Maintenance Tips for the Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant

The demand for high standard reverse osmosis plants is increasing drastically. It is one of the most efficient methods of treating water since it can remove harmful contaminants. In this system, the water is passed through a semi-permeable membrane to eliminate all the impurities. The water now becomes safe for drinking and consumption. The idea of a reverse osmosis water plant is innovative, and you should check the price of the RO plant for an additional guarantee.

What is the Reverse Osmosis Process?

Based on the principle of osmosis, the system reverses the osmotic pressure, and the water is forced through a semi-permeable membrane. This semi-permeable membrane removes large amounts of contaminants; almost 95%-99% of the dissolved salts stay behind the reject stream. The water pressure depends on the concentration of salt in the feed water. A higher concentration requires increased pressure to overcome the osmotic pressure.

In the osmosis process, the water gets more concentrated while passing passes through the membrane. This helps it attain equilibrium on both the sides. The system of reverse osmosis, on the other hand, blocks contaminants and prevents them from entering the other side of the membrane that is less concentrated.

Membrane Filtration in the RO System

The membrane filter acts as a barrier that separates the contaminants from the water. There are different configurations for filter membranes. There is RO membranes, UF or Ultrafiltration membrane, Nanofiltration membrane etc.

In Reverse osmosis, the system uses a semi-permeable membrane that allows the passing of water molecules. This way, the membrane functions in separating the water into different pathways.

This Nanofiltration technology works similarly to reverse osmosis, except that the results are not extremely fine.

Reverse Osmosis Filtration Maintenance Tips

The RO systems have five filtration stages. You can follow this guideline to maintain your RO filters in the water plant-

  • Replacing the stages of the filter, once to twice every year
  • Cleaning the entire system in a detailed manner once a year
  • Checking the pressure of the water storage tank pressure once a year
  • Replacing the RO member every two or three years

Cleaning the membranes is suggested every 3-4 months. The membrane is the central part of the RO system. The perforated thin RO membrane separates solutes from the solvent, therefore allowing the only pure solvent to pass through it. Proper cleaning will enable you to prevent the clogging of the pores. The membranes used for filtration will have a longer lifespan if they undergo routine cleaning.
