MEMBRANA’s Liqui-Cel® membrane contactors are devices that allow to remove or dissolve gases in liquids, playing on the gaz concentration difference between two distinct phase separated by a hydrophobic membrane (hollow fibers). For example, when degassing dissolved CO2 from an aqueous stream, the water flow on one side of the hollow fiber, and a sweep gas and/or vacuum is applied to the other side. Only the gases will pass through the pores into the gas side of the membrane.
Membrane contactors find applications mainly in O2 and CO2 degassing process, requiring a control of the concentration of dissolved gases : electronics, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, various industries… Many other applications are, however, also possible.
