DOW FilmTec Membrane Elements

DOW FILMTEC™ LE-400 High Productivity Low-Energy Brackish Water RO Element

DOW FILMTEC LE-400 element is a low-energy element for industrial and municipal applications that operate at low pressure to deliver energy savings in new equipment or replacement situations where energy cost is an important factor and unit price is a key driver.

  • Delivers equivalent permeate flow at 40% lower feed pressure, compared to the FILMTEC BW30-400.
  • Offers the proven performance and high productivity of the FILMTEC BW30-400 element construction, with lower energy use and operating expense.
  • The new FILMTEC LE-400 has an industry standard 1.125 inch ID permeate tube to facilitate element replacement.

DOW FILMTEC Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis 8" Elements can separate salts from water and are produced with an automated fabrication process that ensures precision, consistency, and reliability. They are ideal for use in large-scale industrial and municipal water treatment systems that produce greater than approximately 10 gpm (2300 L/h) of permeate. Our RO membranes build on a tradition of leadership in the thin-film composite membrane industry and meet today's challenges for higher rejection using less energy and resisting foulants in challenging waters.

Dow inclucdes one coupler part number PV-IN810 (313198) with each element.  Each coupler includes two 3-912 EPR o-rings.

DOW FILMTEC LE-400 is FDA – 21 CFR 177.2550; Food and Drug Administration Compliant.
