Suitable for separation, purification and concentration of laboratory beaker scale samples
Perform Laboratory Experiments with Small Volume Samples
Enables determination of separation performance and a convenient means for selecting the appropriate membrane for each application.
Enables obtaining valuable filtration performance vs. time data to enable appropriate membrane selection.
Large Selection of Modules
An extensive lineup of Pencil scale modules to with duplicate most of Asahi's production scale UF and MF module membranes.
In order to accommodate a large variety of feed solutions and applications, Asahi Kasei offers an extensive selection of modules with a variety of membrane materials, molecular weight cut-offs, pore sizes, and membrane fiber diameters.
Cross-Flow Filtration
Unlike dead-end filration, passing the feed solution over the inner membrane surface prevents suspended solids from accumulating on the membrane surface and provides for stable filtration performance.
Precise Separation Characteristics (MF)
Proprietary Asahi Kasei technology enables manufacture of membranes with a sharp pore size distribution.
Double Skin Structure (UF)
Both the inner and outer surfaces of the hollow fiber membrane have an ultrafiltration membrane skin layer. This construction makes for a significantly more robust and durable membrane for filtering a variety of feed solutions.
