Reverse Osmosis Water Filter Systems
On this pages we feature a range of commercial and industrial reverse osmosis water filter systems, which we supply to clients all over Australia. These units can be used at home, on farms, in warehouses, on construction sites and for many other domestic, commercial and industrial applications.
What is reverse osmosis?
Reverse osmosis is membrane filtration technology that works by forcing liquids under pressure through the very tiny pores of a semi-permeable membrane. These filters can remove many types of ions and other molecules from liquids, and this method is used in many industrial processes and also in the production of potable water.
How it works as a filter system
In home units, water, driven by normal city pressure, flows first through two filters, which removes soluble and suspended particles from the liquid like organic contaminants including chlorine.
Then it enters the membrane. This is tight, sheet-like reverse osmosis filter that allows solutions to pass through but rejects dissolved solids like sodium and impurities like lead and arsenic.
The remaining contaminants are concentrated and washed from the surface of the membrane down the drain. The resulting pure H2O flows to a storage tank.
Depending on the type of equipment and the volumes that need to be processed, the membranes may last between 6 months and one year. Effective membrane life depends on the quality of the liquid that is entering the unit and how many litres are consumed each day.
