Lanxess launches RO membrane elements

The Lewabrane membrane separation elements will be produced at the new Lanxess production unit in Bitterfeld that came on stream last year.

Initially, customers will be able to buy two RO element types with different capacities that are based on polyamide thin-film composite membranes. Other RO element types will be added to the product range.

The current RO membrane separation elements are suitable for the desalination of brackish water in many industrial applications, including the production of boiler feed water required in power stations. The new Lewabrane RO membrane elements are also suitable for the preparation of feedwater for electrodeionization (EDI) applications.
