What is Reverse Osmosis?
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a water filtration process using membrane technology. It removes almost 99% of impurities like salts, ions, and other microns dissolved in waste water.
Natural osmosis is a process where water flows from lower solute concentration to higher solute concentration, through a semipermeable membrane. This develops osmotic pressure, which stops water from flowing through the membrane after achieving a balance.
For water purification, the reverse osmosis process is adopted by applying external pressure that exceeds osmotic pressure. This reverses the water flow and it flows from higher concentration to lower concentration, through a synthetic semipermeable membrane.
The membrane does not allow impurities, inorganic solids, nor particles larger than .001 microns to pass through it. The treated water is called the permeate stream.
Depending on the quality of the filter and the membrane, all contaminants including bacteria, viruses, parasites, heavy metals, inorganic chemicals, pesticides, and algae are removed. These impurities and contaminants, called the reject stream, are later flushed down the drain.
Our reverse osmosis systems are equipped with membranes of the best quality for high durability and low fouling potential. We offer the following types of RO plants, depending on the degree of inlet feed water TDS:
- Tap water RO (TWRO).
- Brackish water RO (BWRO).
- Sea water RO (SWRO).
We also offer the following chemicals for RO:
- Antiscalants (to avoid mineral scaling and extend the membrane’s performance).
- RO membrane cleaners (to handle scaling and bio fouling).
Emvees offers the most economical option while delivering the promise of environmental safety and optimum operation during the installation of RO plants. Our clients will also receive periodic after-sales services to ensure that the system is operating at peak performance.
