Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a technology for water purification using semipermeable membrane. Reverse Osmosis removes dissolved salts, ions, colloids, organics, bacteria and pyrogens from the water. Reverse osmosis is a technology used to remove large amount of contaminants from water by pushing water under pressure with the help of semi-permeable membrane.
- Reverse osmosis often used in water filteration and also used in commercial.
- Also used to desalinate seawater.
- Also used to purify liquids in which water in undesirable impurity.
- Used in industrial application where demineralized and deionized water is needed.
