Inverse osmosis

Reverse osmosis is a filtration method that reduces the content of mineral salts in water down to their complete elimination; viruses and bacteria are also eliminated in the process. Special synthetic membranes are used to “sift” the water molecules by applying high differential pressures between the two sides of the membrane. MM uses this process to eliminate nitrates and hexavalent chromium. The water obtained from reverse osmosis is extremely pure and salt-free to the point that mixing with untreated water is required to restore the saline content suitable for human use.
