These systems take use of a popular process known as “reverse osmosis” to help in seawater purification. The job of reverse osmosis is to defeat the osmotic pressure of a natural process called “osmosis”. Osmosis naturally pushes salt through a very fine membrane from an area with low saline concentration to an area with high saline concentration. The goal of osmosis is to gain an equal amount of saline concentration on both sides. To stop this natural process, reverse osmosis pushes osmosis in the opposite direction by using a high pressure pump that adds extreme pressure to the highly concentrated saline side of the membrane. The pressure pushes only water molecules through the small pores of the membrane while rejecting salts and other impurities from flowing through. Clean, potable water successfully comes out on the permeate side while salt and the other impurities are dumped into a drain from the concentrate side.

System/Product: Containerized Sea Water Reverse Osmosis System
Flow Rate: 10,000 GPD
Components & Brands:
- Pre and Post treatments
Water-scarce countries such as Bahamas require a large amount of water distribution systems in order to supply their citizens with adequate amounts of freshwater.
A Containerized Sea Water Reverse Osmosis System complete with pre and post treatment was supplied to a major Resort in Bahamas. The system was designed to produce 10,000 GPD. From its initial start-up, the system has been running properly with minimal trouble-shooting. Industrial seawater reverse osmosis systems are mainly designed for the removal of enormous amounts of salt and other impurities from highly inconsumable water sources like the sea.
