Original seawater is supplied to a pre-treatment equipment, and a flocculated material produced by exerting a magnetic force and injecting ozone is removed by filtration. The seawater pretreated by the pre-treatment equipment is supplied to a reverse osmosis membrane module. Concentrated salt water discharged from the reverse osmosis membrane module is supplied to an electrodialyser unit. The concentrated salt water discharged from the electrodialyser unit is supplied to an evaporator. In the evaporator, the concentrated salt water is evaporated to dry solid salt. A part or all of desalted water discharged from the electrodialyser unit is returned to the reverse osmosis membrane module. Permeated water discharged from the reverse osmosis membrane module and evaporated water obtained by the evaporator are supplied as potable water.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
