  • An overview of reverse osmosis

    Reverse osmosis is the separation or filtration method by which many types of molecules and ion particles are removed from the solution through porous membrane-technology filtration. Reverse osmosis systems work very well at removing all types of hard minerals and contaminants in the water. Hard water minerals are easily removed from the reverse osmosis membrane. An amount of pressure is applied ...

  • Influence of feed quality on seawater reverse osmosis performance

    The trouble-free operation of a Reverse Osmosis (RO) plant relies on the quality of the treated feed water, which highlights the need for optimisation of the pre-treatment steps. The quality of raw seawater varies with time in terms of suspended and colloidal load, along with the dissolved salt content. In a conventional pre-treatment scheme, consisting of clarification and particulate and micron ...

  • Energy cost for desalination evaporation versus reverse osmosis

    The selection of the appropriate desalination technology between evaporation and reverse osmosis is grounded on several factors, including investment cost, maintenance cost, degree of availability, heaviness of the duty, and the required purity of the desalinated water. The main factor is often the running cost of the plant, and specifically the cost of the consumed energy. This paper intends to ...

  • Principle of Reverse Osmosis (RO)

    Osmosis  Osmosis is a phenomenon where pure water flows from a dilute solution through a semi permeable membrane to a higher concentrated solution. Semi permeable means that the membrane will allow small molecules and ions to pass through it but acts as a barrier to larger molecules or dissolved substances. To illustrate this, assume that a semi permeable membrane is placed between two ...

  • Reverse Osmosis Chemicals

    Reverse osmosis is an efficient way of purifying water but operational efficiency can only be obtained if the plant and in particular the membranes are not kept clean.  If this is not the case, membranes quickly become fouled result in lower output and ultimately resulting in the costly necessity of having to replace them.  Various products are available which have been developed to ...

  • Before Using Reverse Osmosis Membranes, We must Pay Attention to these Six Points

    1.  Influent pressure Influent pressure will affect the flux and desalination rate of reverse osmosis membranes. The permeability increases with the increase of influent pressure. Because reverse osmosis membranes can not absolutely intercept dissolved salts in the water, there is always a certain amount of permeation with the increase of pressure, because the permeation rate of the ...
