Reverse Osmosis (R/O) Systems are designed to provide the commercial and industrial user with the most trouble free, cost effective and reliable form of water treatment available, by providing every option necessary for a successful installation. RO systems utilize stainless steel pressure vessels, stainless steel frames and skids, solid state controls, integral conductivity monitors, flow controls, pressure gauges, throttling valves, high pressure relief valves, dual stage pre-filters, low suction pressure cut-off controls and recirculation loops on most models for high recovery rates and optimum performance. Reverse Osmosis Systems are engineered to function with both well and municipal water sources (with chlorine removal provided). We utilize the most current membrane technology available, and dissolved solids removal rates are typically 97% or more.
Principles of Reverse Osmosis
R/O systems employ thin film composite spiral wound membrane elements for superior performance. To simply describe the process, pump pressure is used to supply source water to reverse osmosis membranes. These special membranes allow only high quality water to permeate them. In turn, they reject metals, salts, ionic and organic impurities which are processed to waste. Suspended solids are removed by pre-filters which are standard components on all RO systems.
