AV/SW series
  U/P series
Suitable for high viscosity solutions
Modules with larger lumen hollow fibers facilitate filtering high viscosity solutions.
Lager Membrane Area
Membrane module with large membrane surface area for high filtration capacity.
Hollow fiber membrane with double-skin structure (AV/SW series)
Double-skinned hollow fiber structure with a separating membrane layer on both the inner and outer surface ensures enhanced reliability.
Membrane Structure with Sharp Pore Size Distribution (U/P series)
A sponge structure with sharp pore size distribution at the membrane surface and a uniform internal structure that provide efficient filtration performance and increased membrane strength.
Cross Flow Filtration
Cross flow filtration controls accumulation of solids on the membrane surface and maintains high permeate flux.
Reverse Filtration Capable
In addition to the crossflow scouring, intermittent reverse filtration, is employed to remove solids that may accumulate on the membrane surface. This further facilitates stable performance and increases filtration capacity.
Simple Module Construction
Module construction is simple and consists of few parts for structural reliability and minimimum dead space to assure consistent permeate quality.
Chemical Compatibility
Membrane may be cleaned with a variety of chemicals over a wide pH range.
