FAQ on RO Plants
Q1. Will R.O. remove Sodium from the water?
Ans: Most definitely, yes! RO or reverse osmosis was made for the navy so that seawater can be made drinkable. So everyone on a low sodium diet can use RO without any worries.
Q2. What is the RO membrane, and how does it work?
Ans: In an RO membrane, there are many sheets or layers of a film that are bonded together and then rolled in a spiral configuration around a plastic tube. This whole thing is also known as the TFC membrane or Thin Film Composite. The material has pores of size 0.0001 micron, and it is semi-permeable. Hence, it allows water molecules to pass through as it acts as a barrier for insoluble impurities. The water molecules pass along the surface of the membrane and penetrate through it and get collected in the center tube. The contaminants are then washed and removed.
Q3. How does Reverse Osmosis differ from a Water Filter?
Ans: Reverse Osmosis differs from ordinary filters, mainly on the grounds of filtering percentage. Ordinary filters remove only insoluble dirt and particles, whereas RO has a semi-permeable membrane that removes the insoluble dirt but as well as dissolved contaminants.
