- Nano technology
Nano technology is a breakthrough in terms of engineering in the 21st century. Nano is a unit of measure = 1 / billionth of a meter. Nano technology helps people to bring materials to the nano size. Various applications of the material will become simpler and more effective in nano size. For examples, ink particles on the nano color printer make the process much more stable for printing, ink saving and avoiding dirt and clogging situation. Or nanonizing silver to be an antibacteria material gives us suprisingly amazing result. As we know, silver is used to make jewelry, food container (for perishable foods). Making silver into nanoscale helps saving much more because of more silver particles and larger contact area, and it especially effective for disintection.
- Nano filter
Technically, producing nanoscale filters is a big step forward in terms of technology. Gaps of filter are only 1/billion of a meter, filtering result will be excellent. Not a bacterium or a virus can penetrate through the filter. However, a simple question is with 1/billion size of a gap, how long would it take the filter to be clogged?
People use nanoscale materials in order to increase the absorption of minerals or for disinfection.
At this size, because the number of filter particles (in molecules size) will be more than many, many times the normal particle size of filter … Thus, result of minerals adsorbing or disinfection will be efficiency. Above is some basic information about nano and nano technology to differentiate clearly in terms of technology.
- Reverse Osmosis System filter
Regarding size, Reverse Osmosis filter in RO System water purifier is considered as another type of nanoscale filter. The difference is water flowing on surface of the filter. Pure water which has smaller size will absorb to the other side and the rest which contains bacteria and virus, minerals whith bigger size will be kept and gotten rid. The clogged situation will never happen. This is the limited overcoming for nano filter.
- The difference of two filters
Filtering is a process of removing particulate matter from water by forcing the water to pass through a filter of water filtration. Filter materials can be solid materials in nature such as sand, gravel, clay or from different materials. Sometimes, large sediment particles will be deposited before the last filtration process. The size of the sediment particles are removed during the refining process depends on the pore size of the filter material. RO technology is an emerging technology because it is designed to suit the specific requirements for the product. Until now, Reverse Osmosis System technology has almost met all the requirements of applications which are removing mosquitos, oil… RO filter is still the best for filtration, next is nano filter, ultra filter and the last is membranes filter. For different applications, sometimes it is often used in combination with other types of filters to increase the purity of output water. The following chart summarizes the sediment removal efficiency for various types of filters.
