The RO unit itself will be designed and manufactured at our premise here in Sydney, Australia. We have a team of trained technicians who build, test, commission and maintain our RO plant nationally. We find this level of cross training highly effective at ensuring that our RO systems provide the highest levels of reliability and that any potential issues are identified early and resolved quickly.
All our skid mounted Reverse Osmosis systems feature:
- All stainless steel frames and wetted parts
- Quality label components such as Berkert, Grundfos, Lowara & Georg Fischer
- Skilled local assembly to Australia Standards
- Innovative designs that minimise floor space while maintaining ease of service
What is Reverse Osmosis?
Our skid mounted RO plant utilise either 2.5”, 4.0” or 8.0” Filmtec or Hydranautics reverse osmosis membranes suitable for the application and we carry a full range of spares and consumables on site to ensure you’re never caught without water when you need it most.
Our RO plant are designed to maximise water efficiency and minimise waste. The recovery rate, that is the ratio of feedwater recovered as product can be as high as 80-85%. However this can drop down depending on the nature of the feed water. Too much salinity or silica amongst other things in the feed water will limit the recovery rate of the unit. Once we have the water analysis of your feed water we will be able to provide you with an accurate estimation of the final Reverse Osmosis system water recovery.
A typical RO skid will include only the components of the RO unit, whilst both the Pre and Post treatment elements will be separate, floor or wall mounted components that are plumbed together on site. This approach reduces the cost of the actual skid as the frame does not have to be as large. It is also easier for installing systems into pre-existing infrastructure as the individual components are easier to get through door ways.
In some cases however clients may be interested in having all the RO system components mounted and plumbed onto a single skid such as this duty standby unit. This has the advantage of a simpler installation as the unit is dropped on site, the water and power are connected and it is ready for operation. Having everything mounted onto a single skid greatly reduces the onsite time of technicians which can often offset the increased cost of the system.
