The Sea Water Desalination, by thermal evaporation process, is usually recommended whenever a heavy duty desalination unit is requested for industrial use.
The thermal evaporation units can be arranged according to the following process families; each of these realizes a vacuum evaporation of the sea water, either by flash or by surface heat transfer, and involves an energy input which is given by LP steam. The MVC process only doesn’t require for steam but electric power.
