|WHAT IS REVERSE OSMOSIS?|
process, commonly known as RO, is also known as hyper-filtration or
ultra-filtration. It is the finest filtration method known which allows the
removal of particles as small as ions from a solution. Reverse Osmosis was
developed in the late 1950's under U.S. Government funding, as a method of
desalinating sea water. Today, Reverse Osmosis has earned its name as the
most convenient and thorough method for water filtration. Besides
removing salt and impurities from water, reverse osmosis can also be used to
purify fluids such as ethanol and glycol.
This advanced technology of water purification is now available to homes and offices for drinking water filtration.
