High quality ultra low pressure commercial 4040 reverse osmosis membrane element made from the highest quality membrane material and manufactured by Toray. This membrane is ideal for use with the stainless steel commercial RO housings supplied by Utopia Koi.
The Ultra low pressure 4040 membrane is capable of offering up to 7,900 litres (1,740 UK/gallons) per day, at a water pressure of 80 psi or above . This membrane will provide equivalent output to an HF-5 reverse osmosis membrane and is less expensive.
Unlike many other companies we pride our selves on accurate advise.
Useful Fact: Unless your input water is heated to 24 °C, pumped with a pressure of at least 75 psi and other as a base set of water input parameters you will not attain the manufactures maximum water out put figures.
Most UK water is delivered at a temperature around 12 °C, with a water pressure of around 40 – 45 psi, you will approximately achieve 1 litres per minute (approximately 60 litres hour) equal to 1440 litres per day.
If you increase your pressure, you can expect a higher output. We assemble and install many systems every year and have over many years of using reverse osmosis systems gained a wealth of experience.
If you are going to pump your water, please ensure that your pump has sufficient water flow and sufficient pressure. Beware there are many “water-movers” low wattage, low pressure high volume pumps. You need a pump that will provide around 5 litres per minute at a pressure of over 80 psi constantly to achieve high flow rates of reverse osmosis product water.
At Utopia Koi we have used a 4040 reverse osmosis systems on our ponds for several years with great success achieving well over 1000 UK gallons per day.
