Membrane Upgrades

One of the most simple ways of upgrading your system is to change out your filter membranes. Worn membranes can decrease water flow and reduce the effectiveness of your entire system. Complete Water offers convenient membrane cleaning for an easy solution.

When should you consider upgrading or cleaning your membranes?

  1. Reverse Osmosis membranes should be cleaned when normalized flow decreases by 10% from the initial acceptance test conditions.
  2. Reverse Osmosis membranes should be cleaned when the overall pressure drop increases by 15% over the initial acceptance test conditions.

If you are looking to increase the GPD of your system, higher flow membranes are also available. With the proper fittings, you can increase your output without costly full system rebuilds.

Why upgrade your Industrial RO System?

We are familiar with systems of all makes and brands, making it easy to identify potential problem areas. When reviewing your RO system for potential upgrades, we have to look at a few things. 

  • Water Quality – while the existing system may be meeting the needs of water quality upgrading your system may not meet those water quality requirements. So performing an incoming water analysis to determine if the system upgrade will still me the requirements.
  • Flow Rate – this is one of the most common reasons for upgrading a system is to produce more flow or produce more water. A few things to consider when upgrading your system for flow. Are all water treatment equipment in the water treatment system able to handle the increased flow? Upgrading a RO System for example may need a larger softener or carbon filter in order to handle the increased water flow. Plumbing (water supply) and Pressure are other areas that can affect the flow and may need to be reviewed or upgraded to handle the new water demand.
  • Utilities – Water, Air, Electrical Systems, and Steam are all part of the utility category. Utilities may change when upgrading a water treatment system. Reverse Osmosis upgrades may require upgrading the pump. This upgrade of the pump may require more FLA (Full Load Amps) which may result in larger gauge electrical wiring and a higher AMP breaker. If your pump is controlled by a motor starter with overload you may need to increase the overload portion of the motor starter.
