This article describes the console plant for desalination of saline water, which uses a quasi-adiabatic process with difference of the water temperature lower than 5 °C. That provides ecological safety when the seawater is used as a source of saline water. The main element of the installation is a patented heat mass transfer device with a huge surface area of contact. Only a small portion of saline water flows through device, which can be pre bactericidal treated, such as of quartz. In this case, the cold of the desalination plant can be utilized that allows using this cooled and dehumidified air for air conditioning. The article presents a thermodynamic diagram processing air and block diagram of this desalination plant, and an analysis of similar devices for desalination.
