DIC Corp. has introduced its proprietary Separel hollow fiber membrane modules for wastewater and drinking water degasification. These modules remove dissolved gases—such as oxygen and carbon dioxide—in water to prevent the formation of rust and bacteria in water treatment systems.
Separel modules can be installed in series within the same water treatment system to ensure sufficient degasification and achieve the desired ppb level for various water treatment applications.
The size of the Separel module is directly related to the flow rate and vacuum pressure of the water treatment system. Smaller versions of the Separel modules can fit in a row in water treatment systems with smaller dimensions, while a water treatment plant, which has a higher flow rate and vacuum pressure, would require a larger membrane surface area to degas vast amounts of water, therefore requiring the Separel EF-120 module, the largest size in the product line.
The Separel EF-120 module supports flow rates ranging from 3,000 to 50,000 L/hour, features minimal pressure loss and utilizes polypropylene housing for durability.
“Our customers want water treatment solutions that ensure their operations are efficient, reliable and strengthened by global technical support,” said Christine Medordi, global marketing manager for processed products, DIC Intl. (USA) LLC. “Unlike conventional membrane modules, Separel hollow fiber membrane modules are developed and manufactured in-house to meet DIC’s high quality standards and exceed our customers’ expectations for performance. Using our global footprint, DIC also provides distribution and technical support in North America, Europe and Asia.”
