A major component of a healthy society, water treatment systems allow for safe and clean water. This means salvaging wastewater or seawater and putting it through the process of making it drinkable. The more that is understood about the process, the more people can see the value and need for these processors.
For a seawater desalination plant, the process begins with raw water being moved into a depot. The water is then pumped into a pre-filtration system. This removes dirt or debris that may be contaminating the water. The pre-filtration usually has parts for the removal of larger items, as well as the removal of smaller particles in the water.
The water is then run through a reverse osmosis water treatment system. The reverse osmosis system has a permeable membrane through which water is able to pass through, but unwanted ions, particles, and other microscopic contaminants are not.
From here, the water is then put through another pump, and then hit with an ultraviolet water purifier. This light kills off any bacteria that may have remained in the water, ensuring it is safe enough to consume later on.
