Reverse Osmosis Membrane
are a selective barrier used in anything. The idea of membranes has been derived from the biological cell membrane. It is an artificial polymeric barrier used to stop any kind of dust or dirt from getting further deep into any kind of system.
RO means Reverse Osmosis. Reverse osmosis is a method of filtration. This filtration system removes any kind of big molecules by applying pressure on one side of the membrane. The use of the RO system is applied in filtering the water in the following forms :
Drinking waterBoiler feed waterSea waterDesalinationUltra pure waterUSP waterWater reuseBrackish waterHigh flow commercial application
Reverse Osmosis system is the most effective system for any kind of cleaning of water. The basic filtering media is the RO membrane.
How does an RO membrane work?
The RO membrane is a membrane that is a form of a filter in general terms. The pore sizes of its elements can be between 0.1 to 5,000 nanometers (nm). The size depends upon the component being filtered from the water. The smallest filter can restrict minerals and salts to pass through the membrane and purify the water through a pressure system. The pressure system works by applying pressure to the water which forces the water to gush through the membrane which in the process purifies it and cleans the water. The membrane systems are strong enough to filter different bacteria’s and germs from the water as well.
