Telescoping - Reverse Osmosis Systems Print E-mail

Telescoping - Telescoping refers to the longitudinal unraveling of spiral wound elements which results in the reverse osmosis membrane leaves extending beyond the spacing material between the leaves. This can be caused by hydraulic surges or by temperature extremes. Telescoping is physically damaging to the construction of the RO membrane element. Most manufactures install anti-telescoping devices (ATD’s) on their elements. Depending on the severity, it may effect salt rejection.
