Why and when you need NF Water purifier?
For all Muncipal water with less than 600 TDS water, You must by NF water purifier in place of RO, RO Membrane removes 98% Minerals from the water where as NF removes only 60% and keeps essential minerals like Ca,K,Na and Mg, It also ensures 100% Removal of Virus and bacteria from the water which normally cant be removed by normal branded UV water purifier.
Can I change my present RO to NF?
Yes If your water TDS is constant and less than 600, You must change to NF, While changing you also need to change Flow Restrictor to 350 or 300, Nromal 50 GPD or 75 GPd booster pump will do work for NF water purifier.
Can I use Alkaline filter after NF?
Yes you can if you need increased PH value in the water with negative ORP.
How Nano Filtration works?
The membrane separation process known as nanofiltration is essentially a liquid phase one, because it separates a range of inorganic and organic substances from solution in a liquid – mainly, but by no means entirely, water. This is done by diffusion through a membrane, under pressure differentials that are considerable less than those for reverse osmosis, but still significantly greater than those for ultrafiltration. It was the development of a thin film composite membrane that gave the real impetus to nanofiltration as a recognised process, and its remarkable growth since then is largely because of its unique ability to separate and fractionate ionic and relatively low molecular weight organic species.
The membranes are key to the performance of nanofiltration systems. They are produced in plate and frame form, spiral wound, tubular, capillary and hollow fibre formats, from a range of materials, including cellulose derivatives and synthetic polymers, from inorganic materials, ceramics especially, and from organic/inorganic hybrids.
Recent developments of membranes for NF have greatly extended their capabilities in very high or low pH environments, and in their application to non-aqueous liquids. The plastic media are highly cross-linked, to give long-term stability and a practical lifetime in more aggressive environments. NF membranes tend to have a slightly charged surface, with a negative charge at neutral pH. This surface charge plays an important role in the transportation mechanism and separation properties of the membrane.
As with any other membrane process, nanofiltration is susceptible to fouling, and so nanofiltration systems must be designed to minimise its likelihood – with proper pretreatment, with the right membrane material, with adequate cross-flow velocities to scour the membrane surface clear of accumulated slime, and by use of rotating or vibrating membrane holders.
