Test your knowledge of reverse osmosis systems problems by taking this Culligan Industrial Reverse Osmosis Water Systems quiz! If you get stumped, click on the link beneath each question to find the answer on our website.
1. Reverse osmosis systems are used to sanitize source water by neutralizing microbes.
True
False
False: RO systems are designed to remove dissolved minerals, particles, and organics. While microbes are organic, the systems are not to be the primary sanitizing system.
2. Large industrial plating facilities often use reverse osmosis for an efficient supply of rinse water.
True
False
True: One of the limiting factors for the plating industry is the quantity of water needed to constantly wash/rinse product and equipment. Purchasing water and paying for after use water treatment is extremely cost-prohibitive. Industrial reverse osmosis systems allow the same water to be reused over and over again, and reduce water costs dramatically.
3. The reverse osmosis process eliminates up to 95% of dissolved minerals, particles, and organics from industrial water.
True
False
True: RO systems regularly filter out 95% of impurities.
4. Reverse osmosis systems are capable of filtering out ionized salts, organic molecules, and other impurities down to 1/10,000th microns.
True
False
True: Properly designed and implemented industrial RO systems filter out even the smallest of impurities.
5. RO systems are never used for treating boiler feed water.
True
False
False: These advanced systems are typically used for applications such as treating boiler feed water, makeup water, process water, and discharge water.
6. Industrial reverse osmosis is used in these industries: chemical, electronics, cosmetic, food, beverage, and medical industries.
True
False
True: RO systems are used across a broad range of industries around the globe.
7. Industrial RO systems need to be replaced every 12 months.
True
False
False: RO systems include regenerative mechanisms to allow the membranes inside the filters to be refreshed to new specifications, or replaced. Properly designed systems can operate for many years.
8. Industrial RO systems have been miniaturized for small industrial uses.
True
False
True: Compact reverse osmosis systems allow a smaller footprint for specialized installations.
9. RO systems are limited to 80 gallons per minute.
True
False
False: Modular industrial RO systems can be configured to output needs exceeding more than 180 GPM.
10. Reverse osmosis systems can be automated to respond to an industry’s changing needs.
True
False
True: Specialized systems can be configured to respond to changing needs either on the feed water side, or the downstream equipment requirements.
