Saltwater oceans contain 97% of the world’s surface water; without desalination systems, this water would remain undrinkable and unsuitable for domestic use. However, Aquarius S.A.L can help produce osmotised water.
Reverse osmosis is a technology that uses membrane separation; it is a very efficient process that removes most ionic, organic and suspended impurities from water.
The membranes, which are available in a variety of characteristics and sizes, are able to remove up to 98 % of substances present in the water. The semi-permeable membrane will allow only pure water to pass through it, while rejecting the contaminants and dissolved solids that are too large to pass through the tiny pores of the membranes. The treated water (product) will be collected, while the concentrated water will be rejected.
The applications for reverse osmosis are numerous and varied, and include desalination of seawater or brackish water for drinking purposes, semiconductors, food and beverage processing, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, power generation and industrial process water.
Aquarius S.A.L supplies customized reverse osmosis systems for its clients, depending on their requirements (proposed application, level of the TDS, etc). We have designed and installed more than 500 reverse osmosis plants throughout the region, with adequate pre and post-treatmentS adapted to each system.
