What is REVERSE OSMOSIS?

Reverse osmosis is a membrane process used to remove dissolved solids from water. The process is suitable for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Fresh water purification for boiler feed
  • Brackish water desalination
  • Sea water desalination
  • Concentration of impurities

Reverse osmosis systems can be supplied in any size, from several cubic meters per day to thousands of cubic meters per day.

PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION

Reverse osmosis uses a high pressure feed to overcome the osmotic pressure of the system. It is this pressure that forces pure water through the membrane, leaving the undesirable impurities behind.

PLANT CONFIGURATION

The optimum design for a reverse osmosis plant will depend on the application. To find out the best design for your application, we encourage you to: Contact us at sales@petrosep.com

Reverse Osmosis Industrial Applications

Reverse osmosis systems are used in many industrial applications. A few of the major uses are:

Boiler Feed water Treatment

RO is used to reduce the solids content of waters prior to feeding into boilers. RO membranes are capable of obtaining a high degree of rejection of the dissolved solids.

Pharmaceutical Water

Reverse osmosis is an approved treatment process for the production of USP grade water for pharmaceutical applications.

Food & Beverage

Much of the water used to process food products and to produce beverages is treated, in part by a reverse osmosis system.

Semiconductor

Reverse osmosis is an accepted component of a treatment process to produce ultrapure water in the semiconductor industry.

Reverse Osmosis Industries

Reverse osmosis is used in virtually every industrial segment. Some of these are:

  • Power generation
  • Pulp & Paper
  • Chemical & petrochemical
  • Food & beverage
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Semiconductor
