LG SW 440 GR

High Rejection Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) Membranes

LG Chem’s NanoH2OTM thin-film nanocomposite (TFN) RO membranes lower water treatment costs by improving energy efficiency and productivity. These membranes feature benign nanomaterials incorporated into the thin-film polyamide layer of a composite membrane. This innovative patent-pending technology significantly increases membrane permeability and improves salt rejection.

    • Industry-standard flux with highest salt rejection
    • Standard 8-inch spiral wound element design
    • Easy to retrofit existing RO plants
    • NSF Standard 61 Certification
