ship watermaker / evaporator
The Wärtsilä Serck Como multi-stage flash (MSF) evaporator is utilised for producing fresh water from seawater, well water or industrial water.
A special advantage of the multi-stage flash technology is that the specific heat consumption (or thermal efficiency) can be continuously adapted to the individual requirements of each application.
The produced distillate has a very low salt content which makes it suitable as technical water (e.g. boiler feed water). The distillate quality and quantity are independent from the seawater temperature which makes the MSF technology a reliable source for freshwater.
