  4. REVOLUTION - REVERSE OSMOSIS WATER PURIFIERS

    Post by : Zerob

    Reverse osmosis is an effective, widely accepted and established technology for purification of water and has also become increasingly popular as one of the technologies used in desalination of seawater for human consumption .

    Reverse Osmosis (RO) is an advanced technology to purify water for a wide range of applications, including production of bottled drinking water, production of ultra-clean water, electronics industries, semiconductors, food processing, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, power generation, seawater desalting, and municipal drinking water (2) It is also used to recycle used water to drinking water on space shuttles and on International Space Stations.

    However, RO is more expensive than conventional treatment techniques and generates concentrate that ultimately requires disposal. Disposal of the concentrate can present serious challenges. In areas where water resources are scarce, there is also a strong desire to get the most product out of the source water used. Therefore, maximization of recovery (the ratio of treated water produced to source water used) has become an important challenge to make RO economically feasible for communities. (5)

    From classified reports, high recovery processes are broadly classified in to three claims which are for industrial RO systems and the other unique one for domestic RO purifiers

    HIGH RECOVERY RO’s – Industrial scenario

    1. CCD (Close circuit desalination )

    In industrial RO systems, recoveries as high as more than 90% can be achieved. Semi batch or close circuit ROs provide high recoveries (4)
    The CCD (Close circuit) RO process for high-permeate-recovery operation, uses single membrane pressure vessel representing multiple modules operating in parallel
    Brine is recirculated without depressurization. When a desired recovery percentage is reached, brine is throttled out of the system. Brine rejection is executed without stopping the high pressure pump or the production of permeate. The process then returns to closed-loop operation, during which there is no brine reject stream. The resulting average membrane feed pressure in the CCD process is much lower than the feed pressure of typical RO or NF
    Continuous brine recirculation maintains a maximum salt concentration in the membrane array, resulting in higher membrane feed pressure requirements, higher salt passage and permeate salinity, and higher risk of precipitation of sparingly soluble salts compared to CCD processes in which brine is completely purged regularly.

    RO Close Circuit Desalination

    2. UF pretreatment

    UF system provides an adequate flow of high-quality permeate to the RO unit by removal of turbidity and particulate matter. UF enhances and ensures the performance of the RO system, resulting in optimal flux, high salt rejection, and high recovery. (6)

    3. HERO

    High Efficiency Reverse Osmosis (HERO) is a reverse osmosis technology specially designed to treat high silica, it can handle three to seven times higher silica levels than traditional RO systems (up to 2,000 ppm in concentrate stream)
    It continuously operates above 90% water recovery – unprecedented for a typical reverse osmosis system – with little or no bio-fouling and organic fouling compared to a conventional RO. This also offers significant operational benefits. The process has an excellent track record of treatment of cooling tower blow down where conventional reverse osmosis (RO) is generally considered to be a less effective technology.
    In some instances, HERO™ may be used to replace or supplement an evaporation process as a cost-effective method of achieving zero liquid discharge (ZLD).

    Basic process consists of three steps: Hardness and suspended solids removal, Carbon dioxide removal, and RO treatment at elevated pH.

    RO Treatment

    4. A BREAKTHOUGH HIGH RECOVERY PROCESS– Domestic RO purifiers

    The high recovery process that maximizes product yield from a single membrane
    Background Reverse osmosis technology converts salty water to pure, good tasting water.
    When there is no option for the customer and he has to be completely dependent on bore well- hard water, he realizes the importance of RO, since it removes TDS more than 90% and converts salty , bad tasting water to sweet palatable water
    One may feel RO is a complete solution for drinking water purification , but may get disappointed when he knows the fact that while delivering pure water RO rejects or wastes lot of water .
    Demand for water is high and global resources are limited, yet current RO systems waste both water and energy(1), a major drawback of this technology is that, it wastes lot of water while delivering pure water.
    Often users of RO purifier collect this reject water and use it for flushing, in this era of water conservation , wasting water is highly questionable

    Drinking water purifiers based on RO technology recovers good water to the extents of 20-25% remaining 80-85% water constituting contaminants and excessive salts is rejected /wasted.
    Water being precious, this water wastage is always a matter of great concern.
    The higher the recovery % means that you are sending less water to the drain as concentrate and saving more permeate water.

    Let us understand what is percentage recovery of RO membrane.
    Percent Recovery is the amount of water that is being 'recovered' as good permeate water compared to the wasted water. (3)
    In case, the process design choose and operate this membrane at higher recovery more than 20%,, the membrane life is compromised consequently, due to depositions of hardness causing elements like calcium, magnesium and other salts on membrane surfaces, eventually pure water flow through membrane reduces.

    RO Elements Cost Factor


    Single RO membrane generally gives 20-25% recoveries
    Recoveries as high as 80-90% are achievable using multiple RO membranes. However the challenge is to obtain high recovery from a single RO element. Multiple RO elements being a cost factor.

    How can we reduce this water wastage in RO purifiers?

    The present invention has enabled the recovery as high as 70-80% with single RO membrane thereby reduce water wastage as compared to conventional RO purifiers. (patent rights enforced )

    High recovery is achieved by

    a. Preventing excessive salt deposition on membrane.
    b. Preventing fouling of membranes due to microorganisms in water.

    The proprietary, ‘Water Saver Cartridge’ , WSC which is the key element of RO water purifier. It releases elements that prevent salt deposition on the membrane and thereby enhance RO membrane life.

    The WCS also releases frequently small amount of disinfectant electrolytically which prevents biofouling of RO membranes and keeps the membrane sanitized.

    Unlike conventional reverse osmosis purification system ,this system does not use any oxidizing chemicals for sanitization externally. WSC contains an in-built sanitizing system which avoids the use of oxidizing chemicals like chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid. This unique Water saver cartridge therefore not only prevents the membrane scaling but also protects the membrane surface from biofouling due to microorganisms in raw water . Thus High recovery RO purifier with 70-80% pure water recovery, with a feature of biofouling prevention is a revolution in the field of domestic reverse osmosis purifiers.

    This novel concept is now commercialized , has evolved as Zero-B Eco-RO in domestic and institutional RO water purifiers

    Pure Water in Bottle

    Is bottled water healthy?
    How healthy is the water inside a bottle?
    Is the taste of water affected by bottled water?
    Are bottled waters overpriced?
    Are bottled water pure than tap water?

    Though bottled water producers will make you believe that the water they provide in bottles are of the purest form with claims and pictures of water being sourced from springs and pristine sources but in reality it is no purer than ordinary tap water.
    The purity talk of Bottled water is more hype than reality.
    The taste and quality of bottled water can range from very good to very bad depending on the brand, and that is a serious problem leave aside the perils of plastic leach that releases harmful chemicals and hormone disruptors into water.

    Over and above that bottled waters are overpriced, most times unsanitary and are a major cause of environmental pollution.

    What is Zero B Kitchen mate?
    How is Zero B different than others?
    What are the main benefits of Kitchenmate?
    What is the most important ingredient in cooking any dish?
    Where to do the installation of water filter?

    In a modern home the kitchen is no longer out of bounds for guests. Hence apart being functional with all the modern and effort saving appliances, esthetics is playing an important role in designing and building the kitchen. This has led to a revolution not only in the efficiency of kitchen appliances but also in the overall look and design elements. Even as recent as 15 years ago the fridge used to come only in boring white. A sizable budget for a modular kitchen is now part of doing the interiors of a house.

    Modular Kitchen

    The Kitchen layout is an important ‘ingredient’ of your home décor. Creating stylish, streamlined storage is highly sought after, and it’s important to create a home for every imaginable kitchen item like large spaces for pulses and cereals, shelves for snacks, hangers for pots and pans etc. Clever internal organizers within cupboards add that extra special touch and makes your kitchen run smoothly too. Specially crafted spaces are carved for the ever increasing appliances. The recent past has given emphasis on lighting and color too. A little zest of colour will really bring your space to life.

    Kitchen Layout

    The most important ingredient in cooking any dish is water. Safe water has always been at premium. Water purifiers are a must in list of gadgets in the kitchen. However lack of design values in most water purifiers’ has made it a daunting task for interior designers to place them. They either have to create a place under the sink to hide them or camouflage them with some kind of covering. Not only is this inconvenient and expensive but also creates installation and servicing challenges.

    Most kitchens do not make space for water purifiers. They have to be close to the sink. However, do consider an under-counter water purifier. It fits in seamlessly with the rest of your cabinets, frees up valuable kitchen space and makes sense ergonomically. Installation of an under sink water purifier require minimal plumbing techniques and are easy to maintain.

    Sink Water Purifier

  7. ‘Green Touch’ to make Hard Water as soft as the morning Dew

    Post by : zerob

    What is Zero B Softener?
    Does the Zero B Softener work for hard water?
    Does hard water increase gas consumption?
    Doe hard water lead to blockages?
    What health effects does hard water have?

    Hard water can have adverse affects in various ways. Not only does it take away the taste of fresh fruits and vegetables when they are washed & cooked, hard water also reduce the lifespan of expensive household appliances like geysers, washing machines, dishwashers etc.

    Does hard water increase gas consumption?Does hard water lead to blockages?
    Hard water increases the consumption of gas, increasing utility bills manifold. It leads too blockages in the piping system, thereby reducing water pressure because of corrosion and rust accumulation and increased bacteria in the drinking water. Life expectancy of cloths is reduced when washed with hard water. It also dulls surfaces in bathrooms and kitchens, leading to higher cleaning costs which require aggressive cleaning chemicals and increased labor. Hard water also has adverse effects on health and could cause skin damage and hair loss.

    Hard Water

    “Hard” water has high levels of dissolved calcium and/ or magnesium minerals. These minerals may occur in ground water passing through limestone, or other rocks with a calcium mineral content. As water evaporates, these minerals harden themselves as mineral deposits, also known as scale. The level of hardness is related to the amount of dissolved mineral in the water. There are proven solutions soften hardwater. It can be corrected by the use of a water softener/conditioner. The water passes through a tank containing resin beads holding “soft” sodium ions. The “hard” calcium and magnesium ions are then exchanged for sodium ions, thus softening the water.

    The water that enters the house is filtered through the zeolite minerals. A reaction occurs during the treatment process which replaces the magnesium and calcium ions to be replaced by sodium. The minerals containing zeolite require change on a periodic basis. This system includes a large tank where the bags of softener salts are regularly added. Chemical method is the most inexpensive way of treating hard water. Two chemicals used in the water treatment are Sal soda and Calgon.

    Ion Exchange a global leader in providing safe water has one of the best solutions to treat hard water. The Zero B series of Water Softeners incorporate the proven technique of counter flow regeneration which has been pioneered by Ion Exchange. This technique is ideally suited to treat water with high hardness. The flow of water and the flow of brine (Salt Solution), which is used for regeneration, are opposite to each other during operation.

    Hard Water Damage Hair

    Zero B New Generation Softeners Series are compact, manually & automatically operated units that are easily and quickly installed. Zero B Softenizer Unit consists of a tank containing Ion Exchange Resin Media, which removes hardness from water to acceptable level.

    The hard water passes through this sodium-rich ION Exchange Resin. The media exchanges minerals that cause hardness like calcium (CA) and magnesium (Mg) for sodium. This results in the softness of water that comes out from the outlet. After continuous usage, the resins get saturated with minerals and have to be replaced using Zero B Palletized Salt.

    The Zero B New Generation Softeners Series can be used for water treatment in housing societies, hotels, shopping malls, hospitals and corporate parks.
