The GE TFM-50EN is an ecapsulated reverse osmosis membrane. This 50 gallon per day membrane includes a control valve and a built-in permeate check-valve which eliminates the need for additional fittings and reduces the potential for water leaks within the system. The TFM-50EN uses separation technology called crossflow filtration that captures impurities on the membrane and sweeps them away constantly with the concentrate stream. This process keeps the membrane surface continuously cleaned, which prolongs the life of the membrane and reduces maintenance costs.The spiral-wound membrane element is constructed of one or more membrane envelopes which are wound around a perforated central tube. The permeate water passes through the reverse osmosis membrane into the envelope and spirals inward to the central tube.
The GE TFM-50EN was designed for residential and light commercial applications. This membrane features color-coded ports and a built-in permeate check valve.
The GE TFM-50EN components are NSF Certified to meet standard 58 for performance, material safety, and structural integrity.
Note: This membrane is not chlorine resistant. A CTO reduction water filter must be used before the RO membrane if chlorine is present in your water supply.
