The membrane and module manufacturer CUT Membrane Technology, since early 2013 a subsidiary of the Bürkert Group, has presented a new product family of T-CUT tubular modules at the ACHEMA trade fair. The robust tubular modules made of PVDF and PES are available with different membrane materials and cut-offs for individual membrane solutions.
The membranes of the T-CUT tubular modules, which are applied to high-quality supporting material, are designed for durability and a long service life. Due to the particularly high stability of the membranes and the option of cleaning them with chemicals, the T-CUT tubular modules can be used even in demanding applications such as the treatment of pickling baths.
Other areas where the new tubular modules are used successfully include the metalworking industry, oil/water separation and the separation of biomass from water. Suitable for a high concentration of solids, the modules are available in lengths from 1,000 to 3,100mm with membrane tube diameters from 5.2 to 25.4 mm. The body, with an outer diameter of 25 to 300mm, is available in the following materials: stainless steel, PP, PVC and GFRP. The pressure range of T-CUT tubular modules extends from 1 to 10 bar, and the temperature range is from 5 to 60°C.
Established in April 2004, CUT Membrane Technology in Erkrath, Germany produces numerous innovative tubular, hollow fibre, PP and spiral wound modules for the separation of liquid media. These modules are increasingly being equipped with membranes from in-house production at CUT. Typical applications for the membrane solutions are to be found in such diverse areas as chemicals, environmental technology, foods and metalworking. The company offers practically oriented consultation in the design and planning of filtration systems as well as other services.
