FilmTec™ Wet Seawater Reverse Osmosis 8" Elements


FilmTec™ SW30HRLE-370/34i Wet


FilmTec™ SW30HRLE-370/34i Elements are durable, high-rejection, high-productivity seawater elements for use in high-fouling or challenging feedwater conditions, helping to support smooth operations and low cost of water.

Benefits of the FilmTec™ SW30HRLE-370/34i Element include:

  • A wide 34-mil feed spacer to lessen the impact of fouling on pressure drop across a vessel and enhance cleaning effectiveness.
  • An active area of 370 ft2, maximizing productivity and enabling accurate and predictable system design and operating flux.
  • Utilization of the distinct iLEC™ Interlocking Endcaps that help to reduce system operating costs and reduce the risk of O-ring leaks that cause poor water quality.
  • Effective use in permeate-staged seawater desalination systems without impairing the performance of the downstream stage.
  • High performance over the operating lifetime without the use of oxidative posttreatments. FilmTec™ Elements are more durable and may be cleaned over a wider pH range (1 – 13).
  • Automated, precision fabrication with a greater number of shorter membrane leaves reducing the effect of overall fouling and maximizing element efficiency.
