Reference ID: 107643
Industry: Food industry

A leading nutrition company has upgraded their 19 years old reverse osmosis unit with the water-saving solution RO-PLUS.  The modernization kit could be applied directly on the existing RO unit after analyzing that the water quality and operation met the requirements.  After installing the RO-PLUS module, water savings as high as 50 % were gained immediately. Consequently, salt consumption for regeneration of softeners dropped significantly as well.
