Our Purification process utilizes Reverse Osmosis (“RO”) membranes to carry out the bulk of the water purifying that is done in one of our Water Systems. RO water purification is a technology that uses applied pressure to move water through a semipermeable membrane, separating the water from other ions, molecules and larger particulates. Reverse Osmosis is useful in removing many types of dissolved solids, as well as bacteria living in the water. The RO process is useful for many industrial processes as well as the production of potable drinking water.
At on-site locations where contamination levels are low we use Fresh Water Membranes. These membranes are designed to remove contamination in concentrations that are less than 500 ppm. These types of membranes require the least amount of energy to operate and blocks 99% of contaminants from the source water supply. We recommend using these membranes for cleaning water coming into a household from either municipal or well water sources.
We utilized Brackish Water Membranes in areas of mid-level contamination. Brackish Water Membranes are designed to block 99% of contaminants in water sources with up to a concentration of 5,000 ppm of contamination. These membranes are still able to operate with a low energy profile. We recommend utilizing these membranes in lake or pond water purification, or at brackish water sites.
At sites with a high contamination concentration up to 50,000 ppm, we utilize Salt Water Membranes. These types of membranes will require the highest energy cost and will maintain efficiency, blocking and removing 99% of contaminants from the water supply. We recommend using these membranes for water purification of ocean water or for industrial applications.
