vapNanofiltration TFC Spiral-Wound Element:
NFW (300 – 500Da)

Synder Filtration’s Nanofiltration membranes are engineered and designed to provide superior separation performance for various application needs. Known for its stable flux and wide range of rejection to monovalent and divalent ions, Synder’s NF membranes have been developed specifically for specialty process applications.



NF SERIES BENEFITS

  • Operation at lower pressures than Reverse Osmosis membranes and still achieve excellent rejection of divalent and multivalent ions
  • NF membranes greatly reduce levels of hardness, nitrates, sulfates, tannins, turbidity, color, TDS, and moderate levels of salt from feed water streams

TECHNICAL NOTES

For element sizes not listed, please call or email Synder Filtration for details. We can design an element to fit your exact needs – just specify the element outer diameter (OD) or vessel/housing inner diameter (ID), element inner diameter (ID), and length. Elements are also available with or without a controlled bypass tail. Additional feed spacers are also available. Trials should be conducted to determine optimal application conditions.
