9781118208526: Desalination: Water from Water

This is the first volume to cover desalination in such depth and detail, offering engineers, technicians, and operators full coverage of the applications, economics, and expectations of what will certainly become one of the most important water-related processes on the planet.  Covering thermal processes and membrane processes, this is the only volume any engineer working in desalination must have, covering both practical and theoretical issues encountered on a daily basis.  Certain to be an important contribution to the water management community.

From the Back Cover:

The most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of “green” desalination in industrial and municipal applications.

This book covers all of the processes and equipment necessary to design, operate, and troubleshoot desalination systems. This has become increasingly important for not only our world’s industries, but our world’s populations, as pure water becomes more and more scarce. Covering the fundamental principles of desalination technology and membrane processes to the advanced engineering principles necessary for designing a desalination system, Desalination: Water From Water is a must-have for anyone working in desalination.

Earlier chapters cover the basic principles, the economics of desalination, basic terms and definitions, as well as essential equipment. The book then goes into the thermal processes involved in desalination, such as various methods of evaporation, distillation, recompression, and multistage flash. Following this is an exhaustive discussion of the membrane processes involved in desalination, such as reverse osmosis, forward osmosis, and electrodialysis. Finally, the book concludes with a chapter on the future of these technologies and their role in industry and how they can be of use to society.

This book is essential for anyone working in water purification and conservation, engineers, technicians, scientists working in R&D, and operators of deslalination systems. It is also useful as a textbook for graduate courses in industrial water applications.

This outstanding new reference:

  • Provides comprehensive and thorough coverage of desalination technology
  • Covers fundamental processes and equipment for operating and troubleshooting a desalination system, covering thermal processes and membrane processes
  • Covers more advanced engineering topics for specific industrial applications, such as system design
  • Written in easy-to-understand language, the text is designed for engineers for use immediately in implementing a desalination program
