Reverse Osmosis, Minimization of Soluble Impurities of Ground Water


Groundwater dissolves much of the impurities that it percolates through. Generally it is harder than surface water. Prime water impurities include soluble dissolved salts, hardness, alkalinity and many toxic elements. The total dissolved solids, hardness and alkalinity have significant impact on the quality of water. The amount of physico-chemical parameters affects the water for most of its uses, whether for drinking, agricultural, or industrial use. The problem of impurities arises when its concentration exceeds the permissible limit prescribed by WHO and BIS standards. It has been found that RO is the most widely used technology to minimise the soluble impurities present in water. The performance of R.Os having thin film composite membranes of hollow fiber shape and made up of polyamide but operating at different pressures has been evaluated for TDS, TH, and TA minimization.
