RO (Reverse Osmosis) Water Disinfection
RO Plants – small and large – often require reliable disinfection for 2 common applications:
- RO Feed Water Disinfection for Bacterial Fouling of Membranes: When water entering a RO plant is contaminated with microorganisms, some membranes tend to accumulate bacteria, algae and other microorganisms. The bacterial colonies grow on the membrane, feeding on the nutrients in RO feed water. Over time the bacterial fouling starts choking membrane pores and some bacterial escape into RO permeate.
- RO Permeate Disinfection: Though RO membranes have pore sizes smaller than typical sizes for bacteria, over time RO membranes and the supporting components like O rings start allowing bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms to escape into RO permeate. Even in new RO plants RO permeate needs to be often stored where it can pick up microbial contamination, making it unsafe for use.
Feed water disinfection with UV and RO permeate disinfection are popular and reliable ways to protect your RO plant from microbial contamination.
