Definitions for "Reverse osmosis"
In reverse osmosis, high pressures are applied to force water out of the concentrated solution, often to obtain pure (or purer) water. By the natural process of osmosis, solvent is driven through a semi-permeable membrane separating solutions of different concentrations.
A type of pressurized filtration system in which water is forced through a semipermeable membrane that allows the passage of water but restricts many contaminants.
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a pressure driven membrane separation process that separates dissolved and suspended substances from water.» Read more about Reverse Osmosis...
