The Effects of Water Conditions on Reverse Osmosis Treatment . . .
Excerpted from Don't Expect RO Miracles, Professional Carwashing & Detailing Magazine, May, 2002
"Getting the best performance from your RO system may depend upon feedwater conditions. ...
[systems] such as RO are good alternatives to traditional filtration and chemical treatment for carwashes and other applications. Pre-treating feedwater can lengthen the life of membrane elements, improve the quality of water produced, and reduce the amount of maintenance and cleaning that a system requires. ...
Membrane fouling occurs when materials from the feed stream collect on or near the membrane surface and restrict water permeation. ...
For RO systems, steps must be taken to ensure that solubility limits of scale-forming constituents are not exceeded."

There is little or no need to introduce sodium from softeners or chemicals from other treatment methods when the safe, cost-effective alternative is non-chemical TWT Deposit Control. TWT Deposit Control enhances the operation of your RO systems by helping to keep the membranes clear in ways that bring positive solutions rather than additional problems.
