Reverse osmosis (RO) has become the standard technology for water purification in numerous commercial and industrial applications. This trend has largely been driven by the advancement of low-pressure RO membranes with enhanced energy savings. Axeon Water Technologies is a leader in utilizing innovative proprietary technology for increasing permeate production while lowering operating pressures in RO applications. 

The HF5-Series is the latest development within Axeon’s line of membrane elements. This ultra-low-energy membrane was developed in response to user demands for a membrane that can be operated in applications with colder temperatures while maintaining a higher flow rate than standard low-energy RO membranes. HF5-Series membranes are the only elements on the market that operate at a pressure of 80 psi while delivering a salt rejection of 98.5%.

The membranes are available in standard 4-in. commercial sizes from 14 to 40 in. in length (covering a range of 600 to 2,500 gal per day.) Each element is integrity tested and packaged dry for longer shelf life and easier handling and installation.
