A clear vision about purified water generation in cosmetic and biopharma environment

Sanitary Reverse Osmosis Systems

CROS systems, entirely manufactured in Italy, can produce Purified Water (PW) and, with a supplementary step of Ultrafiltration (UF), Water for Injection (WFI). 

Thanks to different water pretreatment techniques, such as pre-filtration, Multi-Media filtration, softening, pre-treatment Ultrafiltration, chemical dosing, UV irradiation or Granulated Active Carbon, combined with the Reverse Osmosis system with or without Electrodeionization, CROS systems can work with any type of feed water.

  • Production of Purified Water (PW) and/or Water for Injection (WFI) for pharmaceutical/cosmetic use and laboratories.
  • Production of Ultrapure Water (UPW) for Semiconductors and Microelectronics.
  • The Reverse Osmosis unit can also use the latest hot water sanitizable advanced membrane technology to remove up to 99% of dissolved inorganics and organics, colloids and particles.
  • CROS is available either in single or twin pass Reverse Osmosis, with additional permeate refining and disinfection systems, such as EDI module, gas stripping station, UV reactor, and Ultrafiltration module, according to the URS.
Techn. Features

  • In-line measurement of process parameters
  • Water recirculation during idle periods to prevent biofilm growth
  • Centrifugal booster pump in SS with electronic pressure transducers automatically regulating pump capacity
  • All surfaces in contact with PW in certified AISI 316L SS / compatible materials according to applications
  • Skids and control cabinets in AISI 304 SS
  • Orbital and manual welds executed by qualified welders
  • Full traceability of all components
  • Sampling points after each treatment step
  • • Commissioning & qualification package (FAT, IQ, OQ)
  • Can be combined with customized feedwater pretreatment systems and with PW or cold WFI storage and distribution system
  •  Reduction of microbial contamination through regular hot water sanitization.
  • Sanitization of the RO System can be performed by chemical cleaning or hot water recirculation at ≥70°C (option)
Control System

Functions operated by the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller):

    • Input of measured values and setting of limit values   
    • Automatic Sequences (production, sanitization, …)
    • Control Functions (PID control for valves and speed of pump)
    • Alarm management and Verification of parameters   
    • Input of measured values and setting of limit values
    • Output commands for digital and analogic values
HMI System

HMI (Human Machine Interface)

  • Display of machine state  
  • Controls management
  • Verification of alarms
  • Set points inserting and limit values setting
  • Graphic interface

All automation systems can be in compliance to 21 CFR PART 11 or Siemens Operator Panel, through audit management and electronic signature. Access management included (user/password).

SCADA System

SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) / SCADA SERVER

    • All HMI values and controls
    • Data historicization
    • Historical alarms
    • Trend and Report
    • Recipes formulation / Batch
    • Data backup / Restore

All automation systems can be in compliance to 21 CFR PART 11 or Siemens Operator Panel, through audit management and electronic signature. Access management included (user/password).


Bram-Cor automation systems can virtually communicate with all network partners through maximum security protocol (Ethernet, Profinet, OPC Unified Architecture, …)


    • Teleservice (malfunctions managed remotely by Bram-Cor)
    • Remote Control (customer operator receives a message / a text message / a warning e-mail)
    • Server-side data centralization (customer can centralize data on his service, or Bram-Cor provides it)

Reverse Osmosis system producing Purified WaterCROS SIN/DOP/EDI: RO Systems producing Purified Water (PW)

Purified Water generation by CROS systems, as defined by USP, Ph Eur, JP, ChP and IP monographs, is classified for pharmaceutical use as an excipient in the production of non-parenteral preparations and for other pharmaceutical applications, such as for CIP cleaning of production equipment and for washing of non-parenteral product-contact components.


Reverse Osmosis system producing water for injection

CROS SIN/DOP EDI + UF: RO Systems producing Water for Injection (WFI)  

According to the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP),  the Japanese Pharmacopeia (JP) and the European Pharmacopeia (Ph.Eur.), Water for Injections in bulks can be produced with a purification process that is equivalent to distillation. 


Bram-Cor engineering satisfy all pharmaceutical regulatory and QA requirements

From design to manufacturing, CROS systems are aligned with the international cGMP and Pharmacopoeias. 

CROS Reverse Osmotic equipment is endowed with a Recycling system of the concentrate in order to obtain a higher recovery with a lower consumption of inlet water.
