Reverse osmosis/sea water reverse osmosis is a very popular technology in water purification. It is commonly seen in countries where water is scarce or sea water is readily available. High purity water can be achieved by using a membrane to remove ions in the water. However, process efficiency is related to effective pre-treatment of the influent to ensure maximum membrane performance.
Solid contaminants in the cooling water cause many problems including:
• Fouling – results in clogging of membrane surface, reducing removal efficiency, through put volume and operation time.
• Increased maintenance cost for cleaning.
Products Suitable For This Application:
|Feature-Tec Filter Product||Applied to||Description|
|SAFT/SAS/sand filter||Raw water filtration||Automatic, self cleaning filter. Removes coarse, solid particles to extend the operation time of downstream filters.|
|Cartridge filter (Jumbo/FSH)||RO pre-filter (MF, UF)||Depth filters like cartridge filters remove residual particles to protect the RO membranes from clogging. High dirt holding capacity or high flow rate types available.|
