Reverse osmosis is considered to be one of the most effective water filtration methods, ensuring cleaner, purer water that is suitable for various essential applications.

At Lubron, our reverse osmosis systems are designed to go beyond the abilities of typical water filtration, removing unwanted contaminants, pollutants and particles in a way that is safe, cost effective and doesn’t require the use of chemicals.

About Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis, commonly referred to as RO, is a process where contaminants are removed from water by pushing it under pressure through a semi-permeable membrane. This reverse osmosis membrane allows water molecules to pass through, whilst holding back the majority of unwanted contaminants.

Some of the contaminants that reverse osmosis help to reduce and remove include;

  • Fluoride
  • Salt
  • Sediment
  • Metal ions such as – copper, chromium and lead
  • Chlorine, calcium, magnesium and potassium
  • Arsenic, radium, phosphorous and nitrate
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Bacteria
  • Herbicides and pesticides

Our effective reverse osmosis systems are designed to remove up to 98% of dissolved solids to ensure that your water is safe and contaminant-free.

The Benefits of Reverse Osmosis

A reverse osmosis water system is one of the most extensive methods of filtration which can provide many benefits, including;

  • Can provide substantial cost savings
  • Improves energy efficiency
  • Reduces harmful contaminants
  • Removes foul tastes and odors
  • Enhanced system performance
  • Reduction of scale
  • Superior taste and clarity in drinking water
  • Requires no hazardous chemicals
  • Less hazardous wastewater
  • RO systems are low maintenance

Applications for Reverse Osmosis Systems

At Lubron, our specialists have worked with clients across various industries, to provide innovative water solutions to suit their requirements. Here are just some of the many sectors and applications that our reverse osmosis systems have been used to ensure safer, purer and healthier water.

  • Industrial

Water is regularly used in a number of industrial processes from boiler feed water and spot-free rinsing to desalination and municipal water purification. Reverse osmosis helps industrial and manufacturing facilities, because the clean water can be reused, saving a lot of water waste and reducing water scarcity.

  • Building Services

Large building complexes require a reliable water source for multiple applications and using a reverse osmosis system is an effective way of reducing blowdown for steam boilers.

  • Hospitality

We supply commercial water softeners and reverse osmosis units for dish and glass washing within the hospitality sector. Our hot and cold, commercial water softeners and Reverse Osmosis units help to ensure stain-free water for the highest quality results, and we can soften the water for boiler feed only or for the whole building if required.

  • Healthcare

Our high-quality reverse osmosis water filtration systems provide high flow ratings and multiple stages which help to remove a high percentage of contaminants, resulting in clean, highly purified water ideal for medical facilities and hospitals.

Data Centres

Our experts have developed a new range of Reverse Osmosis systems which are uniquely tailored to the needs of adiabatic cooling systems used in data centres. These systems can be used without the addition of biocides, saving time and money whilst ensuring that there is always quality water available.

  • Agriculture

Reverse osmosis offers a non-chemical option for the horticulture and agriculture sector where fungal diseases and other unwanted contaminants can often be introduced via waterborne bacteria. Our reverse osmosis systems provide a straightforward and cost-effective solution, delivering high-grade water that can be used safely on delicate plant life.
