The durable elements are purpose-designed for use in long-lasting and efficient solutions for the separation and demineralization of milk and whey streams. With improved membrane chemistry and enhanced chemical resistance, they offer up to 20% longer service time and up to 10% greater productivity compared to standard nanofiltration elements.

“The sanitary full-fit design of FilmTec Hypershell elements is specifically designed for food and dairy processing applications to help reduce the volume of water and energy consumed when concentrating milk and separating lactose or whey,” said Yolanda Cuenca, Global Technical Leader Dairy at DuPont Water Solutions.

“OEMs, plant managers, and operators across the dairy ingredients industry are constantly seeking more cost-effective separation and demineralization solutions,” said Arturo López, Global Marketing Leader Dairy at DuPont Water Solutions. “FilmTec Hypershell NF245XD elements can help them maximize operational efficiency by improving product yield while consuming less energy than alternative solutions.”
