The OSMO BEV ULE Reverse Osmosis (RO) membrane element is engineered to provide beverage plants product water with a very efficient removal of total dissolved solids (TDS) at Ultra Low Energy (ULE) requirements. Low TDS is often required when producing purified water, teas, very low- and sodium free products, and carbonated soft drinks.
OSMO BEV ULE RO elements will produce treated water with lower levels of hardness, alkalinity, sodium and chloride, and is also the element of choice on high TDS feed-water streams.
OSMO BEV ULE RO series is certified to NSF/ANSI 61. Features include a Caged Outer wrap design that eliminates the stagnant zone associated with industrial FRP elements and their brine seals, which can act as a site for bacterial growth. The OSMO BEV ULE RO element forms a flush-fit with the inner diameter of the membrane element housing, creating a self-cleaning effect. This design also offers less
pressure resistance than an industrial FRP element, resulting in lower brake horsepower and substantial energy savings.
The OSMO BEV ULE RO membrane element is 100% Wet Test Quality Assurance.
