requirement would not sustain vital environmental functions like providing water for drinking and showering, and reactor grade cooling for equipment. Industrial watermakers are capable of this output, often at the expense of flexibility during installation, and reduced efficiency when servicing is required.Read more...
