Commercial RO Unit 12000 GPD - Ghana

Product Description

The process of reverse osmosis first takes place by reversing a natural process called "Osmosis". Osmosis is a natural process that moves salt through a partially porous membrane from an area of low solute concentration to an area of higher solute concentration with the goal of achieving an equilibrium of solute concentration on both sides of the membrane. Reverse osmosis defeats osmosis by employing a higher pressure pump that applies excessive pressure to the highly concentrated side of the membrane, pushing only water molecules through the partially porous membrane, while denying passage to salts, organics, and other impurities. Purified water is collected at the lower end of the membrane, while salts and the other impurities are thrown into a brine stream then into a drain.

Brackish water can be discovered in areas such as estuaries and river openings. Brackish water falls in the middle between fresh water and seawater. It isn’t as clean as fresh water, yet it isn’t as salty as seawater. Since brackish water is moderately salty, it isn’t encouraged for consumption. To produce purified water from brackish water, a reverse osmosis system relies on a process called “reverse osmosis” for assistance.



A commercial RO unit was supplied to a major company in Ghana to lower chlorine, TDS, and odor from well water. The unit included multimedia and activated carbon filters to remove particulates, odor, color and taste, and an antiscalant chemical dosing system to protect the membranes within the system from fouling. The unit was designed to produce 12,000 GPD at a feed water TDS of a maximum 1,500 ppm, it was selected from our RO-200 series and came complete with a microprocessor control panel.  Since the initial startup, the company has been receiving quality water and experienced minimal troubleshooting with the equipment. A commercial RO unit is designed and manufactured to take out such things as salts, organics, and other impurities from wells, rivers, lakes, and the ocean. To gain clean, potable water, the system uses a well-known process called "Reverse Osmosis".
