Hydranautics SWC6-LD 8040 membranes are the lowest feed pressure seawater reverse osmosis membranes offering low energy consumption. They are preferred when the seawater feed temperature is lower which requires high feed pressures. SWC6 seawater reverse osmosis membranes result in low energy consumption and lower treatment costs.
