Re: Types of Reverse Osmosis membranes
There are essentially two types: CTA (cellulose triacetate) and TFC (thin
film composite). TFC membranes cannot be exposed to chlorine, such as
that coming out of tapwater, therefore a carbon prefilter is required.
CTA, on the other hand, must have chlorinated water in order to prevent
bacterial growth on the membrane material itself. In general,
"high-performance" membranes are of one of these two types. For the most
part, TFC membranes have a higher removal rate than CTA.
