Reducing Costs With RO

Today, beverage production facilities make a wide range of products, including carbonated soft drinks, energy drinks, juices, teas and purified drinking water. The number one ingredient in all of these products is water. Naturally, the quality of the water, as well as the operation of the water treatment system, are key to the quality and profitability of the facility.

RO Systems Improve Flow Rates and Reduce Waste

Publication Date: 
April 24, 2012

Axeon CRO Reverse Osmosis Systems feature a sleek, ultra-compact design manufactured for residential applications and for feedwaters up to 1,000 total dissolved solids (TDS). The systems utilize a single-cartridge design, which allows for high-flow membrane performance. The large-diameter tubing of the CRO systems provides a 30% faster flow rate from the faucet. The unique flow path of these systems can reduce water waste by 50%, resulting in more water to the tank and less water down the drain.

R2 and M2-Series RO systems are engineered and manufactured for commercial and light industrial applications and for feed waters up to 10,000 TDS. These high-efficiency systems use low-energy membrane elements that deliver high quality water at low operating pressures. This in turn makes AXEON R2 and M2-Series the first low-energy brackish water systems in the marketplace.
