Reverse Osmosis

What is Reverse Osmosis Purificcation & Filtration :

Reverse Osmosis helps lower the TDS content of water (such as brackish water, or sea water) since substances such as dissolved & suspended calcium, magnesium and sodium can not readily pass through the seem-permeable membrane, while water can.

Reverse Osmosis Membrane Filtration

The pores in the membrane are about .0001 microns. To give you some perspective, the smallest bacteria is 0.02 micron Water passes through the membrane while the dissolved and particulate materials are left behind. As pressure is applied to the concentrated solution, the flow is reversed and water is forced through the membrane from the concentrated side to the dilute side. The central part of the RO system is the module, which is a pressurized container housing the semi-permeable membrane.

Industrial Reverse Osmosis & Water Purification

Reverse Osmosis Systems Remove up to 99% of Total Dissolved Solids.
Reverse Osmosis is a membrane separation process in which feed water flows along the membrane surface under pressure. Purified water permeates the membrane and is collected, while the concentrated water, containing dissolved and un-dissolved material that does not flow through the membrane, is discharged to the drain. Reverse osmosis systems remove salts, microorganisms and many high molecular weight organics. System capacity depends on the water temperature, total dissolved solids in feed water, operating pressure and the overall recovery of the system.
