Vladimir, Russia – JSC “RM Nanotech” brand Membranium – the only Russian manufacturer of membrane flat sheet for reverse osmosis, nanofiltration and ultrafiltration and spiral wound membrane elements on the basis of flat sheet, has earned certification to NSF/ANSI 61, the American National Standard for Drinking Water System Components – Health Effects for its KM (sea water) reverse osmosis elements from global public health organization NSF International.
NSF International led the development of the American National Standards for all chemicals used to treat drinking water and materials/products coming into contact with drinking water. Today, government agencies around the world utilize NSF International standards to verify the safety and performance of water treatment chemicals, pipes and plumbing components and to ensure these products do not leach harmful levels of contaminants into drinking water.
To earn NSF/ANSI 61 certification, JSC “RM Nanotech’s” KM series (sea water) reverse osmosis elements were subject to rigorous testing and evaluation to verify the products met requirements for use in treating drinking water. NSF International also audited JSC “RM Nanotech’s” manufacturing facility to verify compliance to the standard requirements.
JSC “RM Nanotech’s” KM series (sea water) reverse osmosis elements and related marketing materials can now bear the NSF/ANSI 61 mark and are listed on NSF International’s website: http://info.nsf.org/Certified/PwsComponents/Listings.asp?Company=C0291493&Standard=061
NSF International works closely with state, North American and international regulatory authorities, to gain recognition and acceptance for the NSF mark.
About NSF International: NSF International is a global independent organization that writes standards and protocols, and tests and certifies products for the food, water and consumer goods industries to minimize adverse health effects and protect the environment. Founded in 1944, NSF is a Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization Collaborating Center on Food Safety, Water Quality and Indoor Environment.
NSF/ANSI 61 sets health effects criteria for many water system products, components and materials. NSF/ANSI 61 addresses crucial aspects of drinking water system components such as whether contaminants that leach or migrate from the product/material into the drinking water are above acceptable levels in finished waters.
