BIRMINGHAM — In the article, “Selling reverse osmosis to ‘green’ customers,” featured in a previous issue of Water Technology, we discuss how more consumers are turning to effective, sustainable solutions when it comes to reverse osmosis (RO).

In the article, we offer a few variables that can impact RO technology:

  • The quantity of permeate water produced
  • The quality of the water being treated
  • Pressure applied to water/flow rate
  • Water temperature
  • Recovery
  • Certain contaminants, such as specific pesticides, toluene, cyanide, chloroform and calcium
  • Total dissolved solids (TDS)
  • Hardness, typically above 12 gpg
  • Chlorine
  • High silica levels.
