The Process of Reverse Osmosis

Osmosis is a natural process. When two liquids with differing concentrations of a solute are separated by a semi-permeable membrane, the liquid tends to move from low to high solute concentrations to reach equilibrium.

Reverse osmosis is a process whereby a solvent of high solute concentration is forced through a semi-permeable membrane to an area of low solute concentration by applying pressure. The feed water pressure must exceed the osmotic pressure in order for the process to work.  Thus, low pressure systems work with more dilute solutions, but highly concentrated solutions (such as sea water desalination) require greater pressures to work.  The fact of the matter is that reverse osmosis is the most economical technology to purify water to extremely high quality standards. 

What Makes Up a Complete Reverse Osmosis System?

A typical reverse osmosis system is much more than just to “RO Component.”  A complete Reverse Osmosis System generally includes several other components, such as:

  • Pre-Treatment – this includes carbon filters to remove chlorine, iron, manganese and sulfur filters, water softeners or ant-scalant systems.
  • Storage and Distribution – RO systems make water slowly, so a tank is required.  There are two (2) types of tanks – atmospheric and bladder types.  Atmospheric types are typically bigger and since there is no bladder to supply back-pressure, the water quality is higher in an atmospheric tank verses a bladder tank.  Smaller systems (generally under 1, 000 gpd often use bladder tanks from 14 to 80 gallons, while larger volume systems use atmospheric tanks from 75 gallons to 2, 000 gallons.  When using an atmospheric tank a booster pump must be utilized to re-pressure the water and distribute it.
  • Post-Treatment – this includes ultraviolet disinfection (UV) or ozonation to kill bacteria, pH adjustment to raise the pH or add some hardness back to the water and/or deionization to totally demineralize the water.
  • Instrumentation – monitoring the end water quality is often desirable, so a number of instruments and analyzers are available to facilitate that.

Alkaline Water R.O. Systems

Most of the popular alkaline water ionizers sold today use electrolysis technology to separate the water

You may have heard various health claims about alkaline water. Some say it can help slow the aging process, regulate your body’s pH level, and prevent chronic diseases like cancer. But what exactly is alkaline water, and why all the hype?

The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. The pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14. For example, something with a pH of 1 would be very acidic and something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline.

Alkaline water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Because of this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body.

Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8 or 9. However, pH alone isn’t enough to impart substantial alkalinity to water.

Alkaline water must also contain alkaline minerals and negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP). ORP is the ability of water to act as a pro- or antioxidant. The more negative the ORP value, the more antioxidizing it is.

Does it really work?

Alkaline water is somewhat controversial. Many health professionals say there isn’t enough research to support the many health claims made by users and sellers. Differences in research findings may be related to the types of alkaline water studies.

According to the Mayo Clinic, regular water is best for most people. They state that there is no scientific evidence that fully verifies the claims made by supporters of alkaline water.

However, there are a few studies that suggest alkaline water might be helpful for certain conditions.

For example, a 2012 studyTrusted Source found that drinking naturally carbonated artesian-well alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help deactivate pepsin, the main enzyme that causes acid reflux.

Another study suggested that drinking alkaline ionized water may have benefits for people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.

A more recent study that included 100 people found a significant difference in whole blood viscosity after consuming high-pH water compared to regular water after a strenuous workout. Viscosity is the direct measurement of how efficiently blood flows through the vessels.

Those who consumed high-pH water reduced viscosity by 6.3 percent compared to 3.36 percent with standard purified drinking water. This means blood flowed more efficiently with alkaline water. This can increase oxygen delivery throughout out the body.

However, more research is needed beyond these small studies. In particular, research is needed to answer other claims made by alkaline water supporters.

Despite the lack of proven scientific research, proponents of alkaline water still believe in its proposed health benefits. These include:

  • anti-aging properties (via liquid antioxidants that absorb more quickly into the human body)
  • colon-cleansing properties
  • immune system support
  • hydration, skin health, and other detoxifying properties
  • weight loss
  • cancer resistance

They also argue that soft drinks, which are notoriously acidic, have very positive ORPs leading to many health problems, while properly ionized and alkalinized waters have highly negative ORPs. Green tea is rich in antioxidants and has a slightly negative ORP.
