DuPont Water Solutions Launches Breakthrough Dry-Tested Seawater Reverse Osmosis Elements

With focused research efforts and deep expertise in membrane development and design, dry-tested seawater reverse osmosis elements are expected to transform the water industry as we know it and take desalination to the next level.

WILMINGTON, Del. (PRWEB) January 16, 2020
DuPont Water Solutions, a business unit of DuPont Safety & Construction, will now offer dry-tested seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) elements to the industry. Newly launched next-generation SWRO technology enables customers to transition from wet to dry testing, which increases shelf life and offers more flexibility for storage. In addition, dry SWRO improves sustainability, safety and ergonomics during operation. Dry SWRO products will continue to meet or exceed membrane performance standards to achieve long-term operational benefits.
“Our business strives to further innovation in everything we do,” said HP Nanda, Global Vice President & General Manager, DuPont Water Solutions. “With focused research efforts and deep expertise in membrane development and design, dry-tested seawater reverse osmosis elements are expected to transform the water industry as we know it and take desalination to the next level.”
Improved sustainability footprint
By producing dry tested SWRO membranes, DuPont has doubled down on its commitment to global sustainability. Dry SWRO membranes help reduce energy consumption and decrease carbon dioxide emissions with a lower membrane weight and alternative testing process.
“If yearly desalination demand for a large installation is supplied with dry elements, emission savings are equivalent to greenhouse gas emissions from 7 million miles driven by a passenger vehicle or the carbon dioxide emissions from 3 million pounds of coal burned,” said Verónica García Molina, Global Marketing Leader for Municipal Water at DuPont Water Solutions. “Our high process standards and automated manufacturing deliver exceptional technology performance.”
Enhanced reliability and operations
Dry SWRO elements offer customers significant advantages over wet elements, given the requirement to monitor and eventually replace preservation solutions for wet membranes. Since dry-tested membranes do not need to be stored with the solution, they help enable longer storage times, lower labor costs and easier, long-term warehouse planning.
DuPont™ FilmTec™ elements that have been dry tested will have an extended six months under warranty compared to wet elements, which typically start after installation or six months after delivery. Dry-test SWRO membranes also are safer to install due to a 4kg reduction in weight and ease of handling.

Larson Electronics Releases Intrinsically Safe Floor Water Sensor, Zero Current, No Circuit Configuration

Press Release – updated: Jan 11, 2020 08:00 CST

KEMP, Texas, January 11, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Larson Electronics, a Texas-based company with over 40 years of experience spearheading the industrial lighting and equipment sectors, announced the release of an intrinsically safe floor water sensor that can detect water and conductive liquids in hazardous environments with resistance less than 4 meg. This device comes with a normally open circuit configuration. This unit does not consume electricity and is made of plastic with stainless-steel conductivity electrodes.
The EXP-EL-SR-IS-WS-FM intrinsically safe floor water sensor is an immersion type sensor that offers instant response during use. This device is made for the real-time detection of water/spills inside industrial facilities and hazardous work environments. This unit’s normally open circuit allows the sensor to close the circuit when detecting water or conductive liquids, which triggers an alarm (not included) or other function.
Larson Electronics’ floor water sensor features an instant response time when water is detected with response time for other liquids dependent upon the substance. This unit requires a compatible customer-provided liquid monitor to complete the system. The unit does not consume electricity during operation (zero current) and can operate below its operating temperature range as long as the liquid does not thicken or solidify.
This unit is compatible with 2-conductor wiring and can be floor mounted or mounted to a wall that is close to the floor. Suitable applications include hazardous work environments, combustible and flammable sites for flood/spill detection and protection in storage rooms and more.
About Larson Electronics LLC: Larson Electronics LLC is a manufacturer of industrial lighting equipment and accessories. The company offers an extensive catalog of industry-grade lighting and power distribution products for the following sectors: manufacturing, construction, food processing, oil and gas, military, marine and automobile. Customers can benefit from the company’s hands-on, customized approach to lighting solutions. Larson Electronics provides expedited service for quotes, customer support and shipments.
