Page 2 of 7 * Trademark of The Dow Chemical Company Form No. 609-00434-803 Element Construction Techniques Affect Accuracy of Nominal Membrane Areas If the RO element has been manufactured in a precisely controlled and repeatable way, then the nominal and active membrane area values should be very close. If, however, the construction of the element is not precisely controlled, then the actual active area can be significantly different from the nominal membrane area claimed for a particular element – and can vary from element to element. Accurate representation of active membrane area results in accurate design guidelines, which in turn result in accurate design flux and efficient systems with fewer fouling problems and lower costs of operation. The Automated Multi-leaf Element Cell (AMEC) construction technique – developed and used by FilmTec Corporation – produces FILMTEC™ RO elements of all types with an active membrane area that matches the nominal membrane area with a tolerance of plus or minus 2 percent. The AMEC construction technique allows for a level of accuracy and reproducibility that typically cannot be achieved by the manual or semi-automated techniques common to the construction of most competitive RO elements. Figures 1 to 4 show the appearance of element leaves typically produced using the AMEC technique vs. conventional manual rolling technology (CMRT). Figure 1. Automatic glue line Figure 2. Manual glue line (AMEC construction) (from far) (CMRT construction) (from far) Figure 3. Automatic glue line Figure 4. Manual glue line (AMEC construction) (detail) (CMRT construction) (detail) Figures 1 to 4 clearly show that CMRT-produced glue lines are more variable and have a significantly larger width than glue lines produced by the AMEC technique. Note that a significant proportion of membrane area is lost due to the wider glue lines in CMRT- constructed membranes – area that in a FILMTEC element is available, making the element more productive.
3. Page 3 of 7 * Trademark of The Dow Chemical Company Form No. 609-00434-803 Autopsies of CMRT- and AMEC-constructed elements show that in CMRT-constructed elements, there is typically a greater spread of glue from the side of each leaf. Manual glue lines are usually about 2 in. (5.1 cm) wide but can be as wide as 4 in. (10.2 cm). Conversely, elements manufactured with AMEC precision construction have glue lines that are only 0.7 in. to 1 in. (1.7 cm to 2.5 cm) wide. This difference in glue line width means that the active membrane area of an AMEC-constructed element is about 12.5 percent larger on average than a CMRT-constructed element of equivalent nominal and total area. Evaluating the Accuracy of Nominal vs. Actual Active Areas in Various RO Elements Table 1 shows a comparison of active, nominal and total membrane areas for some current commercially available FILMTEC and competitive seawater RO elements. Table 1.

These differences lead to systematic inconsistencies when calculating the total active membrane area or the average permeate flux of a membrane system. With these differences in active vs. nominal area, it should be expected that many membrane systems in the field are actually operating at 15 percent to 20 percent higher average permeate fluxes than calculated from the nominal membrane area. This means that a system using products with inconsistent area specifications, designed for an APF of 14 L/m 2 h (8.2 gfd), would in reality operate at 16 L/m 2 h (9.4 gfd) – a significant difference. Such differences may have implications for the reliable design and operation of systems – for example, on concentration polarization and fouling behavior. FilmTec recommends gaining further understanding of the active area of your membrane system by measuring the active membrane area yourself. The method we are recommending for the measurement of active area is included in the following section.

4. Page 4 of 7 * Trademark of The Dow Chemical Company Form No. 609-00434-803 How to Measure Actual Active Area of RO Membrane Elements The most difficult part in measuring active membrane area is opening the outer epoxy shell of a membrane element. Once the appropriate tools for opening the element are available and the element is open, measuring and calculating the active area is easy. The necessary tools can be readily purchased. Contact your FILMTEC representative if you would like further advice or support in performing an active area measurement on any FILMTEC or competitive element. Instruments Needed • Vibration saw • Knife • Ruler Procedure • Remove outer wrap and end caps from element Prior to autopsy, the element should be rinsed to remove biocides and/or other hazardous materials and then drained in a vertical position for about 30 minutes to remove excess water. To remove the hard shell, it is advisable to wear ample eye and face protection as well as long-sleeved garments to avoid skin contamination with fiberglass particles. We recommend the use of a vibration saw (such as model Astxe 638 or Msxe 636 from C. & E. Fein GmbH & Co, Stuttgart, Germany), along with ear protection. Figure 5. Vibration saw • Count total number of leaves A single leaf is defined as a rectangular sheet of tricot sandwiched between two layers of membrane and adhered around three edges by an adhesive. • Select three leaves to make measurements Leaves selected should be the most evenly spaced leaves in the element. • Make and record measurements Use the accompanying datasheets to record your measurements. 1.

1. Tech Fact Page 1 of 7 * Trademark of The Dow Chemical Company Form No. 609-00434-803 FILMTEC Membranes How to Evaluate the Active Membrane Area of Seawater Reverse Osmosis Elements Knowing the active membrane area of a reverse osmosis (RO) element is critical to reliable system design and performance. However, research shows that there are often significant discrepancies between the nominal (stated or implied) membrane area and the actual active membrane area in some competitive sea water RO elements. This Tech Fact bulletin will discuss: • The importance of evaluating the nominal vs. actual active membrane area of an RO element • Why RO elements constructed via automated methods offer a more accurate nominal membrane area • How to measure the actual active area of an RO element The Need for Accurate Measures As OEMs, consultants and end users have gained experience in the operation of RO elements in various applications and locations, many now include in their specifications a limit on the average permeate flux (APF) – expressed as liters per square meter per hour (L/m 2 h), or gallons per square foot per day (gfd) – at which systems may be designed and operated. To accurately calculate the APF of any membrane system, it is necessary to know the actual area of useful membrane surface area in each type of element used. This “useful area” is known as the active membrane area and is defined as the available surface area of membrane within an individual element, or within a system, through which permeate can pass. Active membrane area differs from total membrane area and nominal membrane area , as follows: • Total membrane area is the area of the membrane actually used in the construction of an RO element and is not normally stated by the element manufacturer. • Nominal membrane area is a value given or implied by the element manufacturer as the membrane area in any particular element type or configuration. The nominal area is a non-standardized measurement and does not always accurately reflect the active membrane area of an RO element. • Active membrane area is the actual, measured area of useful membrane when an element is opened and the area is measured and calculated leaf by leaf. The difference between active and total membrane area is accounted for by the membrane area lost during the construction of an element – i.e., membrane covered by adhesives and other construction materials.
