Design, Construction, Field Testing and Monitoring of Membrane Systems

Our group has successfully carried out numerous demonstration projects for membrane operations. We are competent in hydraulic design, construction and operation of membrane systems of different technologies while considering a combination of different technological approaches. Our on-site demonstration units are often microsystems which help to demonstrate the technological feasibility and on request, would include a full-scale design representing a pre-commercial product. We also design customised modules and platforms to suit specific conditions (eg. testing for hazardous and aggressive fluids).

In the recent past we have worked on air conditioning systems using membrane contactors. These systems make use of liquid-air contactors, as opposed to predominantly used steam, spray or direct evaporation systems to regulate air humidity.
