FilmTec™ Dry Seawater Reverse Osmosis 8" Elements
Starting in 2020, DuPont Water Solutions has produced and supplied our customers dry seawater reverse osmosis FilmTec™ elements. As an industry leader, we will be the first supplier to offer dry-tested SWRO elements.
FilmTec™ SW30HRLE-440i Elements offers sustainable lower lifecycle cost for medium- and high-salinity feedwaters with high stabilized salt rejection of 99.80% and high boron rejection. The highest guaranteed active area of 440 ft2 (41 m2) permits lowest system cost by maximizing productivity and enables accurate and predicable system design. A 28-mil feed spacer provides low cleaning frequency and high cleaning efficiency. iLEC™ Interlocking End Caps reduce system operating costs and the risk of o-ring leaks that can cause poor water quality.
We’re proud to offer dry-tested reverse osmosis elements to give our customers the flexibility that comes with increased ability for storage and the operational and safety benefits related to its lower weight and the absence of preservation solution. For years, innovation in the SWRO space has been focused on incremental improvement of product specifications. The ability to transition from wet testing to dry testing seawater membranes is one of the biggest breakthroughs in the water filtration industry in many years. This innovation beyond product specifications has been enabled thanks to continuous advancements in membrane chemistry, automated precision & consistent manufacturing, single source production and enhancements in testing methods and procedures.
