The next 3 days are holydays again so I use my time cleaning my system.
Wednesday we had been to the most modern desalinationplant in Isarel in Plamahin near Tel Aviv. (30.000.000 m³/year)
The principle of membrane Desalination is quite simple...Salt water is pressed through a dense synthetic membrane (Like a very very very good sieve), which seperates water from everything including salts.
To makte this water drinkable again, a certain ammount of salts is added again.
In the Pictures you see a rack of highpressure vessels, in every vessel there are 8 modules inside with an diameter of 8' (ca. 20cm).
So enjoy the fotos and have a nice day:)
