Approved for Drinking Water Applications
The Lewabrane membrane elements produced by Lanxess AG, Bitterfeld, Germany, for water treatment by means of reverse osmosis comply with the NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for health effects of drinking water system components. The American National Sanitation Foundation (NSF International) has thus certified all membrane elements currently offered by Lanxess are safe for treatment of drinking water.
“With this quality certification for treatment of drinking water, we now have access to an additional market with great growth potential. This certifies the high quality of our products and further increases the trust of customers in our membranes”, stated Alan Sharpe, manager RO Membrane Project in the Liquid Purification Technologies Business Unit (LPT) of Lanxess. He explained further: “In most countries, compliance with NSF Standard 61 is a basic prerequisite for use in drinking water applications and thus an important quality indicator.”
Lewabrane products feature spiral-wound polyamide composite membranes. They were designed for water treatment in industrial applications.
Increasing environmental pollution and a continually growing demand for water from a still-expanding population as well as the industrial sector mean that the demand for clean water continues grow as well. This is why innovative solutions for water purification are in demand.
