Sterlitech is proud to offer Synder Filtration’s recently developed ultrafiltration membranes, the PX, PY, and PZ Polyacrylonotrile (PAN) membranes, as pre-cut test coupons, sheets, and disks. Designed to be ideal for oil removal in wastewater treatment applications, these new membranes can fill critical process requirements where the presence of oils in industrial effluent hinder downstream processes.
“New regulations on industrial wastewater discharge and quality requirements for water reuse make it increasingly necessary for companies to find an efficient and cost-effective method to separate emulsified oils from wastewater,” said Sterlitech President Mark Spatz. “We added the PX, PY, and PZ membranes to provide our customers an alternative to existing standards and help them find the best fit for their application.”
The new PAN membranes have molecular weight cut-offs (MWCO) of 400 kDa (PX), 100 kDa (PY), and 30 kDa (PZ) and, in addition to excelling at oil removal, Synder’s PAN membranes are also more hydrophilic and have a lower fouling propensity compared to PVDF membranes for wastewater treatment applications.
All of Sterlitech’s flat sheet membrane varieties can be purchased in 305 mm x 305 mm or larger sheets. In addition, they are available in precut coupons for use in the Sepa CF filtration cell, CF042 filtration cell, and most stirred cells. Custom membrane sizes are also available upon request.
Sterlitech Corporation provides superior laboratory products, specializing in flat sheet filter membranes and bench scale testing equipment for a variety of industries, including occupational health and safety, petrochemical, fossil fuels and biotech. For precision and accuracy, Sterlitech’s membrane disc filters, filter holders, silt density index test kits, syringe filters, and capsule filters are consistently relied upon to assure exceptional results.
