Wisconsin Patent of the Month – February 2024

Complete Water Solutions, LLC, experts in water treatment technology, has been granted a patent for reverse osmosis filter ram. The technology addresses the challenges associated with the removal and addition of reverse osmosis filters, presenting an ingenious solution to enhance efficiency and prevent potential damage to equipment.

At the heart of this invention lies a meticulously designed filter ram apparatus. This system is configured to securely hold a plunger controlled by a linear actuator. The plunger comprises a plunger rod and a plunger head, both extendable through the linear actuator. What sets this system apart is its adaptability, as it comes with detachable and changeable connection brackets. These brackets can seamlessly connect to both steel and fiberglass reverse osmosis tubes, offering versatility in application.

The fiberglass reverse osmosis tube attachment bracket is a standout feature, comprising rings and tabs strategically positioned to ensure a secure fit on the end of a fiberglass reverse osmosis tube. A clamp on the base of the filter ram apparatus firmly holds the plunger onto the bracket tube, aligning the plunger rod and plunger head precisely with the opening of the fiberglass reverse osmosis tube.

Complete Water Solutions’ Filter Ram System excels not only in its structural design but also in its operational efficiency. The linear actuator, under the control of a dedicated controller, facilitates the extension of the plunger rod and head, enabling the smooth movement of tubular reverse osmosis filters within the reverse osmosis tube.

Complete Water Solutions continues to push the boundaries of water treatment technology with its Filter Ram System. This invention not only showcases engineering excellence but also addresses critical challenges in the reverse osmosis process, marking a significant leap forward in water treatment innovation.
