The Duracon family of proprietary thin-film reverse osmosis membrane elements are characterized by high sodium chloride rejection. The A-series membrane has an average rejection of 99.2% on 2,000 ppm NaCl at 25°C and 225 psi.
The Duracon RO5 Elements provide high flux rates at operating pressures up 1,200psi (8,274kPa). These elements are designed for daily CIP and periodic hot-water sanitation, while still maintaining element integrity. They are typically used for concentrating sugar in food-related processes requiring stringent sanitary procedures. Applications include protein and sugar concentration, lactose recovery, and wastewater
applications requiring reduction of BOD.
The Duracon RO5 Elements feature a Durasan* Cage patented outerwrap, standard feed spacers, and polysulfone parts.
The Duracon RO5 elements comply with:
• FDA Regulations relevant sections of 21CFR
• EU Framework 1935/2004/EC
• Halal & Kosher certification
