GE's AG LF series membrane purifies tough-to-treat water such as wastewater from industrial processes. The low-fouling reverse osmosis (RO) membrane resists degradation from water containing bacteria, colloids and other materials that foul and shorten membrane element life. Customer experience with the AG LF membrane has shown the membranes require fewer cleaning cycles compared to conventional brackish membranes in tough-to-treat applications, such as steel production, power plants and plating processes. The membrane can reduce the time between cleanings by up to 50 percent, although actual results will vary with specific application conditions.
