Dow Water Solutions has announced two new FILMTECTM 8 inch salt water reverse osmosis (SWRO) membrane elements for desalination applications.

At 99.80%, Dow says the FILMTECTM SW30XHR-400i has the highest salt rejection consistently demonstrated in the industry, and can remove boron and other dissolved solids to help plant operators and municipalities meet increasingly stringent drinking water standards. With a guaranteed active area of 400 ft2 and flow rate of 6,000 gpd, the elements have been designed to enhance productivity and demonstrate high performance over operating lifetime. The automated fabrication allows for the use of shorter membrane leaves, which can reduce fouling and improve efficiency.
