Sub Title: High Flux/Lower Pressure Elements

ESPA® (Energy Saving Polyamide) elements achieve high flux/lower pressure without compromising standards for high rejection. Since its introduction in the late 1990s, the ESPA® membrane has gained wide acceptance in the water treatment industry due to the significant operational cost savings associated with their use. 4” and 8” configurations available.
