Introduction

Reverse osmosis systems from

Crane Environmental produce high quality water from municipal and well water. The highest quality components and the latest technology is used in the production and design of our reverse osmosis systems.

What is reverse osmosis?

While ordinary filters use a screen to separate particles from water streams, a reverse osmosis system uses a semi-permeable membrane to separate a high percentage of dissolved molecules. Only certain types of molecules, like water, can pass through the membrane. Other molecules, like salts, do not pass through the membrane and are left behind.

What is a semi-permeable membrane?

A semi-permeable membrane is very similar to your skin. The membrane is made of thin, multi-layered sheets with microscopic pores that let water pass through while acting as a barrier to stop dissolved particles like salt.

THE REVERSE OSMOSIS MEMBRANE ELEMENT

CONCENTRATE WATER containing salts is rejected by the membrane and does not enter the product tube. The concentrate water exits the side of the element opposite of the feed.

RAW WATER FEED enters into membrane layers. Applied pressure forces raw water across membrane layers into the product tube.

Product tube

PRODUCT WATER collects in the product tube and can be output from either end of the membrane element.

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 2 of 55

How does osmosis and reverse osmosis work?

Fig. 1A: OSMOSIS

MEMBRANE

When the applied pressure equals the osmotic pressure, the water flow stops. When applied pressure exceeds the osmotic pressure, reverse osmosis will take place. In reverse osmosis, water passes through the membrane to the dilute solution, leaving behind dissolved particles. This process purifies the water, often reducing total dissolved solids content by 99%.

As shown in Figure 1A, under normal pressure water will pass from the side of the membrane with lower concentration to the side with the higher concentration to reach equilibrium, below.

Osmotic Pressure is the pressure required to stop water flow and reach equilibrium.

WATER

BRINE WATER

Crane Environmental systems use semi-permeable spiral wound, thin film membranes to separate and remove dissolved solids, organic material, pyrogens, submicron colloidal matter, viruses, and bacteria from water. Feed water is delivered under pressure to the membranes, where reverse osmosis takes place.

Water permeates the minute pores of the membrane and is delivered as purified product water. The impurities in the water do not pass through the membrane, and are instead concentrated in the reject stream that is flushed to the drain.

Fig. 2B: Reverse Osmosis System

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 4 of 55

Specifications

The basic EPRO unit is designed to produce purified water at the capacities indicated by the suffix in the model number under the following conditions: water temp

77ºF (25ºC) and a total dissolved solid (TDS) of 500 ppm or less. For example, the EPRO-1200 produces

1200 gallons per day (GPD) or

4,542 liters per day (LPD) of purified water.

In addition to the standard models the EPRO models are offered in the following variations:

The "P" series EPRO systems are reverse osmosis systems that deliver purified water to a pressurized storage tank. The product water is typically stored in the pressurized tank at 20-40 psi and is distributed with tank pressure.

The "A” series EPRO systems are reverse osmosis systems that feed permeate to a 65 gallon atmospheric storage tank and distribute the permeate with a small dispensing pump.

The "XP" series EPRO systems are modular systems with a reverse osmosis unit, a 300-gallon atmospheric storage tank, a liquid level control, and a repressurization system. A variety of storage tanks and re-pressurization systems are available.

The "WM" series are reverse osmosis systems suitable for wall- mounted installation to save floor space.

REJECTION AND RECOVERY

The amount of total dissolved solids

(TDS) rejected by the membrane is expressed as a percentage. For example, a 96% rejection rate means that 96% of total dissolved solids do not pass through the membrane. To calculate the % rejection, use the following formula:

NOTE:

All TDS figures must be expressed in the same units, usually parts per million (ppm) or milligrams per liter (mg/l).

The amount of purified water recovered for use is expressed as a percentage of the feed water, and is called percent recovery. To calculate

% recovery, use the following formula:

NOTE:

All Flow Rates must be expressed in the same units, usually gallons per minute (gpm).

Table 1 on page 6 lists specifications for EPRO–150 though 1200 models.

Table 2 on page 7 lists specifications for EPRO-1500 through 8000.

System Requirements

& Operation Guidelines

PLUMBING

The membranes and high-pressure pumps used on the EPRO systems require a continuous and nonturbulent flow of water to the unit.

Minimum feed pressure is 20 PSI.

See the tables on pages 6 - 7 to determine your systems required flow.

The tubing or piping used for discharge of the concentrate should be run to an open drain in a free and unrestricted manner.

Any restrictions or blockage in the drain can cause backpressure, which will increase the system’s operating pressure. This can result in damage to system components.

Temperature of the feed water must not exceed 113º F (45º C).

ELECTRICAL

All motors on the EPRO-150 through the 1200 are single-phase, open drip type. The standard motors are 60 and 50 Hz. The voltage will be either

115VAC or 230VAC for the 60 motors, or 220VAC for the 50 Hz motors.

The motors on the EPRO-1500 through the 8000 are pump/motor combinations. They are available single-phase: 115VAC or 230VAC at

60 Hz or 220VAC at 50 Hz. The three phases are available in 230-

460VAC at 60Hz or 220-380VAC at

50 Hz.

Ensure that the electrical circuit supplying the system is compatible with the requirements of the specific

EPRO model.

Note:

We recommend that a licensed electrician install your unit in accordance with local and national electrical codes.

Each EPRO system, excluding the

EPRO-4500, the EPRO-8000 and all three-phase units, is equipped with a

10 foot electrical cord. Typical units do not require any additional wiring for installation. 50 Hz models may require replacement of the standard plug to fit certain receptacles.

PRE-FILTRATION

EPRO systems are supplied with a particulate pre-filter that filters out most particles over 5 microns in size before the water is pumped through the reverse osmosis membrane.

Change the cartridge at least every month or whenever there is a pressure difference of 10% or more between the pressure readings before and after the filter, if pressure gauges are installed.

CAUTION:

If the pre-filter becomes clogged and the water flow to the pump is reduced or

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 8 of 55

interrupted, cavitation will occur. This will damage the pump.

PUMP

The pumps supplied with EPRO-150 to 1200 systems are positive displacement, rotary vane type. The pumps supplied with the EPRO-1500 to 8000 are multi-stage, centrifugal pumps.

Follow these guidelines for proper operation of both pumps:

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 rotary vane type pump is especially susceptible to damage from sediment and debris.

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 9 of 55

Feed Water Requirements

Nothing has a greater effect on a

Reverse Osmosis System than the feed water quality. For lasting performance it is important to supply the reverse osmosis system with the feed water quality shown below on

Table 3. It is also important to feed the system the required amount of feed water, shown on Table 1 on page 6, and Table 2 on page 7.

INSTALLATION

The EPRO reverse osmosis systems, with the exception of the wall-mounted units, are free standing and require no special installation; however, if placed on an uneven floor, the system may vibrate. If this occurs, place the system on a rubber mat to reduce the vibrations. For wall-mounted units, attach the system to the wall securely

(hardware not provided). Additional instructions for “XP” series installation are provided on page 18 and 19.

Carefully

inspect your system before start-up. Check all plumbing and electrical connections. Connections may have loosened during shipment.

The following hoses are shipped loose to assist in installation:

A 10’ clear braided inlet hose.

A 10’ poly tube permeate hose.

A 10’ poly tube concentrate hose.

START-UP

The 5-micron filter cartridge is shipped separate from it’s housing.

Steps 1-6 cover installation of this filter.

1. Locate the 5-micron pre-filter housing (FIG. 4 or pointer 1 on the picture or diagram of your EPRO system). Unscrew the filter housing. If necessary, use a spanner wrench (not provided).

Note:

Water may spill from the unit when the housing is removed. Place a bucket below the housing to catch the water.

2. Remove the rubber O-ring from the groove located below the threaded part of the housing.

Remove any dirt and old lubricant with a clean rag.

3. Inspect the inside of the housing for debris and rinse with water, if necessary.

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 11 of 55

4. Lubricate the rubber O-ring with a food grade O-ring lubricant and place in the groove of the housing.

5. Locate the 5 micron pre-filter cartridge provided with the package. Remove the wrapping from the cartridge and insert it into the housing. Screw the housing onto the cap hand tight.

6. Locate the feed water inlet on the pre-filter housing (pointer 2 on the drawing or picture of your system).

7. Attach the provided inlet hose to the feed water inlet, or permanently plumb the feed water piping or tubing to the inlet.

ALWAYS

maintain a smooth and sufficient flow of feed water during operation.

8. Locate the permeate outlet.

(Pointer 3 on the picture or diagram of your EPRO system)

9. Attach the permeate hose to the permeate outlet. (Note: the “P” series systems have a check valve installed in the permeate line between the membrane and the bladder tank). Make sure that permeate water can flow freely and that there is no backpressure .

Backpressure can cause damage to the membrane.

CAUTION

:

the plumbing in the permeate line can contaminate the high quality water produced by the

EPRO system; ensure that the components are compatible with the application. The pH of the RO permeate will normally be 1-2 points lower than the feed water pH. A pH of 6.5 or lower can be very aggressive to some plumbing materials, such as copper piping.

Locate the concentrate (waste) outlet (pointer 4 on the picture or diagram of your EPRO system).

For the “P” series systems: The concentrate outlet is located behind the control panel. Unscrew the top panel. Locate the concentrate outlet on the drain side of the concentrate control valve (see pointer 4 on FIG. 3 and

4).

11. Attach, the clear drain hose to the concentrate outlet.

12.

Run the concentrate line to drain.

Water must be allowed to run freely, without any restrictions or blockage in the drain line.

Make sure that

NO

backpressure exists on the concentrate line

.

13. Ensure that the electrical power requirements of the EPRO system match your electrical power supply.

CAUTION:

Consult a qualified electrician for proper start-up of your three-phase motor. When connecting a three-phase motor, always check for proper direction of rotation.

Incorrect rotation will damage the pump and void the warranty.

14. EPRO systems are typically controlled with a liquid level switch in a storage tank. The liquid level switch turns the EPRO system on when the water level in the tank drops, and off when the tank is

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 12 of 55

full. If your RO system is equipped with an electrical control box, the level control is connected to the level control connections in the control box (see electrical diagrams provided). If your RO system is not equipped with a control box, plug the level control into your power outlet, then plug the RO power cord into the level control .

DO NOT

exceed the level control’s power rating.

Liquid level switches can be obtained from Crane Environmental or a plumbing supplier. A liquid level switch is standard with the "XP" system.

If a liquid level switch is to be used, install it at this time and turn the power to the EPRO system on.

Otherwise, turn the system on by plugging in the power cord. Allow the system to run for about three to five minutes with the concentrate control valve fully open to purge air from the system.

15.

IMPORTANT:

The EPRO machine contains a preservative solution that can be harmful if digested. Discard the product and concentrate water from the first one (1) hour of operation.

Turn the concentrate control valve until the concentrate pressure gauge indicates a pressure of 50 psi.

Flush the machine at 50 psi for one

(1) hour to remove the preservative from the system. Check for leaks.

All Crane Environmental reverse osmosis systems are fully tested prior to shipment, but leaks may occur due to shipping.

16.

AFTER

the preservative solution has been flushed out of the system, connect the permeate line to the point-of-use. Make sure no backpressure exists on the permeate line.

Locate the concentrate control valve (Pointer 5 on Fig. 3 and 4) and the concentrate pressure gauge (Pointer 6 on Fig. 3 and 4).

18. Turn the concentrate control valve until the designated permeate flow is acquired. For example an

EPRO-150 should be adjusted until it produces about 150 GPD or 0.10

GPM of permeate flow. The concentrate pressure will increase as the concentrate control valve is closed. The exact operating pressure may vary depending on the temperature and TDS of your feed water. It may be necessary to re-adjust the system if there is a major change in feed water temperature and/or TDS.

WARNING:

Never exceed the maximum pressure rating of your membrane or pressure vessel.

NOTE:

The EPRO 1500-8000

Reverse Osmosis Systems are equipped with a pump discharge throttle valve. This valve is used to adjust the Reverse Osmosis system to the desired recovery. For information about the pump throttle valve, refer to page 25.

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 13 of 55

Feed water enters the system through an automatic shut-off valve.

Ensure that the valve opens when the system turns on, allowing water flow through the system, and closes when the system turns off, stopping water flow through the system. This will save water and prevent premature fouling of the reverse osmosis membrane.

CHECKLIST:

1) RO system

2) Atmospheric Tank

3) Re-pressurization System

4) Suction Tube Assembly

5) Liquid Level Control (Float Switch)

1. Storage Tank Preparation:

Plumb the RO permeate line to the storage tank. A white nylon compression fitting is supplied with the permeate line.

Fasten this fitting to the storage tank in the hole in top of the tank by:

(a) Removing the compression fitting and hex nut from one side,

(b) Sliding the threads through the hole in the tank, and

(c) Reattaching and tightening the hex nut from inside the tank.

Attach the permeate line to the compression fitting on the RO machine.

Attach the other end of the permeate line the bulkhead fitting at the bottom of the storage tank. Use Teflon tape to prevent leaking.

Plumb from the storage tank suction tube to the inlet (nose cone) on the repressurization pump. Make sure that the check valve is pointing in the direction of the water flow.

3. Connect the line from the repressurization system to the point of use:

This will be from the cross fitting on the bottom of the pressure tank piping.

4a. Level Control (Solo Float, standard):

The cord from the solo float must be secured inside the storage tank at a pivot point between the desired high and low level. Adjust the differential between high or low level by changing the length of the cord between the pivot and float. Adjust the high and low levels by moving the pivot point up or down. to the newly installed compression fitting on the storage tank.

2. Connect the atmospheric storage tank to the re-pressurization system:

Use the suction tube assembly supplied.

Some connections on the suction tube assembly are not glued to facilitate assembly. Remove the male adaptor that is near the ball valve on the suction tube assembly. Thread the male adaptor into

4b. Level Control (Ball and Rod, optional on XP system):

Mount the level control onto the storage tank through diagonal holes using the attached stainless steel fasteners.

Remove the setscrew from the brass collar on the float switch shaft. Make a single vertical slit in the 1” diameter float arm screen. From the inside of the tank, slip the float arm through the slit then attach the float arm to the brass collar.

Slide the brass collar onto the shaft of the float switch and tighten securely using the float rod as the setscrew.

Attach the float ball to the unattached end of the float arm. Adjust the float arm so that the top of the float ball doesn't

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 18 of 55

rise above the lowest point of the bottom of the switch. Refer to Figure 5.

7. Priming:

After the storage tank is filled, the repressurization system must be primed and started. Prime the pump by removing

5. Electrical Connection:

Make sure water is available to the reverse osmosis system before making this connection because this will start the

RO machine. Insert the EPRO system the pressure gauge and pouring water into the pump. Reinstall the pressure gauge in the fitting. Move the lever on the side of the pressure switch to the

“START” position. Open the drain valve male plug into the float switch female connector. Insert the float switch male plug to a power source. This will start the

RO system when the float switch is in the down position.

NOTE:

Male plugs are supplied with 10' of lead. Extension cords are not recommended. If a longer wire run is required, please retain a qualified electrician.

6.

Up:

Re-pressurization System Start-

With an air pressure gauge, insure that slightly to allow air to escape during start up. This is located at the bottom of the pressure tank. Close after start up. After the unit is primed, and the unit begins to pump, hold the lever on "START' until pressure reaches 30 psi. Operation from this point on is automatic. If the pump the bladder tank pre-charge is set 2 psi below the cut in pressure (see example below).

Example:

Operating Pressure Range

Operation & Maintenance

Reverse osmosis causes the concentration of impurities in the concentrate stream to increase. The impurities may precipitate (come out of solution) when their concentration reaches saturation levels.

Precipitation can scale or foul membranes and must be prevented.

Check your feed water chemistry. Pre-treat the water and/or reduce the system recovery as required. If necessary, consult with a

Crane Environmental service representative for pre-treatment recommendations.

OPERATION OF OPTIONAL

FEATURES

Prefilter Pressure Gauges:

These gauges measure the feed water pressure when it enters and exits the pre-filter housing. A pressure differential of 10 % or more on the two pressure readings indicates that the pre-filter needs to be replaced. For example, if inlet pressure is 40 psi, the filter should be changed when the outlet pressure is 36 psi or below.

Product Water (Permeate)

Flow Meter (pointer 8 on FIG. 3 and 4) and Waste Water

(Concentrate) Flow Meter

(pointer 7 on FIG. 3 and 4):

These flow meters indicate the flow rates of permeate and concentrate water. The measurements, when added together, also indicate the feed water flow rate, if the system is not equipped with waste recycle.

Waste Recycle Valve (pointer

9 on FIG. 3 and 4):

This valve allows you to recycle some of the concentrate water back to the feed of the pump. This will increase the recovery of the EPRO system. An optional waste recycle flow meter allows you to measure how much concentrate is recycled.

THE AMOUNT OF WASTE WATER

RECYCLED IS LIMITED BY THE

TDS OF THE FEED WATER.

CAUTION:

Excessive recycling may cause premature fouling or scaling of the membrane.

Low Pressure Reverse Action

Switch (normally offered on the EPRO-150 to 1200):

The reverse action switch shuts off the EPRO system when the feed water pressure drops too low for the system to function properly. This prevents damage to the pump. The system restarts automatically when pressure is restored. If you notice the pressure fluctuating, and the system cycling off and on repeatedly, turn the system off and ensure that proper feed flow and pressure are available to the system.

Low Pressure Shut-Off

Control Box (normally offered on the EPRO-1500 to 8000):

This option consists of an electrical control box with a low-pressure protection circuit, level control connections, pre-treat lockout connections, and an on/off switch.

The low-pressure shut-off switch can be ordered with manual or automatic reset.

Automatic Fast Flush

:

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 23 of 55

The automatic fast flush option bypasses the concentrate control valve, reducing the concentrate pressure and increasing the flow of feed water across the membrane.

The fast flush removes foulants that may have attached to the surface of the membrane. By removing these foulants before they crystallize on

5. For high recovery applications

(use of a recycle valve), consider using auto flush.

6. For systems that may remain inoperative for long periods of time, a fast flush should be installed. The automatic fast flush will not operate if the electrical the surface of the membrane, the system can operate longer without cleaning and/or replacing membranes. Crane Environmental recommends the use of the automatic fast flush in several instances:

When injecting antiscalant power is removed from the system.

The auto flush option includes a timer with two adjustable settings that regulate its operation. One timer setting allows you to set the interval between flushing, and the other timer setting allows you to set the length of the flush time. The timer is preset at chemicals. These chemicals keep scaling ions in solution up to a higher concentration so the ions don’t precipitate, and scale the the factory to initiate a 5-minute flush every 10 hours. This is based on the time the system has electrical power membrane. If the solubility concentration is exceeded, the ions may precipitate and scale the membrane.

2. For feed water with a high scaling potential (hard water) in addition to automatic fast flush, pre-treat the water with an antiscalant or a softener. Do not use the automatic fast flush instead of pretreatment. applied.

In the fast flush conditions the water flushes across the membrane in the same direction as water flows in normal operation; this is not a

“backwash” flow.

3. Where minimal maintenance is important, an auto flush can increase the time between membrane cleaning.

4. For high TDS (total dissolved solids) applications where the

TDS exceeds 500 ppm, consider installing an auto flush.

NOTE:

Some permeate will be produced during the automatic fast flush; therefore, an overflow for the permeate storage tank is recommended.

Pump Throttle Valve

(pointer 15 on Fig. 4)

This valve is installed as a standard feature on all EPRO – 1500 through

EPRO – 8000 reverse osmosis systems. It provides an adjustment for pump flow, which will vary as the required system pressure changes.

To understand this concept, please refer to the pump curves in figure 10.

Note that with a centrifugal pump, the pump flow decreases as the operating pressure increases.

Example:

PRESSURE 1 HP

120 psi

150 psi

180 psi

10.5 gpm

8 gpm

4 gpm

1.5 HP

12 gpm

10.5 gpm

8 gpm

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. An EPRO-1500 installed in

Florida may provide the specified permeate flow of 1 gpm at 130 psi; however, the same EPRO-1500 installed in Maine – much colder feed water – may require 190psi to produce this same amount of permeate. The Florida system would have higher concentrate flow to drain because of the lower operating pressure, which would result in poor system recovery.

Figure 10: Pump Curves

The pump throttle valve can be adjusted to the desired system recovery for applications that fit the system specifications.

Membrane Cleaning

Periodic cleaning of the membrane(s) can improve system performance. In normal operation, mineral scale, biological matter, colloidal particles, and organic substances can foul the membranes

WARNING:

Cleaning chemicals are dangerous and can cause injury and damage to the environment. Read and comply with all safety and disposal precautions listed on the

Material Safety Data Sheets

(MSDS’s). It is the user’s responsibility to comply with all applicable federal, state, and local regulations.

Crane Environmental manufactures a complete line of membrane cleaning stations that can be used to clean membranes; however, if a cleaning station is not available, the membrane can be cleaned using the

EPRO system.

INORGANIC FOULANT CLEANING

Use an acid cleaning solution to remove inorganic salts such as

CaCO3, CaSO4, BaSO4 and metal oxides (i.e., iron) from reverse osmosis membranes. Do not use sulfuric acid because it may cause calcium sulfate to precipitate on the membrane(s).

Crane Environmental Cleaning

Solution #3 (1 lb. per 15 gal. of

RO water).

A solution of 0.2% hydrochloric acid (HCl),

A solution of 0.5% phosphoric acid (H3PO4),

A solution of 0.2% sulfamic acid

(NH2SO3H), or

A solution of 1.0% sodium hydrosulfite (Na2S2O4)

The solution will be most effective if maintained at 95°F (35°C). The pH of the solution should be around 2 -

3 pH.

ORGANIC FOULANT CLEANING

Use an alkaline cleaning solution to remove silica, biofilms, and organics from reverse osmosis membranes.

Acceptable cleaning solutions (all composition given by weight):

Crane Environmental Cleaning

Solution #2 (8 oz. for every 15 gallons of RO water).

Acceptable cleaning solutions (all compositions given by weight):

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 27 of 55

A solution of 0.1% sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and 0.1% of tetra-sodium salt of ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (Na-

EDTA)

A solution of 0.1% sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and 0.05% sodium salt of dodecyl-sulfate

(Na-DDS),

A solution of 1.0% sodium triphosphate (STP) and 1.0% trisodium phosphate (TSP) and

1.0% Na-EDTA.

The pH of the solution should be approximately 11 - 12. The temperature of the solution should not exceed 86°F (30°C).

MEMBRANE CLEANING

DIRECTIONS

These directions describe how the membranes can be cleaned using the EPRO system. If a cleaning station is used, please follow the directions in the cleaning station operating and maintenance manual.

1. Record the amount and TDS of the permeate with the system set at normal operating pressure.

2. Prepare about 15 gallons of the inorganic cleaning solution

(approx. a pH of 2 - 3) in a polypropylene or fiberglass reinforced plastic tank with a removable cover. Use RO water if possible.

3. Connect a hose from the cleaning solution tank to the inlet of the pre-filter (pointer 2 on FIG. 3 and

4) from the cleaning solution tank.

Ensure a flooded inlet to the pump or positive feed pressure.

4. Feed the permeate and the drain tubes back to the cleaning solution tank so that the solution will re-circulate during cleaning.

5. Turn on the reverse osmosis pump. Adjust the concentrate control valve (drain restrictor)

(pointer 5 on FIG. 3 and 4) to a concentrate pressure of 50 psi.

Run the pump for about 30 minutes or longer. reconnect to the feed water supply.

7. Turn the machine on and flush at

50 psi for 15 minutes or longer.

Discard all of the permeate and concentrate water.

8. Adjust the system to normal operating pressure and record the amount and TDS of the permeate water after the acid cleaning to assess any improvements in the system's performance.

9. Repeat this procedure for the organic cleaning solution (with a pH from 11 to 12). pressure to original operating pressure for normal operation.

After the cleaning procedure is complete, check the amount and

TDS of the permeate to evaluate the effectiveness of the cleaning process.

MEMBRANE REMOVAL AND

REPLACEMENT

Changing membranes in pressure vessels is easy with the proper tools.

The pressure vessel may have to be removed from the system. Please refer to Figure 11 and 12 on page 30 when following these instructions:

1. Remove the hoses and fittings from both ends of the pressure vessel.

2. Remove the pins holding the end plugs in the PVC vessel. Note:

Most fiberglass pressure vessels use a snap ring to hold the plug in place. Use properly sized snap ring pliers to safely remove the snap ring.

3. Thread a nipple and tee into the feed or concentrate port. The nipple must extend past the end of the pressure vessel.

4. Pry off both end plugs using a pry bar. WARNING: Do not pry directly on the edge of the pressure vessel, damage may occur. We recommend using either a ball joint separator, also called a "pickle fork," which is an automotive tool, or a slide hammer (see page 30 for examples of these tools). Remove any fittings used to extract the end plugs.

5. Remove the membrane from the pressure vessel, noting which side the brine seal is on.

Note:

ALWAYS remove and replace the membrane in the direction of the feed flow. This protects the brine seal from folding over. The brine seal should ALWAYS be on the feed side of your membrane.

Do not pull the membrane out using the permeate port as this may cause damage.

6. Replace the membrane. Always feed the new membrane into the feed end of the pressure vessel.

Feed the membrane in the direction of water flow. Failure to do so may cause damage to the brine seal. Make sure the brine seal is on the feed end of the pressure vessel.

7. Replace any damaged O-rings.

Lubricate the plug and O-rings with a food grade lubricant.

Do not use a petroleum based lubricant or silicone.

8. Tap the plug securely into place using a piece of soft wood or a rubber mallet.

9. Ensure that the backing plates on fiberglass pressure vessels are installed between the end plugs and the snap rings.

10. Replace the retaining pins on the

PVC pressure vessels. On fiberglass pressure vessels that use snap rings, insert the snap ring back into its groove.

Reattach the fittings into each plug.

CAUTION:

New or factory cleaned membranes are shipped in a preservative solution. With a new membrane, flush the system at 50 psi for at least 1 hour to remove the preservative from the membrane.

Discard all permeate and concentrate produced during the flush.

Troubleshooting

If the system production declines or the unit stops working, check the mechanical components for any visual problems. Listed below are the items to check for two of the most commonly encountered problem conditions: LOW SYSTEM

PRESSURE and ABNORMAL

PERMEATE FLOW. Also refer to the

RO troubleshooting matrix on page

37.

LOW SYSTEM PRESSURE

system is not equipped with these gauges, examine the pre-filter cartridge to make sure that it is not clogged and does not restrict feed flow to the pump. Replace, if necessary.

3. LOW FEED WATER FLOW

RATE:

Determine that the unit is getting a sufficient volume of feed water.

Disconnect the feed water hose from the machine and place it in a onegallon bucket. Measure the time it takes to fill the bucket to determine the feed flow. (Feed flow is measured in gallons per minute, so divide 1 gallon by the time in minutes to obtain the flow rate).

Refer to the System Specifications

(Table 1 on page 6, or Table 2 on pages 7) for the required feed flow.

Low system pressure occurs when sufficient feed water pressure and flow are not obtained. This causes the high-pressure RO pump to cavitate. Failure to provide the proper feed will result in lower system pressure that may result in low production and poor rejection. Check the following components:

1. PUMP:

Isolate the pump and determine how much pressure can be achieved. This can be determined by checking the pump discharge pressure gauge at this point. If the system is not equipped with this gauge, disconnect the hose that runs from the pump to the pressure vessel. Install a pressure gauge. The pressure of the pump must reach at least 190 psi when the flow is restricted.

2. PRE-FILTER:

Check the differential in the pre-filter gauges to determine if the filter needs to be replaced. If the

4. INLET SOLENOID VALVE: (see pointer 15 on the diagram of your system):

Feed water enters the system through an automatic solenoid shutoff valve, which is normally closed.

Ensure that the solenoid opens when the RO pump starts. The system can be operated without the solenoid for troubleshooting. Remove the solenoid to see if it is contributing to the problem. Normally, cleaning the solenoid diaphragm will correct any malfunction of the solenoid.

5. ELECTRIC:

Check to ensure that there are no electrical fuses blown and that all electrical connections are secure.

Use a voltmeter to verify that the motor is getting sufficient power.

Refer to System Specifications

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 35 of 55

(Table 1 On page 6 or table 2 on pages 7) for the power requirement of your motor.

6.

PRESSURE GAUGE:

Check for foreign matter on the gauge fitting. Remove any visible matter and replace the fitting. Verify that the tube is not pushed too far inside the fitting. This could restrict flow and cause an inaccurate display.

If the fitting and tube are fine and the pressure gauge is still malfunctioning, the gauge should be replaced.

7.

CONCENTRATE CONTROL

VALVE:

The concentrate control valve may have a tear in the diaphragm.

Remove the valve, inspect the diaphragm, and replace if necessary.

8. MOTOR:

The motor may not be drawing the correct current. Use a clamp-on ammeter to check the current draw.

9. LEAKS:

Check the system for leaks, as this can result in low pressure. correcting for feed water temperatures above or below 77° F

(see table 2). Check your permeate flow meter to determine the permeate flow rate. If the system does not have a permeate flow meter, measure the time it takes to fill a one-gallon container then calculate the permeate flow rate at gallons per minute or gallons per day.

NOTE:

To determine the temperature correction factor, go to page 38 and follow the directions.

Causes of Low Permeate Flow:

1) Cold Feed Water.

2) Low Operating Pressure.

3) Defective

Seal.

4) Fouled or scaled membrane

Causes of High Permeate Flow:

1) Defective product tube O-rings.

2) Defective or oxidized membrane.

Installation / Wiring

The controller is shipped from the factory preset for either 120VAC or

240VAC operation with cables for power, RO pump motor and inlet solenoid installed. If the unit is equipped with flush, a flush solenoid cable is also installed. For units shipped as 120VAC, 1 fuse for the electronics is installed in position F1.

Jumper J10 is installed to bypass fuse F2. For 240VAC operation, L1 is the hot leg and L2 is neutral. For

240VAC operation, both L1 and L2 are hot legs.

Power/Output Wiring:

Verify that the controller is jumpered correctly for the operating voltage.

The voltage jumpers are located in the lower left corner of the board. For

240VAC operation, 1 jumper is installed between J5 and J6. For

120VAC operation, 1jumper is installed between J4 and J6. For

120VAC operation, 1 jumper is installed between J4 and J6 and a second jumper is installed between

J3 and J5. NOTE: The pump and solenoid outputs will be the same voltage as the controller. Connect the pump and solenoid cables to the end devices.

Input Wiring:

Connect the low pressure, pretreat and level switches to the corresponding terminals of P2. The unit is configured for normally closed inputs. All inputs must be closed for the controller to run. If any input is unused, a jumper wire must be installed for that input before the unit will run.

NOTE:

If only 1 tank level switch is used, it must be connected to the

Tank Full High input, and the Tank

Full Low input

MUST

be jumpered

.

CAUTION:

These inputs are for dry contact switches only. Applying voltage to these inputs will damage the controller.

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 45 of 55

Operation

The controller has a two position power switch to control the operating mode of the controller. When the switch is in the left position, the controller is off and all outputs will be turned off. If the switch is moved to the right position, the controller is in the automatic mode. In this mode, the controller operation is automatic and is controlled by the input signals.

Auto Mode:

When the switch is placed in the auto position, the inlet solenoid will operate and the controller will monitor the low-pressure switch. The

RO pump will start after the RO start delay if no shutdown condition is present.

Low Pressure:

If a low-pressure condition occurs and the low-pressure switch input opens for the low-pressure delay time, the controller will shut down for a low-pressure fault. The red Low

Pressure lamp will light. If the autoreset jumper is in the off position, the controller will remain in low pressure shut down until reset. Placing the power switch in the off position for several seconds and then returning it to the auto position reset the controller

Auto Reset:

If the auto reset jumper is in the on position when a low pressure shut down occurs, the unit will attempt to restart after the auto reset delay,

(this should be approximately 15 minutes). If the low-pressure condition has cleared, the unit will continue to run. Otherwise, the unit will again shut down and the auto restart will continue as long as the low-pressure condition is active.

Pretreat:

If the pretreat lockout switch opens for the pretreat delay time, the unit will shut down for a pretreat condition. The amber Pretreat lamp will light. The unit will remain shut down until the pretreat switch closes.

The unit will then restart.

Tank Full:

The controller is designed to operate with either 1 or 2 tank level switches.

When a tank full condition occurs, the unit will shut down and the amber Tank Full lamp will light.

When the tank full condition clears, the unit will restart after the tank full restart delay.

If the unit is operated with only 1 level switch, the Tank Full Low input must remain jumpered. In this mode, when the tank full high switch opens for the tank full delay time the unit will shut down. When the tank full condition clears, the unit will restart.

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 46 of 55

If the unit is operated with 2 level switches, the controller will run when both switches are closed. When the water level rises and the tank full low switch opens, the unit will continue to run. When the water level rises and the tank full high switch opens, after the tank full delay, the unit will shut down for tank full. As the tank level drops and the tank full low switch closes, the unit will restart.

Flush:

If the flush option is installed, the unit will enter a flush mode every 10 hours. This flush will occur whether the unit is running or not. When the flush occurs, the inlet and flush solenoids will open and the RO pump will start. The amber Flush lamp will light. The flush will last for 5 minutes.

NOTE:

A low pressure or pretreat condition will cancel the flush operation. Also note that if a unit is shutdown for long periods of time due to a tank full condition, there is the possibility of tank overflow because of permeate water produced during flush.

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 47 of 55

Troubleshooting

The controller has LED indicator lamps that facilitate isolating a problem to the controller or to an external device. There are 4 green

LED=s, DS5-DS8, located next to the input terminal strop P2. When an

LED is on, this indicates that the corresponding switch input is closed.

When all 4 inputs have closed switches, all 4 green LED’s should be on and the RO should be operating.

NOTE:

The inputs on the controller are configured to operate with switches that are closed to run. For the controller to operate, ALL switch inputs must be closed. IF any of the inputs are not used, a wire jumper must be installed across the 2 terminals for that input or the unit

WILL NOT

operate.

There are 3 LED>s, DS9-DS11, located close to the corresponding relay. When an LED is on, this indicates the corresponding relay is activated and the proper voltage should be output at the terminals on

P1 for the relay. The following table lists the LED and corresponding input or output:

LED

DS6

INPUT / OUTPUT

Tank Full Low Input

Tank Full High Input

DS7 Pretreat

DS8

DS9

DS10

DS11

Low Pressure Input

RO Pump Output

Inlet Solenoid Output

Flush Solenoid Output

Controller Has No Power:

Verify that the voltage jumpers J3-J6 are in the correct position for the supplied power. Verify that the correct power is being applied to the power in terminals L1 and L2. Check fuses F1. Check fuse F2 if installed.

If F2 not installed, verify that jumper is installed at J10. Verify that power switch is in automatic position.

Controller Shows Low Pressure

When Pressure IS OK:

Turn the power switch to the off position. After a couple of seconds, place the switch in the automatic position. Verify that DS10 lights and that the inlet solenoid has opened. If the solenoid does not open, verify that the proper voltage output is present on the inlet valve terminals

L1 and L2. If the voltage is present, check the solenoid wiring and solenoid valve. If the solenoid does open, check to see if DS8 is on. If

DS8 is off, check the pressure switch, the switch wiring and switch piping.

EPRO 150-8000 O&M MANUAL Rev.04/03 Page 48 of 55

Controller Shows Pretreat Active

When Pretreat Not Active or Not

Connected

:

If the pretreat lamp is on, check DS7 and see if it is on. If the lamp is off, check the pretreat wiring on P2. A contact closure must be applied to this input to allow the unit to run. If no pretreatment device is connected to the controller, a wire jumper must be installed on the pretreat terminals for the init to operate properly.

Tank Full Not Operating Correctly:

If a single tank full switch is being used, it must be connected to the tank full high input, and the tank full low input must be jumpered. Verify that DS6 is on when the tank IS NOT full. If DS6 is off, reverse the operation of the tank level switch and check the level switch wiring.

If dual level switches are used, the upper switch must be connected to tank full high and the lower switch must be connected to tank full low.

When the water level in the tank is below both switches, DS5 and DS6 should be on and the unit should run.

If both LED=s are not on, reverse the operation of the level switch corresponding to the LED that is off and check the level switch wiring.

Auto Reset Not Operating:

Verify that the auto-reset jumper is installed in the on position.
