Anti-Scale Water Filtration Systems

The Problem:

This temperature and pressure relief valve is clogged with hard scale.

Large deposits of hard scale constrict water flow in this hotel plumbing system.

Scale deposits pipes, plumbing fixtures, or heating elements can cause:

  • Reduced system efficiency & higher energy costs
  • Restricted flow rates & pressure loss
  • Expensive repairs to appliances & heating devices
  • Bacteria growth & potential health concerns for drinking water

The Solution: ClearFlow® Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System

Your new Reverse Osmosis (R.O.) Drinking Water System uses a combination of filtration technologies to reduce unwanted contaminants in a water supply. The following steps combine to give you the best in clear sparkling drinking water:

Mechanical Filtration:

The Sediment Prefilter has been designed to reduce the larger particles such as silt, rust and scale. Its 5 micron (equal to 0.0002 inch) nominal rating helps to give maximum life to the R.O. Membrane.

Activated Carbon:

The Activated Carbon Prefilter contains carbon particles with a vast network of pores. The tremendous surface area of these pores (typically 800–1200 square meters per gram of carbon) gives the carbon very good adsorptive sites for substances that contribute to tastes and odors. The activated carbon in the Prefilter has been designed to reduce any chlorine that may be present in the feed water. This pretreatment is also necessary for membrane protection.

Reverse Osmosis Membrane:

The R.O. Membrane is the heart of the filtration system. It is designed to reduce the dissolved mineral content of the water. Minerals picked up in the environment by the water are
measured as Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). In the Reverse Osmosis process, dissolved minerals are separated from the incoming water (Feed Water) to produce the product water (the Permeate). The excess minerals are rinsed to drain (the Reject Water). The membrane is a specially constructed, fully aromatic polyamide film, and is classified as a Thin Film
Composite (T.F.C.). The spiral wound construction of the R.O. Membrane provides maximum surface area for water production and is less susceptible to fouling by particulate matter, turbidity and colloidal materials.

In-Line Activated Carbon Post Filter:

The In–Line Activated Carbon Post Filter is located after the Holding Tank and has been designed to reduce the tastes and odors that may pass through the system. It adds
a final polish to the water.

Automatic Shut-Off Valve:

The ASO Valve senses when the Holding Tank is full and closes the feed water supply to prevent excess reject water from going to drain when the unit is not producing water.
