Reverse Osmosis (RO) Filtration Systems

The Reverse Osmosis unit is a fully automated plant, designed to reduce the total dissolved solids level in the incoming water. The Reverse Osmosis unit consists of a frame and shroud, FRP membrane housing, multistage centrifugal pump, inlet cartridge filter, flow indicators, pressure gauges, conductivity meter, inlet, permeate and concentrate pipe work.

Reverse Osmosis uses a membrane process to remove ionic and organic solids from water, by separating the feed water into two streams.  A semi-permeable membrane allows passage of purified water while rejecting and concentrating dissolved solids.  The membrane collects the purified water within a permeate tube before passing the treated water to service.

The RO unit carries out this process by utilizing low-pressure spiral wound membranes, which offer salt rejection up to 98% and will also remove up to 99% of bacteria, viruses, pyrogens and organic matter.
