Dow Water & Process Solutions Unveils New RO Elements

Company will showcase new products at WQA Aquatech USA 2011

Dow Water & Process Solutions announced the next generation of DOW FILMTEC reverse osmosis (RO) membrane components, offering water treatment for a wide range of commercial applications. The DOW FILMTEC LC HR 4040 and DOW FILMTEC LC LE 4040 elements use advanced membrane chemistry to deliver high-quality water at low total cost of ownership. These latest RO innovations are debuting this week at WQA Aquatech USA 2011.

“As a global leader in sustainable separation and purification technologies, we are committed to making potable or drinking water more available while protecting vital resources for communities and industries around the world,” said Snehal Desai, global marketing director, Dow Water & Process Solutions. “Our latest additions to the DOW FILMTEC product line will bring greater resource protection and utilization to businesses and municipalities around the world.”

With an industry-leading rejection rate of 99.7%, the DOW FILMTEC LC HR 4040 provides more than 40% reduction in salt passage and 20% improvement in flow rate over the existing DOW FILMTEC BW30-4040 high-rejection element. The element is suited for processes with high-quality/high-volume water requirements, such as those found in pharmaceutical, car wash and industrial applications.

The DOW FILMTEC LC LE 4040 low-energy element delivers high-quality water at low-pressure operations, expanding water purification capacity even in harsh feed water conditions. This element provides more than a 25% improvement in flow rate and reduction in salt passage compared to earlier DOW FILMTEC elements, with the added benefit of increased energy savings. The LC LE 4040 element is appropriate for use in large commercial applications such as hotels, restaurants and water vending machines.

Dow Water & Process Solutions is showcasing its latest solutions and its global industry-leading expertise during WQA Aquatech USA at booth 612.
