German-engineered, NSF-certified Bluefilters RO-6-BF RO systems use five stages of filtration. A re-mineralizing cartridge returns beneficial minerals back into the water. Optional permeate and booster pumps raise water pressure and increase overall efficiency.
Designed to produce low dissolved solids water from tap or well water, AMI small commercial low-energy RO systems use extra-low-energy XLE RO membranes that run at 100 to 140 psi. The product water can be used in applications such as spot-free rinse, water stores, whole-house systems, labs, ice makers, humidification, misting and more.
The Ultra Contemporary Faucet for reverse osmosis features lead-free construction and brings high quality to the high-end kitchen. It is available in five finishes to match any design aesthetic. All mounting hardware is included, and it is NSF-listed to NSF/ANSI Standard 61-9 and 372.
Reverse osmosis (RO) systems are water treatment devices that reduce a variety of total dissolved solids (TDS) and other contaminants by reversing the natural flow of water. These systems use reverse pressure to force water through a semi-permeable membrane, so water passes from a more concentrated solution to a more dilute solution. Most RO systems also include pre- and post-filters to keep contaminants like silt and chlorine from damaging the membrane.
Voluntary certification of RO systems can increase safety & substantiate labels claims
The UltraGuard ultrafiltration (UF) membrane cartridge delivers purified water with 100% efficiency while providing protection against bacteria, cysts, viruses and turbidity. Unlike reverse osmosis (RO) membranes, the UF membrane does not produce wastewater, nor does it require electricity or additional components.
Convert an existing RO system or upgrade a basic water filtration system to UF with the easy-to-install retrofit kit. The system also is available ready to install.
Plant uses membrane distillation technology to enable desalination of water
In February 2014, the small island of Gulhi welcomed a membrane distillation plant, which uses membrane distillation technology that enables desalination of water for the 1,200 inhabitants and tourists on the island using waste heat from a local generator.
“We chose an environment with very difficult operating conditions to test the strength and reliability of our system. This is a viable solution for many coastal communities and inland areas with growing water problems through increasing salinity of groundwater,” said Florian Bollen, CEO of Aquiva Foundation.
Webcast will occur on Feb. 17
Dow Water Academy will host a free webinar on Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 3 p.m. (CST). The webinar will explore the concept and theory behind direct-coupled ultrafiltration/reverse osmosis, as well as share best practices, recommendations and case study examples. Those interested may register here.
The Ultra Contemporary faucet offers a modern, sophisticated design for the kitchen sink. It comes with a lead-free brass body, smooth-operating lever-style handle and patented removable modular air gap. It also features a protective spout tip to prevent after-drip and a high-reach, 12-in. neck that swivels 360 degrees. The NSF/ANSI Standards 61-9 and 372-certified faucet is available in polished chrome, satin nickel, venetian bronze, brushed stainless and antique bronze.
Reading textbooks, studying, cramming for tests—for many, these words evoke not-so-fond memories of school days and midterm exams. They also likely sound familiar to water professionals who have qualified for certifications through the Water Quality Assn. (WQA): Until a few years ago, those seeking certification had to read a textbook, then take a test.

The point-of-use (POU) residential reverse osmosis (RO) system has remained a saturated, commoditized segment within the water filtration market with few technological advancements in system performance for nearly two decades. Yet, RO technology produces high-quality drinking water for consumers, making it essential to the success of water treatment businesses.
