DOW FILMTEC™  NF90-2540 Nanofiltration (NF) Membrane Elements for Commercial Systems

The DOW FILMTEC NF90-2540 membrane elements provide high productivity performance while removing a high percentage of salts, nitrate, iron and organic compounds such as pesticides, herbicides and THM precursors. The low net driving pressure of the FilmTec NF90-2540 membrane allows the removal of these compounds at low operating pressures.

DOW FILMTEC NF90-2540 is FDA – 21 CFR 177.2550; Food and Drug Administration Compliant.
