Seawater desalination

Seawater desalination

More than 70% of the Earth is covered by water, with 96% of it being salt water.
Desalination is the process used to remove salt from saline water and create potable water.
The first large scale desalination plants were built in the 1960s and today there are more than 20.000 facilities globally that turn seawater into fresh, with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia being the country that produces the most fresh water of any nation.
To create a dependable desalination system that withstands the test of time and harsh environment conditions, specific materials must be used:

  • Super Duplex
  • Duplex Stainless Steel
  • 6% Moly Alloys

These materials withstand corrosion, stress cracking, have high strength and perform consistently over long periods of time in harsh environments.
