POREX ® TMF 5 Tube Modules

Modular Filtration System

POREX is the leader in creating exceptional TMF filtration modules. Our filtration modules are designed to reduce the workload of your systems. The membrane/substrate composite used in our membrane filtration modules is a durable and lasting solution for solids removal. The PVDF membrane used in a modular filtration system can either be bonded to PVDF substrate or anchored to PE substrate as a part of the structural composite membrane.

5 Tubular Membrane Filter Modules

 


TMF Series Features:
  • Consistent, reliable solid/liquid separations and long service life
  • Unique support with PVDF membrane offers high performance tubular membrane with superior operating characteristics
  • Sintered PVDF substrate with PVDF membrane offers high temperature and improved chemical compatibility (pH range of 0–14)
  • PVDF/PVDF composite option offers increased abrasion resistance and enhanced membrane durability
  • Three distinct membrane pore sizes available on two different substrate options
  • Uniform, thermally-bonded omni-directional substrate pore structure provides an optimized support structure for tubular membranes and enhanced membrane durability
  • Now available in multiple tube quantities and diameters for increased surface area and flux
Tubular Membrane

Chemical Resistance:

POREX TMF modules are resistant to a broad spectrum of corrosive chemicals and reagents as well as pH ranges of 0 to 14. Typically, pilot feasibility tests are needed to determine the actual TMF module performance under real operating conditions.
