Freshwater generator to convert sea water
We manufacture freshwater generators for vessels around the world – a process that converts salty sea water to clean freshwater. We also manufacture spare parts to both new and discontinued freshwater generator equipment, delivered up to more than forty years ago. Furthermore we supply spare parts to many other types of freshwater generators.
Our freshwater generators AFGU range from single effect units capable of delivering 1,5 M3/24H to multi effect systems capable of delivering 1.000 M3/24H.
THIS IS HOW THE FRESHWATER GENERATOR WORKS
As an example, in the AFGU Single Effect freshwater generator the waste heat in the jacket cooling water of the Diesel engine is used for heating and evaporation of the sea water. The heat exchanger is connected to the jacket cooling water system of the Diesel engine.
In the freshwater generator, the cooling water is passed outside the tubes of the heat exchanger, and the sea feed water is led to the interior of the tubes, where it is heated and evaporated. The vapours pass through a separator, in which the sea water drops are discharged. The saturated vapour condenses into fresh water which is discharged by the freshwater pump.
