MILWAUKEE — During WQA Aquatech USA 2015 in Las Vegas, April 21-24, Pentair Water Purification unveiled its new reverse osmosis (RO) membrane, the GRO, according to a press release.

While maintaining a retrofit-able design, the high-performance GRO boasts a 50 percent recovery rate, stated the release.

The GRO is available in three different GPD models — the 36, 50 and 75 — with each certified to NSF/ANSI 58 for materials and structural integrity, in addition to NSF list component performance claims, reported the release.

The GRO’s element design integrates a 100 percent dry membrane to help provide enhanced performance to the end user and maximize its lifespan, noted the release.

“The GRO was engineered to minimize the wastefulness of a traditional reverse osmosis membrane,” said Pentair Water Purification Product Manager Mike Glodowski. “Dealers deserve better technology that doesn’t drive up margins or create additional, oftentimes unnecessary, stages. The GRO improves the distribution or flow of feedwater to the membrane without disrupting rejection performance or daily production rate of the element.”
