In this paper, we discuss the modeling of the electromagnetic water purification. This model requires a velocity distribution in a study domain. For that purpose, the double potential method for simulating incompressible viscous fluid flows was used. The system of equations was discretized with the help of the finite volume method using an exponential transformation for the vortex calculation. As a result, a software implementation of the developed numerical scheme was obtained. The simulation of the three-dimensional flow was carried out in a study domain. The results were compared with Ansys CFD. The comparison showed a good degree of consistency between the two distributions. Using the obtained velocity field, we simulated the process of water purification using the induction of the electromagnetic field.
