Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis Systems
Reverse Osmosis is the process of removing dissolved elements from your water. For example, if you have a cup of water. Each time you add a teaspoon of sugar, The TDS will increase. So, the more sugar you add, the higher your TDS will be. A filter system will not remove the sugar that’s dissolved in the water. The only way to remove what’s dissolved in the water is to put it through a reverse osmosis system.
Reverse Osmosis is a technology that is used to remove a large majority of dissolved contaminants from water by pushing the water under pressure through a semi-permeable membrane. So if you have to put sweet water through the reverse osmosis system, you will have 2 outputs. Your pure water will have no taste (permeate), and the water will be sweeter (concentrate)
RO units are used all over the world in many regions where clean water is scarce. It is ideal for food and beverage industries, drinking water, water bottling & ice-making, and more. No matter your water application needs, Puritech can provide you with industry-standard or custom-designed RO machines.
Reverse Osmosis Systems from Puritech deliver high performance at low life-cycle costs, saving on energy and increasing proficiency. Our systems arrive at your facility ready to be installed with all filters, membranes, pumps, piping, and controls.
Reverse osmosis Systems produce freshwater needed for many industrial water treatment applications such as power and energy plants, refineries, boiler feed treatment, etc. Industrial Reverse Osmosis systems are vital for the consistent productivity in these industries due to the corrosive-related issues occurring within the facilities, specifically the equipment and machinery.
What is Brackish Water
Brackish water, also sometimes termed brack water, is water occurring in a natural environment having more salinity than freshwater, but not as much as seawater. It may result from mixing seawater (saltwater) with freshwater together, as in estuaries, or it may occur in brackish fossil aquifers. The word comes from the Middle Dutch root “brak”. Certain human activities can produce brackish water, in particular civil engineering projects such as dikes and the flooding of coastal marshland to produce brackish water pools for freshwater prawn farming. Brackish water is also the primary waste product of the salinity gradient power process. Because brackish water is hostile to the growth of most terrestrial plant species, without appropriate management it is damaging to the environment.
Brackish water consists of more total dissolved solids than tap water, but has lower salinity than seawater, and usually arises from underground water sources. Impurities in the water make it difficult to use in many applications.
