FilmTec™ Elements combine premium membrane performance with automated precision fabrication, which takes system performance to exceptional levels.
FilmTec™ SW30XFR-400/34i Elements are designed specifically to handle biofouling in seawater desalination plants. Elements are equipped with advanced fouling-resistant and cleanability features, helping plants reduce the number of chemical cleanings, while maintaining high rejection and low energy. Benefits of the FilmTec™ SW30XFR-400/34i Elements include:
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.
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.
