Small, in-line, efficient bubble removal with membranes
Bubbles can cause process problems in many analytical systems and process water systems if not removed. MiniModules®, MicroModules®, and Liqui-Cel® Membrane Contactors offer a compact in-line means to remove bubbles from many liquids.
Systems that introduce changes in pressures throughout the process will have issues with foaming or excess bubbles coming out of solution if dissolved gasses are not removed first. Degassing Modules offer an easy in-line means to debubble.
In analytical and measurement systems, bubbles can negatively impact the readings of the equipment. Bubbles can be read as particles, for example, in particle monitors. Again degas modules can remove all of the bubbles in one simple step.
Bubbles are also known to negatively impact cleaning processes with megasonic and ultrasonic equipment. In megasonic cleaning baths, bubbles can reduce the cleaning efficiency by refracting or absorbing the ultrasonic energy. At the same time retaining a certain amount of some gasses, typically nitrogen or hydrogen, in the bath is beneficial. Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors can provide total gas control in these applications to enhance the cleaning efficiency.
Bubbles can also be formed in water if excess nitrogen has been absorbed from a nitrogen blanketed storage tank. Once the water leaving the tank is pressurized, the nitrogen will come out of solution in the form of bubbles. The bubble and foaming problems may be solved by simply removing the nitrogen from the water as it exits the tank with Liqui-Cel degassing modules.
Membrane Contactors are available in several sizes to meet the needs of many industries. MiniModules® and MicroModules® are the ideal choice for small scale system debubbling needs. Membrana is the leader in membrane and membrane module development. We manufacture the membrane and membrane contactor and have degassing modules ready to ship from inventory to meet all of your debubbling and degassing needs.
