Pure Aqua manufactured and supplied a Sea Water Reverse Osmosis system to a major company in the Philippines.
From its initial start-up, the system has been operating accordingly with minimal trouble-shooting. A SWRO system is designed and built to eliminate large quantities of salt and other impurities from water sources that are considered highly non-consumable like the sea. A high pressure pump is utilized to go against the osmotic pressure of a natural process called "Osmosis".
Osmosis naturally moves salt through a semi permeable membrane from a region with low saline concentration to a region with high saline concentration in order to achieve an equal quantity of saline concentration on both sides. To put a stop to this natural process, a technology called “reverse osmosis” is utilized to direct osmosis in the opposite direction. Before reverse osmosis is applied, seawater is moved through various pre-filters to remove particles and solids from the water. Then the water is guided into a water softener tank, removing the hardness, which can cause the membranes within the system to damage. After going through the water softener tank, the water goes into the actual SWRO system where it goes through semi-permeable membranes to take out particles that the pre-filters didn’t catch. The membranes only allow water molecules to go through while blocking salts, organics, and other impurities from passing on. At the end, purified water comes on the permeate side while salt, organics, and other impurities are dumped into a drain from the concentrate side.
