How Reverse Osmosis Works

From Design to Cleaning

How Reverse Osmosis Works

Reverse osmosis (RO) produces high-purity water for use in many applications, including low and high pressure boilers, manufacturing processes, cleaning, and ultrapure water systems.  RO offers numerous benefits that can save water, fuel, operating costs, labor, and more.  Understanding how it works will help in the selection, maintenance, and operation of RO systems.

Why Water Needs to be Treated

Water Treatment consists of three crucial factors: Service, Chemistry and Equipment. It is an important part of the preventative maintenance program for boiler, cooling, and process water systems. With the right partner, you can ensure to have a reliable and well-working system that will minimize cost, maximize efficiency and provide sustainable solutions.

Understanding Cycles of Concentration

Evaporative systems are more complex to treat than closed systems. Why? It’s because the solid impurities become increasingly concentrated in the system water during the normal course of operation. Makeup impurities do not typically concentrate in closed systems. In evaporative systems, large quantities of water are used on an ongoing basis. Economics dictate the use of chemicals that can be applied at low dosages. Closed systems normally use only the amount of water required to fill the system one time and any water losses from leaks and repairs.

Your Dirty AC Coils Could Be Costing You Big Time

Air conditioning (AC) systems that do not function properly can be cumbersome. Properly maintaining these units is critical––especially the coils, whether they are in an air handling unit or a packaged air conditioning unit. These delicate coils require regular upkeep to preserve the life of the AC unit, maintain capacity, improve energy efficiency, and ensure the indoor air quality is at its best.

The Effects of Carryover in Steam Boiler Systems

Carryover is any contaminant that leaves the boiler with steam. It can be in a solid, liquid, or vapor form. The most common form of carryover is boiler water droplets that contain dissolved and suspended solids.

Boiler water carryover can cause deposits to form in valves, heat exchangers, turbines, and superheaters. If deposits are significant, heat transfer and/or turbine efficiency may be reduced. Additionally, carryover can strip away the protective magnetic layer on steam lines, remove the film formed by filming amine programs, cause erosion-induced corrosion, and result in product quality problems in processes using live steam.
