Block and falling film freeze concentration are two technologies that separate water by freezing,with the
potential to desalinate seawater. In this study, the
integration of two freeze concentration techniques as
an alternative to obtain potable water was analysed.
Water with 0.5%–8% NaCl was freeze-concentrated by
the falling film technique. The ice from each stage was fractionally thawed to recover the solids retained in
