Absolute Water Technologies is proud to offer Lakeside Water Treatment and AmeriWater manufactured equipment to our water treatment solutions lineup.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is successfully used for multiple applications including medical equipment sterilization, dialysis, surgical applications, chemical process water, cosmetics, drinking water, electronics, food and beverage processing, laboratories, process water, metal finishing, pharmaceuticals, photographic processing, printing, micro-breweries, and vehicle washes. All of these water applications could benefit by the installation of an Absolute Water Technologies Reverse Osmosis (RO) solution.
Our high purity reverse osmosis water system reduces up to 99% of dissolved mineral salts, organics, and other particles by forcing pressurized water under pressure through a semi-permeable multi-layered membrane. A Reverse Osmosis (RO) water system is induced by applying pressure with a pump to a solution with a high concentration of dissolved solids, causing water from the concentrated solution to pass through the membrane. Dissolved solids do not pass through the membrane; they are continually flushed to drain as waste (concentrate). The water that is successfully filtered permeate or product water goes on the process typically further polished with deionization (DI) tanks if megohm resistivity quality is needed and in some cases a ultra-violet light and sub-micron filtration. Absolute Water Systems sells and services multiple sizes of systems from multiple manufacturers. AWT can help you maintain your current system and ensure it runs at peak performance levels.
High Purity Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water System Performance Factors
1. Pressure – a minimum threshold of pressure must initially be reached to overcome the natural osmotic pressure. The rate at which the membrane makes product water increases as pressure is increased. A practical limit exists because salt rejection does not continually improve as pressure increases. The result can be scaling or fouling problems.
2. Temperature – membrane flux is very dependent on temperature. If temperature increases and pressure
remains constant, water production increases. The viscosity of the water changes with temperature and if the feed water is colder it becomes thicker and production can decrease. Certain applications will include a temperature -blending valve to regulate feed temperature. Reverse Osmosis (R.O.)units are volume rated at 77°F.
3. Pre-treatment/Post-treatment – the need for additional water treatment steps either before or after the Reverse Osmosis (RO) process varies, depending on water conditions and quality requirements. If raw water contains chlorine, hardness, iron, turbidity, and high total dissolved solids, then pre-treatment should be considered to extend membrane life and improve system performance. If water quality requirements require ultra-pure or sterilized water, then post-treatment steps should be considered.
Absolute Water Technologies is here to help you design your Reverse Osmosis (R.O.) system to meet your specific water quality needs. We are a proud to supply Lakeside Water and Ameriwater equipment
