The purpose of the reverse osmosis booster pump is to increase water pressure going into the quick production capacity RO unit for water purifiers. Booster pumps provide reliable pressure feedingfor efficient membrane utilization. These pumps are capable of continuous duty and are effective for recirculation-based applications as well. They are ideally suited to work with hydro-pneumatic storage systems but are compatible with most hydraulic shut-off valves also.
These pumps are commonly used with one or more flow control components including pressure switches, tank level controllers, or electronic shut-off valves. A typical “RO Kit” includes a booster pump, pressure switch, and transformer, which is included.
Reverse osmosis is a pressure-driven process. you won’t get a lot of water and the product water quality will be compromised if the unit runs below 45 psi. Low inlet pressure makes the unit produce more rejected water, produce less drinking water, fill the storage tank more slowly, and produce lower quality water. RO units run well on the typical city water pressure of 70 psi, but they run even better with a small pump to boost the pressure to 100 psi or higher for districts where have few water treatment industries.
