New 2.5-in. HF5-Series ultra-low-energy membranes feature a low nominal operating pressure of 80 psi. The membranes can produce up to 2,500 gpd with 98.5% salt rejection for improved system performance. They are ideal for use in applications with cold feedwater temperatures, or where there is a decrease in required operating pressure. Quality tested to ensure they meet the high standards, the membranes also are manufactured in the U.S.
Water scarcity is a universal and growing issue. With huge projected population growth, this problem will only continue to increase. The World Economic Forum reported that the world’s population surpassed 7 billion in 2011, and is expected to reach 9.3 billion by 2050. Urbanization, industrialization, pollution, increased energy needs and climate change all reinforce the stress of population growth, making water accessibility an even more pressing issue.

Filtering water in the washing machine reduces water consumption by 30%
Through a joint development with Dow Water & Process Solutions (DW&PS), Haier Group has commercialized the first Casarte eco-friendly washing machine using Dow ultrafiltration (UF) technology. The washing machine is designed and built with the new Dow Purinze UF module, which facilitates more than 30% reduction in water consumption while improving water quality by removing as much as 99 percent of common bacteria.
Reverse osmosis (RO) is becoming a common method for treating residential drinking water. While many consumers know RO best for its use in desalination, it is also effective for treating water quality problems in the home.
RO technology helps treat & conserve swimming pool water
With the global population estimated to grow from 7 billion in 2011 to more than 9.5 billion by 2050, profound stress has been placed on the world’s limited water supply, not only by its burgeoning population, but also by other factors, such as rapid urbanization, industrialization, pollution and climate change.1 As water scarcity and “water stress” persist, the water treatment industry has been tasked with developing innovative solutions to produce clean, potable water.

Dow Filmtec Eco RO elements help maintain reliable energy for major brewing company
Breweries need power to produce their products, and power plants need consistent, high-quality water to operate effectively. Because source water varies based on location, water chemistry and time of year, a power station for a major brewer in North America turned to Dow Water & Process Solutions and Consolidated Water Solutions to deliver a means to a flavorful, robust and satisfying end.
Filmtec 500-gpd residential RO elements facilitate the production of high-quality potable water. These elements use a new membrane chemistry that maximizes performance through balanced flow and high rejection, all in a compact, space-saving design that allows for consistent, quick refill with no intermediary tank. The new membrane chemistry helps utilize water more efficiently, leading to increased system recovery.
New Axeon L1-Series light commercial RO systems are ideal for a wide range of applications, including food and beverage preparation, aquariums, hydroponics, misting and more. The 200- to 300-gpd systems offer quality and reliability. They feature a new single-pump design, extra-low-energy membranes with auto flush, extensive pre- and post-filtration, and a compact wall-mount space-saving design that is simple to install, energy efficient and competitively priced.
Filmtec Seamaxx RO elements offer low energy consumption and an optimized module design that helps maximize the productivity of a desalination system with low differential pressure, low cleaning frequency and high cleaning efficiency. Producing up to 99.7% water purity, up to 10% energy savings and less fouling at high operating flux, they are ideal for applications that treat medium to high TDS, brine and high-salinity brackish water.
The island of Anguilla in the British West Indies is one of the northernmost Leeward Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. Like many Caribbean islands, tourism is its main industry, with more than 100,000 visitors each year.
