Testing Packages Aid in RO System Design

Publication Date: 
May 23, 2012

When considering reverse osmosis (RO) for water treatment, there are several things that should be taken into account. One of the most important things to consider is the quality of the water to be treated. RO is widely used to remove harmful inorganic contaminants; however, due to the limitations and higher operating cost, pretreatment of the water may be necessary. For example, hardness minerals are common in groundwater, and at high levels, pretreating with a softener is often recommended.

Test Package

The Complete RO Screen was developed with input from membrane manufacturers and treatment professionals. This package tests for most factors that can reduce the life of an RO membrane. Due to the nature of RO produced water, the testing was designed to provide lower detection levels. This test package is also beneficial for other applications that require pure water. New and improved compact packaging will reduce shipping costs.
