In the 1960s, membranes were used for the first time in water treatment processes. Membranes are barriers used in commercial RO Plant that let water pass through, while keeping out undesirable contaminants.
Which membrane type is best for commercial RO Plants?
A membrane process is any technique that filters or removes particles from water, using a membrane barrier. Fluid travels through the membrane as a result of the pressure difference between its two sides.
Although, a wide variety of filtering media, including clay, silt, and sand, are used to clean water, one feature that sets membranes apart is their ability to remove minute components from a liquid, such as salts and ions.
Let’s understand which membrane type is best for commercial RO plants!
Various membranes are required for different operations; in general, they act as a sieve or molecularly separate water from contaminants.
1: Cellulose Based Membranes
These CAs have asymmetric membranes. Membranes for CAs are produced using acetylated cellulose. Compared to other RO membranes now on the market, these membranes provide a number of benefits.
These are quite well mechanically and easily constructed. They are also not severely damaged by chlorine. More than other membranes, like those made of aromatic polyamides, CA membranes can withstand up to 5 ppm of free chlorine.
Advantages of CA Membrane:
1. They don't cause toxicity,
2. They are simple to manufacture,
3. They possess biodegradable qualities,
4. They have little effect on the environment,
5. They might be easily accessible,
6. They are reasonably priced.
2: Thin Film Composite Membranes
Cellulose acetate membranes were the most often used option for commercial RO membranes, until the advent of thin film composite (TFC) RO membranes in 1972. Based on aromatic polyamides, TFC membrane fluxes and rejections fared better than CA.
Besides having a high rejection and flux rate, these membranes provide a number of advantages over CA membranes. For instance, some organics with low molecular weight may be rejected. They are also more stable than CA over a wider pH range and at greater temperatures.
Advantages of Thin Film Composite Membranes:
1. A high rate of unwanted materials rejection (like salts),
2. A high rate of filtering,
3. Strong mechanical resistance,
4. Offers flexibility,
5. Offers temperature consistency.
