In many nations across the world, the simple, inexpensive reverse osmosis (RO) process has helped people in both the commercial and residential sectors to attain an adequate supply of clean drinking water for many years now.
Desalination, converting saltwater into potable fluids, has become a reality because of RO systems. RO is currently the most effective solution to supply drinking water to drought-stricken areas or places with inadequate supply of potable water.
The RO system extracts inorganic solids (such as salts) from a solution like seawater, for instance, to turn seawater into more potable form. Highly concentrated water is pushed through a semi permeable membrane, filtering impurities and contaminates, and allowing only water to pass through.
