The A-Series family of proprietary thin-film reverse osmosis membrane is characterized by high flux and relatively high sodium chloride rejection. AP brackish water elements are selected when extreme high flow and ultra-low operating pressures are desired.
The AP membrane element is designed specifically to operate at low energy high flow applications for beverage, light commercial, residential and general industrial applications.
