Who is SaltFree Desalination


To categorise "DOMESTIC Desalination" we would normally associate a customer under this title as being a client requiring anywhere from 12,000-30,000 litres per day to sustain their daily usage levels.

For anyone falling under this category we would normally recommend for them either our smaller manual or fully automatic units, which are both capable of taking up to 12 membranes.

The most common remark we receive from our first enquiries is that "We only require 3,000 litres per day, and that will be heaps".

As a rule once they hear that our smallest unit will produce for them, upwards of 12,000 litres per day as a minimum, (should they run the unit for a 24 hour period), they panic.

But all that simply happens is, that they find they only need to run their unit for say 8 or 10 hours a day, or even maybe every second day. Should they have a computerised unit, they will find then that their unit will should only run when their storage tank is low.

Model M3HP3M

Model AU4HP10M



When categorising "COMMERCIAL" Desalination, we would normally associate this category with a customer requiring say 30,000-100,000 litres per day over a 24 hour period.

So for this application we would recommend for them a Model AU5HP16M unit.

Businesses such as nursery's, car washes, truck washes, lawn bowls clubs, small vineyards or even some of your smaller golf clubs.



To Categorise "INDUSTRIAL" Desalination, we would normally associate a customer under this category as being a client requiring anywhere from 100,000 to 500,000 + literage per day over a 24 hour period.

This sort of daily volume is obviously quite a serious demand and therefore the units required for these customers would be purposefully designed and built with  their own specifications required.

Applications for this type of Model AU8HP24M unit, would be for companies such as large "Golf Coarses, Chicken Farms, Piggeries, any sort of industry where high volume as well as high quality water is required.

Larger Applications see Model AU15HP36M and AU30HP72M.


Why SaltFree?

We are Saltfree Desalination, a company second to none for service and a prompt reply.

Reverse osmosis desalination unit's capable of producing anywhere from 14,000-500,000 litres per day over a 24 hour period depending on your water quality.

We aim to always respond to any customers enquiries within a 24 hour period, as long as you are able to initially give us a general idea as to what your salinity levels are, where your property is based a

nd also what daily consumption of water you are after. We are then normally able to give you a general idea as to what costing you will be looking at, based purely on your salinity levels.

A more accurate answer taking into account all other elements in your water is able to be given once a more thorough water test is taken.

Our units are designed for treating brackish bore water up to 10,000 ppm. For the treatment of sea water quaulity, we now have sea treatment systems. Our units are built and designed in Victoria, they contain the latest in digital technology, and we only use the very best of quality parts where required. To place this in more laymen's terms, sea water's salinity level is 32,000 ppm. We are able to treat up to 10,000 ppm and drinking water is normally around the 120 ppm mark.

We have domestic units suitable for customers who only require production requirements for only say 14,000-50,000 litres per day. Our latest model has been specifically designed for customers who are after a daily production of around 30,000-90,000 litres per day, and then finally we are also able to offer customers an industrial sized unit catering for property's which are after literage upwards to 500,000 per day depending on your water quality.

What does SaltFree do?

SaltFree specifies, designs, manufactures and installs Desalination Units across Australia for the removal of salt's from artesian (bore) water, providing palatable water resources for domestic and commercial use.

A SaltFree desalinator is an affordable investment in having a relaible and sustainable water supply, custom built for your enviroment. Ask us how we can make one work for you.



What is it? 

Salinity is the saltiness or dissolved salt content of a body of water. It is a general term used to describe the levels of different salts such as sodium chloride, magnesium and calcium sulfates and bicarbonates.

Salinity in Australian English and North American English may also refer to the salt content of soil (soil salination).




What is it?

Desalination refers to any of several processes that removes excess salt and other minerals from the water. There are many instances where desalination can be applied, in particularground water and/or bores.

Reverse Osmosis systems can be adjusted to address what minerals and/or salts are present in your feedwater. In most cases this is measured by Total Dissolved Solids or TDS. The level of T.D.S will dictate the type of treatment together with what other minerals or impurities you need removed.


Bore Water


What is it?

Bore water is ground water which accumulates in aquifers from seepage of rain and rivers through layers of soil and rock. A water bore is a way of gaining access to these groundwater sources.

An aquifer is formed through layers of sand or fractured rock in which the pore spaces or fractures are filled with water. These formations store and transmit ground water which can be accessed by using a water pump.

Some bore water contains chemical and microbiological hazards that are potentially harmful to health. These hazards may occur naturally or be due to contamination.


Reverse Osmosis


What is it?

Reverse osmosis is a filtration process that is often used for water. It works by using feedwater pressure to force feedwater through a membrane, retaining the unwanted particles on one side and allowing the pure water to pass to the other side.

This is the reverse of the normal osmosis process, which is the natural movement of solvent from an area of low solute concentration, through a membrane, to an area of high solute concentration when no external pressure is applied.
