Reverse Osmosis Water Filter:

Reverse Osmosis Water Filter The basic components By John Danson http://reverseosmosiswaterfiltersite.com

Basic components common to all reverse osmosis water filters:

Basic components common to all reverse osmosis water filters Reverse osmosis water filter comes in all shapes and brands but the basic components are more or less similar for all the different makes.

Common basic components:

Common basic components Reverse osmosis water filter water inlet valve Reverse osmosis water filter pre-filters Reverse osmosis water filter membrane Reverse osmosis water filter storage tank Reverse osmosis water filter post filter Reverse osmosis water filter automatic shut off valve Reverse osmosis water filter check valve Reverse osmosis water filter flow restrictor Reverse osmosis water filter faucet Reverse osmosis water filter drain line

Reverse osmosis water filter water inlet valve:

Reverse osmosis water filter water inlet valve This is the valve that connects the reverse osmosis water filter to the water supply line that supplies water to your home. The valve is connected to the water inlet by a tube. This is the water source that supplies water to be processed by the filter.

Reverse osmosis water filter pre-filters :

Reverse osmosis water filter pre-filters These pre-filters are fixed before the water filter so that water from the supply line pass through the pre-filters to remove all unwanted particles. Normally carbon pre-filters are used to remove chlorine which may harm the semi-permeable membrane. Pre-filters are used to protect the semi-permeable membrane beside filtering out silk, dirts and other sediment.

Reverse osmosis water filter membrane :

Reverse osmosis water filter membrane The semi-permeable membrane will remove all impurities by applying pressure to the water to force it through the tiny pores of the membrane which is usually around 0.0001micron. There are two types of membrane which are normally used. Cellulose Triacetate (CTA) is tolerant to chlorine and Thin Film Composite (TFC) which is not tolerant ot chlorine.

Reverse osmosis water filter storage tank :

Reverse osmosis water filter storage tank Processed water are stored in a storage tank which can hold up to 2.5 gallons of water. There is a bladder to keep the pressure in the water tank when the tank is full.

Reverse osmosis water filter post filter :

Reverse osmosis water filter post filter Carbon or activated carbon post filter is used as to filter the purified water that comes from the storage tank. This post filter will remove any odour or taste from the water before leaving the water filter to the faucet.

Reverse osmosis water filter automatic shut off valve :

Reverse osmosis water filter automatic shut off valve This shut off valve will stop the water from entering the membrane when the storage tank is full and stops the filtering process. The outflow of waste water also stops. When purified water is drawn from the storage tank, the pressure in the tank reduces and the valve opens to allow the purifying process to begin and waste water being released to the drain.

Reverse osmosis water filter check valve :

Reverse osmosis water filter check valve This check valve is fixed at the outlet of the water filter membrane housing. This valve will prevent any backward flow of purified water from the storage tank to the membrane. Backward flow would damage the membrane.

Reverse osmosis water filter flow restrictor :

Reverse osmosis water filter flow restrictor This flow restrictor regulates the flow of water through the membrane to produce the highest quality of purified water. Without this device located at the drain line tube, very little purified water will be produced as water from the supply line will simply flow down the drain line where there is less resistance.

Reverse osmosis water filter faucet :

Reverse osmosis water filter faucet The water filter has its own faucet installed at the kitchen sink where drinking water can be drawn.

Reverse osmosis water filter drain line :

Reverse osmosis water filter drain line This drain line is connected to the outlet of the water filter membrane housing. This line allows the waste water which contains all impurities and contaminants  which was remove from the tap water during the purifying process.
