Membrana GmbH, a leading independent producer of high quality membrane and membrane devices, recently announced the introduction of the W20 3M Liqui-Flux Ultrafiltration Module with 91m2 of membrane surface area. This new product with its high filtration surface area allows customers to build ultrafiltration systems using fewer modules and less equipment.

Dr. Oliver Becker, 3M Liqui-Flux Business Manager says, “The new W20 Liqui-Flux® Ultrafiltration Module provides 20% more effective membrane surface area than we have in our product line today. This additional membrane area along with the product’s configurable port options provide our customers with the economics and flexibility they need to compete in today’s water treatment environment.”

The 3M Liqui-Flux W20 is a durable and robust ultrafiltration module that can process flow rates of 4.5-14 m3/h in a single device. The module utilizes the proven UltraPES membrane in an inside-out  flow configuration and delivers consistent, high quality filtrate. Many systems using 3M Liqui-Flux Ultrafiltration Modules are currently operating in process water, pre-treatment to RO, drinking water and waste water re-use applications around the world.
