Download ROSA 9.1 now to begin recognizing the benefits today

ROSA (Reverse Osmosis System Analysis) design software continues to evolve and grow to meet your demanding system design needs. The latest version, ROSA 9.1, is now available to aid in system design using DOW FILMTEC™ elements, the highest quality RO and NF elements available globally.

Installation Instructions:

Uninstall any previous ROSA versions prior to installing ROSA 9.1. Removal of the program can be done through the Add/Remove feature on your computer.

  • Please note that Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, or higher, is required to use ROSA 9.1. If you have Windows 7 or Windows 8, you have the necessary version. If you have a previous version of Windows, you may need to download this file. To check which .NET Framework version you have, go to Start -- Control Panel -- Add or Remove Programs. All currently installed Microsoft .NET Framework versions will be listed here.
  • Please note, if you have Windows 7 or 8 Operating System, you will need to follow these additional instructions:
    • Right click on the shortcut to the program in the start menu
    • choose <Properties>
