SINGAPORE--(Dow Water & Process Solutions (DW&PS), a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:DOW), has successfully launched an ingredient branding program for DOW FILMTEC™ reverse osmosis (RO) for residential water treatment systems. Recently, Dow signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a company in India, and companies in Russia and China signed ingredient branding agreements that enable them to highlight DW&PS RO technology in their home drinking water systems.)--
“DOW FILMTEC™ RO Inside provides Dow the platform to partner with regional brand owners in the residential water treatment market and bring clean drinking water to consumer homes around the world – a subject of growing concern in many countries,” said Dr. Wang Xiaolan, Asia Pacific Commercial Director, DW&PS.
There are a variety of home water filtration and purification technologies available in the market place. Of these, reverse osmosis is among the most effective and widely used technology for rejecting contaminants, hardness and disease-causing bacteria, cysts and viruses.
“Not all reverse osmosis elements are created equal,” said Rajat Mehta, Associate Marketing Director, Residential, DW&PS. “DOW FILMTEC™ RO elements are one of the most widely used water purification technologies in the world. Every minute around the globe, Dow processes more than 57 million liters of high quality water.”
Compared to other filtration technologies that rely on a screen or filter to remove particles, an RO system uses a membrane that can reject an extremely high percentage of dissolved impurities that a screen or filter might let through. In fact, RO can take out virtually all contaminants and impurities, resulting in clean, safe and better tasting water.
Using a DOW FILMTEC™ RO Inside home water purification system can help consumers enjoy:
- High water quality, straight from the tap
- Low impurity rates for water
- Great taste for cooking and drinking
World-class quality and process checks ensure that DOW FILMTEC™ RO elements:
- Last longer – Exacting durability for fewer element replacements
- Perform better – One of the lowest failure rates in the industry
- Produce more water – Higher flow rates (20 percent compared to other RO elements) so water is readily available
From hospitals and community drinking water to bottled water companies, people rely on Dow reverse osmosis technology when clean water is essential.
