The key points that should be considered when purchasing a reverse osmosis system is having the sufficient technical understanding of your water quality. This knowledge is imperative in order to ascertain the type of equipment that is needed with your specific application in mind. For example, the choice of RO membrane is extremely important for proper water filtration.
What Is A Reverse Osmosis System?
Reverse osmosis systems are the most commonly utilized water treatment processes that works to eliminate unwanted contaminants, such as total dissolved solids and salts from water. For complete information on the RO process, please refer to our "What Is Reverse Osmosis?" page.
Reverse osmosis is an economical operation that is ideal for the conversion of untreated water into fresh drinking water. The reverse of the established osmosis process sees the solvent transfer from a high solute concentration to a low solute concentration, through the use of high pressure pumps. These pumps generate osmotic pressure which forces the water solution through layers of semi-permeable membranes that filter out over 99.9% of organic and in-organic substances existing in the water. The concentration of contaminants left behind are then discharged, while the pure solvent remains on the other side of the RO system.
The method is identical to filtration via membranes. Nevertheless, there are, primary dissimilarities between membrane filtration and reverse osmosis systems. Draining, or size exclusion, is the prevalent eradicating technique in membrane technology, so the mechanism can generally attain proper particle exclusion irrespective of operating conditions including affecting concentration and pressure. RO systems rather function by integrating an interfacial framework such that the capacity of removal depends on the concentration of the solution, pressure and the rate of water flux.

Reverse Osmosis Systems for Commercial Applications
Pure Aqua offers a complete line of Commercial Reverse Osmosis Systems (RO) and Water Purification Systems for multiple applications such as businesses, car wash, restaurants, and residential complexes. These RO systems are designed to work on a continuous basis to produce high-purity water. Our standard reverse osmosis system for commercial use is available in capacities ranging from 350 to 15,000 gallons per day. Larger custom systems are also available.
Commercial Reverse Osmosis Systems are often utilized by applying pressure to the water and pushing it through the RO membrane to extract harmful ions and molecules from the feed water. The outcome of this sequence is the solution being held back from migrating to the other side of the system and subsequently being discharged. This process results in the creation of purified water that is safe to consume or use in many applications that require high quality water.
Pure Aqua offers a wide range of pre-treatment that are used in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system, such as:
