Product: Aquili RO Classic + Flush Valve - reverse in-line osmosis system 190 L/h
Reverse osmosis is a technology that exploits the ability of certain semi-permeable membranes to separate water from dissolved substances .
By applying some pressure (the water network ) , you can force the water to cross the membrane , the pure water ( permeate) will be separated from the water containing salts (concentrate)
The osmotic membrane which implements the level more stringent feasible ( that of polyamides / polysulfone ) , behaves as a barrier against not only salts and inorganic substances, but also in respect of organic substances of molecular weight greater than 100 , so it is a excellent defense against micro-pollutants , pesticides, pyrogen , virus and bacteria that were contained in the water .
This technology appeared on the market of water treatment in recent times, saying it came quickly , and in a few years , has established itself thanks to its characteristics of versatility, excellent performance and ease of use .
• The membranes were tested at 25 ° , 4.8 bar , such as 2000 ppm TDS.
• Due to the different operating conditions , compared to those ideals which have been verified , the real output is about half of the theoretical one.
Osmotic water - Water remaining units have been set up and tested on the ideal ratio of 1 to 4.
Operating pressure 3-8 bar
Temperature 1-30 degrees centigrade
Quality Polyamide Membrane TFM - Polysulfone
Rate of retention of salts 98% - 99%
Values in Water Output 10-40 microsiemens
L ' OSMO50 plant is composed of :
Sediment filter 5 micron
Carbon Block Filter treated with acids is required for the disposal of sewage
Osmotic membrane with a flow rate of 50/100 gallons per day ( 1 gallon = 3.785 liters)
Attention to ...
Connect the system always and only to a cold water pipe (maximum 30 ° C) otherwise worsen the rate of withholding tax and the membrane may be damaged ahead of time.
Check that the diaphragm is pushed right at the bottom , before screwing the lid of the container ( 4). ( the central tube of the membrane must be aligned with the edge of the container without lid ) .
Do not force the fittings (especially the elbow - Flow Restrictor ), but , if once started, the system showed the leaks, use Teflon.
Slide the water in the carbon filter before connecting it to the membrane , so that it can spurgarsi of impurities that may be present .
The osmotic water and the remaining water should always be able to escape ; never close with taps or something.
Protect the membrane from freezing and drying . When used in the membrane no longer needs to dry out.
If the reverse osmosis system will not be used for more than 10-15 days, use a protective solution which maintains efficient form osmotic inhibiting the growth of bacteria and preventing the deposition of impurities ( Preservation Fluid) .
It is not possible with the reverse osmosis delete individual values are particularly high , for example, a high content of silicon dioxide or nitrate .
Do not leave the machine unattended during use.
Do not use the water for food .
Always use original spare parts.
Carry out regular changes of the pre-filter sediment and carbon filter. The function of the active carbon is to retain the chlorine which , if it passes , irreparably damages the membrane lacerandone the microstructure . The salts will not be held in an optimal manner and the value in microsiemens , the water outlet will increase.
The calcium and magnesium tend to settle within the membrane reducing their productivity . Disinfection Powder thoroughly disinfects and removes all debris ( impurities ) restoring the efficiency of the system.
Very useful for a correct management of the aquarium , which is enriched with minerals Minerals and trace elements osmosis water and all the water very tender .
The value of the pH of the permeate is not predictable, high values of pH can be easily adjusted downwards with CO2 if the pH level is too low, it is sufficient to ventilate the water obtained .

In our system the water enters from the tap of the water mains by means dell'allaccio ( fitting which is located inside of the sachet ) , arrives to a universal connection ( 1 ) , and passes through a prefilter to Sedimentation ( 2 ) that holds particles larger than 0.005 mm ( 5 micron) . ( Only models Classic RO and RO NPS have the filter to sedimentation , in models RO Basic charcoal filter also performs the function of mechanical filter to 5 microns ) . After this purification before the water is made to slide in a cartridge with coal active ( 3), which removes chlorine and also eliminates the traces of pesticides, herbicides , metals and , also , the bad taste and / or smell that water can deliver. After being passed through the carbon filter , the water is sent , under pressure, to a special membrane ( 5 ) which lets only the pure water . The substances which harden the water and harmful ones such as salts, carbonates , sulphates, heavy metals, pesticides , and even bacteria and viruses are retained and rinsed with the remaining water .
For assembly, the diaphragm is inserted into its container in such a way that the O-ring remains thicker towards the cap , while the two O-rings remain small downward.
To achieve the desired effect is decisive for the quality of the osmotic membrane , the membranes used in our equipment (polyamide / polysulfone ) are extremely resistant bacterial aggression , have long life , are easy to maintain and remain unchanged for years. The water once treated , is pre- ducted in the central tube and exits the membrane , pure water, through the central duct ( 6 ) . For the commissioning of the turn on the tap and rinse for at least two hours the appliance , make sure that during this period in the ductwork (7 ) slides at least one quadruple amount of concentrated than osmotic water produced .
RO filter with anti NO3- PO4- SiO2 :
If you have a system Osmosis Filter with anti NO3- PO4- SiO2 , before connecting the water outlet osmotic suppression filter nitrate - phosphate - silicate (8) , it is advisable to let the water run for about 2-3 hours in order to completely eliminate the preservative dry the membrane.
