DOW FilmTec Membrane Elements

DOW FILMTEC™ BW30HR-440I Industrial BWRO Membrane Element

The DOW FILMTEC™ BW30HR-440i Reverse Osmosis Element is a high-performing, high-productivity element combining the highest active membrane area available in the industry today with the maximum rejection brackish water reverse osmosis (RO) membrane. It incorporates Dow's innovative BW30HR membrane sheet technology, designed to deliver the highest quality RO permeate. This is combined with the cleanability of a 28-mil feed spacer, to minimize capital expenses in high-purity industrial water applications.  FilmTec BW3o-HR-440i elements are ideal for reverse osmosis plant managers and operators dealing with controlled pre-treatment waters and seeking consistency, high performance, long element life, increase productivity, higher water quality coupled with outstanding fouling resistance and reduced footprint installations. 

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.

BW30HR-440I is iLEC interlocking style for direct connection of membranes in multi-element housings.

Benefits of DOW FilmTec Commercial RO Membranes

  • iLEC™ interlocking elements connect end-to-end inside of the housing, eliminating the need for membrane interconnectors and offering the following benefits: ​
    • Reliable and long-term seal integrity – The single, non-sliding seal reduces the number of potential leak sites and is evenly compressed upon installation.
    • Leak-tight performance – The iLEC design eliminates the possibility of o-rings being rolled from their grooves or pinched and damaged during operation.
    • Lubricant-free operation – Omission of o-ring lubricant to preserve permeate quality, such as in ultra-pure water applications, will not compromise sealing performance.
    • Backward compatibility – Compatibility with existing hardware is maintained. The smooth inner bore located at each end of the permeate collection tube is unchanged, permitting insertion of sliding couplers and existing vessel adapters. The net length of the elements, when connected, remains 40 inches.
    • Reduced permeate pressure drop – Internal couplers and vessel adapters account for more than 70 percent of the permeate-tube pressure drop in some systems. The interlocking endcap design minimizes these restrictions, imposing less permeate backpressure.
  • Decades of proven performance
  • Delivers high quality permeate water while minimizing CAPEX and OPEX
  • Offers increased active area with the most effective cleaning performance, robustness and durability due to its widest cleaning pH range (1-13) and chemical tolerance and the support of Dow technical representatives
  • High rejection results in excellent water quality and decreased downstream polishing
  • Thick feed spacer minimizes the impact of fouling
  • FilmTec performance and quality

Common Applications for FilmTec BW30HR-440I Commercial RO Membranes:

  • Industrial Water Demineralization
  • Production of Municipal Water
  • Water Reuse
