FILMTEC TW30-1812-36 reverse osmosis membrane elements for home drinking water are the industry’s most reliable. Advanced membrane technology and automated fabrication allow these elements to deliver consistent performance that equipment suppliers, water treatment dealers, and residential customers can rely on. FILMTEC TW30-1812-36 elements are shipped dry for convenient handling and long shelf-life. These elements are NSF/ANSI Standard 58 listed. Equipment suppliers can take advantage of FilmTec’s Standard 58 listing and participation in the NSF Data Transfer Protocol to reduce costs for reduction claims for their systems.
FILMTEC TW30-1812-36 home drinking water elements are rated at 50 psi and will purify about 20% more water than competitive elements rated at 60 psi (please see the datasheet for more information).

1. Permeate flow and salt rejection based on the following test conditions: 250 ppm softened tapwater, 77°F (25°C), 50 psig (3.4 bar), and 15% recovery.
2. Permeate flows for individual elements may vary +/-20%.
