Reverse osmosis is a way to get small particles out of water by forcing it through a filter (a membrane). The particles in the water are left on the other side of the sheet, while the water travels through it. This is best known as a process used for purifying salt water, but it can also be used to purify other substances.

This system shall be capable for removal of total dissolved by the principle of “Reverse Osmosis” at the Salt rejection rate of 95 – 99%. Necessary control valves are to be provided with required instrumentation for operating & performing parameters. Pressure gauges are to be provided for pressure indication and control of complete R.O. System. An online / by pass type of flow indicator at product & brine pipe work are to be provided for controlling desired flow rate & recovery. For monitoring product water quality an online conductivity indicator is to be provided.
