3M is a leading independent supplier of high quality microporous membrane and membrane devices that customers recognize as reliable, technically innovative separation solutions in microfiltration, ultrafiltration and gas transfer applications.

As pioneers in developing separation solutions using membrane technology, 3M membranes and devices are have been used in industrial liquid processes around the world for more than 40 years. Common industries include:

  • Process and drinking water
  • Pharmaceutical & medical products
  • Biotechnology
  • Food & beverage
  • Microelectronics
  • Power & steam generation
  • Inks & Coatings

3M membrane and membrane devices include ultrafiltration modules, products for dissolved gas control in process liquids, and OEM membrane that is integrated into filtration devices.

3M’s membrane contactors for degassing can lower operating and maintenance costs of process water systems by reducing dissolved gases in applications, such as lowering resin regeneration frequency by removing the dissolved CO2 that loads the mixed beds. Membrane deaeration is also used to strip dissolved oxygen from make-up and feedwater to prevent corrosion and reduce fuel consumption by lowering steam deaerator vent rates. There are many other applications where dissolved gas control with gas transfer membranes can reduce operating costs.

3M’s Ultrafiltration modules can enable more economical system designs due to the high filtration surface area in each module. Microfiltration modules are used in wine clarification can eliminate several filtrations process steps that reduce operating cost with minimal impact on wine quality.

Multiple OEM membrane options with high throughput and retention characteristics are also available for integration into end use filtration devices.
