The VinoCon family of proprietary thin-film reverse osmosis membrane elements are characterized by
high sodium chloride rejection and a smooth, foulingresistant membrane surface. The S-Series membrane has an average rejection of 99.0% on 2,000ppm NaCl at 25°C and 425psi (2,930kPa).
The VinoCon RO3 Elements provide high rejection of sugars and low molecular weight organic constituents at operating pressures up to 1,200psi (8,274kPa). This element is designed for high crossflow, daily CIP, and the ability to handle suspended solids, and periodic hot-water sanitation, while still maintaining element integrity. They are typically used for concentrating grape juice in wineries requiring stringent sanitary procedures. Other applications may include wine must
concentration, wine concentration and adjustment.
The VinoCon RO3 Elements feature a Durasan* Cage patented outer wrap, standard feed spacers, and
