Ca Exchange and Cation

Encyclopedia of Water TreatmentTM

Visually oriented training volumes that are filled with graphic animations and are highly interactive. These training materials make learning about water treatment enjoyable. Their interactive simulations offer the next best thing to working with actual reverse osmosis (RO), ion exchange (IX), electrodeionization (EDI), and other equipment used to produce pure water.

Purewatercloud is known for providing the most advanced training in membrane based water treatment, such as in monitoring RO fouling potential using SDI measurement. The training is comprehensive with an emphasis on creating a fundamental understanding of concepts.  A deep understanding of high-purity water treatment will result in an improved ability to make intelligent decisions that are appropriate to the specific demands of each situation.

The Foremost Book on Reverse Osmosis (RO)

Purewatercloud presents Reverse Osmosis: A Practical Guide for Industrial Users by Wes Byrne.  This book has been the leading support text for over twenty years offering comprensive answers for those involved with reverse osmosis systems.

Reverse Osmosis (RO) Book Cover

About the RO Book

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a growing technology whose applications are rapidly expanding. Books on reverse osmosis have been written emphasizing the theory of membrane technology. This book emphasizes the application of reverse osmosis, specifically in industrial and municipal markets. It explains how RO systems are designed and applied, and defines its pretreatment requirements based upon the water characteristics. This book offers value for design and process engineers manufacturing RO systems or working for engineering companies, as well as those involved with the operation of RO systems.

Our book is a training guide; it explains how to monitor and maintain RO systems. This knowledge is critical for the daily evaluation of RO system performance. It covers various aspects of membrane cleaning and sanitization, and also discusses most of the common RO system problems that should be investigated when troubleshooting an RO concern. These topics make the book an excellent tool for technicians who maintain RO systems.

Some of the common and more interesting applications of reverse osmosis are discussed in detail. These include two-pass RO for high purity water production, pharmaceutical water treatment, seawater desalination, application of RO for fruit juice concentration, plating metal recycling, the treatment of secondary sewage effluent, and the final filtration of deionized (DI) water.
