- Reverse Osmosis Membrane Housing for Standard RO Membranes:
- The RO Membrane Housing can be used with most 11.75" to 12" reverse osmosis membrane elements.
- This reverse osmosis membrane housing has a thicker body for stronger durability and stronger membrane cup design to prevent cracking.
- The RO membrane housing has three standard 1/8” threaded ports. If you do not have fittings, see the Instructions section for available fittings.
- This Reverse Osmosis Membrane housing utilizes a flat gasket and an o-ring to ensure a true double o-ring seal. Other RO membrane housings lacking one o-ring will leak.
- You do not have to worry about bypass of Brine water to the Permeate side which is quite common on most other housings manufactured today.
- The reverse osmosis membrane housing has been Tested and Certified by NSF International to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 for material and structural integrity requirements only.
- Reverse Osmosis Membrane Housing Materials of Constructions:
- HOUSING: POLYPROPYLENE
- CAP: POLYPROPYLENE
- O-RING: EPDM
- MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE: 125°F (51.7°C)
- MAXIMUM PRESSURE: 100 PSI (7 BAR)
- INLET/OUTLET: 1/8" FPT
- Manufacturer: Liquatec MH03-1812WH
- Use the Reverse Osmosis Membrane Housing with:
- Reverse Osmosis Systems using a 11.75" to 12" Reverse Osmosis Membrane. 11.75" to 12" long RO Membranes are the standard size.
- Here are some RO Membranes that can be used in this RO Membrane Housing: TFM-18, TFM-24, TW30-1812-36, TFM-50, TW30-1812-75, TFM-100, and many more.
- If you do not have a standard size RO membrane, you can easily replace your membrane housing with this membrane housing. Standard RO Membranes are usually less expensive than special proprietary sized membranes.
- If you have a manifold system, you will not be able to replace your membrane with this membrane housing and a new membrane. A manifold system is one that makes the connections in the plastic head without using tubing to connect the separate components. Manifold systems must use the original size membrane.
- RO Membrane Housing Installation Instructions:
- To install the new membrane housing, the tubing will have to be disconnected from your old RO membrane housing and connected to this new membrane housing. Plumber's tape is recommended for installation of the membrane housing.
- This RO membrane housing has standard 1/8” threaded ports. There is one 1/8" threaded port on one end of the membrane housing. There are two 1/8" threaded ports on the opposite end of the membrane housing.
- If you do not have fittings, 1/8" fittings can be purchased separately. You will need 3 of the 1/8" fittings. The 1/8" FPT x 1/4" Tubing fitting connects the 1/8" threaded connection to 1/4" outside diameter tubing. The 1/8" FPT x 3/8" Tubing fitting connects the 1/8" threaded connection to 3/8" outside diameter tubing. Most systems use 1/4" tubing. You will need 3 fittings to connect the RO membrane housing to your RO system. If you currently have 1/8" fittings from your old membrane housing, you can reuse those fittings.
- If you would like to upgrade your RO System to use a higher Gallons Per Day membrane, please see the instructions near the bottom of our main Membrane Housing page.
- Reverse Osmosis System Recommended Care:
- Change your filters and membrane at the recommended frequency, and clean your system with a product like Sani-System SS96RO, an easy to use, pre-measured, reverse osmosis system sanitizer, available below.
