RO Water & Ultraviolet filtration
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane to remove larger particles from drinking water. In Reverse Osmosis, an applied pressure is used to overcome osmotic pressure that is driven by chemical potential, a thermodynamic parameter.
Ultraviolet Water Purification
Did you know: Ultraviolet (UV) systems can destroy 99.99% of harmful microorganisms without adding chemicals or changing your water’s taste or odor? It is one of the four methods of disinfection approved by the United States FDA. UV has proven to be a quick, reliable and cost effective method of disinfecting water for both point of use and point of entry.
Ultraviolet is a safe, clean, easy-to-maintain method of assuring that water is free of bacteria. UV Water Purification uses Ultraviolet light, just like sunlight, to kill micro-organisms that may be in the water. It is a proven technology that has no significant drawbacks. In some applications, its initial cost is a bit more than chlorination, but because of its low operating cost, it quickly pays for itself. It is environmentally friendly and essentially trouble-free. Most ultraviolet water treatment systems require only an annual change of lamp – as simple as changing a light bulb – and a periodic change of the filter cartridge.
Acme Water World offers premier brands of UV systems and replacement bulbs, lamps and components for a wide variety of UV systems.
