Cold feed water temperatures can cause havoc for reverse osmosis system operators. As water temperatures decrease, so can permeate water production rates. Permeate flow decreases by approximately 3% for every degree Celsius decreased.more
In today’s marketplace, there is a growing demand for higher production rates from RO membranes. Many light commercial applications require high water output, which standard thin-film membranes have not been able to treat. Many tap water reverse osmosis membrane elements were initially designed to achieve specified flow and rejection rates under only 15% recovery, thus dispensing a lot of water to the drain.more
Axeon Water Technologies offers a line of proprietary chemicals specially formulated to minimize the harmful effects of foulants, maximize the efficiency of systems, and extend the performance of reverse osmosis (RO) membranes.
Axeon S-100 is an effective antiscalant, formulated for feedwater with the highest levels of metal oxides, silica and scale-forming minerals. It works with up to 150 grains of hardness and possibly higher, keeping the system running smoothly and lowering the chance of fouling.more
Axeon Water Technologies has enhanced the R1-Series reverse osmosis (RO) system offering with three new models. These systems are engineered and manufactured for commercial and light industrial applications up to 20,000 gal per day. The high-efficiency systems use Axeon ultra-low-energy membrane elements that deliver high-quality water with improved energy efficiency.more
Reverse osmosis (RO) has become the standard technology for water purification in numerous commercial and industrial applications. This trend has largely been driven by the advancement of low-pressure RO membranes with enhanced energy savings. Axeon Water Technologies is a leader in utilizing innovative proprietary technology for increasing permeate production while lowering operating pressures in RO applications.more
Axeon Water Technologies carries a complete line of filter cartridges equipped to remove and reduce common water problems such as sediment, bacteria, cysts, chlorine and organics from various water sources. Cartridges can be used as standalone solutions or integrated into system configurations for maximum effectiveness.more
In any membrane filtration system, scaling is inevitable. There are many forms of scale, some of the most common being calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, barium sulfate and strontium sulfate. Left unmanaged, crystal scale will accumulate and become a mass of crystals on the surface of the membrane, causing blockage. This is harmful to reverse osmosis (RO) systems because it increases operating pressure. High pressure can put stress on the system and reduce product output and efficiency levels. A severely scaled membrane easily can reduce its gallon output by more than half.more
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.more
AXEON’s residential and commercial membrane elements are manufactured using membrane film technology. AXEON low-energy reverse osmosis (RO) membranes provide customers with improved system performance and energy cost savings.
The residential polyamide-thin film composite membrane elements operate at pressures as low as 50 psi and deliver 23% more permeate water than other elements. With flow rates up to 150 gal per day (gpd) and rejection rates of up to 98%, AXEON elements are ideal for removing high percentages of total dissolved solids.more
When it comes to conserving energy and providing efficient operation in a reverse osmosis (RO) system, the use of low-energy membranes can significantly enhance performance and reduce costs. While typical tap water membrane elements operate in the 150 to 225 psi range, AXEON HF5 Membrane Elements operate at a low applied pressure of 80 psi, resulting in more energy savings.
AXEON Residential Membrane Elements are recognized as some of the industry’s most reliable and highest performing membrane elements. Advanced manufacturing processes and the utilization of the industry’s leading film technology allow these elements to deliver consistent results in residential applications.
