Reverse Osmosis (RO)
Reverse osmosis is a process that industry uses to clean water, whether for industrial process applications or to convert brackish water, to clean up wastewater or to recover salts from industrial processes. Reverse Osmosis can be very effective at removing dissolved solids.
RO MEMBRANE PROCESS
Reverse osmosis water filtration systems work by using high pressure to force water through a semi permeable reverse osmosis membrane element. RO membranes are made of a thick polyamide film that contains tiny pores through which water can flow. RO membrane element pore sizes can vary from 0.1 to 5,000 nanometers (nm) depending on application. The pores in the RO membrane are small enough to restrict organic compounds such as minerals and salt, but allow water molecules to pass through.
Sea Water RO (SWRO)
KMC Waters SWRO systems are available in different capacities to suit the requirements of our customers. These systems are designed to work efficiently and economically to produce high quality freshwater from seawater.
We fabricate SKID mounted as well as containerized SWRO Systems. We offer the latest energy saving reverse osmosis technology to ensure an economical supply of high-quality potable water from seawater, especially in the Middle East and Africa.
Brakish Water RO
Brackish water has moderate levels of dissolved minerals and salts. The presence of these impurities makes the water less desirable or unusable for many applications.
KMC BWRO systems offers reliability and robustness to meet the operational requirements of cogeneration plants, municipalities, the shipbuilding industry, electronic plants, resorts, and others.
An EDI plant is used after RO for polishing of demineralized water to obtain low levels of conductivity and Silica. EDI is an alternative to conventional mixed bed polisher.
Typical applications for EDI: Boiler feed water at heat and power plants, process water within the electronic industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and hospitals and laboratories.
EDI is a continuous process and utilizes chemical-free regeneration. Therefore, regeneration downtime is eliminated and storage and handling of acid and lye are avoided. The plants are space-saving on account of the very compact design. The plants are of high quality, need minimum maintenance, and the reliability of operation is very high
