Iranian Researcher Designs New Machine Able to Make Salty Water Drinkable

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 - 16:50

Researcher from Amirkabir University of Technology have designed a new seawater desalination machine which can purify water using water membranes.

According to an ISCA report, Solmaz Valizadeh stated that every Iranian citizen will reach less than 1,400 cubic meters by 2021, indicating the fact that Iran is going to face a water crisis.

As she said, due to the geographic location of Iran and its easy access to seas such as the Sea of Oman, seawater sweetening is one of the most effective solutions for solving water shortages problem in the country that should be a top priority.

In this regard, her team at Amirkabir University of Technology have designed a new seawater desalination machine that is also capable of separating heavy metals from industrial waste water.

The machine can be used in research centers, for example at textile industry, which are working on water purification to eliminate water pollution.

She said that their device is different from other types of seawater desalination machines produced inside the country, stressing that other domestically-produced devices are not completely made of stainless steel and polymer is partly used in their bodies, while their device is made entirely of stainless steel.

The head of the team of the Amirkabir university researchers added that polymer reduces the machine's pressure tolerance.
