REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM WALL MOUNTED
- “The Ultimate” in water purification, using the latest technology to produce nearly 100% pure water.
- Removes a wide range of inorganic contaminants and potentially harmful chemicals and metals, many of which cannot be removed by simple methods.
- Reverse Osmosis systems are for those who demand only the purest drinking water for themselves and their families.
- Wall mounted unit.
The wall mounted reverse osmosis system is most commonly installed in the laundry. They do not have to be plumbed-in, which means they are a good option for people who are renting or travelling. This type of system is also ideal for fish breeding and other commercial applications and they can be fitted with higher volume membranes if required.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Osmosis is a natural process which occurs when two solutions of different concentrations are separated by a semi-permeable membrane, and the lower concentration solution passes through the membrane to the more concentrated solution (e.g. oxygen passes from lungs to blood stream, and plants roots take up nutrients).
REVERSE OSMOSIS uses this process in reverse. Water containing impurities is forced against a synthetic membrane (or semi-permeable membrane). Water molecules pass through the membrane leaving dissolved impurities on the surface. The membrane also acts as an “ultra filter” to mechanically remove particle matter down to its pore size of approximately 0.0005 microns (1 micron = 1 thousandth of a millimeter).
All pollutants are flushed from the membrane, thus ensuring the membrane does not saturate as with other filtration methods. Unlike distillation, which produces “dead” water, the RO membrane has a strong affinity to oxygen producing “lively” oxygenated water.
Mains water pressure of more than 50 p.s.i. is all that is required for this remarkable process to work.
REVERSE OSMOSIS is the latest “state-of-the-art” (and most effective) water purification process.
