Buying a Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment System in Kenya

With the advancement of technology the popularity and growing demand for efficient and reliable water treatment and purification systems has seen various manufacturing companies scale up the design of water treatment systems to meet the global demands. There are two main types of water purification systems that have been adopted for domestic and commercial purposes namely Ultrafiltration UF and Reverse Osmosis RO.

Ultrafiltration (UF) is a pressure-driven barrier to suspended solids, bacteria, viruses, endotoxins and other pathogens to produce water with very high purity and low silt density.The application of this device is small domestic settings.

On the other hand, Reverse osmosis technology entails is a water purification process that uses a semi-permeable membrane (synthetic lining) to filter out unwanted molecules and large particles such as contaminants and sediments like chlorine, salt, and dirt from drinking water.

How does Reverse Osmosis work?

Reverse Osmosis works by using a high pressure pump to increase the pressure on the salt side of the RO and force the water across the semi-permeable RO membrane, leaving almost all (around 95% to 99%) of dissolved salts behind in the reject stream. The amount of pressure required depends on the salt concentration of the feed water. The more concentrated the feed water, the more pressure is required to overcome the osmotic pressure.

The desalinated water that is demineralized or deionized, is called permeate (or product) water. The water stream that carries the concentrated contaminants that did not pass through the RO membrane is called the reject (or concentrate) stream.

 

Maintenance of RO Water purifier systems

RO membranes will inevitably require periodic cleaning, anywhere from 1 to 4 times a year depending on the feed water quality. As a general rule, if the normalized pressure drop or the normalized salt passage has increased by 15%, then it is time to clean the RO membranes. If the normalized permeate flow has decreased by 15% then it is also time to clean the RO membranes. You can either clean the RO membranes in place or have them removed from the RO system and cleaned off site by a service company that specializes in this service. It has been proven that offsite membrane cleaning is more effective at providing a better cleaning than onsite cleaning skids.

RO membrane cleaning involves low and high pH cleaners to remove contaminants from the membrane. Scaling is addressed with low pH cleaners and organics, colloidal and biofouling are treated with a high pH cleaner. Cleaning RO membranes is not only about using the appropriate chemicals. There are many other factors involved such as flows, water temperature and quality, properly designed and sized cleaning skids and many other factors that an experienced service group must address in order to properly clean RO membranes.

Why Invest in the Water treatment and purification system

With global focus on the attainment of sustainable health, various initiatives have been directed towards provision of clean water as water and community health are greatly inter-linked. The demand for clean water for domestic and commercial use therefore, provides an opportunity for investment and the technology available makes this goal even more tenable.

With the right combination of resources and technical knowhow, a entrepreneur is able to move from establishment of the small or medium scale water purification business in any location upon ground research as the licensing and regulation of the water purification and packaging business has been simplified by local and national government regulation authorities thus making business entry less rigorous.
