CapDI vs RO at 2,000 ppm - AGWT

CapDI  vs RO TECHNICAL COMPARISON ©

2,000 ppm

This document represents the technical comparison between Voltea's CapDI technology and conventional Reverse Osmosis based on product and sales figures. Data included reflects 2,000 ppm TDS and 50°F (10°C) feed water for the study of low water temperature effects. System sizing is based on Voltea's line of Industrial Series systems IS4, IS10, and IS23, and their equivalent sized RO systems at a membrane age of 0, 3, and 5 years.

Operating Pressure The PSI value for RO varies based on the membrane age and operating water temperature. As the membrane ages and the temperature varies throughout the seasons, the RO operating pressure increases accordingly. With CapDI, the PSI value stays consistent throughout the years irrespective of changes in water temperature. In this example, the data is produced using 50°F (10°C) water at 0, 3, and 5 year old RO systems.
