PVM-094 features include:
- Available membranes: Hybrid Silica, PDMS, Optimised Silica
- Pressure housing: SS316L
- Membrane area: 0,1 m2 per element; max. installed area is 0,7m2
Pervatech's claims that its Hybrid Silica membrane technology is a real breakthrough in separation technology, enabling the purification of a diversity of industrial solvents. Impressive reduction in investments comes within reach with savings up to 75% on equipment and 30 to 50% reduction on energy usage.
The company says that the most economical use is to be found in breaking water/organic azeotropes, in dehydration of condensation reaction mixtures and as add on to distillation processes to expand capacity.
