Reverse osmosis (r. O. ) is a membrane separation technology that is very effective in removing almost all inorganic contaminants and dissolved solids in fluids.
the membranes for r. O. Can be able to remove up to 99,8% of substances present in water, ranging from inorganic chemicals to organic and biological contaminants. Reverse osmosis can remove contaminants and dissolved solids using a semi-permeable membrane that permits only water and not dissolved ions (such as sodium and chloride) to pass through it. Contaminated water is forced through the membrane by high pressure, leaving contaminants and dissolved solids behind. Membranes are available in a variety of pore sizes and characteristics.
this technology is effective to treat water with total dissolved solids as high as 48,600 mg/l (gulf region seawater). These units are compact, easy and simple to operate and maintain.
they are relatively insensitive to changes in flow rate and operate immediately without any break-in. For bigger r. O. Plants special attention is given to its relatively operating and capital cost.
