DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE; REMOVE ANY CAUTION, WARNING,
OR OTHER DESCRIPTIVE LABELS FROM THE SYSTEM.
FEED WATER & OPERATION SPECIFICATIONS
Nothing has a greater effect on a reverse osmosis system than the feed water quality.
NOTE: IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MEET THE MINIMUM FEED WATER
REQUIREMENTS. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL CAUSE THE MEMBRANES TO FOUL
AND VOID THE MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY.
OPERATING LIMITS
NOTE: HIGHER TDS AND/OR LOWER TEMPERATURES WILL REDUCE THE
SYSTEM’S PRODUCTION.
REJECTION, RECOVERY, & FLOW RATES
GT-Series reverse osmosis systems are designed to produce permeate water at the
capacities indicated by the suffix in the system’s name under the conditions listed
above. For example, the GT-40000 produces 40000 gallons per day of permeate water
at the listed operating test conditions.
The amount of total dissolved solids (TDS) rejected by the membrane is expressed as a
percentage. For example, a 98.5% rejection rate means that 98.5% of total dissolved
5
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11
© 2011 AXEON Water Technologies
solids do not pass through the membrane. To calculate the % rejection, use the
following formula:
% Rejection = [(Feed TDS – Product TDS) / Feed TDS] x 100
Example:
98.5% = [(550-8.25)/550] x 100
NOTE: ALL TDS FIGURES MUST BE EXPRESSED IN THE SAME UNITS,
TYPICALLY PARTS PER MILLION (PPM) OR MILLIGRAMS PER LITER (MG/L).
GT-Series reverse osmosis systems are designed to reject up to 98.5% NaCl, unless
computer projections have been provided or stated otherwise.
The amount of permeate water recovered for use is expressed as a percentage. To
calculate % recovery, use the following formula:
% Recovery = (Product Water Flow Rate / Feed Water Flow Rate) x 100
Example:
60% = (20.83/35) x 100
NOTE: ALL FLOW RATES MUST BE EXPRESSED IN THE SAME UNITS,
TYPICALLY GALLONS PER MINUTE (GPM).
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS & OPERATION GUIDELINES
PLUMBING
The membranes and high pressure pumps used on GT-Series systems require a
continuous flow of water with a minimum feed pressure of 35 psi, not to exceed 105°F.
FEED WATER CONNECTION
1. Locate the 2” Flange feed water inlet on the bag filter housing.
(Figure 1A, Page 14)
2. Attach the inlet piping to the 2” Flange feed water inlet.
3. Be certain that all of the components of the feed water are soluble at the
concentrations attained in the system.
6
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11
© 2011 AXEON Water Technologies
NOTE: FEED LINE MUST BE MINIMUM 1-1/2” INCH.
PERMEATE (PRODUCT WATER) CONNECTION
Locate the 1-1/2” connection labeled permeate and attach to storage tank. Ensure that
the permeate water can flow freely with no backpressure. Backpressure can cause
irreversible damage to the membrane elements. The 1-1/2” permeate line can be run to
the holding tank with PVC fittings, or other FDA approved materials. This is so the
material being used does not dissolve into the permeate water.
CAUTION THE PH OF THE REVERSE OSMOSIS PERMEATE WATER WILL
TYPICALLY BE 1-2 POINTS LOWER THAN THE FEED WATER PH. A LOW PH CAN
BE VERY AGGRESSIVE TO SOME PLUMBING MATERIALS SUCH AS COPPER
PIPING.
CONCENTRATE (WASTE WATER) CONNECTION
Locate the 1-1/2” connection labeled concentrate and attach to a drain. Run the
concentrate line to an open drain in a free and unrestricted manner (no backpressure).
CAUTION: ANY RESTRICTIONS OR BLOCKAGE IN THE DRAIN LINE CAN
CAUSE BACKPRESSURE, WHICH WILL INCREASE THE SYSTEM’S OPERATING
PRESSURE. THIS CAN RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE SYSTEM’S MEMBRANES AND
COMPONENTS.
ELECTRICAL
The motor used on the GT-Series systems are pump and motor combination. The motor
is available in 220/380/460 Volt, 50/60 Hertz, 1 Phase/3 phase. Each GT-Series system
is equipped with a 5 foot electrical cord.
Ensure that the electrical circuit supplying the system is compatible with the
requirements of the specific GT model you are installing.
7
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11
© 2011 AXEON Water Technologies
NOTE: IT’S RECOMMENDED THAT A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN WIRE YOUR
SYSTEM IN ACCORDANCE WITH LOCAL AND NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODES
(NEC).
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, THE
INCOMING POWER SUPPLY MUST INCLUDE A PROTECTIVE EARTH GROUND.
GT-Series systems are typically controlled with a liquid level switch in a storage tank.
The liquid level switch turns the system on when the water level in the tank drops, and
off when the tank is full. Liquid level switches can be obtained by your local dealer or
distributor. If a liquid level switch is to be used, install it at this time.
PRE-FILTRATION
GT-Series systems are supplied with a 10 Micron Rosedale Bag Filter and a stainless
steel multi-cartridge filter which utilizes five 2.5” x 40” 5 Micron polypropylene sediment
filters. Change the cartridge once a month or when a 10-15 psi differential exists
between the pre-filter. Ask your local dealer or distributor about Pre-Filtration systems, if
required.
NOTE: THE SYSTEM MUST BE OPERATED ON FILTERED WATER ONLY.
PUMP
The pump type used on the GT-Series systems is vertical multi-stage stainless steel
pumps.
Follow these guidelines to ensure proper operation of the pump:
•
The pump must NEVER be run dry. Operating the pump without sufficient feed
water will damage the pump.
•
ALWAYS feed the pump with filtered water. The pump is susceptible to damage
from sediment and debris.
8
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11
© 2011 AXEON Water Technologies
•
If any damage occurs to your system’s pump a re-build kit may be available.
Contact your local dealer or distributor and inform them of your system’s model
and pump size.
MOUNTING
The free standing system should be bolted down in compliance with local regulation
standards or securely fastened.
MEMBRANE ELEMENTS
GT-Series reverse osmosis systems come pre-loaded with Thin Film Composite (TFC)
HF1 High Flow Low Energy membranes, unless otherwise specified. General
membrane element performance characteristics are listed on the next page.

OPERATING DO’s & DON’Ts
DO:
•
Change the cartridge filters regularly
•
Monitor the system and keep a daily log
•
Run the system, as much as possible, on a continuous basis.
•
Adjust the system recovery to the recommended value
•
Always feed the pump with filtered water.
DON’T
• Permit chlorine to enter or be present in the feed water.
•
Shut down the system for extended periods.
•
Close the throttle valve completely.
•
Operate the system with insufficient feed flow.
•
Operate the pump dry.
OPERATION & MAINTENANCE
The reverse osmosis process causes the concentration of impurities. The impurities
may precipitate (come out of solution) when their concentration reaches saturation
levels.
NOTE: PRECIPITATION CAN SCALE OR FOUL MEMBRANES AND MUST
BE PREVENTED.
Check your feed water chemistry and pre-treat the water and/or reduce the system’s
recovery as required. If necessary, consult with your local dealer or distributor.
22
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11

PRE-FILTER PRESSURE GAUGES
These gauges measure the feed water pressure when it enters and exits the pre-filters.
A pressure differential of 10 - 15 psi or more on the two pressure gauges indicates that
the pre-filters require servicing. For example, if the inlet pressure is 40 psi, the filter
should be changed when the outlet pressure is 30 psi or below.
PERMEATE (PRODUCT) FLOW METER & CONCENTRATE (WASTE) FLOW METER
These flow meters indicate the flow rates of the permeate and concentrate water. The
measurements, when added together, also indicate the feed water flow rate or (total
flow rate); if the system is not equipped with a concentrate recycle valve.
CAUTION: EXCESSIVE RECYCLING MAY CAUSE PREMATURE FOULING
OR SCALING OF THE MEMBRANE ELEMENTS.
LOW PRESSURE SWITCH
The low pressure switch shuts off the system when the feed water pressure drops
below 15 PSI, preventing damage to the pump. The system restarts automatically when
there is a constant pressure of 35 PSI or more.
If you notice the pressure fluctuating, and the system cycling off and on,
turn the system off and ensure that proper feed flow and pressure are available to
the system.
PUMP THROTTLE VALVE
This valve is installed as a standard feature on the GT-Series reverse osmosis systems.
It provides an adjustment for pump pressure, which will vary as the required system
pressure changes. As the feed water temperature decreases, and/or the feed water
TDS increases, the system will require a higher operating pressure to produce the
specified permeate flow. GT system installed in Florida may provide the specified
permeate flow of 20.83 gpm at 100 psi; however the same system installed in Maine –
much colder feed water – may require 150 psi to produce the same amount of
permeate. Never exceed 150 psi.

Example:
98.5% = [(550-8.25)/550] x 100

ADJUSTING THE THROTTLE VALVE
To decrease the pressure turn the handle clockwise. To increase the pressure turn the
handle counter clockwise. (Figure 3, Page 23)

MEMBRANE REMOVAL & REPLACEMENT
Replacing membranes in the pressure vessels is an easy process if you have the
proper information and tools at hand. Please refer to the following instructions when
removing and replacing membrane elements:
WARNING: ALL PRESSURE GAUGES MUST READ ZERO BEFORE
PROCEEDING. BEFORE ATTEMPTING, DISCONNECT THE POWER FROM THE
SYSTEM AND BLEED ALL WATER PRESSURE FROM THE SYSTEM.
1. Remove the end caps from the top of the membrane housings. This is done by
removing the white snap ring of the membrane housing.
2. Remove the membrane bag containing the membrane element from the shipping
box.
WEAR GLOVES FOR THE FOLLOWING STEPS IN ORDER NOT TO
CONTAMINATE THE MEMBRANE.
3. Cut the bag open as close as possible to the seal at the end of the bag, so the
bag may be re-used if necessary.
4. Make sure that all parts are clean and free from dirt. Examine the brine seal, and
permeate tube for nicks or cuts. Replace the O-rings or brine seal if damaged.
5. Flow directions should be observed for installation of each element into each
housing.
As time progresses, the efficiency of the membrane will be reduced. In general, the salt
rejection does not change significantly until two or three years after installation when
operated on properly pretreated feed water. The permeate flow rate will begin to decline
slightly after one year of operation, but can be extended with diligent flushing and
cleaning of the system. A high pH and/or precipitation of hardness can cause
premature loss in rejection.
REPLACING THE MEMBRANE ELEMENT:
WARNING: THE BRINE SEAL MUST BE IN THE SAME POSITION FOR
EACH MEMBRANE ELEMENT HOUSING, SO MARK EACH HOUSING PRIOR TO
REMOVING THE MEMBRANE ELEMENTS. THE BRINE SEAL IS A RUBBER SEAL
THAT PROTRUDES ON ONE SIDE OF THE MEMBRANE AND IS ALWAYS ON THE
FEED SIDE OF THE MEMBRANE ELEMENT.
25
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11
© 2011 AXEON Water Technologies
1. Remove one membrane element at a time from the membrane element
housings, from the top of the housing. Long nose pliers may be necessary to pull
the old membrane element out of the membrane element housing.
2. Lubricate the brine seal with non petroleum based lubricant, Silicone DC 111.
3. Install the brine seal side of the membrane element first. When the housings
have a direction of flow from bottom to top, the brine seal should be located at
the bottom of the housing.
4. At a slight angle insert the membrane while slightly rotating the element being
careful not to tear or flip the brine seal. A slow twisting motion should be used to
insert the membrane element, to ensure the brine seal stays in place. Re-lube
the brine seal if necessary.
5. With a smooth and constant motion, push the membrane element into the
housing so the brine seal enters the housing without coming out of the brine seal
groove.
6. Re-install the end caps by gently twisting the end cap while pushing it onto the
housing. Ensure that you do not pinch or fatigue any O-rings while re-installing
the end plug. Push the end plug on until the outer diameter of the plug is flush
with the outer diameter of the membrane housing.
7. Insert the snap ring until it is fully seated. Install the locking clip if available.
8. Reconnect any fittings that may have been disconnected when the membrane
element housings were disassembled.
9. To Start-Up the system, please refer to the Initial Start-Up section of this manual.
(See Page 19)
CAUTION: WET MEMBRANES ARE SHIPPED IN A PRESERVATIVE
SOLUTION. THE MEMBRANES MUST BE FLUSHED FOR AT LEAST 1 HOUR TO
REMOVE THE PRESERVATIVE FROM THE MEMBRANE. DISCARD ALL OF THE
PERMEATE AND CONCENTRATE, WHICH IS PRODUCED DURING THE FLUSH
PERIOD.
26
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11
© 2011 AXEON Water Technologies
FLUSHING THE SYSTEM
The system should be flushed weekly to remove sediment from the surface of the
membranes. To manually flush the system follow the preceding steps:
1. The system must be operating during the flush procedure.
2. Fully open the concentrate valve. (Figure 1A, Page 14)
3. Allow the system to run for 10 to 20 minutes.
4. After 10 to 20 minutes, close the concentrate valve to its previous setting. Ensure
the proper concentrate flow rate is going to the drain.
5. The system is now ready to operate.
PREPARING UNIT FOR STORAGE OR SHIPMENT
Prior to shipping or storing your system, the system should be cleaned with an
appropriate cleaner, flushed with water, and protected from biological attack with an
appropriate solution for membrane elements. The membrane housing(s) and plumbing
lines of the system must be completely drained. Any water remaining in the plumbing of
a system may freeze, causing serious damage.
Preparing system for storage:
1. Totally immerse the elements in the membrane housing in a solution of 2 %
Memstor, venting the air outside of the pressure vessels. Use the overflow
technique: circulate the Memstor solution in such a way that the remaining air in
the system is minimized after the recirculation is completed. After the pressure
vessel is filled, the Memstor solution should be allowed to overflow through an
opening located higher than the upper end of the highest pressure vessel being
filled.
2. Separate the preservation solution from the air outside by closing all valves. Any
contact with oxygen will oxidize the Memstor.
3. Check the pH once a week. When the pH becomes 3 or lower, change the
preservation solution.
4. Repeat this process at least once a month.
During the shutdown period, the plant must be kept frost-free, or the temperature must
not exceed 113°F (45°C).
Preparing unit for shipment:
27
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11
© 2011 AXEON Water Technologies
5. Disconnect the inlet, concentrate, pre-filter, and permeate plumbing.
6. Drain all water from the pre-filter cartridge housings by unscrewing the housings,
removing the pre-filter cartridges, and drain the water from the housings.
7. Disconnect the tubing from the connectors on the permeate and concentrate
inlets and outlets.
8. Fully open the concentrate valve.
9. Drain the flow meters.
10. Allow the system to drain for a minimum of eight hours or until the opened ports
quit dripping.
11. After draining is complete, reconnect all of the plumbing.

ABNORMAL PERMEATE FLOW
29
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11
© 2011 AXEON Water Technologies
Permeate flow should be within 20% of the rated production, after correcting the feed
water temperatures above or below 77°F. Check your permeate flow meter to
determine the permeate flow rate.
NOTE: TO DETERMINE THE TEMPERATURE CORRECTION FACTOR,
LOCATE THE TEMPERATURE CORRECTION TABLE IN THIS USER’S MANUAL
AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS
TEMPERATURE CORRECTION FACTORS FOR MEMBRANE
30
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11
© 2011 AXEON Water Technologies
Find the temperature correction factor (TCF) from the table below. Divide the rated
permeate flow at 77°F by the temperature correction factor. The result is the permeate
flow at the desired temperature. (See example on the next page)
31
ENGF-109 REV. A 01/11
© 2011 AXEON Water Technologies
If a system is rated to produce 5 gpm of permeate water @ 77˚ F. The same system will
produce more water at a higher temperature. It will also produce less water at a lower
temperature. Use the temperature correction table to obtain the correct flow.
Example:
5 gpm @ 59˚ F (5÷1.42=3.52 gpm)
5 gpm @ 77˚ F (5÷1=5 gpm)
5 gpm @ 84˚ F (5÷0.89=5.62 gpm)
