Fresh water generator parts and functions
ATLAS-SPAREPARTS delivers top-quality parts for efficient freshwater production
A reliable supply of freshwater is essential on many vessels and offshore rigs. Instead of having to transport and stock up on huge amounts of freshwater, it can be produced right on site with a fresh water generator. By taking advantage of the seawater and the use of a freshwater generator, it is easy to have any need for freshwater filled.
Because the need for freshwater is important, the generator in itself becomes a highly essential piece of equipment. Our generators and any spare parts used are of high quality to ensure a reliable and safe source of freshwater.
At ATLAS-SPAREPARTS we are experts when it comes to fresh water generator parts and functions.
Fresh water generator parts and functions
There are different kinds of freshwater generators and sizes of desalination setups, but many of the marine ones use the same principles. In a freshwater generator the sea water is converted into freshwater by using a process with vacuum, evaporation and condensation.
The freshwater generator system can consist of multiple compartments, pipes and pumps. Here is a quick and simplified overview of a fresh water generator parts and functions and some of our products.
- Ejector pump – This creates vacuum by suppling pressurized seawater to the system. It also supplies cooling water.
- Evaporator – In the evaporator, the seawater is heated, typically by using waste heat from the ship’s engine. Because of vacuum evaporation starts at a low temperature.
- Condenser – After being filtered, the clean vapour is condensed by being cooled again in the condenser.
- Freshwater pump – Pumps the clean and softened generated freshwater into the freshwater tank for use.
- Brine pump – Removes brine from the generator and returns the salt, lime and other chemicals back to the sea.
When the water finishes its journey through the generator, it has been stripped of saline, toxins and other undesirable minerals. The high quality of freshwater produced makes it suitable for human consumption, but also as a technical water. This means it can be utilized in industrial processes such as cooling processes or as water in a high-pressure boiler.
Generators and spare parts for any project

Long history of providing generators and spare parts
Our experience with desalination and the generating of freshwater goes back a long way. Ours was actually one of the first companies in the world to develop a desalination plant that uses the distilling principle to convert sea water into freshwater. This was in the early fifties. To this day ATLAS-SPAREPARTS have maintained our love for the desalination technology as well as keeping up with new techniques, products, knowledge and more on the subject.
Quality, knowledge and great service are some of the cornerstones in our approach to helping customers around the world with their need for freshwater in the marine industry. Let us talk about how we can design the best solution for you. Do not hesitate to get in touch even if you have a niche request.
