The VinoCon RO5 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. operating pressure.
The VinoCon RO5 Elements provide high flux rates at operating pressures up to 1,200 psi (8,274 kPa). This element is designed periodic hot-water sanitation while still maintaining element integrity. They are typically used for concentrating grape juice from harvested grapes requiring stringent sanitary procedures. Other applications may include wine must concentration and wine adjustment and concentration.
The VinoCon RO5 Elements feature a Durasan* Cage patented outer wrap, standard feed spacers and Polysulfone parts.
