Alfa Laval’s freshwater generators use the process of vacuum distillation to remove salt and other impurities from seawater and convert it into high quality, drinkable fresh water both onshore and onboard vessels.
Alfa Laval pioneered the compact and cost-efficient production of fresh water. Over 50 years ago, we introduced thermally driven freshwater generators with dual-plate-pack technology. Alfa Laval freshwater generators integrate state-of-the-art heat transfer technology. All heating surfaces are based on unique titanium plate heat exchangers combined with high-grade alloys for evaporator vessels and highly reliable auxiliaries. Both Alfa Laval AQUA Blue and Alfa Laval DPU are designed for automatic operation and use.
