Pure, clean water is the needed around the world, and is often used in commercial industries. From greenhouses to hospitals, from food processing to the military- water without contaminants is essential for life. When filtering water reverse osmosis is a very effective cleaning process. Using commercial reverse osmosis or RO water filtration systems can supply you with the clean water you need.
Reverse osmosis removes contaminating molecules from the water and gives you crystal clear water for commercial applications. Modern commercial reverse osmosis water systems, equipped with carbon filters, water softeners, a storage tank, and more, give us purified water without dissolved solids or heavy metals in them. The carbon filters are also good at removing strong odours from water.
Let's find out more about commercial reverse osmosis systems and the water purification process used by them!
Growing Popularity of Commercial Reverse Osmosis Systems
RO-based water treatment equipment supplied by WATTS provides economical solutions to breweries, healthcare industry, food production companies, ice makers, water treatment plants, military and first responders, pharmacy companies, water supplies, bottled water stores, etc. Commercial RO systems can work well for a wide variety of large industrial processes.
This also means that the reverse osmosis water filters used for each application will be different models and sizes. There is a wide range of filtration products that use the reverse osmosis to give you the product tailored to suit your processing needs. Give us a call to invest some time in understanding the product application and consult experts to get the right reverse osmosis filtration system that is going to work for you. Mainly you want to ensure that the new RO system can handle your water flow rates, and keep up with the demand of filtration as water flows through the system.
Quality commercial RO systems offer multiple benefits. They are environment-friendly, cost-effective, and low-maintenance. Above all, they offer healthy, safe, filtered water. The reverse osmosis process used by these filtration systems removes impurities with the help of a semi-permeable membrane. In the process, it also rejects bacteria. There's a wide variety of commercial applications for these types of systems.
How Reverse Osmosis Works in Water Purification
Reverse osmosis is not new. There are centuries of studies and research work going into developing systems for water purification. In the last half a century, RO systems have become more advanced. But what exactly is reverse osmosis? Before we find out about that, let's first learn about osmosis.
If you place two liquids of different solute concentrations are separated by a membrane that allows the molecules to pass through, the liquid will move from low concentration level to high concentration. This will help the two liquids to achieve a state of equilibrium. Let's take a look at a simple example.
Suppose you take two cups. Fill one of them with plain water and the other with sugar-infused water. Between these two, the concentration of solute is higher in the sugar water. Imagine that we take a U-tube, and there's a breathable waterproof fabric like Gore-Tex right in between the U-tube to separate the tube into two halves.
Now, if we pour the plain water into the U-tube on one side of the membrane and the sugar water solution on the other, water molecules will start to flow through the tiny holes in the membrane from the plain water to the sugar solution. This is how osmosis will work, and the movement will continue till both solutions mix completely. One polluting the other.
In reverse osmosis, the process is reversed, i.e., the solvent moves in the opposite direction compared to osmosis. So, if we take the same sugar solution and the regular water, reverse osmosis would cause water to move from the sugar solution to plain water! It helps to separate the solute and the solvent - water and sugar in the case of this example.
Commercial Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Process
Reverse osmosis purifiers, equipped with a pressure pump, force water against a semi-permeable membrane surface. This causes the water molecules to pass through the small pores, away from solids, salts, minerals, and other harmful impurities.
These systems usually have pressure gauges along with the booster pump to help you understand how much pressure is being applied to boost the flow rates and enhance the process of purification to give you high-quality water. A RO water filter is one of the most trusted systems in any industry now.
Stages of RO Systems
The RO membrane is an essential tool in the reverse osmosis system. The amount of water permeating through the membrane depends on several factors like feed water pressure, water temperature, etc. An RO water filter can work at different stages of filtration.
RO filters usually have carbon block filters, along with the semi-permeable membrane. Depending on when the water passes through them, they are call pre - filters or post - filters. Based on the type of system, filters include:
- Sediment filter to reduce dirt or rust particles
- Carbon filter to reduce volatile organic compounds, chlorine, and causes of poor taste or odour
- Semi-permeable membrane to remove the majority of dissolved solids
- When water enters an RO water purifier, it enters the stage of pre - filter membrane. For that, carbon filters and sediment filters come into play, removing sediments, chlorine, etc.
- Then, water passes through the RO membrane so that even the smallest dissolved solids get removed from the water.
- After that, water passes into the storage tank. The system continues to work until the filter is filled.
- RO systems may even have softeners to give you soft water.
- When water from the filter is allowed to flow, it leaves the storage tank passing through the post - filter membrane to give you the finest water.
