QuenchSea Desalinator


September 3, 2020

A successful crowd sourcing effort on Indiegogo claims it is “The World’s Only Low Cost Portable Seawater Desalination Device”.  We think this is a great product to keep your eye on if you are a saltwater boater.

QuenchSea is an innovative technology that combines a hydraulic system, triple pre-filtration and a small reverse osmosis membrane to desalinate seawater into freshwater using manual human power. At sea or on the coast, convert seawater into clean fresh drinking water instantly. In ideal conditions, QuenchSea can produce 3 litres of water within one hour. It is the size of a conventional iron and weighs less than a kilogram.

Hydraulic System

A unique hydraulic system builds pressure to 60 bars (6000 kPa) to remove salts from seawater through a reverse osmosis membrane.

Triple Filtration

Quench Sea has a in-built ultrafiltration and microfiltration system to remove suspended solids, pathogens, parasites, and microplastics. The first sediment filtration removes the most damaging sediments and particles. Seawater is then forced under pressure through a 0.01 micron membrane removing all containments before the final reverse osmosis process.

Activated Carbon Filter

Through the process of adsorption, an advanced activated carbon filter ensures that the taste of water is palatable and the odour of water is pleasant.

Reverse Osmosis

Quench Sea uses an advanced and state-of-the-art industrial Reverse Osmosis membrane. Seawater is demineralized under 55 bar to 60 bar (6000kPa) pressure through a semipermeable membrane. RO membranes contain small pores small enough to pass pure water through while rejecting larger molecules such as dissolved salts (ions) and other impurities such as pathogens to produce highly purified water for drinking.

Throw away the box, this is some fresh thinking

Seemingly part sailboat and part spaceship, the new Jeanneau Yachts 55 just busted through the boundaries of traditional yacht design. I couldn’t take my eyes off the bubble hardtop that met me at the dock and I stepped aboard with trepidation. A few hours later, I was planning how to spend my not-yet-won lottery winnings.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
