RO-WaterSystems is an engineering company dedicated to the design, development and construction of water purification systems and equipment, using Reverse Osmosis technology.
We carry standard equipment applicable to majority of the above applications and the capacity to design and build custom systems according to the client's requirements.
Each sector has different needs according to the flow capacity, the cost of energy, the quality and cost of the source water and the quality of the purified water.
We provide custom water treatment systems for a wide range of industries such as:
Reverse Osmosis works by using a high pressure pump to increase the pressure on the polluted water side of the RO and force the water across the semi-permeable RO membrane, leaving almost all of dissolved salts behind in the reject stream (Drain). The amount of pressure required depends on the salt concentration of the feed water. The more concentrated the feed water, the more pressure is required to overcome the osmotic pressure.
The desalinated water that is demineralized or deionized, is called permeate (or product) water. The drain stream that carries the concentrated contaminants that did not pass through the RO membrane is called the reject (or concentrate) stream.
As the feed water enters the RO membrane under pressure (enough pressure to overcome osmotic pressure) the water molecules pass through the semi-permeable membrane and the salts and other contaminants are not allowed to pass and are discharged through the reject stream (also known as the concentrate), which goes to drain or can be fed back into the feed water supply in some circumstances to be recycled through the RO system to save water. The water that makes it through the RO membrane is called permeate or product water and usually has around 95% to 99% of the dissolved salts removed from it.
