  • Why Is It Important to Buy RO Purifiers with Mineral RO Technology?

    Published on December 3, 2019

    With the scarcity of water affecting planet earth, drinking water is even more difficult to find. Water is laden with so many impurities that it has to pass through a water filter or purifier before it can be consumed. Various purification methods need to be used depending on the kind and quantity of contamination. Reverse Osmosis is one of the popularly used techniques for purification of water. It is essentially used to remove dissolved chemicals, including salts from the water.


    What Are the Essential and Non-Essential Minerals in Water?

    Minerals like Calcium and Magnesium are needed by the body, while other minerals like arsenic, heavy metals and fluorides are harmful to human health. These are present in the water and together constitute the TDS (Total Dissolved Solids).

    What Is Mineral RO Technology?

    The groundwater tends to have a large quantity of salts and harmful chemicals dissolved in water. The human body can, however, function only with certain levels of absorbed salts. While too much of salts can be harmful to the body, it tends to malfunction even if they are too less. Hence, it becomes important to be careful about what gets removed from water and what is retained. Some salts have to be retained in very small quantities, while for others, there is a greater requirement. The harmful heavy chemicals are a definite no-no for the body.

    Keeping all these in mind, Mineral RO technology, patented by KENT, plays a key role in the health and well-being of all humans.

    How Does It Work?

    Mineral RO technology works to maintain the levels of TDS within the range as prescribed by WHO and other authorised bodies within the country. Given the RO process, all the dissolved salts and chemicals are removed from the water bringing the TDS down to very low levels. This is not good for the human body as there are minimum requirements of several minerals that can be supplied to the body mainly through the water. After the RO process is over, the TDS controller present in the KENT water purifiers add these minerals back to water in a controlled manner.

    What Is the TDS Controller?

    This component of a water purifier does nothing to purify water in any way, but it still forms a major component of the purification system. What it essentially does to maintain the TDS levels in the water is combine the water from the UF membrane and RO membrane in a suitable ratio to ensure the correct levels of TDS as required by the health authorities. This component is a small device that performs probably one of the most important tasks in the process of getting you potable and healthy drinking water.

    A combination of Reverse Osmosis and TDS controller works towards providing healthy potable water to the users. This ensures that your body does not lose out on any of the essential minerals in the purification process. Considering the above explanation, it is evident why mineral RO technology is important and how it ensures purity and health for your family.
