RO Water Plant / Reverse Osmosis Water Plant is a process that industry uses to clean water, whether for industrial process applications or to convert brackish water to clean up wastewater or to recover salts from industrial processes. Now in a days RO Water Plant is wide use in Jar Water Project, Bottle Water Project and Battery Water Project.
RO Water Plant available as:
- Commercial Reverse Osmosis Plant
- Industrial Water Treatment Plant
- Residential Reverse Osmosis System
- Portable Reverse Osmosis System
- Heavy Duty residential Reverse Osmosis System
Typical Application of Reverse Osmosis Plant
- Jar Water Project
- Small Bottle Water Project
- Boiler Feed Water Treatment
- Food and Beverage Industry
- Pharmaceutical Industry
- Drinking Water Plant
Reverse Osmosis Membrane Process
Reverse Osmosis Membrane is common membrane materials include polyamide thin film composites (TFC), cellulose acetate (CA) and cellulose triacetate (CTA) with the membrane material being spiral wound around a tube, or hollow fibres bundled together. In the reverse osmosis process cellophane-like membranes separate purified water from contaminated water. RO is when a pressure is applied to the concentrated side of the membrane forcing purified water into the dilute side, the rejected impurities from the concentrated side being washed away in the reject water.
Factors affecting system and process performance
The performance of a system depends on factors such as membrane type, flow control, feed water quality, temperature and pressure. Also only part of the water entering the unit is useable, this is called the % recovery. This is affected by the factors listed above. Reverse Osmosis Systems must be well maintained to ensure good performance with any fouling requiring cleaning maximizing the output of water. Biocides may be needed and the choice of biocide would depend on the membrane type, alternatively other filters may be required to remove chlorine from water to protect the life of the membranes.
