Reverse Osmosis / Desalination

Desalination is the removal of dissolved salts from water. This is done by either Reverse Osmosis (RO) or Distillation. In most applications Reverse Osmosis is the most efficient way of desalinating water.

Osmosis is a process found in all biological systems and results in water from a dilute solution passing spontaneously through a semi-permeable membrane into a more concentrated solution on the other side.

Reverse Osmosis is a process that achieves this separation of dissolved salts and impurities from a water solution by means of pressure exerted on a semi-permeable membrane. The salts are unable to pass through the membrane and are collected in a concentrated form. Treated water is known as permeate. The process can be repeated one or more times to further concentrate the brine and reduce the percentage of rejected concentrate water.

Reverse Osmosis desalination is the most technologically advanced method of purifying water from a range of sources including: sea, river, mains, bore, artesian or surface. Our systems ensure the highest levels of productivity gain, equipment longevity and improved water recovery.
