Reverse osmosis is a process that our bodies use to separate different chemicals from the blood and other mediums. The phenomena of reverse osmosis in the filtered water solutions industry is used to separate salt from the water in am attempt to make it drinkable. A thin membrane is used in this process.
When the water passes through this system. Any type is toxins and waste products in the water is separated from it by the help of the member, thus the water becomes fresh, and free of any bad taste and smell. But a membrane is not the only part of an RO system, there are a lot of other components too that make this incredible phenomena possible to happen, in this article, we’ll take a look at the parts that come before the main membrane section.
Valve is one of the first components to get in touch with the polluted water. It is a simple inlet valve and it works by allowing the water into the RO system only when allowed by you. So, when the valve opens, the water gets into the RO system by passing through the supply lines.
Backflow Prevention Valve
The only valve connecting the RO system and the main water source/ tank is the inlet valve, but since all of this system is pressure operated, there is a high chance that the water might backflow from the RO system to damage the inlet v valve. That is why a backflow prevention valve is used in the system to prevent any backflow of the water from the RO system.
The Pre-Filter Region
The pre filter region is a very important part of the RO system that comes right before the main membrane section. This section is specifically designed to separate large particles from the water. This way, the water is ready to go into the main membrane system to be filtered properly.
