Costacurta has long-standing experience in manufacturing and supplying mist-eliminators and vico-tex used in chambers to treat seawater in multi-stage flash desalination plants.
This process consists mainly in the desalination of sea water for industrial use or for obtaining drinking water.
There are three main processes: multi-stage flash, thermocompression and inverse osmosis.
Mist-eliminators for multi-stage flash desalination plants
Desalination is carried out by flashing seawater in a vacuum, in a series of cascade chambers, operating at decreasing temperatures and pressures. The chambers have a demister to separate the brine entrainments from the saturated steam and a tube bank supplied with seawater that condenses the saturated steam and preheats the feed water.
Distinctive characteristics of the Costacurta internals used in the desalination process are:
- Long-standing experience in the design and production of this type of internals
- Optimised flexible production process
- Wide range of types and solutions
