20150210 Sulzer Chemtech Ltd. - Mr. David Gladman & Mr. Jeffrey Felix –“Pervaporation and Vapour permeation: Scale-up with a hybrid bench test unit (BTU)”

Sulzer has a leading position in the design and installation of PV and VP systems (>200) Most applications are in dehydration of organic solvents, separation of organic mixtures and recovery of volatile valuables from aqueous mixtures in chemicals, pharma, food & fragrance, biofuel and bio-refinery. Their experience allows Sulzer to design full scale units on basis of their versatile BTU in which Sulzer tests new membranes, membranes & module geometries, applications, stability, flux, selectivity, process parameters.

The BTU, the underlying principles and the test approach were elucidated with the scale-up possibilities to flat polymer and tubular ceramic membranes. www.sulzer.com
