RPG Water Catalyst has shown the following results when placed in front of RO/Desal systems.
This membrane was plugged at 11 months of age with bacterially produced magnetite crystals.
When new membranes were replaced in this RO system my filter designed to remove this magnetite from water was installed as a pre-filter to the RO.
This was a 1500 gallon per day system, and for the next five years this system produced over 2100 gallons per day.
At the end of five years, this RO system was replaced with a larger system. The membranes were pulled and opened up and there was no indication of staining or any sort of fouling within the membranes.
Because of the limits of the pump and flow control valves on this system indications are it would have been possible to increase production through this system by 40 to 50 percent and remained within the prescribed pressure settings.
Across the street from this location, I installed another magnetite filter in front of an RO system that would provide water for a water knife. The water knife required approximately 50,000 psi to operate properly. It took several pump changes to get the pressure up to the required level.
RPG Water Catalyst reduces the maintenance and cleaning schedules, increases production of, and reduces the the TDS of RO/Desal product water.
RPG Water Catalyst water flows faster through restrictions with less pressure.
