Maintain Your Reverse Osmosis Filtration System: Maintenance & Preventive Cleaning

Reverse osmosis filtration systems are prone to fouling from metal oxides, organic material, biological matter, and calcium precipitates. This fouling can take the form of a biofilm on the internal surfaces of the system, scaling, precipitate buildup, or even contamination of the product water. Fouling can lead to declining performance, affect the permeate flow rate, more…

Basics of Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration: About RO Membranes

Reverse osmosis systems center around membrane technology, which allows water purification systems to remove dissolved and suspended solids from the water without the use of chemical additives, and with a low energy cost. Specifically, RO systems use semipermeable membranes, which allow water molecules to flow freely while catching molecules that are too large to pass more…

Desalination

Basics of Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration: Desalination Technologies and Filtration Processes

Seawater and brackish water processing are two major applications of reverse osmosis and nanofiltration systems, allowing businesses that operate near a highly saline water source to access pure water for the purposes of food processing, pharmaceuticals, and more. While all RO systems perform desalination to some degree, high-volume desalination requires a system that’s dedicated to more…

How to Keep a Reverse Osmosis Daily Log Record

Maintaining a reverse osmosis system demands having a high-quality record on hand, detailing information such as daily inspections, routine testing, raw water quality, and more. At first glance, keeping a daily log record might seem like too much extra work, but for the sake of the reverse osmosis system’s continuing health and efficiency, it’s worth more…

AXEON Offers All-Purpose & Industry-Specific Water Systems

Having pure, clean, usable water is a concern for both residential and commercial customers. Even if you don’t need to drink the water, you still need it to be free of toxins and contaminants. These contaminants not only affect the taste and odor of the water, but also its functionality in manufacturing and agricultural settings. more…

AXEON Introduces Nanofiltration Water Systems for Industry Use

Relatively new compared to traditional reverse osmosis and other water purification methods, nanofiltration water systems use pressure to produce pure water for industry use. In general, NF produces as much filtered water as reverse osmosis (RO) systems at 50-70% of the pressure. NF systems also typically allow more salt to pass through than reverse osmosis more…

AXEON Offers Clean In-Place Systems for RO Water Purification

Cleaning out the interior surfaces of pipes, membranes, and other inner workings of industrial equipment used to involve disassembling the equipment and manually cleaning it. Needless to say, this process was arduous and time-consuming. Fortunately, Clean-In-Place (CIP) systems now do the dirty work by cleaning equipment with an automated process that includes no disassembly. RO more…

brackish RO systems

AXEON Introduces Brackish RO Systems for Industrial Use

Brackish water is a unique challenge when it comes to water purification, requiring a specific approach for any industrial use. Brackish water contains levels of dissolved solids between that of saltwater and freshwater, and in RO filtration, it requires its own specific pressure level for efficient operation. It is unsuitable for drinking or most commercial more…
