What is Reverse Osmosis (RO)?
The process of driving a solvent through a membrane from a region of high solute concentration to a region of low solute concentration by providing a pressure greater than the osmotic pressure is known as reverse osmosis (RO). The membrane in this case is semi-permeable, which means it enables solvent to pass through but not the solute.
Which membranes are used in Commercial RO Plants?
The membranes used in a Commercial RO Planthave a dense polymer barrier layer in which separation occurs. This layer must be created by applying pressure to the high solids water to force it through the membrane, with pressures ranging from 8 to 14 bar for fresh and brackish water and 40 to 70 bar for seawater, which has a natural osmotic pressure of around 24 bar (350 psi) that must be overcome.
Flow Range for Commercial RO Plants
We have the following range of commercial RO systems:
50 LPH RO Plants, 100 LPH RO Plants, 150 LPH RO Plants, 250 LPH RO Plants, 500 LPH RO Plants, 1000 LPH RO Plants, 2000 LPH RO Plants,and much more.
How to Design Consideration for Commercial RO Plants?
1: Crossflow filtration is used to remove particles from the feed water by using a fraction of it as a wash or reject stream during the filtering process.
2: Temperature and pressure are the primary determinants of product flow.
3: The features of the feed water limit system recovery, which can be regulated with the use of a recycle stream.
4: The percentage of dissolved solids given to the membrane determines the product quality.
5: High recoveries raise the concentration of dissolved solids in the system, lowering quality, but they also make the system more efficient and reduce waste.
Product and Reject water in Commercial RO Plants
RO Plants do not have enough capacity to handle all of the water that is sent to them. The term "product" refers to purified water, whereas "concentration" or "reject" refers to effluent. We as Commercial RO Plant Manufacturers suggest consulting experts before installing a Commercial RO Plant.
