Desalination systems are the perfect solution to water shortages where there is access to seawater or high-salinity ground water. Desalination systems can be scaled to produce sufficient water for residential use or for businesses such as resort and hotels.
Aqua Treatment Technologies is proud to be able to offer Australian designed & patented membrane desalination systems that are made in the Philippines. The Australian patented design delivers a low-maintenance membrane desalination solution and local manufacture ensures the lowest cost. Now everyone can afford salt-free water!
Case Study: Desalination Systems In Puerto Galera
An increasing problem with the development of any tourist destination is the provision of potable water for resorts and hotels. Many locations have limited rainwater catchments or they rely on ground water that becomes increasingly saline due to ingress of seawater - because of high volume freshwater extraction. In Puerto Galera, in the areas of Sabang and Lalaguna beaches, the dramatic increase in the number of resorts and dive shops since 1980 has exceeded the capacity of available piped water from the mountain reservoirs.
For the El Galleon beach resort the short supply of water became a challenge and a desalination system was determined to be the best solution. An additional challenge was that, because the resort is right on the beach, the sea-air causes increased corrosion of most metals. Further, because Puerto Galera is relatively remote from desalination system suppliers in Metro Manila, maintenance and replacement of parts would be an ongoing issue.
A low maintenance solution, with minimal metal parts (principally connectors for high and low pressure hoses), was sought to minimize spares stocks and maintenance. The Aqua Treatment Technology membrane desalination system was chosen because the water channels are all combined into a simple molded end-cap - doing away with all but one high-pressure hose and connectors - and the unit is thus noticeably a more compact unit than desalination systems producing similar capacities. Low maintenance, compact unit = happy customer.
Scalable Desalination System
El Galleon beach resort guests currently consume up to 20 Cubic Meters of freshwater a day during the peak season; further expansion of the resort is planned. The Aqua Treatment Technologies scalable membrane desalination system meets the current water capacity needs of the resort, with water to spare. The desalination system is a scalable solution, and excess water in low-season can be sold to adjacent resorts to help them overcome the same challenges.
