DOW FILMTEC SW30HRLE-400i Membrane

Quality parts at an exceptional value
Product Description

The FILMTEC SW30HRLE-400i delivers high performance over the operating lifetime without the use of oxidative post-treatments and provides high NaCl and boron rejection to help meet World Health Organization (WHO) and other drinking water standards. DOW FILMTEC SW30HRLE-400i comes with the unique iLEC™ Interlocking Endcaps that reduce system operating costs and reduce the risk of o-ring leaks that cause poor water quality.

DOW FILMTEC SW30HRLE-400i offers high rejection and low total cost of water for seawater desalination.

Advantages

  • High flux reduces energy use or pressure required
  • Good rejection results in good quality water
  • High boron rejection
  • Filmtec performance and quality

Important Information

Proper start-up of reverse osmosis water treatment systems is essential to prepare the membranes for operating service and to prevent membrane damage due to overfeeding or hydraulic shock. Following the proper start-up sequence also helps ensure that system operating parameters conform to design specifications so that system water quality and productivity goals can be achieved.

Before initiating system start-up procedures, membrane pretreatment, loading of the membrane elements, instrument calibration and other system checks should be completed.

Please refer to the application information literature entitled “Start-Up Sequence” (Form No. 609-02077) for more information.

Operation Guidelines

Avoid any abrupt pressure or cross-flow variations on the spiral elements during start-up, shutdown, cleaning or other sequences to prevent possible membrane damage. During start-up, a gradual change from a standstill to operating state is recommended as follows:

  • Feed pressure should be increased gradually over a 30-60 second time frame.
  • Cross-flow velocity at set operating point should be achieved gradually over 15-20 seconds.
  • Permeate obtained from first hour of operation should be discarded.

General Information

  • Keep elements moist at all times after initial wetting.
  • If operating limits and guidelines given in this bulletin are not strictly followed, the limited warranty will be null and void. Refer to DOW™ FILMTEC™ Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration Element Three-Year Prorated Limited Warranty (Form No. 609-35010)
  • To prevent biological growth during prolonged system shutdowns, it is recommended that membrane elements be immersed in a preservative solution.
  • The customer is fully responsible for the effects of incompatible chemicals and lubricants on elements.
  • Maximum pressure drop across an entire pressure vessel (housing) is 50 psi (3.4 bar).
  • Avoid static permeate-side backpressure at all times.

Dow Water Process Solutions offers various premium seawater reverse osmosis (RO) elements designed to reduce capital and operation cost of seawater RO systems. DOW™ FILMTEC™ elements combine premium membrane performance with automated precision fabrication and maximize system output to provide unprecedented performance. The DOW™ FILMTEC™ SW30HR LE-400i element offers a combination of high rejection and low energy requirements to allow lower total costs with medium and high salinity feedwater. DOW FILMTEC SW30HR LE-400i element comes with the distinct iLEC™ Interlocking Endcaps that help reduce system operating costs and reduce the risk of o-ring leaks that cause poor water quality. See Form No. 609-00446 for information on the cost-saving benefits of iLEC Interlocking Endcaps. Benefits of the DOW FILMTEC SW30HR LE-400i element include:

  • Enables systems to be designed and operated to optimize operating cost through lower energy consumption or to optimize capital cost through higher productivity at lower operating fluxes.
  • High NaCl and boron rejection to help meet World Health Organization (WHO) and other drinking water standards.
  • Effective use in permeate staged seawater desalination systems without impairing the performance of the downstream stage.
  • High performance over the operating lifetime without the use of oxidative post-treatments. This is one reason DOW FILMTEC elements are more durable and may be cleaned more effectively over a wider pH range (1-13) than other RO elements.
  • Automated, precision fabrication with a greater number of shorter membrane leaves reducing the effect of overall fouling and maximizing element efficiency, helping to lower your cost of operation.
Operating Limits
  • Membrane Type Polyamide Thin-Film Composite
  • Maximum Operating Temperaturea 113°F (45°C)
  • Maximum Element Pressure Drop 15 psig (1.0 bar)
