For both water coming into an industrial plant or facility, or for wastewater leaving a process, having an effective way to remove contaminants is critical. One of the most effective options for industrial applications with low to high water purification volume requirements is the use of a reverse osmosis system.
Reverse osmosis or RO uses pressure to push pure water through a semi-permeable membrane. The contaminants are trapped on the outside of the membrane and are drained away for disposal while the pure water flows through the system.
Different types of membranes and various permeability factors are used to customize the filtration provided by the reverse osmosis system. Top systems can remove up to 99.9% of dissolved salts, bacteria, and any organic materials in the water.
The higher the demand for pure water or wastewater purification, the more critical scalability will be for the RO system. Look for companies that customize the system to meet your requirements rather than offer a one-size-fits-all reverse osmosis system for all applications.
Investing in any type of technology starts with learning as much as possible about the manufacturer and the reputation of their RO systems. Ideally, working with a US-based company offers a clear picture of both the systems the company designs, manufacturers, and installs, as well as a good understanding of their customer service and support.
Other considerations include the cost of operation, the repairs and maintenance required on the system, and the size of the system with regards to the physical space available in the facility.
