Liqui-Cel MM Series Degasifier

Liqui-Cel MM Series products can save the time and expense associated with inaccurate analyser readings in laboratories and testing facilities by removing dissolved gases from water and other fluids. By removing air, these devices also prevent bubble formation which can potentially alter to composition of the solution be analysed.

The new 1 x 5.5 inch Liqui-Cel MM Series contactor is smaller than the typical 3M Liqui-Cel Extra-Flow contactor designs. This Liqui-Cel MM Series was developed to process liquid flows from a few ml/min to 500 ml/min. These small contactors are very robust and are rated to 60 psi at ambient temperatures. The 1 x 5.5 Liqui-Cel MM Series contactor utilizes John Guest® quick connect fittings promoting ease of use for many degassing applications. The 1 x 5.5 contactor replaces an older style Liqui-Cel MM Series that had a lower capacity.

The 1 x 5.5 Liqui-Cel MM Series utlizes Celgard® X50 hollow fiber membrane, which is a thick-walled microporous hydrophobic polypropylene that allows excellent gas transfer with liquids. Gas diffuses from the liquid stream to the gas stream of the hollow fiber with the use of a small vaccum pump or an eductor.

The contactor is designed to fit into very small spaces in laboratory or analytical environments. It is compatible with a wide range of fluids and applications and it is FDA compliant. The contactors are already being used in lab scale analytical equipment for degassing water and buffer solutions.

The contactors can be plugged right into existing systems or they can be easily designed into any new system.
