Water in industry is used for operations such as production processing, washing, dissolving, cooling, transportation. Industries often require large amount of water with vary quality. Water quality depends on the purpose of water use. The steam electric power generation industry is defined as those establishments primarily engaged in the steam generation of electrical energy for distribution and sale. Those establishments produce electricity primary from a process utilizing fossil type fuel (coal, oil, or gas) or nuclear fuel in connection with a thermal cycle employing the steam –water system as the thermos-dynamic medium [9]. Water with in boiler drum and steam generation tubes and headers must be soft and clean. Reverse Osmosis is an effective and proven technology to produce water that is suitable for many industrial applications that require demineralized or deionized water with neutral pH and without turbidity and aggressive.
