Autonomous Desalination Units
ORYX is a stand-alone system for solar water desalination. Thermal energy for membrane distillation is provided by solar thermal collectors and solar PV power the pumps and control systems. Each unit is designed to operate autonomously, starting and stopping automatically when there is sufficient sunlight.
ORYX is robust, has low-fouling tendency and can be used with seawater or brackish wells. No pre-treatment chemicals, no backflushing and low maintenance make ORYX ideal for drinking water supply in remote areas.
