How does the Microline R.O. System work?
The "R.O." of the Microline System is the secret
"R.O." is Reverse Osmosis. This is the natural process which sets the foundation of Microline R.O. Systems. It may sound technical, but osmosis is a natural process that occurs in nature on a continuous basis. Vegetation, like trees, plants and flowers attain their nutrients by using osmosis to draw water from their soil.
Osmosis works like this:
The water that is in the soil is a diluted solution. When the solution is drawn through a plant's membranes to the plant sap, which is a concentrate solution, this process is Osmosis.
The Microline process of Reverse Osmosis (R.O.) works like this:
The pressure from a household tap forces water through a Microline semipermeable membrane. This membrane separates the everyday household water at the molecular level. The membrane acts like a filter to isolate the contaminants, reducing them so that the water becomes pure, Reverse Osmosis water, with substantially reduced dissolved solids and contaminants. This cleaner, purer, refined water is then stored in a holding tank, ready at your convenience.
Another Microline secret: innovative technology
With the unique features of a Microline R.O. System, the quality is evident in the finest of details, the smallest of parts, and naturally...in the water.
The Microline R.O. System contains the patented manifold plate which directs the flow of water through each of the filtration steps. The manifold design simplifies as is enhances the system by eliminating the need for individual connections between filtration stages. The external in-out quick connection fittings simplify installation by locking tubing into place easily, quickly, and securely.
The Microline R.O. System is designed to produce worry-free R.O. water with less waste. When the holding tank is full, the automatic shut-off device is triggered and signals the system to automatically cease production until more water is needed.
These technologies have been the secret to the success of the Microline R.O. System. With 50 years of water treatment experience behind the Microline name, there is a long-standing tradition of excellence and quality.
When water first enters the Microline R.O. System, it flows through a sediment prefilter that protects the automatic shut-off and membrane from clogging with debris. The job of this prefilter is to filter out larger particles such as silt, rust or scale, extending the life of your R.O. membrane an allowing it to tackle the smaller contaminants.
The Microline R.O. System also has an activated carbon prefilter. Not only does the tremendously porous activated carbon remove chlorine particles, (which is necessary to protect the refined ¶ Membrane), it serves to filter out other contaminants, bad taste and odor as well.
Water then travels to the operational center of the system-the membrane. Here, most particles too small to be trapped by the prefilter are removed from the water stream and rinsed to the drain.
The membrane's microscopic pores allow Hydrogen and Oxygen molecules through, (an water is H2O). The majority of the dissolved solids and other contaminants are flushed into the drain's water stream and exit the system.
All Microline R.O. Systems have out patented seal on each membrane. The seal is designed to assure worry free installation, simplify system maintenance and reduce your service costs.
The "Final Polish":
After the membrane, the R.O. water is routed to the holding tank. Our tank holds approximately 2 gallons of fresh, clean water and the automatic shut-off tells the system when it's time to make more! When you turn of the Microline faucet and draw water from the holding tank, it then goes through its final stage of filtration, a carbon filter, to remove any remaining tastes and odors before reaching your glass. The carbon imparts the final "sweet" polish to your water.
