HERO- High Efficiency Reverse Osmosis
HEROTM high efficiency reverse osmosis starts where conventional RO stops. HERO is a RO technology specifically designed to purify difficult-to-treat feed water. By effectively preventing constituents -that often pose problems to conventional RO process - from being a root cause to membrane fouling or scaling, the high efficiency reverse osmosis process offers the end user higher recoveries as well as significant operational benefits. The highly innovative HEROTM technology delivers unmatched value for the treatment in a variety of industrial water and wastewater applications.
How does HEROTM work?
HERO’s high pH operating environment overcomes the limitations of conventional RO systems. In a high efficiency reverse osmosis system, RO membranes are operated in high pH environment and hence, in a “continuous cleaning mode”, eliminating the potential foulants, and resulting in a substantially improved overall performance. Historically, successful operating installations as well as pilot testing have confirmed that a high pH environment is a “cleaning environment.” Most constituents that normally foul the membrane are rejected due to the high pH.
Benefits of HERO™ include:
- 90+% Recovery
- High Salt Rejection
- High Flux
- Reduced Fouling & reduced maintenance
- Lower Operating Costs
