Superior strength of the patented* Porex Tubular Membrane allows higher operating and backwash pressures for a higher flux and reduced system footprint.
Structural Membrane Tubes Are Designed to Perform
The patented* Porex Tubular Membrane Filters are designed to fit new and existing tubular membrane systems. In operation, a fluid, such as chemically pre-treated wastewater, flows through the cross flow membrane tubes at high velocity, sufficient to maintain turbulent flow. At typical operating pressures of 20–80 psi, clean fluid is forced through the pores of the PVDF membrane, while suspended particulates remain in the retentate stream. The turbulent flow of the retentate stream prevents the build-up of particles on the inner surface of the membrane tube, providing high flux and prolonged filter life. This method of turbulent cross flow membrane filtration with Porex’s large bore tubular design may eliminate the need for prefiltration and should routinely handle high solids levels up to 5% by weight. * US Patent 7674517
