REVERSE OSMOSIS

What is Osmosis

Osmosis is a special case of passive transport. In Osmosis, water diffuses from a low concentration solution to a high concentration solution. If you have two containers of liguid one having a high concentration of dissolved solids and the other with a low concentration, the lower concentrated liquid will flow to the container with the higher concentration. REVERSE OSMOSIS is when pressure is applied to the higher concentration to force the liguid into the lower concentration.  In the water situation the water passes through a thin film membrane to remove the solids so that low concentrated (clean) water is put in the container.

Reverse Osmosis (RO)

Reverse Osmosis is a function of temperature, pressure and dissolved solids.  In order for the water to pass through the membrane it requires greater pressure on the high side.  Warmer water helps to reduce the back pressure while high dissolved solids increases the back pressure.  Therefore in order to get maximum production all three factors must be taken into consideration.  Over the years membranes have increased in there production capacity.  Two types of membranes are generally used due to the aggresiveness of chlorine.  CTA membranes are used with high levels of chlorine but are not as productive as TFC membranes.  TFC membranes are sometimes used on less cholorinated water with a carbon filter to remove the aggressive chlorine prior to the membrane.  Chlorine will actually destroy a TFC membrane but the TFC membrane will give greater production/rejection.

How clean is Reverse Osmosis Water?

Reverse Osmosis removes Inorganic compounds such as Arsenic, Nitrates, Lead, Barium, Asbestos, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, Cyanide, Flouride, Mercury, Selenium, Thallium and Sodium.  Removal of the Inorganics improves the water, but you also need to address the Organics, Volatile Organics, Microorganisms and Bacteria. These contaminants can be removed using Carbon, Peroxide, Chlorine, Ultraviolet, Ozonation and Micro Filtration.  The use of Reverse Osmosis is only one part of the purification process and by itself doesn't complete the job.

Why use Reverse Osmosis?

 Reverse Osmosis will remove 60 - 98% of the Inorganics depending on the contaminant.  By testing the water you can determine what if any additional filteration you would require to obtain the type of water you need.  Reverse Osmosis generally is economical, more productive and takes less to maintain than Deionization or Distillation. It has become the most accepted method for home use.
