Desalination Plants for Land Based Installations

Specific Equipment Company began building customized fluid handling packages for the offshore petroleum industry in 1967. SPECIFIC started building reverse osmosis watermakers for hotels and resorts in 1988. Since then our customer base has expanded to include the Caribbean, Bahamas, and Mexico.


A high standard of engineering and manufacturing quality as well as the selection of top of the line components characterizes the systems that SPECIFIC has shipped to the field. Please take a look at the standard SPECIFIC water purification system setout below and let us quote the next time an opportunity arises.




Our standard seawater Reverse Osmosis systems for hotels, municipalities and other land base installations are fully self-contained with production capacities from 26,000 to 400,000 GPD. Multiple systems can be installed in parallel utilizing common cleaning and flush systems. Optional energy recovery devices can recover over 85% of the energy available in the reject stream.
