  • 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 ...

  • What is Reverse Osmosis?

    Reverse osmosis is used quite a bit nowadays to help supply people with water. Without the help of a process such as reverse osmosis purification, there would be a shortage of water for a lot of people in many different towns and cities as a lot of people are dependent on getting their water access directly from reverse osmosis filter systems, even if they do not know that is where their water ...

  • Features of Reverse Osmosis (RO)

    1. Removal of dissolved salts  Reverse osmosis can stably and effectively remove dissolved salts, dissolved organic substances (trihalomethane, its precursors, agricultural chemicals, etc.), and micro fine particles (living germs, dead germs, and many other micro fine particles) from water. Thus it is ideal for a wide area of applications ranging from production of ultra pure water to ...

  • A study of the physical and chemical damage on reverse osmosis membranes detected by autopsies

    Abstract Water treatment by reverse osmosis technology has as main aim to reject the maximum percentage of ions from raw water, giving as much treated water flow as possible. When there is a loss in these two parameters performance, it is essential to find the source of the failure, in order to use the necessary tools for its recovery. At this point, membrane autopsies are a very ...

  • Reverse osmosis concentrate treatment by chemical oxidation and moving bed biofilm processes

    In the present work, four oxidation techniques were investigated (O3, O3/UV, H2O2/O3, O3/H2O2/UV) to pre-treat reverse osmosis (RO) concentrate before treatment in a moving-bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) system. Without previous oxidation, the MBBR was able to remove a small fraction of the chemical oxygen demand (COD) ...

  • Reverse Osmosis and Electrodeionization Alternate to Service DI

    Electrodeionization (EDI) is a chemical free water treatment technology that eliminates the need for off line chemical regeneration. EDI has gone from an unproven and unknown commodity to one that has revolutionized the industry in the past 20 years. Much has been written and discussed about the use of EDI systems for industrial applications such as power plants and semiconductors, where flows ...

  • Control of metal oxide fouling in reverse osmosis

    High levels of iron and manganese, along with large quantities of dissolved gases in the wells created concern for the viability of a conventional desalination design for the proposed City of Camarillo groundwater desalination facility. To identify viable pre-treatment process(es) for the control of metal oxide fouling in reverse osmosis, a 12-month pilot study was undertaken. The pilot study ...

  • CSM fouling resistant reverse osmosis membranes

    This paper particularly deals with new fouling resistant RO membranes which are made more hydrophilic and less changed or charged with the same charge as the foulants to reduce hydrophobic interaction and charge attraction or to increase charge repulsion, respectively. The fouling resistant membranes manufactured by Woongjin Chemical in Korea are coated with hydrophilic monomers followed by ...

  • Innovative seawater intake for reverse osmosis desalination plants

    Seawater desalination plants typically consist of four major unit operations: seawater intake, pretreatment, Reverse Osmosis (RO) stage, and posttreatment and brine discharge. The best way is to go through vertical beach wells, but the increase of the production capacity of the plants built in recent years makes open intake the only solution. These open ocean intakes draw seawater through the ...

  • 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 ...
