Pentair Introduces Reverse Osmosis Membrane

New membrane is available in three different GPD models

Pentair Water Purification unveiled its new reverse osmosis membrane, the GRO, during WQA Aquatech USA last week in Las Vegas. The high-performance GRO boasts a 50% recovery rate while maintaining a retrofit-able design.

“The GRO was engineered to minimize the wastefulness of a traditional reverse osmosis membrane,” said Mike Glodowski, product manager, Pentair Water Purification. “Dealers deserve better technology that doesn’t drive up margins or create additional, oftentimes unnecessary stages. The GRO improves the distribution or flow of feed water to the membrane without disrupting rejection performance or daily production rate of the element.”

The GRO comes in three different GPD models: the 36, 50, and 75. Each is NSF/ANSI certified to Standard 58 for materials and structural integrity, in addition to NSF list component performance claims. Its innovative element design integrates a 100% dry membrane to help maximize its lifespan and provide enhanced performance to the end user. It has two-and-a-half times the recovery over standard reverse osmosis elements, high rejection stability at high input and an enhanced rejection performance.
