The company aims to bring advanced water filtration to commercial infrastructure.

USA: DuPont Water Solutions (DWS) has recently launched DuPont™ TapTec™ LC HF-4040 Reverse Osmosis (RO) membrane filter. Compact, affordable, highly reliable, and effective, this product combines advanced features such as high flow rates, with reliability and ease of use.

Reverse osmosis is the “go-to” solution for large, centralized water treatment and desalination plants. The membrane elements used there demonstrate a high water recovery rate and successful rejection of contaminants like salts. DuPont supports water producers with its membrane technologies. As one of the biggest water technology companies in the world, DuPont water technologies process 25 million gallons (95 million liters) of water every minute around the world.

Beyond the large-scale utility water systems that serve us, however, there is a tremendous need for effective and efficient water purification at point-of-use, especially in office buildings, restaurants, hotels, and resorts. One of the big challenges there is the cost-effectiveness and ease of use of advanced water treatment technologies.

To bring the advantages of large-scale reverse osmosis (RO) membrane filtration to more decentralized and commercial infrastructure use, the company has launched the DuPont™ TapTec™ LC HF-4040 RO membrane filter. Compact, affordable, highly reliable, and effective, this product combines advanced features such as high flow rates, with reliability and ease of use.

The membrane elements are spiral-wound from a polyamide thin-film composite. They perform at an average flow rate of 2,800 gallons per day (10.6 m3/d) and have a minimum salt rejection of 98.5% *.

As such they are ideally suited to provide affordable drinking quality water on site as part of an engineered system that can be designed for a variety of automation needs.

*Standard test condition, please refer to the product data-sheet.
