The spiral wound element type is the workhorse in the membrane world. The spiral wound element design was originally made exclusively for water desalination, but the very compact design and the low price made it attractive to other industries. After a lot of trial and failure, redesigned elements emerged which can be used for a variety of industrial applications in the dairy industry, the pulp and paper industry, for high purity water, and at high temperature and extreme pH. However, the number of membrane companies who really can and will develop and supply spiral sound elements for extreme applications in in many cases limited to one.
