Reverse Osmosis Pumps
The demand for fresh water is growing all over the world. Reverse osmosis is the process that separates salt and other contaminants from water and other fluids. The most efficient reverse osmosis systems utilize high pressure to purify large volumes of water. On large marine vessels and in remote areas of the world, much of the water comes directly from the ocean. With no cups, packings or seals, the Hydra-Cell pump is ideally suited to deliver smooth, high pressure sea water to the separation membranes of the reverse osmosis unit.

- Solvent and acid recovery
- Process water treatment
- Separation of fluids
- Seawater desalination
- Concentration of chemicals
- Concentration of fruit juices
Other reverse osmosis applications include chemical separation for the ink, food and pharmaceutical industries.
The seal-less nature of the Hydra-Cell diaphragm pumps enable charged and dirty liquids to be processed without need for fine filtration to protect the diaphragm pump.
The Hydra-Cell diaphragm pump needs little maintenance and can operate at continuous duty at high pressure.
Pulsation is low, so dampeners may not be required for most Hydra-Cell® diaphragm pumps.
Hydra-Cell® diaphragm pumps can handle solids up to 500 microns, or more. They can be pumped without fine filtration. System costs are reduced and maintenance is simplified.
Most diaphragm pumps in the Hydra-Cell® diaphragm pump range can operate at any pressure from <1 bar up to at least 70 bar. Some models up to 170 bar.
Seal-less design distinguishes the Hydra-Cell® diaphragm pumps from other diaphragm pumps and is the basis of its long service life - many of the liquids pumped are harmful to pump seals. The Hydra-Cell® diaphragm pumps are tolerant of small solids, resistant to chemical and corrosive attack.
Energy savings. Compact and highly efficient (80-85%), a Hydra-Cell® abrasive pumps can be fitted with a smaller motor than would be required by many much bigger hot water pumps for equivalent flows and pressures.
