Membrana has developed a new 12" ultrafiltration membrane module. The Liqui-Flux® ultrafiltration module incorporates a hydrophilic Polyethersulfone (PES) hollow fiber membrane with an inner diameter of 0.8 mm and a MWCO of 80 kDa. The distinctive three-layer membrane morphology effectively combines the critical tasks of sustained mechanical strength and excellent flux rate with outstanding removal efficiencies. When tested side-by-side with three competitive filtration devices, the modules used less than half of the energy of any of the others to deliver the same performance.
