Figure 2-67. R.O. Pressure and Product Water Flow Gages
Slowly adjust REGULATE PRODUCT FLOW valve (3) to the right. Watch for an increase in PRODUCT
WATER FLOW gage (2), a decreased flow in BRINE FLOW gage (4), and increased pressure in the R.O. PRESSURE
PSI gage (5).
PRODUCT WATER FLOW should not exceed 12 gpm for seawater
conditions, 16 gpm for fresh or brackish water. R.O. PRESSURE PSI
gage should not exceed 960 psi (seawater), 500 (fresh or brackish
water). If gage readings exceed these limits, refer to Section II, Chapter
Figure 2-68. Product Water Flow Gages And Pressure
Close REGULATE PRODUCT FLOW valve very slowly. Watch gages until you obtain proper balance shown
in Table 2-4.
