Water is a necessity and this necessity has given birth to another necessity that of making this water clean and potable. The need of clean drinking water has caused man to come up with something or the other every time to purify water. Various kinds of water purifiers have come and gone with the up gradation of technology. These days a very popular and successful one being the reverse osmosis water purifier.
Osmosis is the diffusion of a solvent through a semi permeable membrane. In the process of osmosis, the solvent moves from a lower solute level to higher solute level through a semi permeable membrane. When an external pressure is applied on the side with higher concentration of solute it is said to be going through the process of reverse osmosis. Osmotic pressure is created when an external pressure is applied on the side with a higher concentration of solute.
The most prominent advantage offered by the process of reverse osmosis is that it can be controlled and manipulated as desired by controlling the amount of external pressure applied. By applying pressure to the right point, the direction of the flow of water or another liquid is then reversed rather than continuing through the flow of the membrane.
The process of reverse osmosis finds a common application in water filtering and purification systems. It is a great success and is effective in keeping the water clean and free of toxins. The process of reverse osmosis and diffusion are often used synonymously although reverse osmosis is completely different from diffusion process. The major difference that distinguishes the two is that reverse osmosis is a reversible process whereas diffusion is irreversible.
Kent water purifiers integrate the process of reverse osmosis to give you water that is free from toxins and other harmful substances.
