A Commercial Reverse Osmosis (RO) System is a highly effective and preferred technology used by many businesses to purify water. You will find many different systems on the market so it can be overwhelming when trying to find one that meets your company’s exact requirements. If you are currently looking for an commercial RO system and want to know what reverse osmosis is, what to look for in a RO system and what questions you should be asking, then this quick guide is for you.

How do I know if my Business needs a Commercial RO system?

Reverse osmosis technology produces purified water, so it may be suitable for any business that needs high quality water for any reason.

There are many reasons why some businesses choose an RO system over other technologies. For example, water purified using a RO system may be used as "spot free" rinse water by carwashes, laboratories and pharmaceutical firms. For the food and beverage industries the purified water might be used in production of packaging materials or as an ingredient itself and for craft beer and commercial brewing companies, a brewery can take the incoming tap water they've got, strip it down with the RO system to almost pure water, and build it back up to their exact specifications - this is what we like to call a "blank canvas". For other manufacturing firms, the water may be used for cooling or cleaning products and equipment.

To achieve reverse osmosis in an commercial setting you need to buy a suitable reverse osmosis system. An RO system is an efficient water filtration system and is usually a self-contained unit. Using an RO system you can effectively remove many different pollutants, contaminants, impurities, salts, minerals and TDS from water (approximately 95%-99% of contaminants)

Basically, if you need water to be of a higher quality than your city's water supply, then a Business RO System might work for you. As there are many different RO systems to choose from, it is worth narrowing your search to other commercial water treatment technologies in addition to RO systems as they may better suit your requirements. For example, if you only require chlorine & chloramine removal a commercial carbon filter would be the best choice. Contact our design team for help on all your company's water needs.

Is pre-treatment of water necessary prior to the Commercial RO system?

If you are using a city treated or well water supply then it is highly likely that you will need to undertake some pre-treatment of the water before passing it through your RO system. RO membranes are sensitive to certain chemicals such a chlorine and chloramines and can cause damage to the RO membranes reducing their shelf-life and efficacy. Hard water scale can also cause the RO membrane to fail. Scaling most commonly refers to the formation of Calcium and Magnesium Sulfate, Carbonate and Bicarbonate salts which precipitate on concentration at the RO membrane. To prevent scaling you typically have two choices. You can either use ion exchange softening (water softener) or you can dose with an anti-scalent. Contact our design team for all your pre-treatment needs.

How do I compare different Commercial RO systems?

 For over 20 years RainDance Water Systems has been designing state-of-the-art water purification equipment for manufacturing, beverage businesses, craft beer breweries, restaurants, tea & coffee houses, legal marijuana & cannabis growers, livestock farms, aquaculture, horticulture, and agriculture. We utilize advanced reverse osmosis design software to ensure you get the optimum performance, recovery, and water quality you desire -

Before you purchase any reverse osmosis water filter for your business we recommend that you obtain a water quality test report for your water supply, which will help identify any issues that are essential to deal with and those you may wish to improve. If you have a water report please email us at Support@RainDanceWaterSystems.com Attn: Commercial RO - Or contact us about our FREE water testing.

Our low waste commercial reverse osmosis systems are manufactured using only the latest up to date integrated membranes solutions design software which includes expected recovery, waste water, permeate, concentrate water and operational pressure.   

Every commercial RO system includes a recirculation valve to increase the recovery to an incredible 50%-70% resulting in less waste water versus comparable systems without recirculation that only get 30-40% recovery. The needle pressure control valve on the RO controls vessel in pressure by sending brine flow back to the pump inlet as recirculation flow.  As an example, a 800gpd we recently production tested, when adjusted for 150 psi vessel in pressure, was making 1080 GPD product flow and 750 GPD drain flow.  That is a 59% recovery. The pump at that pressure is putting out 3312 GPD. If you subtract the product and drain flows you get 1482 GPD or about 1 GPM recirculation flow and the extra velocity of feed plus recirculation flow is what keeps the membrane alive longer.
