SeaSpring Standard Features
The Sea Otter Series SeaSpring TM desalination systems include all basic components featured in the Dolphin and SeaLion series units, designed for applications where water requirements are less demanding.
Cartridge Sediment Filters
Two cartridge sediment filters in series are installed upstream of the membranes on every SeaSpringTM desalination systems. Both filters are designed to use 1.0 to 25 micron elements. The primary filter will use either 10 or 20 micron elements, and the secondary filter will use 5.0, 2.0, or 1.0 micron elements.
The sediment filter housings are designed to accept several different types of elements, and elements are easily changed without special tools.
High Pressure Pump
High pressure pumps for Sea Otter Series are close coupled CAT triplex plunger pumps. Standard material of construction is Naval Aluminum Bronze (NAB) with stainless steel valves.
Motor drivers for the high pressure pump are 1 HP or 1.5 HP, TEFC, 115 V AC, single phase, 60 Hz or 220 V AC, 50 Hz (specify voltage and frequency).
Reverse Osmosis Membrane
Membranes used in your SeaSpring TM desalination system are spiral wound, polyamide, thin film composite type manufactured by Hydranautics, Inc., high capacity membranes that will remove 99.2% of dissolved solids. The Sea Otter units will provide drinking water at rated flow and quality (less than 500 PPM total dissolved solids (TDS)) from seawater sources (up to 45,000 PPM salinity and seawater temperatures from 50oF (10oC) to 90oF (32oC). (Based on ASTM D1141 standard seawater analysis.)
Membrane Pressure Vessels
Pressure vessels used in the Sea Otter series are available in FRP, 316 stainless steel, and Titanium. All are designed for operation up to 1,200 PSIG (80 BAR).
The Sea Otter SeaSpring TM desalination systems come standard with manual valves and controls, of all corrosion resistant materials.
Basic operator instructions are permanently
printed on the control console.
Optional automatic controls include the following:
Piping and Connections
