Stages of domestic reverse osmosis water purifier.
The reverse osmosis water purifier has 5 stages, which are defined as:
1 STAGE – 5 micron pre-filtration for sediment, mechanical reduction of rust and particulates, and provides membrane protection.
2 STAGE – pre-treatment filter with granular activated carbon.
3 STAGE – Block activated carbon cartridge for the reduction of tastes, odors, chlorine, and organic impurities.
4 STAGE – Thin film composite reverse osmosis membrane for the reduction of dissolved solids, including the range of toxic heavy metals, in addition to Giardia and Cryptosporidium cysts.
5 STAGE – In-line activated carbon post-cartridge for final polishing of bad tastes and odors.
Maintenance: Pre and post filters recommended to be changed every 8 to 12 months during regular use.
RO Reverse Osmosis Membrane: Replacement is recommended based on periodic TDS rejection tests every two years.
The Reverse Osmosis home purification system, from 50 to 100 gallons per day (24 hrs).
Equipment to be placed under the sink
Purifier dimensions: 44 cm H x 38 cm H x 16 cm D.
Tank dimensions: 30 cm diameter x 42 cm.
The reverse osmosis water purifier retains suspended particles larger than 5 microns (solids, amoebae, etc.) Removes organic contaminants, including those that give taste, odor and color.
Among the main groups of contaminants are pesticides, detergents, hydrocarbons, fats and oils. In addition, it eliminates free chlorine and prevents the development of microorganisms in the cartridge (bacteria).
Cartridge life time: 8 to 12 months.
