Reverse osmosis is a water treatment process, that forces water through an extremely fine semi-permeable membrane, (pore size around 0.1 nm), to remove dissolved solids, but Strictly speaking, RO is not a size exclusion process based on pore size; it depends on ionic diffusion to affect separation.
Reverse Osmosis is commonly used for desalination of sea water and brackish water for potable and industrial uses.
High purity water can be produced as well by means of double pass desalination.
RO is used as a primary treatment to produce Ultrapure water.
RO is also used in cheese whey concentration, fruit juice concentration and others.
MDC Water designs and builds Industrial Reverse Osmosis systems (RO Systems) that can remove up to 99.5% of dissolved salts and virtually all colloidal and suspended matter from the most challenging feed water including municipal, brackish, and sea water applications. RO units produce a high quality water yield at a low cost compared to other purification processes.
Our Industrial Reverse Osmosis systems are custom designed specifically for your water treatment needs by an experienced team. MDC Water builds the RO system using only high quality components that will provide reliable long-term operation. They arrive at your site hydrostatically tested and ready to produce water with complete documentation and operator training. We also provide the pretreatment equipment and chemistry required to ensure optimal performance and life span of your RO membranes.
