Reverse Osmosis

A reverse osmosis filtration system is the best solution for removing fluoride from drinking water. A Reverse Osmosis (RO) system can remove 85-92%* of fluoride in your water.
Essentially, reverse osmosis technology uses pressure to push water through the filtration process. The water passes through a semipermeable membrane, as well as additional filters such as sediment or carbon filters in stages for optimal water quality.
Typical rejection characteristic of R.O. membrane elements and the percent R.O. membranes will remove;

Sodium 85 – 94%
Sulfate 96 – 98%
Calcium 94 – 98%
Potassium 85 – 95%
Nitrate 60 – 75%
Iron 94 – 98%
Zinc 95 – 98%
Mercury 95 – 98%
Selenium 94 – 96%
Phosphate 96 – 98%
Lead 95 – 98%
Arsenic 92 – 96%
Magnesium 94 – 98%
Nickel 96 – 98%
Fluoride 85 – 92%
Manganese 94 – 98%
Cadmium 95 – 98%
Barium 95 – 98%
Cyanide 84 – 92%
Chloride 85 – 92%

During the multi-stage filtration process of an RO system, water will pass through pre-filters to remove sediment, large particles and chlorine, then on to a semi permeable RO membrane which can remove most impurities down to .001 microns, as well as a post filter generally a carbon filter to improve taste.

The chart below demonstrates to what level the RO system will successfully remove or reject impurities (typically down to .001 microns). For example, if fluoride is the main concern, the RO system will eliminate up to 92% of it from the water.

Carbon blocks filter extruded carbon cores allow them to function as both sediment and activated carbon filters, removing sediment particles up to 10 microns and reducing chlorine, taste and odor. Use this filter in residential and commercial water purification systems, food service and as a post or pre-filter in RO systems

Sediment filter is designed to reduce sediment particles up to 1 micron from your water. Density increases from the outside surface going towards the center allowing higher flow rates and superior dirt holding capacity.

Reverse Osmosis is the naturally occurring tendency for two solutions of differing salinity to want to neutralize.  Reverse Osmosis utilizes pressure to overcome the natural tendency and to force pure water through a semi-permeable membrane while concentrating salts and other dissolved solids on the feed side of the membrane.
