AqSep offers two series of watermakers to form the heart of your Reverse Osmosis based desalination system:
The ECO WATERMAKER Series and the BUDGET WATERMAKER Series.
Between them you will find a broad selection of units, meaning you will be able to find a solution ranging from private off-grid water supply to commercial use. Your turn key solution containing our unit, will be provided by one of our local partners, who will also carry out the installaiton and can provide on site service.
With our watermakers your fresh water production costs can come down to around US$ 3 per 1,000 gallons / Euro 0.6 per m³.

The BUDGET WATERMAKER Series is similar to the ECO series without energy recovery. This means, that these watermakers have the same extremely high quality and also use a high efficiency pump. For areas with low electricity cost you can benefit from a lower unit price without as energy cost will be of less importance. Units may occasionally require manual control of membrane pressure if there are noticeable fluctuations in seawater salinity or temperature.
Desalination units purify salt/sea or brackish water into high quality drinking water using the Reverse Osmosis (RO) process. Salt water RO is a separation process, using high pressure to force salt/sea water through a membrane that retains all salts and other dissolved and suspended matters on one side and allows only pure water to pass to the other side without the use of chemicals of any kind.
The RO method has been known and recognised for many years and is commonly used in desalination plants for public water supply, in hotels, hospitals and on ships.

Our watermakers can mainly be used in coastal areas and on islands where normal sources of fresh water are limited and/or of bad quality. The unit is not only suited for private homeowners but can also be used in hospitals and health clinics and for remote communities. It is also ideal for commercial use such as in small hotels, restaurants, camper parks, marinas, yacht clubs, island settlements and resorts etc.
Watermakers can also be used as a primary source or as a back-up for the provision of drinking water to police and military facilities, to public institutions in coastal areas or on islands. If you need more water than 22,000 liters per day (5,812 gallons) for the E-series or 18,700 liters (4,940 gallons) per day for the B-series, you can install more units in parallel.
See our cases for more information on off-grid water, water supply for private and commercial use.
The RESORT WATERMAKER can produce 11,000 liters (2,906 gallons) of drinking water per day (24 hours). A typical consumption of less than 1.5 kW power when desalinating normal seawater is possible. This brings the typical energy consumption down to about 3 kWh per 1,000 liters at 35,000 mg/l TDS (25 °C). This is significantly below the level of most other desalination units of this capacity.
The cost of production of water depends on which watermaker model you choose, the price of electricity, the degree of product utilisation, the cost of labour and the expenses for filters, spare parts and membrane cleaning and replacement. It may be assumed that for the ECO WATERMAKER Series, the total production costs can be as low as US$ 5-6 per 1,000 gallons or 1 Euro per 1,000 liters).
