| Reverse osmosis (RO) is a process that removes 95-98% of all the ionized dissolved solids from water. Both positively charged ions (cations) such as calcium, magnesium, and sodium, and negatively charged ions (anions) such as carbonate, bicarbonate, chloride, and sulfate are removed. RO is the reverse of the natural osmosis process, and is accomplished by applying a high pressure to a solution. The amount of pressure required for RO applications varies based on the types of membranes in use, the differential pressure across the membrane, and the required water flow. |
Crossbow Water provides RO systems for water treatment for use in specific applications, ranging from small pre-engineered units to large flow custom RO water systems. Some of Crossbow Water’s RO standard system designs are provided below. Click on the product name for additional information (PDF brochure - will open in new window).
