CPA6-LD is the fifth generation CPA brackish water RO membrane and has the best rejection of all of its predecessors at 99.8%. This 400 sq. ft. membrane operates at a higher feed pressure than CPA5-LD but it has the highest rejection in the CPA family.
CPA6-LD membranes are designed with Low Differential Pressure LDTM Technology designed to minimize colloidal fouling. They have 37.0 m2 (400 ft2) membrane area. Using CPA6-LD results in cost saving while still getting a high rejection from membranes.
CPA6-MAX has the same high rejection membrane of CPA6-LD, but features a 10% increase in membrane area at 440 sq.ft. CPA6 MAX is a preferred choice for feed waters of low turbidity and silt density index such as brackish well waters.
CPA6-LD and CPA6-MAX membranes are available in diameters of 8.0 inches only.
