Seawater Desalination Systems

Reverse Osmosis Watermakers for Marine Vessels and Installations

Village Marine and HRO Systems watermakers are reverse osmosis desalinators that convert seawater into fresh water aboard your sea vessel. Seawater desalinaton systems purify water using reverse osmosis technology to treat seawater into purified water that is safe for drinking, cooking, and bathing. Purified water can also be used as industrial and process water or for disaster relief efforts.

Village Marine & HRO Watermaker Parts

Water purification systems that are not used regularly can come out of storage with fouled membranes. If this happens, membranes must be replaced. As an authorized Parker distributor, we can provide any replacement Village Marine or HRO watermaker parts.

Desalinator Membrane Pickling and Storage

When the desalinator is not used regularly, the membranes foul due to the decomposing mineral and biological residue left sitting inside. This especially true during the winter months and other long periods of non-use.

We offer a Pickling and Winter Storage program for our customers with reverse osmosis desalination systems.
