POREX ® 61 Tube Modules TMF Modules

61 Tube Module Water Treatment Applications

Structural membrane tubes from POREX are the focus of our industry leading 61 tube membrane modules. Created to increase the recycling capacity of water treatment systems, the 61 tube modules are ideal for power plant water treatment, steel mill water treatment, cooling tower blowdown water treatment and other high flow applications requiring effective, durable microfiltration and ultrafiltration. The structural composite membrane features PVDF membrane bonded to PVDF substrate or anchored to PE substrate.  Now available in a 20nm Ultrafilter.

61 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.
