Liqui-Cel Literature

  1. 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors

    The presence of dissolved gases in a liquid can mean the difference between high quality and headaches. The same gases that give beverages their distinctive flavor and fizz can corrode boiler equipment or cause defects in microelectronics. For over 20 years, 3M’s advanced gas transfer membrane technology has been used to precisely control dissolved gases in many applications.

  2. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors For Steam-Generating Power Plants

    Power plants generating steam balance cost, efficiency and reliability with environmental considerations while supplying energy to the world. Degasified water plays a critical role in generating the energy used to heat and cool homes and businesses while protecting vital capital equipment.

  3. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors For The Beverage Industry

    We owe some of the sparkle, taste and texture of our favorite drinks to dissolved gases. Whether removing oxygen to help extend shelf life or adding fizz, gas control systems help the beverage industry improve product quality from the first sip to the last drop.

  4. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors

    From wide-format graphics to printed tees, ink jet production is a growing market. Faced with high customer expectations for print quality and fast turnaround, printers depend on technologies that help keep the presses running without interruption. And without smudging the fine print.

  5. Capturing Ammonia In Flue Gas Condensate Treatment For Biomass Power Stations With 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors

    Heat and power generation in biofuel engine cogeneration plants has become increasingly important as process industries look for more economical and environmentally friendly ways to produce energy.

  6. Rokeby Generating Station Saves 50% In Capital Expense By Using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ EXF-14x28 Series Membrane Contactors To Remove CO₂ To Extend Mixed Bed Resin Life

    Lincoln Electric Systems (LES) recently commissioned a membrane decarbonation system using  3M™ Liqui-Cel™ EXF-14x28 Series Membrane Contactors to remove CO2 prior to their mixed bed deionizers.

  7. Degassing Sea Water Has Never Been This Compact, Efficient, And Adaptable

    3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors offer a modular skid option for off-shore oil platforms that is significantly smaller and lighter than traditional vacuum towers.

  8. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Provide An Easy, Flexible Solution For Managing Dissolved Oxygen In Hard Cider

    Controlling dissolved oxygen (DO) levels during beverage production is vital for ensuring consistent product quality and shelf life. This is particularly true for canning, where high DO levels can cause breakdown of the can lining, corrosion and even leaking – which in turn can result in product waste and customer dissatisfaction. In some cases, can supplier warranties have exclusions for high DO levels.

  9. Hot CIP Sanitization Procedure For 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors In Stainless Steel Housings

    Hot Clean-In-Place (CIP) sanitization is commonly used to combat microbial growth in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries. Performed frequently as a prevention strategy, hot water sanitization is a requirement for high purity water (HPW) for United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.).

  10. Oxygen Removal From Feedwater Of A Central District Heating System Using 3M Liqui-Cel

    A Netherlands power station installed 3M Liqui-Cel membrane contractors for O2 removal. This case study explains how the membrane system exceeded expectations, achieving oxygen removal down to 5 ppb.
