What is Reverse Osmosis?
Reverse Osmosis (commonly referred as RO) is the process of deionizing or demineralizing water by passing it through a semi-permeable membrane. Before understanding the effectiveness and need of Reverse Osmosis process, let’s understand the process of Osmosis first. When the weaker saline solution migrates to a strong saline solution, it is called Osmosis. It is a commonly occurring phenomenon in nature with a variety of uses and applications. Our kidneys absorb water from the blood or plant roots absorb water from the soil are some examples.
Reverse Osmosis is the process in a reverse manner. Whereas the Osmosis process occurs naturally without any need for energy, you need to apply energy to perform Reverse Osmosis. The membrane used in this case allows the water molecules to pass but stops the majority of the salts and impurities dissolved in the water. Typically, it stops organic material, salts, pyrogens, and bacteria. Since it is against natural process, you need to put a lot of energy for pushing the water through the RO membrane. It desalinates the water, lets the pure water pass through the membrane, and holds back the majority of contaminants.
Statistics says that up to 95 to 99 percent of dissolved salts get removed in the process. The more salt concentration is there in the input water stream; higher is the pressure required to pass it through the membrane.
What is the role of RO Membrane?
When the water molecules pass through the membrane under very high pressure, they pass through it, and salts or contaminants hold back. They get discharged through the system by the reject stream. Rejected water may be drained out or sent to the feed water supply, depending on the design.
RO systems use Cross Filtration and not the standard filtration where the contaminants get accumulated in the filter media. In this case, the solution passes through the filter in two different ways. Contaminated water goes in one direction and the filtered water in other. Cross flow filtration cleans the contaminant build up so that the membrane surface remains clean.
Effectiveness of RO System
We being the reverse osmosis plant manufacturers and suppliers pride ourselves to be considered as one of the best in town.
- It can remove up to 99% organics, particles, ions, pyrogens, and bacteria. However, it doesn’t claim 100% removal of bacteria and viruses.
- Contaminants are rejected based on their molecular weight and size. Typically, particles of molecular weight more than 200 get rejected by a well-maintained RO system. To give an example
- It also identifies contaminants based on the ionic charge. Molecules with a high ionic charge will not pass through the membrane. Gases such as CO2 don’t have highly charged atoms, and their molecular weight is also low. Hence, they pass through the membrane. It is the reason; RO water has higher pH value.
Reverse Osmosis is a multipurpose, versatile method of purifying water. It can treat surface and ground water very effectively. It can treat brackish water also. RO is ideal for both large and small flow applications.
such as boiler feed, pharmaceutical, semiconductor manufacturing, metal finishing food and beverage widely use RO water. They have requirement of huge RO treatment plants that Cleantech is capable of providing. Our experts work with the clients to understand their needs. We suggest the best solution.
A few parameters determine the efficiency and usability of RO systems. The quality of water, flow, and pressure are some important aspects. Also, hours of operations, the temperature of water, feed pressure, permeate pressure, and concentrate pressure are also important. Feed and permeate conductivity, feed and permeate flow, and salt rejection percentage are some other parameters.
Due to excellent performance and quality of the output water, good quality Reverse Osmosis Plants is in high demand. We have the complete range of choices to the customers spread across industries.
