Portable Desalination Units
Turning Salt Water Into The Best Potable Water

1. There are 1,400 million cubic kilometers of water on earth. However, sea water is the vast majority. Fresh water is only 2.5%, and most of it in the form of glaciers, ice, snow, ice in frozen soil, or hard to reach groundwater.


2. Since 1957 SANSO Electric Co. Ltd. has been manufacturing small size, energy efficient, lightweight motors and pumps for a variety of applications.


3. In 2016 SANSO successfully transformed polluted sea water into potable water. Such potable water meets or exceeds Japan's Drinking  Water Standard 

(51 items), thanks to an unique desalination technology.


The machine is small size, light weight, and energy saving. Furthermore, it is easy to operate, ideal for treating water on an island, yacht, ship.


We can manufacture according to specific customer requirements.
