DOW™ Specialty Membranes

The DOW™ Specialty Membrane product line consists of elements with a distinct membrane construction, specializing in unique industrial application needs. Broadening the Dow Water & Process Solutions portfolio to solve operation challenges in extreme conditions, the DOW™ Specialty Membrane Elements perform consistently to help maximize recovery and separation of valuable compounds, minimize overall system CAPEX while reducing environmental footprint, reduce OPEX by lowering overall energy and cleaning chemicals consumption, and meet regulatory requirements.


DOW™ Specialty Membranes XUS290508 and XUS290504 High Temperature NF Element

The DOW™ Specialty Membranes XUS290508 and XUS290504 High Temperature Nanofiltration Elements offer a distinct combination of features. It allows up to 70°C continuous operating temperature capability thus reducing the size of cooling and heating systems. The 34 mil feed spacer allows for maximum active membrane surface area while lessening the impact of fouling, reducing the pressure drop across the pressure vessel and enhancing cleaning effectiveness. The element is ideally suited for applications like waste brine recycling from sugar decolorization, concentration of thin juice sugars or components in chemical processing, and sulfate removal in chloralkali process streams.
