Construction of Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Treatment
The principle of reverse osmosis( RO) functions on the filtration system that results in the junking of a large number of pollutants and contaminations from wastewater by applying pressure to it when it’s on one side of a membrane.
How does RO work?
This water treatment facility employs a high-pressure pump to enhance the pressure on the salt side of the RO, facilitating the movement of water across the semipermeable RO membrane. As a result, almost 95%-99% of dissolved salts are removed in the reject stream. Put simply, when wastewater enters the RO membrane and pressure is applied, water molecules pass through the semipermeable membrane while other salts are prevented from passing through and are discharged to the reject stream (also known as brine stream or concentrate).
Industries similar as mechanic, boiler feed, semiconductor manufacturing, metal finishing for food and libation extensively use reverse osmosis water treatment plants.
