Food & Beverage Reverse Osmosis (RO) Guide & Calculator

How do you size food & beverage (F&B) reverse osmosis (RO)? The F&B RO calculations below can be used as a guide for ultrapure hot sanitizable Food and Beverage Water Reverse Osmosis System sizing.

For critical food & beverage processes, reverse osmosis equipment can use FRP housing along with stainless steel (304, 316, 316L) to provide industrial reverse osmosis benefits. Applications that need to be sanitized with a heat process are better suited for stainless steel food & beverage reverse osmosis housings. F&B reverse osmosis systems are also ideal for dairy and other high purity and UPW applications (see the dairy reverse osmosis (RO) water guide and calculator).

Several variables are important when sizing ultrapure reverse osmosis (RO) that are beyond the scope of the specialized food & beverage (F&B) reverse osmosis guide and calculator below. Water pressure, water chemistry, temperature and system feed flow rate are all variables that have effects on food & beverage (F&B) reverse osmosis sizing and are not considered. These F&B calculators below are used for quick estimating size, footprints & general design of ultrapure water reverse osmosis systems in the food and beverage industry.

For more detail on food and beverage water reverse osmosis sizing including configurations (e.g. single, twin, triple or special multiple skid configurations), control types (Allen Bradley, Siemens, GE PLC, additive or progressive flow) or specific specifications like (316, 316L, 304) stainless steel or specific valve & instrument types, it is important that you email or call Industrial Water Solutions at 800-820-9021.
