How to desalinate salt water

One way of desalination is distillation, or distillation. Pour salt water into the pan and put it on the heat. Condensate will be collected on the lid of the pan. However, it is difficult to obtain a large amount of fresh water in this way, because when removing the lid, most of the drops flow back into the pan.

It is possible to improve this desalination plant. Drill the hole in the cover and insert the tube in the form of a snakehead from the moonshine machine. Lower the other end of the tube into an empty vessel. To cool the tube, cover with a damp cloth or splash with cool water. Steam from a heated saucepan, entering a chilled snake, condenses and turns into drops of water. Drops will drain into an empty vessel. Thus, there will be salt left in the heated pan after evaporation, and distilled water will be collected in the other.

In hiking conditions, a metal sheet can be placed under a small tilt above the salt water boiler so that steam is collected on its inner surface, and condensate flowed into an empty container. Fire breed small, otherwise there will be great loss of steam. The

water obtained by distillation does not quench the thirst well because it does not contain any salts at all. A very small amount of salt water can be added to it to improve quality.

Another way of desalination is popular among Eskimos. When cooled, fresh water freezes faster than salty. Thus, you can put a salt water tank on the frost and wait for ice crystallines to form in it. Collect that ice and melt — you get enough fresh water.

Rice soaks salt when cooked. If enough of this cereal is boiled in salt water, a drinkable rice decoction can be obtained. Of course, it won’t be clean water, but you can quench their thirst.
