Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Quick question on desalator membrane replacement
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I checked again the pictures I have. The V seal is upstream in the high pressure circuit. The tubes are marked with an arrow showing the high pressure stream direction. We have 3 tubes on our Duo 100.
First one is:
High pressure input end (red tape) -> tube -> bobbin #1 end (blue tape)
Bobbin #2 end (blue tape) <- tube <- bobbin #1 end (red tape)
Bobbin #2 end (red tape) -> tube -> high pressure brine output (blue tape)
So, for us, the V seal always goes on the red taped end.
From what I understand you are saying, one of your membranes is the wrong way round (the upstream one). I don't know if it matters.
(In French but pictures are clear. I don't agree with all advice regarding the method to remove the end caps or the use of lithium grease but nevermind)
Hope that's clearer
