Handheld Desalination Device

Quench Sea

Quench Sea is a new handheld desalination device that runs on manual human power. It combines a hydraulic system, triple prefiltration and a small reverse osmosis membrane that turns seawater into clean drinking water, producing 3 liters every hour, using a pumping action.  Suitable for boaters, sailors and any marine application, Quench Sea is a useful survival device for communities

Chess + Evans Deepwater Desalination Concept Patented

Chess and Evans desalination

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has accepted a new method of deep-ocean, mobile desalination by Bob Evans and Susanne Chess that could revolutionize the production of freshwater. Significant energy savings are predicted as deep-ocean pressure does much of the work required to force saltwater through reverse osmosis filters. The process is natural. By operating below 900 ft., where
