Scenes

  • - During desalination, seawater is evaporated in distilleries, separating salt from the water. The vapor then condenses, and the result is clean drinking water.

  • - The drained vapor is compressed and thereby heated.
  • - The heat of the pipe causes seawater to evaporate, its salt content precipitates, then the vapor is conveyed into the next container.
