FILMTEC™ Seawater Reverse Osmosis 8" Elements

FILMTEC™ Seawater Reverse Osmosis 8" Elements can separate salts from water and are designed to reduce capital and operational costs of large desalination systems that produce greater than approximately 10 gpm (2300 L/h) of permeate. With a wide range of membranes available to meet various system design requirements, our RO products combine excellent membrane quality with automated precision fabrication, taking system performance to unprecedented levels.


FILMTEC™ SW30HR-380 Elements are a premium-grade seawater reverse osmosis element featuring both high active area and high salt rejection to offer the best long-term economics for seawater deslination systems.  FILMTEC SW30HR-380 delivers high boron rejection to help customers meet World Health Organization (WHO) and other drinking water standards.  FILMTEC SW30HR-380 elements deliver high performance over their operating lifetime without the use of oxidative post-treatments like many competitive products. This is one reason why  FILMTEC elements are more durable and may be cleaned more effectively over a wider pH range (1 – 13) than other RO elements.
