This paper presents data showing how the application of Thin Film Nanocomposite RO membrane technology can lead to improvements in the permeability and selectivity of low pressure RO membranes; and, how those improvements influence low pressure system performance through pilot testing. In particular, TFN membranes will be examined in low salinity waters to show how alterations of the membrane structure (charge, hydrophilicity, roughness) can be used to improve system performance.
