SpectraPure® Permeate Pump Retrofit Kits For RO or RO/DI System Information




Reverse osmosis is a common form of water filtration used in systems for aquariums and fish tanks. In reverse osmosis, or RO, a membrane is used to take out big particles of unwanted substances and large molecules of harmful chemicals from a liquid solution. This takes place when pressure is applied on the solution while it passes through the membrane. As a result, the solute is filtered out by not being allowed to pass, while the solvent get to pass all the way through.

This type of filtration is used in the Spectapure® Permeate Pump Retrofit Kits for RO System from Pet Store. The pump in this kit makes the RO system work better because it increases the net pressure all over the RO membrane. This is done by confining the pressure on the membrane and isolating it from the water tank pressure. When paired with a valve with an automated shut-off, this pump makes the purity of the water stored in the tank increase greatly. Aside from that, this pump also lengthens the the life of the membrane and pre-filters used in the system by reducing the waste water by as much as 80%. It also fills the tank twice as fast.

No electricity is necessary to run the pump in the Spectapure® Permeate Pump Retrofit Kits for RO System.

Model # : PP-RFK-RO

SpectraPure® Permeate Pump Retro-Fit Kit for RO Systems

A Permeate Pump increases net pressure across the RO membrane by isolating the membrane pressure from the pressure in the product water tank, thereby reducing the permeate back pressure to less than 3 PSI. Using a permeate pump with an automatic shut-off valve greatly increases water purity stored in the tank, eliminating TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) creep. The pump requires no electricity and is powered by energy from brine normally lost to drain. The use of permeate pump increases membrane life and pre-filter life, reduces waste water by up to 80%, and fills the tank 2 times faster than conventional units.

SpectraPure®`s Permeate Pump Retrofit Kit includes a permeate pump, mounting clip, an automatic shut-off valve and all necessary tubing and fittings. It is available for use with existing RO or RO/DI Drinking Water Systems. Use PP-RFK-RO for RO Systems with Drinking Water Kits & use PP-RFK-DI for RO/DI Systems with Drinking Water kits.

Important Note: The permeate pump is only effective when used with a bladder storage tank. Use of permeate pump does not have any advantage when being used with tanks or sumps open to atmosphere.
