Reverse Osmosis Domestic Units
Reverse Osmosis has proved to be the most reliable and cost effective method of desalinating water, and hence its use has become more and more widespread.
Energy consumption is usually some 70% less than for comparable evaporation technologies. Advancements have been made in membrane technology, resulting in stable, long lived membrane elements. Component parts have been improved as well, reducing maintenance and down time. Additional advancements in pretreatment have been made in recent years, further extending membrane life and improving performance. Reverse Osmosis delivers product water or permeate having essentially the same temperature as the raw water source (an increase of 1°C or 1.8° F may occur due to pumping and friction in the piping). This is more desirable than the hot water produced by evaporation technologies.
R/O Systems can be designed to deliver virtually any required product water quality. For these and other reasons, R/O is usually the preferred method of desalination today.
Aquamarine Water Treatment design and manufacture a full range of desalination units, and systems can be custom design to customer's specifications.
Numerous units have been built for the following industries, to name but a few.
- Diamond mining
- Oil rigs
- Marine vessels (Fishing, yachting, power boats, shipping etc.)
- Coastal & islands hotels
- Large irrigation schemes
- Private islands
