What is the difference between Water Softener & RO Plant?


What is the difference between Water Softener & RO Plant?

There is a whole lot of difference between a Water Softener and an RO Plant.

We shall know what are these two?

Ro Plant

Firstly, RO Plant is also known as Reverse Osmosis Plant. Reverse osmosis operates by utilizing advanced filtration technology which removes dissolved ions from water. Osmosis is an elemental force that draws water to water with higher salt content. This is a process by which dissolved ions are removed from water. This elemental force can be surmounted by applied pressure with the usage of pumps and semi-permeable membranes, which forces water through the membrane and filters out dissolved salt from the water.

Need of RO Plant

RO system helps to purify the contaminated water which can be used for a variety of purposes such as:

  • Drinking water
  • Desalination
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Concentration of contaminants
  • Reclamation of dissolved minerals, etc.


How does Reverse Osmosis work?

Reverse Osmosis works by using a high-pressure pump to increase the pressure on the salt side of the RO and force the water across the semi-permeable RO membrane, leaving almost all (around 95% to 99%) of dissolved salts behind in the reject stream. The amount of pressure required depends on the salt concentration of the feed water. The more concentrated the feed water, the more pressure is required to overcome the osmotic pressure.

The desalinated water that is demineralized or deionized, is called permeate (or product) water. The water stream that carries the concentrated contaminants that did not pass through the RO membrane is called the reject (or concentrate) stream.



Water Softener

Softener is called as filtering agent and is used to remove calcium and magnesium. Most people are unaware that not all water is the same, particularly in terms of its chemical composition. Some water is hard because of high levels of magnesium and calcium minerals absorbed from the soil. Soft water is defined as water that lacks or has a restricted amount of certain minerals. Stream and lake water is inherently gentle.

In some areas water tend to be hard, so to soften the water, a water softener is used to remove the mineral components that cause it to be hard. Pearl Water Technologies is a prominent producer of industrial and home water softener plants with extensive industry knowledge and skills in the water treatment sector. Our water softeners are ISO certified and excellent in softening hard water, which contains dissolved pebbles as well as calcium and magnesium ions. We supply customized water softeners for homes and businesses based on the needs of the client.

Pearl Water Industrial and Domestic water softeners are simple to install and use. This water softener for home and industrial is totally autonomous, providing soft water throughout your household with little effort. This product is a one-stop shop for all of your hard water concerns. This water softener protects all the appliances, washing machines etc. from internal damage. It also protects hair and skin from hard water which is totally unhealthy for hairs


Need of an Water Softener

  • Basically, it softens water!
  • It improves the mineral content balance of the water
  • Removes toxins such as ferrous iron
  • Makes laundry and general cleaning easier
  • Lowers costs of appliance repairs and unnecessary replacements


How does Water Softener work?


Hard water enters your home from a main water pipe or well, and travels to the water softener. Resin beads in the tank attract and hold onto hard water minerals, removing them from the water. Softened water exits the tank and flows to the plumbing throughout your home.

water softener contains a resin bed through which the water flows and the exchange of hard ions such as calcium and magnesium for sodium ions take place.


What is a water softener resin?

A water softener resin bed is the main ingredient in the water softener that converts hard water into soft water. It attracts magnesium and calcium, which makes the water hard, and replaces them with soft ions such as sodium. A water softener resin looks like a bed made of beads and each bead size ranges from 0.3 to 1.2 mm. The resin is made up of polystyrene, which is a type of plastic, and Divinylbenzene (DVB). DVB is a yellow colour liquid, has a strong smell, and holds the resin bed together.
