Beautiful Complete Littoral Combat Ship Prototype Test Of Reverse Osmosis Seawater Desalination System

Original title: the complete littoral combat ship prototype test of reverse osmosis seawater desalination system

Beijing, March 4, according to China's National Defense Science and technology information network reports, in February, the United States naval facilities engineering and Expeditionary Center (NAVFAC EXWC) complete the littoral combat ship prototype test reverse osmosis seawater desalination system.

Littoral combat ship Program Office (PMS501) will be funded by the Office of Naval Research to continue research and development of new RO unit, uses the pretreatment system of media filters and canister filters, Nissan 4000 gallons of fresh water. Littoral combat ship desalination system using cartridge filter, easy scaling in offshore waters, Nissan 2000 gallons of fresh water only.

Expeditionary Center provides seawater reverse osmosis desalination systems design specification, and water quality, medium filtration reverse osmosis units for maintenance and energy consumption test. Test results showed that the system could significantly increase the production of drinking water, effectively removes the impurities of the coastal waters, reduced maintenance and lower energy consumption, apply to offshore operations.

Expeditionary warfare Center, which includes sea systems command, Naval Research Department cadi Locke, Surface Warfare Center Division, army tank automation research, development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) and United States representatives of the Bureau of reclamation, the seawater desalination test system is the Office of Naval Research's future naval capabilities (FNC) test equipment for advanced shipboard desalination projects.

Expeditionary Center is expected to be delivered in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 new seawater desalination by reverse osmosis units, and an additional 30 days of sea trials, will culminate in a 6-month trial was conducted on the littoral combat ship. (China ship information center Chen)
