Reverse Osmosis Membranes - Commercial
Commercial Reverse Osmosis Systems
Reverse Osmosis technology is a water purification method that involves passing water across a membrane to purify it. This aids in the separation of dissolved chemicals and pollutants, ensuring that only clean water goes through, making water safe for ingestion and decreasing the risk of numerous water-borne illnesses like as diarrhea and vomiting.
The process of osmosis occurs naturally without mechanical interference. When a semi-permeable membrane separates two liquids with varying solute concentrations, the liquid will migrate from the low solute concentration to the high solute concentration until equilibrium is reached.
Applying pressure causes a solvent with a high solute concentration to pass through a semi-permeable membrane into a region with a low solute concentration; this process is known as reverse osmosis. In order for the process to be successful, the feed water pressure must be higher than the osmotic pressure. Consequently, low-pressure systems are effective with more dilute fluids, but high-pressure systems are necessary for highly concentrated solutions (such as seawater desalination). Reverse osmosis is the most cost-effective method we have for purifying water to ultra-stringent specifications, and it's becoming increasingly commonplace.
How much does a commercial reverse osmosis system cost?
A commercial or large reverse osmosis system may cost anywhere between $800 and $30,000, not counting installation costs that can vary anywhere between $800 and can exceed $2000.
