Storage

TFC*Storage

Spirals manufactured from this membrane are 100% performance tested on Buena
Park filtered tap water at 60 psig (4.1 atm) applied pressure. Productivity is corrected to 77 F (25 C). Nominal rejection is 97% to 98% (95% minimum) and nominal productivity is rated value 15%. Refrigerated storage is best for maximum life, but not a requirement. We do recommend leaving spirals in their original packaging until needed.

  1. Spirals are sanitized with 1.5 weight percent sodium metabisulfite. Spirals are nitrogenflushed and vacuum bagged or encapsulated into a housing.
  2. Spirals must NOT be allowed to dry.
  3. Spirals must NOT be allowed to freeze.

Rinsing and preparation for use:

  1. Use only potable dechlorinated (0 ppm Total Chlorine) feed water.
  2. Rinse to drain a minimum of 3 hours.
  3. Nominal pH limits are 4.0 to 11
  4. Allowable feed water Temperature range is 34F to 113F (1C - 45C).

* Manufactured and licensed under U.S. Patent No. 4,277,344.
