Here at Western RO, we have a good understanding of water filtration systems and the reasons to use them. We pride ourselves on being a resource to help clients understand their needs. Sometimes, we need commercial filtration in place to help clean waste water. Sometimes it is a simple residential solution to create clean drinking water. We take a holistic approach to solving the problem for every client.
The reasons for needing filtration systems can range. Depending on the end goal there are different ways to achieve it. Filtrations systems have been in place for centuries, but the technology that is driving the industry forward is light years ahead of where it started. From purifying water over the fire to today’s industrial systems that can help keep entire cities healthy and safe, filtrations has progressed.
Depending on your need there are several types of filtration systems that can help you reach your goal. We prefer Reverse Osmosis membranes in most cases because of their efficiency. While it may seem like water filtration systems are hard to wrap your head around, it is actually a very simple. Also, an effective way to separate contaminates from your water.
Reverse Osmosis can create safe and clean water that is perfect for cooking, cleaning, and drinking. Clean water is highly important in today’s world. With water sources being polluted by fracking waste, lead pipes, and oil spills, it is a critical time to find good water filtration solutions. Access to clean water can make all of the difference in a person’s health and quality of life.
Take the Flint Michigan crisis, the levels of lead in the water were so high that children (and adults) were suffering from exposure. Ingesting larger quantities of lead can increase aggression and slow mental development. Children and elderly adults are most at risk, but it is also important for adults and caregivers to be in good health.
That is why we suggest Reverse Osmosis systems in a lot of cases. The system works by applying pressure to a solution with a high concentration of containments, such as contaminated water. The pressure causes the solvent to pass through the semi-permeable membrane to a lower concentration solution. This leaves a higher concentration on one side and a purer solvent on the other.
This method allows for chemicals, waste, and toxins to be trapped in the semi-permeable membrane. The solvent or water that is pushed through, arrives on the other side in a state that is usable or drinkable. Thus creating a safe source for those in need.
The process of Reverse Osmosis was created in the 1950’s as an attempt to combat the growing water crisis. Back then they were focused on desalinating water to create more usable water sources. The process has continued to improve with technology and creation of cellular acetate membranes help speed up the process. The advancements also helped reduce the amount of wastewater caused by the filtration system.
These technologies are small steps in the right direction to help combat the continued crisis when it comes to clean water. As always we are dedicated to helping those in need of quality water filtration systems. If you have any questions about water filtration systems please do not hesitate to contact us!
