It is amazing to imagine that seawater can be converted to freshwater anywhere. The QuenchSea is a portable, handheld, and cost-efficient device that turns seawater into freshwater using only physical power. This portable seawater desalination device was invented by an extraordinary team gathered from all around the world.
The idea is to combine the hydraulic system and reverse osmosis membrane to turn seawater into drinkable fresh water. But the key feature is, all the above processes will happen with the help of manual power. However, this compact device is ideal for sailors, campers, travelers, survival situations, and also for humanitarian relief.
Low-cost & practical seawater desalination device
The Quench Sea is specifically designed to turning seawater into freshwater only. Most importantly, the device can desalinate up to 3 liters of seawater per hour. However, the QuenchSea features a unique hydraulic system that builds 6,000 KPa of pressure and an ultrafiltration & microfiltration system to remove solids, bacteria, and viruses from the seawater.
Also, it has an activated carbon filter to keep the water tasty. Furtherly, the water loses it’s larger molecules such as salt, bacteria, and other impurities once it passes through the industrial reverse osmosis membrane with the pressure of 60 bar. Likewise, the 60 bar pressure was generated by human power.
All you have to do is, simply move the sophisticated hand-operated lever front and back to begin the desalination process. Moreover, this device weighs only 600 grams. So it will fit in your backpack for the next outdoor adventure. As of now, the QuenchSea is on an Indiegogo campaign. They have planned to retail the device for $70. Do you like it, then you can get one for the early pledge of $59 on Indiegogo, com!
