Thin Film Membrane Elements are not designed to support the temperature higher than 45°C (113°F). It does not mean that the elements cannot exceed the maximum temperature limit of 45°C. However, a greater potential for element damage exists as the temperature increases above 45°C, and the warranty is void. In order to operate or clean at high temperatures, high-temperature or heat-sanitizable elements with different materials of construction are recommended. We currently offer FilmTec heat-sanitizable elements that can be heat-sanitized up to 85°C (185°F).
