Membrane technology has been present in water filtration and purification for many decades. The process involves pressurizing a feed stream into a series of membranes in order to remove contaminants. The result is a dilute, or permeate, stream that is of superior quality in order to apply to the downstream process. Reverse Osmosis is considered to be the tightest membrane offered and will remove contaminants down to the metal ion.
With current technology, RO membranes are offered in a variety of pore sizes which have a direct effect on the feed pressure required to drive the water across the membrane. In many occasions, low pressure RO membranes will reject the right amount of contaminants at lower pressures and potentially less pretreatment.
RO systems are relatively easy to operate, can be operated remotely, and allow end users to tie into existing controls for complete integration.
