High volume reverse osmosis systems for industrial grade applications.
Our industrial reverse osmosis systems incorporate the latest in RO technology to remove solids, particles, dissolved minerals, organics, and other particles from water. RO uses reverse osmosis membranes as its core separation technology to reject these contaminants. The result is high quality water.
What We Provide
We provide custom industrial reverse osmosis systems that integrate with your current water treatment solutions or are a part of an entirely new water treatment system. Typical uses are ultra-fine filtration of water for DI water pretreatment, pharmaceutical processes, food and beverage processing, process water, boiler pretreatment, biotech, laboratory, medical and more. Our reverse osmosis experts can answer any questions or concerns you have.
24,000 GPD to 500,000 GPD Industrial Grade RO Systems
We have many different sizes of reverse osmosis systems for a variety of applications. Customized systems for your specific water treatment system or solution can also be built. The systems can be single pass, two pass, custom skid units, portable RO systems, and more.
How industrial reverse osmosis works.
The RO system’s semi-permeable membrane acts as a molecular filter to remove up to 99% of all dissolved solids. The semi-permeable membrane allows water molecules to pass through while blocking other salt molecules. So as pressure is applied to the concentrated solution, water is forced through the membrane from the concentrated side to the dilute side. The dissolved and particular materials are left behind.
Water molecules penetrate the thin layer of the membrane and diffuse through it molecule by molecule. Dissolved salt ions do not diffuse through this layer because the solubility of the salt ions is much less than that of the water. Thus, the water moves through more readily and separation from the other molecules present occurs. The driving force is furnished by both the pressure and the concentration of differentials across the membrane. For water, the pressure effect is the most important, and for dissolved minerals the concentration difference is most important. Therefore, increases in pressure increase the product water flow without a corresponding decrease in the quality of the product water. This process removes up to 99% of most dissolved mineral salts, virtually all of the particulate matter, and many dissolved organic compounds.
The semi-permeable membrane must be made of a highly durable material since it must withstand pressure higher than the pressure differential between the concentrated side and the diluted side of the membrane which can be very high ? as in the case of seawater, where it is up to 350 psi (25kg/cm2).
The correct choice in pretreatment is very important as it influences the quality and quantity of the product water and above all, the life-span of the membrane. Improperly pretreated systems can experience scaling and/or fouling which will greatly reduce the capacity and life of the membrane.
