Function of Permeate Pump in RO SystemWHAT DOES A PERMEATE PUMP DO?

The Permeate Pump is powered only by the hydraulic energy of brine water usually lost to the drain. The Permeate Pump forces product water into the storage tank, reducing membrane back pressure and maximizing available feed pressure. These pumps dramatically improve the efficiency of R.O. water production, reducing wastewater by up to 80%. Permeate Pumps can also bring storage tanks up to line pressure and then shut the system down when these tanks reach capacity, eliminating the need for a hydraulic shut-off valve.

Other benefits include higher delivery pressures, faster R.O. water production, superior water quality, and extended filter/membrane life.

The permeate pump includes a specially designed insert which helps the system operate in near silence, eliminating the occasional clicking or gurgling sounds that can otherwise occur. Reading the permeate pump installation instructions is important if you are buying one.
