Q. "What is reverse osmosis filtration?"
A. A water filtration method used to remove most inorganic chemicals and suspended particulate from water. Water, under pressure, is forced through a semi-permeable membrane that removes molecules larger than the pores of the membrane.
Q. "What is a micron rating?"
A. The average size of the openings between pieces of the filter media are represented in microns. For example, a 40-micron filter has larger openings than a 5-micron filter. Consequently, the 40-micron filter element will let larger particles pass through the filter than the 5-micron element.
As a general rule, the smaller micron rating for a filter is better, but as with most everything, there is a trade-off. Flow capability usually drops off as the micron rating gets smaller. To overcome this, low micron-rating filters must have larger elements to keep from sacrificing precious flow.
