RO membrane in the Aquaguard RO purifier

When we speak about RO purifiers, what matters most is the RO membrane incorporated. The purification effectiveness all depends on this membrane. Today’s RO filters come incorporated with more than just the RO membrane. You will come across numerous filter cartridges in the Aquaguard RO system. This ensures that not a single contaminant is left in the purified water. Besides reducing the TDS levels, the purifier will get rid of the A-Z of contaminants including even the toughest ones.

Two common types of RO membranes are generally used in domestic RO purifiers in India - the Thin Film Composite (TFC or TFM) membrane and the Cellulose Triacetate (CTA) membrane. Aquaguard RO uses the TFC spiral RO membrane. This membrane rejects 98 percent of standard contaminants on an average and is less vulnerable to organic fouling. The only limitation is that it can treat chlorine free water. This is the reason why Aquaguard RO systems come with carbon pre-treatment to purify even chlorinated water. This only enhances the membrane life. The CTA membrane is chlorine tolerant, but it rejects 93 percent of standard contaminants and is more vulnerable to organic fouling.

Well it is not only carbon pre-treatment that identifies the Aquaguard RO; as aforesaid, at least four to six filter cartridges including the RO membrane marks every system. There are numerous options to choose from under the Aquaguard RO category from the house of Eureka Forbes. These are Aquaguard Total ENHANCE, Aquaguard Total Reviva, and Aquaguard Total Atom.
