Efficient Management of Reverse Osmosis System in Water Treatment Plant

Author(s): Brajesh K. Shrivastava

Reverse osmosis system has emerged as most efficient treatment system worldwide for treating water of high conductivity. Reverse osmosis is a multipurpose system, which is used to remove dissolved solids, heavy metals and bacteria and viruses. Due to the lack of implementation of a number of factors, performance of reverse osmosis system is severely affected leading to frequent breakdown, unsatisfactory treatment of feedwater and wastage of resources. This paper undertakes a study to find out the best possible steps for efficient reverse osmosis management in water treatment process. It was found that the life of membranes in reverse osmosis can be extended and satisfactory treatment of feedwater can be done leading to cost-effectiveness in operation .
