Industry’s Filtration Partner
The A-Series family of proprietary thin-film reverse osmosis membrane elements is characterized by high flux and high sodium chloride rejection. AK HR Low Pressure Brackish Elements are selected when high rejection and low operating pressures are desired. These elements allow significant energy savings since good rejection is achieved at operating pressures as low as 100 psig (689 kPa).

These elements are recommended for low brackish water with salt concentration (TDS) levels up to 1,000mg/l. In turn, AK HR LE elements produce a permeate quality close to a standard brackish membrane element at a much lower pressure.

AK HR LE elements feature a FRP outer wrap and female end connections.
