There are many processes that require extremely high purity water, that is not only free of particulates, but has all dissolved matter removed from it. Examples of this range from the pharmaceutical industry, to industrial air conditioning and from production engineering to commercial catering. Typically high purity waters are demanded for laboratory use, many humidification systems and steam boiler feed systems. Hydrotec produce these high quality waters using the process of reverse osmosis through our HydroMOS® range of equipment. The smaller of our HydroMOS® systems is shown in the picture below.
Osmosis is a natural process, occurring frequently in nature and is the process or force that drives water to move from a lower salt concentration solution to a higher salt concentration solution, when they are separated by a semi-permeable membrane. In other words water molecules will move through a membrane (often the skin of an animal or plant) to try to equalise the salt concentrations on either side of it. In reverse osmosis we reverse this process, by applying pressure to one side of the semi-permeable membrane we can cause water to flow from the higher concentration solution to the lower one. By careful selection of the membrane it is possible to produce extremely pure waters by this technique.
