Hydranautics ESPA3-4040 Membrane

Product Description

ESPA® (Energy Saving Polyamide) elements achieve high flux/lower pressure without compromising standards for high rejection. Since its introduction in the late 1990s, the ESPA® membrane has gained wide acceptance in the water treatment industry due to the significant operational cost savings associated with their use. 

The growing family of ESPA membranes continue to meet the ever-increasing demands of the water treatment industry. ESPA2 offers unparalleled performance for your industrial and commercial water treatment needs. There's an ESPA solution to satisfy even the most challenging water treatment needs with exceptional performance, productivity and savings for high productivity and salt rejection.
