DOW was invited to participate in a competitive field trial comparing five Dairy nanofiltration elements available on the market. The purpose was to determine which elements provide the best overall performance concentrating and demineralizing lactose over a period of 12 months.

Additionally, FILMTEC NF245 had 16 percent higher permeate flow than the competition.
