DOW HYPERSHELL™ Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration 8" Elements

DOW HYPERSHELL™ Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration 8" Elements are ideal for food and dairy processing and combine robust RO and NF membrane sheets, precision automated element rolling, and a machined, polypropylene hard outer shell into a state-of-the-art design that minimizes channeling and prevents premature element failures. The rugged outer shell is easy to handle, enabling safer and faster loading and removal of elements from a system. Improved hydrodynamics (over mesh-wrapped) result in energy savings and more efficient processing and cleaning.

DOW HYPERSHELL™ NF245-8038/48-FF and NF245-3838/48-FF

DOW HYPERSHELL™ NF245-8038/48-FF and NF245-3838/48-FF Elements offer a distinct solution for demineralization of high viscous liquids through an industry wide combination of features. The elements are made of the robust DOW FILMTEC™ NF245 membrane sheet which is designed to reject organics with a molecular weight above 300 amu while passing monovalent salts. A 48-mil spacer reduces the pressure drop across the pressure vessel and improves cleaning effectiveness as well as allows to treat high viscous fluids. Our DOW HYPERSHELL™ technology, a machined polypropylene rigid outer shell offers significant advantages versus standard mesh wrapped elements.
