Pentair Ltd. is working with customers around the globe to address the growing need for clean water in water-scarce regions. Pentair was recently awarded projects to supply equipment and expertise at desalination facilities--converting sea water to fresh water--in Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Oman and India, helping to generate more than 500 million liters of clean water daily.
One such example of a customer challenge is a large city on the coast of India, which relied on water tankers to supply municipal water directly to residents. Pentair is providing equipment and expertise from both its Valves & Controls and Filtration & Process businesses for the planned desalination plant, which will supply fresh water to the city's five million residents.
Pentair products and technologies used across the projects include its X-Flow ultrafiltration membranes, CodeLine membrane housings, Vanessa and Keystone valves and Biffi and Alpha-Max actuators.
