Saltwater electrical conductivity is one of the essential physical properties in the desalination and water treatment industries, especially for electrically driven technologies such as electrodialysis. Saline water with higher salinity is considered a better conductor than pure water. This chapter discusses the multicomponent models that estimate the saline water electrical conductivity at different salinity and temperature values. Experimental data of seawater electrical conductivity are used to compare the estimated electrical conductivity values from the methods and assess their accuracy. Some methods are recommended based on their accuracy and operating conditions. Besides, the codes of methods used to calculate the electrical conductivity are provided.
