Reverse Osmosis Definition

Whenever two solutions are separated by a cell wall (Membrane), a natural transport mechanism take place called osmosis. During osmosis, The solution of lower concentration tends to migrate through the membrane wall which allow the solution to pass, while rejecting the total dissolved solids into the solution of the higher concentration until the two solutions are in the equilibrium. In reverse osmosis, artificial pressure is applied on the concentrated solution side of the membrane, thus forcing water to migrate through the membrane wall into the less concentrated solution.

  1. Furthermore, reverse osmosis has been proven as an effective water purification process. It is a water purification method which allows for mineral-free water as the ultimate result. It also removes alkaline mineral constituents that neutralize water's acidity, as too much acid can be harmful to one's health.
