Sea water contains approximately 35,000 milligram per litre of dissolved salts. The sea water is pumped into the reverse osmosis membranes at 50 to 60 Bar pressure. Approximately a third of the water passes through the membrane leaving the salt behind. Desalinator pure water usually contains less than 500 milligrams per litre. The remainingg two thirds of the sea water is now concentrated in dissolved salts of approximately 52,000 milligrams per litre and is usually retrurned to the sea. Reverse osmosis is not particularly suited to removing suspended solids such as silt or organic chemicals such as tannins. Additional water treatment methods may be required particularly when operating in turbid river esturies. The reverse osmosis sea water desalinator units can be supplied as stand alone modules, skid mounted systems including pretreatment equipment, enclose cabinet models and transportable shipping containers.
Engineered with proven durable components to ensure reliable operation and minimal down time
Supported by factory trained technicians who are available for commissioning and routine maintenance.
Reverse Osmosis watermakers can be used to remove dissolved solids including mineral salts and other inorganic chemicals from sea water
It is the desalination technology of choice of most commercial shipping and shore based communities
Desalinators, sometimes called watermakers, typically operate at pressures of 50 to 60 Bar depending upon the water temperature. Sea water desalinators often operate in remote locations and harsh conditions.

Vertex Hydropore | Water Purification Systems
Vertex Hydropore specialises in the supply of membrane water purification systems to a wide range of industry, agricultural and government organisations. Established in 1994, we now distribute Australia wide through a network of skilled water treatment consultants, primarily selected due to their ability to support local customers needs.
While competent design and good manufacturing practice are an essential start, they must be supported by comprehensive field service. Vertex Hydropore carry a comprehensive range of spare parts for every model ex stock, Sydney. Our factory trained service staff understand that treated water is essential to our customers’ and are available at short notice, usually within 1 working day. Organisations such as pharmaceutical manufacturers rely on Vertex Hydropore RO systems for their daily operations.
Vertex Hydropore made the decision to manufacture in Australia in order to merge optimum technologies from different component suppliers with the specific needs of the Australian market. We provide off the shelf production models that ensure continuity of spare parts. Only industry standard size membranes and filters are used to ensure future supply. Pumps are procured from manufacturers with major Australian representation and overnight delivery. All electrical components comply with the relavent Australian Standards.
Vertex Hydropore’s objective is to develop membrane and other low chemical water technology in Australia and through a network of skilled distributors that are focused on providing solutions to our customers’ water quality problems.
