A fresh water maker from sea water is a system or machine to desalinate of seawater through reverse osmosis membrane technology (SWRO). So, Chunke fresh water makers from sea water systems provide clean, safe and tasty water.
Our small size reverse osmosis desalination equipment helps to minimize the disadvantage of water scarcity by allowing decentralized water supply. So, Chunke fresh water maker from sea water machines are skid mounted, plug and play and easy to operate. Chunke SWRO plant production capacity can vary from 100 to 1000 liters per hour. If you need bigger capacity than this range, you can check our commercial sea water desalination systems and industrial sea water desalination plants accordingly.
Is there a machine that turns saltwater into freshwater?
Yes, fresh water maker from sea water machine is using reverse osmosis membrane filtration technology to turn sea water into drinking water.
How do you turn sea water into fresh water?
There are two method to turn sea water into fresh water.
1. Distillation and Condensation
We remember from science class, if we boil water, it makes vapor and if this vapor face with cold surface it turns liquid water. So, in this process, water rids of most of solid contaminants and salts. Distillation desalination is one of mankind’s earliest forms of water treatment, so it is still a popular treatment solution throughout the world today. In ancient times, many civilizations used this process on their ships to convert sea water into drinking water. So, today, desalination plants are used to convert sea water to drinking water on ships and in many arid regions of the world, and to treat water in other areas that is fouled by natural and unnatural contaminants. Hence, distillation is perhaps the one water treatment technology that most completely reduces the widest range of drinking water contaminants. But in this process, you need plenty of energy to heat up water and condensate.
2. Reverse Osmosis Desalination
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a membrane-based demineralization and desalination technique used to separate dissolved solids (i.e., ions) from solution (most applications involve water-based solutions, which is the focus of this work). So, membranes in general act as perm-selective barriers, barriers that allow some species (such as water) to selectively permeate through them while selectively retaining other dissolved species (such as ions). RO perm-selectivity compares to many other membrane-based and conventional filtration techniques. As shown in the figure, RO offers the finest filtration currently available, rejecting most dissolved solids as well as suspended solids. (Note that although RO membranes will remove suspended solids, these solids, if present in RO feed water, will collect on the membrane surface and foul the membrane. So, please watch our video from link, “How to turn sea water into fresh water, drinking water”.
Is it easy to operate and install fresh water maker from sea water?
Yes, it is very easy. Because fresh water maker from sea water machine is skid mounted system. You just need to connect, main electrical cable, inlet water pipe, fresh water output pipe and waste water pipe.
You can watch video and you can easily to understan how to install and operate fresh water maker from seawater from below video.
Can you drink water from a boat watermaker?
With a boat watermaker or fresh water maker, all it takes is one flip of a switch to fill up your tanks with safe-to-drink water. Chunke is your leading choice to find the ideal watermaker for your boat. For 20 years, we have provided the marine industry with the purest, highest quality drinking water.
How much does it cost to convert saltwater to freshwater?
In ft that it depends on capacity of fresh water maker from sea water machine. As regards to capacity, we are using high pressure pump. Bigger capacity needs bigger seawater high pressure pump. For 100 liters per hour fresh water maker electrical consumption is 2.5kW/hour. And all system cost is dependent on which brand and material you want to use in machine.

Is it OK to drink desalinated water?
Yes, it is safety and clean. So, desalinated water, provided that it’s clean, is perfectly fine to drink, and a lot of it is already being consumed both in the United States and abroad. Meanwhile, you can watch our detailed video about “is it healthy to drink reverse osmosis treated water.“
How do big or mega yachts get fresh water?
Big size or superyachts need to be able to produce their own fresh water through desalination. Hence, having a yacht watermaker (also known as reverse osmosis desalination systems) on board is a huge advantage because of the reduced need to have large, heavy water tanks on board for long charters.
How much does it cost to desalinate 1 gallon of water with fresh water maker from sea water?
Technology is imporing in reverse osmosis technology, so, it has brought desalination costs closer to other alternatives. Meanwhile, ten years ago, desalinated water cost more than $9 per 1000 gallons, but today, the range is $2 to $5 per 1000 gallons.
Does desalinated water taste good?
Desalinated water taste is same with most of bottled water. As you know that reverse osmosis systems remove most of minerals. If you want to get mineral water, we can add mineralization filter or mineral dosing to your treated water after RO Plant.
