With ECONNECT functionality, system maintenance becomes easier and more effective!
A history of system maintenance and operation in the personal web dashboard will allow the most efficient and timely replacement of filters, chemical cleaning of membranes and other system maintenance routines.
● Replace the sediment filters — at least once every 3 months.
The sediment filter protects the RO membrane from large impurities such as sand, clay particles, etc. With the ECONNECT function you will always know when to replace them. Now your membrane element and system will last much longer.
● Carry out chemical cleaning of the RO membrane — at least twice a year.
CIP should be carried out in case of deteriorating purified water quality or capacity reduction, which you can observe in the personal web dashboard. CIP is carried out by using a chemical cleaning unit and cleaning chemicals.
You don't need to keep a system maintenance log any more!
Timely maintenance expands the lifetime of the equipment, but also provides pure and safe water of the highest quality.

PROCESS FLOW DIAGRAM
Feed water goes through sediment prefilters to remove particles less than 5 microns. High pressure pump feeds the prefiltered water into the membrane array. Inside the membranes, feed water is separated into purified water (permeate) and brine with retained impurities (concentrate). Ecosoft RO systems feature built-in concentrate recycle, sending part of the concentrate back to the pump.
If using antiscalant for hard water then it is injected before the prefilters, so the chemical is mixed with water more thoroughly.
Demineralized water (permeate) is collected in a tank with level sensor, which turns off the unit when the tank is full. Before shutdown or at specified intervals, the installation is automatically rinsed with feed water. This mode is called the hydraulic flushing. The system requires a short-term (for 1-2 minutes) water supply exceeding the supply in the operating mode.
The unit is equipped with an OC6000 controller with the following functionality:
automatic switching on and off of the equipment upon signal from the level sensor in the permeate collector or pressure in the permeate line with preliminary hydraulic flushing;
emergency shutdown of the equipment by signals from dry-running sensors, overpressure in the module;
shutdown of equipment on the external STOP signal;
hydraulic flushing of membranes;
permanent quality control (electrical conductivity and temperature) of permeate.
Sediment filters protect the membrane from large impurities such as sand, clay particles, etc. Failure to replace the filters in due time can damage or destroy the membrane. In order to avoid such critical situations, we recommend changing the filter at least once every 3 months.
In case of worsening quality of the treated water or a decrease in productivity, it is necessary to conduct chemical cleaning of the RO membrane with a CIP-station and special reagents. To obtain purified water of high quality, we recommend chemical cleaning at least twice a year.
If you do not plan to use the system for a long time, it is necessary to shut off the water supply to the system, and soak the membrane elements in a special preservative solution - this will keep the membranes working when the equipment is not in use.
You don't need to keep a system maintenance log any more! All information is available online.
Carefully read the instruction before operating the unit.
Only use piping of equal or larger diameter than the RO system's inlet and outlet ports (indicated in the specification)
Membranes are shipped in original packaging and must be installed before operating the system. O-ring seals on the membranes must be on the feed water side of the pressure vessel.
Remove plastic wraps from filters before installing them in pre-filter housings.
Make sure feed water is supplied to the system at required pressure before starting up the system.
Check Lovato protection relay when connecting power to the cabinet. Red light or flashing green light signals phase failure or abnormal voltage conditions as per instruction.
Do not use brass, iron, or copper pipe for permeate plumbing.
During first run, concentrate flow rate, recycle flow rate, and the operating pressure must be adjusted with the flow control valves.
The operating pressure must not exceed 12 bar. The ratio of permeate flow rate to drain flow rate must not exceed 0.75 (75 %).
Permeate obtained within the first hour after the installation of new or regenerated membrane elements must be discharged into the sewer.
It is advisable to supply influent water using a feed water tank and pump, and to deliver permeate using permeate tank and pump.
