Reverse Osmosis is a modern water treatment technology based on special semi-permeable membranes through which water can pass but not dissolved substances.
Therefore, the process results in a Permeated substance which is deionised (free from salt) water, obtained from saline water. Water which does not go through the membrane flows along the inner wall, removing salts as they are deposited before being discharged: this water is called Concentrate.
The volume of Permeate produced by the Osmosis process is normally 60-75% of total inlet water and depends on salinity and concentration characteristics of the latter.
The remaining part, the Concentrate, is considerably more saline than inlet water because it contains all the salts and pollutants separated by the membrane.
Based on the type of water requiring treatment (tap water, well water, industrial process water) and desired permeate quality, ITALPLANT uses composite membranes in high quality polyamides, with different technical characteristics which enable the production of a permeate with purity degrees of 3 ÷ 30 microsiemens.
Our plants are available from 90 litres/hour and up to 10,000 litres/hour and more flow rates. They are equipped with Antiscalant dosing and Sanitisation systems, useful for consistent membrane performance and maintenance over time.
They are built on stainless steel skids and all machine functions are managed by PLCs which are programmable and visible on a large touch screen panel.
Systems are supplied complete with a tank for the collection of desalinated water produced, flushing systems and preparation tank for chemical solutions used for membrane rinsing.
