Since then, spiral-wound RO membranes have increasingly replaced ion exchange for water purification in industrial applications, especially for boiler feedwater. Drought conditions and rising demand for fresh water will increase the usage of RO to purify water from lower-quality sources. Implementing best practices will maximize the efficiency and quality of product water from RO units, as well as reduce operating costs (chemicals and replacem
