The Pros and Cons of Commercial Reverse Osmosis Systems
Commercial reverse osmosis systems are a great investment for industries, offices and condominiums to have for treating tap, drinking and brackish water. There are many custom reverse systems for commercial use that are designed to produce very high quality water at the lowest cost and without using too much energy. These energy efficient units are engineered using advanced technology and hence are capable of accurate and customized solutions. However, it is only normal to wonder about the benefits of these systems and if they outweigh the cons.
Pros of Commercial Reverse Osmosis Systems
Our commercial reverse osmosis systems remove unwanted dissolved solids from the available water you have using efficient reverse osmosis membranes. This results in lower energy consumption as well as less waste water and hence, more efficiency.
Reverse osmosis is the water filtration process that is great for industrial and commercial levels. How it works is by forcing pressured raw water through membranes which trap the concentrate allowing pure water to be produced. This process also rejects about 99.9% of the bacteria making it a highly successful one.
Commercial reverse osmosis systems are especially popular in sectors such as pharmaceutical industries, dairy, food and beverage industries. Their environmental, maintenance, health and safety, as well as cost-saving benefits make the systems a popular way of filtering water. Here are the pros in a nutshell:
- Purifies water by trapping concentrates, particles and impurities and removing and filtering them from the water.
- Improves the quality of water by filtering out contaminants such as herbicides, heavy metals and pesticides.
- Are easily customized, user-friendly, environmentally friendly, robust and reliable. They can have cleaning skids, filters, chemical dosing, anti-scalant and other features based on the needs of the customers. This allows the systems to be used in removing even the hardness of water, chlorine, colour, odours, sulphur and iron as well as particles, solids and other contaminants.
If there is no pre-treatment of the waste water, then the membranes on the systems can disintegrate at a faster rate. This can be avoided by pre-treating the water before passing it through the commercial reverse osmosis system.
Tips for Buying
Before buying a commercial reverse osmosis system, then consider your flow rate in GPD or m3/day, feed water analysis, removal of oil and grease from the water, dimensions of the area of installation and finally, the available phase, voltage and frequency. All these factors will ensure that we provide the best possible system to suit your needs.
