Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis Plant

Reverse osmosis, also known as hyper-filtration, is the finest filtration known. This process will allow the removal of particles as small as dissolved individual ions from a solution. Reverse osmosis is used to purify water and remove ions and dissolved organic molecules. It can be used to purify fluids such as the wastewater, which will pass through the reverse osmosis membrane, while rejecting other ions and contaminants from passing. The typical use for reverse osmosis is in purifying water. It is used to produce water that meets the most demanding specifications that are currently in place and set out by the EPA.

Reverse osmosis will reject bacteria, salts, sugars, proteins, particles, dyes, and other constituents that have a molecular weight of greater than 150-250 Daltons. The separation of ions with reverse osmosis is aided by charged particles. This means that dissolved ions which carry a charge, such as salts, are more likely to be rejected by the membrane than those which are not charged, such as organics.

The product is designed to meet requirements for the following deployment scenarios and industry solutions:

  • Volumes between 1m3/hr up to 10,000m3/hr are feasible with appropriate sizing of single skid multiple units.
  • Suited for all types of Water Purification
  • Boiler Water feed
  • Industrial Processing
  • Water Recycling
  • Other applications in conjunction with biological treatment and UF (Ultrafiltration) include Surface Water, Dairy, Food, Brewing and Public Water Utilities.
