Reverse Osmosis with TDS controller

Reverse Osmosis.

It is a water purification technology which uses semi-permeable membrane to remove ions, molecules, and larger particles from the drinking water.

In reverse osmosis process, the solvent moves from an area of high solute concentration, through a membrane, to an area of low solute concentration.

 

What is a TDS Controller?

It is a device which helps in controlling the TDS of water coming out of RO.

The RO process, reduces the hardness of the water by approximately 90%. That means for input of TDS 800, the output will be around 80.

Sometimes RO has itself low TDS value; that doesn’t mean the water is pure. So, to balance the TDS, the TDS controller are used to raise the TDS value of the output water.

 

Process:

The feed water of RO  get split into two parts:

PART 1 – The water goes into the membrane and the RO process. Output will be pure water of low TDS.

PART 2 – the water passes through the UV chamber. The output will be pure water but of the same TDS as of input water.

The output of the RO machine will be  PART1 + PART 2. The mixture is controlled through a valve, connected to PART 2, thus controlling the TDS.

 

If TDS of water is less than 400, then a TDS can help to give a better taste of water.

Features of Smart RO + TDS controller
  • Smart RO with TDS controller – The m/c has an extra feature to control the product water TDS to the desired level.
  • It consists of additional UF membranes beside a TDS controller; to provide high quality treated that controls the m/c operation to achieve the desired TDS .
  • Mineral cartridges are provided for retaining essential minerals in permeate water required for good health & immunity.
  • Flow meter has been provided at the outlet of permeate water to measure the quantity of water being treated.
  • Life of cartridge or membrane can be monitored through web monitoring.
  • Web monitoring of the working of RO system along with auto service call feature for calling in case any kind of servicing required.
  • Customized to handle variable TDS levels
  • MOC of structure is SS 304 which will give a long life of RO plant.
  • Water will be completely odorless & free from microorganisms & hardness.
