Water Purification Experts Explain Reverse Osmosis Systems, Clifton Park, New York

While everybody cares about how clean their water is, few understand the different processes water goes through to reach that ideal purified state. One such process is called reverse osmosis. AquaScience, based in Clifton Park and Hyde Park, New York, explains how reverse osmosis systems use this filtering process to bring you purified water. 

What Is a Reverse Osmosis System & Why Is It Important?

Osmosiswater treatment

The regular osmosis process is a frequently occurring event in nature in which a liquid with a lower saline concentration, usually water, will migrate toward a liquid with a higher concentration of saline. The phenomenon happens in everything from plants absorbing water from soil to kidneys absorbing water from our blood. 

Reverse Osmosis

 The process used to purify water through reverse osmosis systems is the reverse of the one that occurs naturally among plants and animals. During reverse osmosis, water travels through a semipermeable membrane that only allows water molecules to pass through. This membrane filters out contaminants like bacteria and pyrogens. The demineralized, deionized water that passes through the membrane is called permeate water. 

Highly Effective Decontaminant

Reverse osmosis is one of the most efficient ways of removing contaminants from drinking water. The process generally takes out 99 percent of dissolved salts, particles, bacteria, and pyrogens, leaving your water clean and pure.
