One of the most important things to look for when determining the suitability of your water supply is to have a look at the “TDS” (Total Dissolved Solids) content of your water.
Total Dissolved Solids is the sum of all organic and inorganic material dissolved in your water supply. Leading waterjet manufacturers suggest that Reverse Osmosis water treatment is the best option for all situations where the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in the water supply exceeds 200 mg/litre.
High TDS and chloride promotes corrosion on wetted metal parts and silica contributes to scaling and erosion.
What is Reverse Osmosis?
Reverse Osmosis is a process which uses a membrane under pressure to separate pure water from a less pure solution. When two aqueous solutions of different concentrations are separated by a semi-permeable membrane, water passes through the membrane in the direction of the more concentrated solution as a result of osmotic pressure. In reverse osmosis, pressure is applied to the incoming water supply (concentrated solution) to overcome osmotic pressure. Thus the incoming supply is separated into two streams:
1) Rejected high TDS water solution and
2) High quality Purified “permeate” water. For many operations, pre treatment of water with a SOL series water softener is neccessary to remove minerals and hardness before feeding to the RO unit.
The V Tex effectively eliminates high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) which are highly detrimental to the life of key components of your waterjet.
V Tex SLE series brackish water RO units deliver pure water at up to 1000 litres per hour with high recovery rates and energy efficiency. The compact design of the V Tex SLE series enables delivery of pressurised water directly to the waterjet and eliminates the need for a separate holding tank.
Features of the V Tex RO System:
316 Stainless Steel Membrane Housings
Multi Stage Stainless steel high pressure pump
RO1 microprocessor controller with permeate conductivity monitor
Big twin pretreatment filter with carbon element, particulate elements and pressure differential guages.
