Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO)
LG SW 440 SR
LG Chem’s NanoH20™ seawater RO membranes, incorporated with innovative Thin Film Nanocomposite (TFN) technology, reduce the cost of desalination while delivering superior water quality. Our seawater RO membranes provide industry-leading salt rejection and produce 20% more flow than membranes manufactured with conventional technologies. We continue to leverage the technological advantages of our seawater RO membranes to expand our market share, accruing more than 3,000 Million Liter per Day (MLD) projects for both the new and replacement markets since the establishment.
LG SW SR (Super Rejection) membranes offer the highest rejection for the best product water quality; suitable for high salinity seawater applications.
