The A-Series, family of proprietary thin-film reverse osmosis membrane elements are characterized by high flux and high sodium chloride rejection. AG Standard Brackish Water Elements are selected when high rejection and operating pressures as low as 200 psi (1,379 kPa) are desired. These elements allow moderate energy savings, and are considered a standard in the industry.

|Average Permeate Flow
• Average salt rejection after 24 hours operation. Individual flow rate may vary ± 20%.
• Testing conditions: 2,000 ppm NaCl solution at 225psi (1,551 kPa) operating pressure, 77°F (25°C), pH 7.5 and 15% recovery.
