Isn't reversosmosis just forcing water through the semipermeable membrane against osmotic pressure?

@The Goldey Family I doubt it, China and Russia save their money. They spend their taxes on benefiting their citizens, rather than the military. They manufacture everything the Americans purchase everyday.

Clinker : is from Dutch, and was originally used in English to describe Clinker bricks .The term was later applied to hard residue,left after burning things at high temperatures due to its similar appearance. Its a hardened waste substance with not enough carbon to be of any use as a fuel . it was sometimes used for pavement. So their spent candles might make handy garden edging 😉 . thats my unsolicited 2cents 😶

Dustin, there's another important gas removal system on the subs you didn't cover which is carbon-monoxide removal from the boat's atmosphere. Also, we always described the amine smell as a very strong fish smell.

The preheater to the boiler stripper is nothing more than heat integration. Some waste heat from somewhere else on the ship is, I'm presuming, captured via a fluid and transferred there as a means to reduce the heating requirements of the boiler. Similar techniques are used in plants to offset utility costs. Here, probably done for safety reasons.

I've seen an attempt to use this same technology to harvest hydrogen from water then inject it into the induction system of petrol/diesel engines which supposedly resulted in lower emissions and an increase in fuel economy however it's unclear if the end result was worth investing in as the gains were relatively small and therefore required that one do a lot of mileage for it to pay for itself. I believe the company was called 'CGON systems' and they were based in SW of England.

The only reference I could think of in respect to "Clinker" is how when a patient uses a bed pan and makes a solid bowel movement they call it a "Clinker" due to the sides of a stainless bed pan. Honestly they kind of look like a form of excrement.

So "klinker" is a blacksmithing and heating term for the glassy slag left over while burning coal, it's a hard slag inclusion independent from the ash that needs to be broken and cleared to prevent it from blocking teh airflow. Most coal burning devices have a "klinker breaker" to, obviously, break the klinker into pieces so it can fall through the grate.
