Reverse Osmosis Applications

There are many applications for reverse osmosis in commercial and industrial settings. Learn more about our industrial and commercial reverse osmosis applications.

There are many applications for reverse osmosis in commercial and industrial settings. RO systems can be used for drinking water applications, food and beverage servce, ice production/drinking water, humidification, boiler pretreatment, vehicle wash and water jet cutting machines.. For example, untreated water can cause poor tasting food and beverages, improperly carbonated beverages, increased costs, spotted vehicles, increased maintenance costs and increased utility bills.


Pretreating water for deionization systems.

RO water is not as pure as ion exchanged (DI) water and is often used before the ion exchange process. When using RO water to feed deionizers or ion exchange systems, it extends their life and improves efficiency. In order to achieve high purity water, an RO is normally needed. Also, RO can remove bacteria and water borne parasites.

Reverse Osmosis food and beverage processing quality.

Reverse osmosis can be used for separating constituents of foods/beverages on a molecular basis, where the foods are in solution and where a solution is separated from one less concentrated by a semi-permeable membrane. Reverse osmosis is a more economical operation for concentrating food liquids (such as fruit juices) than conventional heat-treatment processes. Research has been done on concentration of orange juice and tomato juice. Its advantages include a lower operating cost and the ability to avoid heat-treatment processes, which makes it suitable for heat-sensitive substances like the protein and enzymes found in most food products.

Pretreating boiler feed water to reduce scaling and energy use with reverse osmosis.

Impurities in water become an important consideration when water is to be used for steam generation. With the trend toward higher-pressure boilers, pretreatment has become the key to successful operation of industrial power plants. Feedwater must be pretreated to remove impurities to control deposition, carryover, and corrosion in the boiler system. Also, treated water has no minerals for scale formation and has very low dissolved gasses.

Pretreating cooling tower make-up water to reduce scaling and energy use with reverse osmosis.

The primary use of large, industrial cooling towers is to remove the heat absorbed in the circulating cooling water systems used in power plants, petroleum refineries, petrochemical plants, natural gas processing plants, food processing plants, semi-conductor plants, and for other industrial facilities such as in condensers of distillation columns, for cooling liquid in crystallization, etc. The chemistry of the makeup water including the amount of dissolved minerals can vary and cause problems such as scaling. Treating the circulating cooling water in large industrial cooling tower systems can minimize scaling.

Improve steamer operation, ice production, drinking water quality for restaurants with reverse osmosis.

Reverse osmosis can remove minerals that increase efficiency of restaurant steamers. Equipment life is extended and maintenance is reduced. Water purity can also affect dish washing efficiency, washing mashine lifespan, linen/textile lifespans and more. RO systems can increase system efficiency as well as the lifespan of the water using machinery.

Improve water jet cutting operating efficiency and extend orifice life with reverse osmosis.

The quality of the water used by any abrasive waterjet plays a very important role in the life of certain critical components. Contaminants in the water can create a multitude of problems for the orifice. Particles suspended in the water impact the edge of the orifice and can chip it. This results in poor jet quality, poor cutting capability and lowered mixing tube life.

Other commercial and industrial reverse osmosis applications.

Reverse osmosis systems can be used to increase the efficiency of car washes, humidification, the purity of manufacturing water and more.
