BACKGROUND

Robert Slovak devoted himself to the science of water after life-altering experiences. He took his astronautical and mechanical engineering degrees and decided to pursue the research of reverse osmosis with his brother Jack. The dynamic duo were considered the early developers of Reverse Osmosis technology.

Robert is best known for co-founding Water Factory Systems in the early 1970’s. He and his brother were among the early developers of Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology and its many applications.

Reverse Osmosis (right) filtration presses water through a semipermeable membrane using external pressure, producing clean potable water.


Their successful innovations encompassed home and office RO drinking water systems, bottled water production, laboratory purification, hemodialysis, seawater desalination, microchip production, bottled water production, water vending, spot-free vehicle washing and more.

As a result of the rapid growth of RO applications, Robert’s ongoing seminars, and a best-selling industry book on the subject of POU (Point of Use) RO, he became a well-known figure in the water industry. In 1989 Water Factory Systems was purchased by CUNO Inc, a global leader in fluid treatment. Since then, it was acquired by the 3M Corporation, which continues to market many of their original products.

DISCOVERING
QUINTON

After retiring from the corporate world, Robert left for Brazil to bring advanced water technology. While working in the rainforest, he contracted gastrointestinal illness due to unsanitary eating conditions in the small village. It was then Robert was taken to see a biologist for treatment. The scientist recommended Quinton Marine Plasma to eliminate the affliction.

Robert left the Brazilian biologist the following morning convinced he had uncovered one of the greatest medicines of history, an imported marine solution from Spain.
