From drinking water filtration systems to water softening solutions, there are plenty of water treatment options available to health-conscious and budget-minded homeowners and business owners. Reverse osmosis is among the most cost-effective of these options. If you’re looking to improve the taste, quality and washing power of your water, consider using this process to your advantage.
Where Are Reverse Osmosis Systems Used?
Reverse osmosis is an affordable, increasingly common process that can dramatically improve everyday water quality. It’s used by residential and commercial clients to handle a variety of applications, including:
- Agriculture and aquaculture
- Car and truck washing
- Restaurants and hotel water systems
- High-tech manufacturing applications
- Chemical processing and distilling
- Private and commercial laundry
- Hospital and healthcare functions
- Specialized coating and plating applications
Of course, clear, crisp-tasting water that has been treated by reverse osmosis can be used for the most simple purpose of all: personal hydration.
Features and Specifications
Hellenbrand’s HRO 6 Series Reverse Osmosis Systems are among the most popular systems on the market today. Their key features include:
- Capacities of between 1,500 to 10,000 gallons per day
- LED displays
- Tank level input with low pressure alarm
- 5 micron filters for pre-treatment sediment filtration
- Stainless steel booster pump and low pressure switch to enhance flow
- Fiberglass membrane housing
Since these are complicated pieces of equipment, Hellenbrand maintains a dedicated, highly experienced internal support staff and provides ongoing training to its authorized dealers. This ensures that any problems users might experience don’t jeopardize the system’s overall effectiveness or shorten its lifespan.
Is the Water Really Better?
For anyone who uses a reverse osmosis device, one concern trumps all others: the quality of the treated water. On this point, it’s clear that treated water is safer and cleaner than regular tap water. Contaminants that can be removed via reverse osmosis include:
- Organic chemicals, including agricultural fertilizers
- Excessive sodium
- Nitrates and other nitrogen byproducts
For companies that need filtered water to wash, sanitize or manufacture certain items, treating water by reverse osmosis may be a critical business decision. Although it’s important to note that this process doesn’t remove every single non-water molecule from treated fluid, it creates a functionally pure substance that can be used far more safely and widely than non-treated water.
