An Introduction to Distillation and Condensation Techniques for Water Desalination

COURSE NO: H02-003
An Introduction to Distillation and Condensation Techniques for Water Desalination
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will introduce you to techniques for water desalination using distillation and condensation technology.  You will learn how to select an appropriate site for a desalination plant, how to evaluate water sources, principles of process selection, and the basic technology of water desalination using distillation and condensation processes.


This 2 PDH online course is intended for civil engineers, environmental engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to distillation and condensation techniques for water desalination. After completion of this course you will be prepared for advanced learning about distillation and condensation systems for water desalination, which in turn will prepare you for desalination project planning and design.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning about water storage and system modularization requirements
  • Learning how to select a water source
  • Learning how to evaluate the physical and chemical characteristics of the water source
  • Learning about the typical desalination process flow
  • Learning how to make the preliminary desalination process selection
  • Learning about distillation and condensation techniques
  • Learning about the multiple-effect vertical-tube evaporation process
  • Learning about multistage flash distillation facilities
  • Learning about the waste heat recovery evaporation process
