AXEON Water Technologies Discusses the Importance of the RO Membrane

In the process of reverse osmosis water filtration, having a quality RO membrane is essential. The RO membrane is the part of a reverse osmosis system crucial to successful water purification, since it is responsible for filtering pollutants such as industrial waste, debris, agricultural chemicals, dissolved mineral salts, protozoan bacteria, and parasites, among others.

The membrane of a reverse osmosis system traps all the particles and compounds forced inside the machine. The component is cylindrical in shape to make it easier to check for structural faults and damage. It usually ranges from 1.8 to 4.0 inches in diameter and length, with pores measuring between 0.0005 and 0.005 microns in diameter (which is the ideal size for trapping common particles in water).

Reverse osmosis membranes are also interchangeable, since they are specifically designed to facilitate easier swapping. This modularity helps users adapt their RO systems to various settings, since the membranes are dependent on the type of water and the specific use of the purified water. It should be noted that a membrane that does not match the water type and the intended use can lead to clogs and other kinds of damage, which in turn causes inefficiencies in filtration and purification.

A master-grade reverse osmosis system, such as one that we offer here at AXEON Water Technologies, comes equipped with a specific membrane that is most suited for the machine’s planned use; this is to guarantee a prolonged service lifespan for the device.

Another component that we offer to protect the reverse osmosis membrane is the RO membrane housing. The housing is designed to be durable enough to withstand the stresses that a machine is expected to face, ensuring a system’s efficiency and operability in the long run. Available variants of membrane housing measure 2.5 to 4 inches in diameter and 14 to 200 inches long.

Here at AXEON Water Technologies, we deliver quality reverse osmosis systems and solutions for your water purification needs. We offer a wide range of RO systems for commercial and industrial use, as well as machines designed for residential and community water services. Clients can rest assured that we continually improve our performance and our technology as part of our dedication to provide clean and safe water for everyone.
