Reverse osmosis

Home > Screening > Water treatment > Reverse osmosis
Reverse osmosis is the way to desalinate water and purify it of unwanted elements. In horticulture, this technique is widely used to convert well water into high-quality irrigation water with low EC and low sodium. This is essential for the optimal growth of your crops and allows you to circulate longer before you need to drain.

Extension of your installations

Reverse osmosis is also used to extend the life of your installations. Think, for example, of filtering supply water from boilers and high-pressure mist systems. The pure water obtained after reverse osmosis contains no dissolved elements that can cause problems, such as limestone formation. As a result, it can also be used to provide spot-free rinsing of products such as cars and windows.

How does reverse osmosis work?

Reverse osmosis works by using the membrane as an extremely fine filter. This filters dissolved substances from the water. The pure water remaining on the other side of the membrane can be reused as irrigation water. Thanks to cross-flows, the membrane is regularly flushed clean, preventing clogging.

How does the RO system work?

Our RO systems are equipped with spiral-wound membranes installed in GRP pressure vessels. The osmosis water is continuously monitored for quality by measuring electrical conductivity (EC). If the product water exceeds a freely adjustable EC value, the system will automatically go into alarm and be stopped. The RO system is further equipped with all relevant gauges for pressure, flow and other parameters to monitor the process.
