Tom Quaye, head of BAE's Type 45 Class Output Management Team said, "The Type 45 is the largest and most powerful Air Defence Destroyer ever built for the Royal Navy. It is a versatile platform capable of contributing to worldwide maritime and joint operations in multi threat environments. It is essential that these ships can produce fresh water wherever they are operating; we were very pleased with the performance of Pall's IMS for delivering fresh water supplies during the ship's deployment."
"In addition to implementation with UK's Royal Navy ships, the IMS has operated successfully at many other military, commercial, and disaster relief sites around the world," commented Vince Northfield, president of Pall Aerospace.
The IMS freshwater generator integrates hollow fiber microfiltration (MF) and reverse osmosis (RO) modules. It removes suspended solids, e.g., bacteria and viruses, dissolved components (such as salts), and other contaminants from sea water. The system significantly reduces the requirement to store spare filter cartridges and can be used to boost water production on a permanent or temporary basis.
