Reverse osmosis (RO) is not a new technology. It was originally pioneered in the 1700s, and many of the techniques used today were perfected in the 1950s. RO cleans and filters water by using a semipermeable membrane to remove ions, molecules and large particles from water. The rate of passage through the membrane is determined by the pressure, concentration and temperature of the molecules or solutes on either side. RO does not just remove salt from water, it also filters and removes many types of dissolved and suspended species from water, including bacteria.
LMI metering pumps are designed specifically for reverse osmosis water treatment applications by offering multiple liquid-end materials – such as polypropylene (PP), polyvinlidene fluoride (PVDF) and 316L stainless steel – to address different RO application requirements.
