WHAT IS REVERSE OSMOSIS (RO)?
Reverse osmosis is a popular topic in the water treatment industry. With the lowest energy requirements, some of the highest recovery rates, and one of the best rejection rates on the market(the desalination up to 96%-99%, that is why people are interested in learning more about it. How does it work for reverse osmosis and what is the definition for it?
Ocpurtiech will let you have a clear understanding about reverse osmosis.
Reverse Osmosis(RO) is a process that uses semi-permeable spiral wound membranes(like our skin, or the inside of a plant cell) to equalize the concentration of particles dissolved in the water.
The RO membranes allow the water pass through, and separate and remove solid, organic, progeny, sub micron colloidal matter, color nitrate and bacteria from water.
Feed water is delivered under pressure through the semi permeable membrane, where water permeates the micropores of the membrane and is delivered as purified water called permeate water. Impurities in the water are concentrated in the reject stream and flushed to the drain is called concentrate water.
