  • Reverse Osmosis

    The United States Pharmacopeial Convention Inc. (USP) has proposed new specifications for Water for Injection (WFI) and Purified Water (PW). These specifications will include quantitative conductivity, and total organic carbon (TOC) measurements will replace 100-year-old qualitative wet chemistry tests. The impetus behind these changes is to create a means of analysis that is less ...


  • Reverse osmosis water chemistry

    Alkalinity: Alkalinity is comprised primarily of carbon dioxide, bicarbonate, carbonate and hydroxides. Naturally occurring alkalinity is the earth’s natural buffering system in that small doses of strong acids (e.g. acid rain) react with alkalinity and result in relatively small changes in pH. Carbon dioxide and bicarbonate are in a balance between the pH range of 4.4 and 8.2. At a pH of 4.4 or ...

  • Reverse Osmosis System Design

    Reverse Osmosis (R.O.) is currently used in various applications ranging from small under the sink drinking water systems to large municipal drinking water applications.  The technology is widely used and accepted as it removes both dissolved ionic and organic impurities.  This article will focus on the application of reverse osmosis membranes and discuss factors that should be ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Reverse osmosis system to reclaim wastewater

    The Facility Pragati Power Corporation Limited, formerly Delhi Vidyut Board (DVB), was formed by the Government of National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi in 1997 for the purpose of generation and distribution of power to the entire area of NCT of Delhi. To bridge the gap between demand and supply and to have reliable power supply to the capital city of Delhi, a 330 MW combined cycle Gas ...

  • EM Pure Reverse Osmosis Systems

    The Problem More Dissolved Solids Than Desired In A Water Source Water is never completely free of dissolved solids. It contains varying amounts of impurities which are identified as hardness, alkalinity, minerals, inorganic salts, total dissolved solids or other items. Removal Of Unwanted Solids Suspended solids may be removed by ...

  • Reverse osmosis and removal of minerals from drinking water

    Reverse Osmosis will generally remove salt, manganese, iron, flouride, lead, and calcium (Binnie et. al., 2002).  Most mineral constituents of water are physically larger than water molecules and they are trapped by the semi-permeable membrane and removed from drinking water when filtered through a RO (AllAboutWater.org, 2004).  Meanwhile, consumers are concerned about the removal of ...

  • Selecting a pump for sea water reverse osmosis

    Reverse osmosis (RO) desalination has become a significant process used in the purification of water. Selecting the correct pump is a significant step in a well designed and properly operating pumping system. Although the pump is a relatively small part of the overall cost of an RO system, expenses resulting from downtime and inefficiency can quickly diminish the productivity of the RO system and ...

  • Electronic Water Treatment Reduces Fouling In Reverse Osmosis

    Reverse Osmosis (RO) is used in processes requiring high-quality, purified water, such in semi-conductor processing or biochemical applications and can be used to treat boiler feed water, industrial wastewater or process water. A water purification technique, it reduces the quantity of dissolved solids in solution. RO uses waterline pressure together with energy consuming pressurizing pumps that ...

  • Types of Water Treatment Systems

    There are different types of water treatment systems, and knowing the difference between them can help you make an informed decision on just what type of treatment you’ll need for your water. There is no best water treatment system that will meet everyone’s needs—each system has its benefits and deficiencies. Here are a few ...

  • Industrial reverse osmosis system design

    Reverse osmosis (RO) is currently used in various applications ranging from small, undersink drinking water units to large industrial systems. The technology is widely used and accepted as it removes both dissolved ionic and organic impurities. This article will focus on the reverse osmosis technology in industrial applications and will discuss factors that differentiate industrial RO from ...

  • Wastewater Recovery Using Reverse Osmosis

    INTRODUCTION If one were to select a single word describing the most important factor when applying membrane technology to a wastewater application, it would be chemistry. That is not to say that other factors are not important; certainly fluid dynamics and other physical science factors play a major role as well. But it is the chemistry that is so important to success. And it is the ...

  • On the performance limitation of reverse osmosis water desalination systems

    The performance of Reverse Osmosis (RO) water desalination processes was investigated using a simulated brackish water plant based on spiral-wound membranes. A semi-rigorous mathematical model was employed in the simulation to calculate the water and salt fluxes at any point along the filtration channel. The effects of two key parameters, namely the transmembrane pressure and membrane surface ...
