The SALTECH range consists of seawater reverse osmosis desalination systems. These systems are a comprehensive range of standard and customised products developed and manufactured in South Africa. They are based on the reverse osmosis process, which has been under constant development since the introduction of the first experimental systems in the 1950s.
In simple terms, reverse osmosis is a “reverse process” that utilises the natural osmotic pressure difference between two salt solutions on either side of a membrane. Mechanical pressure is applied to the side with higher salinity.
The membranes play a vital role in the system by separating the fresh water from the “salty” or undesired water, which passes through them at relatively high pressure.
SALTECH is a local manufacturer of desalination systems based in the Western Cape, South Africa. Our systems are designed to be simple, reliable and efficient, ensuring ease of use while maintaining high-quality standards.
With years of experience and a thorough understanding of the market, we provide our clients with top-quality systems capable of withstanding the harsh environments of the African market.
A Quick Explanation on Desalination
Desalination is the process of removing minerals from saline water, making it suitable for human consumption or irrigation by removing salts and minerals from saltwater, particularly seawater.
The process of desalination creates brine, a by-product of freshwater production. Desalination is used by boats, yachts, land-based facilities and homes to make freshwater from high-salinity water sources.
