Reverse osmosis industrial water systems (RO systems) are highly effective at reducing up to 99% of contaminants in water, such as dissolved solids, organics and minerals. These industrial RO systems utilize applied pressure to force water through a semipermeable membrane in a reverse fashion (against the natural osmotic process).
The overall effectiveness of an industrial RO system depends on several factors, such as:
- The temperature of the feedwater passing through the system.
- The pressure at which the feedwater passes through the system.
- The level of pretreatment the feedwater undergoes prior to going through to the RO process.
- The desired recovery rate, or percentage of final product water produced by the system.
Typical Applications for Industrial RO Systems
The primary reason for installing industrial RO systems is to reduce the mineral and organic contaminants that degrade process performance or interfere with the quality of a finished product. Culligan reverse osmosis water filtration systems are capable of filtering out ionized salts, organic molecules and other impurities down to 0.0001 microns. These advanced systems are typically used for applications such as treating boiler feedwater, makeup water, process water and discharge water.
Industrial reverse osmosis is commonly used to treat water in a variety of industries, including: chemical, cosmetic, food and beverage, electronics, medical, metal finishing, printing and more.
