Sun Chemical Advanced Materials delivers SEPAREL® hollow fiber membrane modules for liquid degassing, a proprietary technology from the DIC Corporation. SEPAREL modules are optimized for the degasification of various liquids, including water, inkjet ink, and a range of corrosive chemicals.
SEPAREL hollow fiber membrane modules remove dissolved gases, such as Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide, in water to prevent the formation of defects and bubbles in water treatment facilities, inkjet printers, oil and gas processes, and semiconductor processing. Unlike traditional degasification systems, SEPAREL can achieve parts-per-billion levels using only vacuuming and without the need for Nitrogen (N2) sweep gas.
The size of each SEPAREL module is directly related to the flow rate, degassing performance, and pressure drop. Regardless of the size of the application, SEPAREL modules can be placed in series to achieve exceptional degassing performance in applications with extreme flow rates. For intensive applications, the SEPAREL EF-120 module is the pinnacle of membrane degasification technology, supporting flow rates ranging from 3,000 to 50,000 liters per hour with minimal pressure loss.
SEPAREL hollow fiber membrane modules are deliver degasification performance for:

Degassing applications in the oil industry are numerous; steam is used in nearly all processes for refining oil. Therefore, water must be treated to prevent scale and pipe pitting through the removal of dissolved ions and dissolved gasses such as oxygen and CO2. Boiler feed water for producing steam must also be free of dissolved CO2 and oxygen; SEPAREL® degassing membranes can remove both gasses in a single compact system.
In the beverage industry, there are many opportunities for degassing with a SEPAREL® hollow fiber membrane due to the fact that water treatment is not as elaborate as other industries. The main focuses of water treatment in the beverage industry are the removal of harmful bacteria and dissolved chemicals for health reasons as well as the conservation of water’s natural flavor by eliminating dissolved ions, particles, and chlorine.
In the Semiconductor industry, raw water is treated in two steps; the first treatment is used to produce “make-up water” and the second phase involves turning make-up water into ultrapure water. This ultrapure water is then used for the final rinsing of fabricated wafers.
In the power generation industry, water quality is specified by boiler and turbine manufacturers. The removal of dissolved ions and dissolved gasses, such as oxygen and carbon dioxide, must be reduced to extremely low concentrations long before the water enters boilers for steam production.
In modern pharmaceutical water processes, the implementation of a reverse osmosis system followed by a membrane degassing unit for CO2 removal and an EDI or CDI unit is common practice. SEPAREL® degassing units for CO2 removal allow for continuous production of purified water with conductivity of less than 1.3 µS/cm and EDI or CDI units are utilized to polish treated water to the required specifications.
In the semiconductor industry, ultrapure water usage can be in order of 2 to 4 million gallons a day. The entire ultrapure water treatment process is comprised of two segments: makeup water and a high-purity water loop.
In recent years, hollow fiber membrane degassing modules have become an ideal option for CO2 removal when compared to harmful, costly chemicals and bulky deaerating towers.
At Aquatech 2017, Sun Chemical Corporation and its parent company, the DIC Corporation, unveiled two new SEPAREL® hollow fiber membrane modules for decarbonation. The EF-120-Q and EF-040P-Q modules extend the life of ion-exchange resins used in the production of pure and ultrapure water by utilizing a proprietary hollow fiber membrane that removes 1.7 times more Carbon Dioxide than any existing SEPAREL module.
It may sound intimidating, but water that has been treated to “ultrapure” condition is more than necessary in many applications. This highly-cleansed product is a fundamental part of many industrial operations, from the medicine we need to get well to the power we rely on in our daily lives. But, as the name implies, it’s no small task to get average influent to the ultrapure level.
SEPAREL hollow fiber membrane modules from the DIC Corporation provide exceptional degasification performance with a proprietary non-porous membrane which utilizes a Surface Skin membrane (SS membrane) for enhanced degasification. Available in both internal perfusion (PF series) and external perfusion (EF Series) varieties, SEPAREL modules are optimized for a variety of degassing applications.
Separel is a degassing module produced by Sun Chemical Advanced Materials to remove dissolved oxygen from liquid. Originally developed to remove oxygen from ink, the product also has application in the water industry.
Sun Chemical Advanced Materials’ parent company, the DIC Corporation, has developed new durable PPS compounds for valves, connectors, impellers, mixing cartridges, and housings.
Various liquids, including water, are commonly used in biochemistry analyzers and heated close to human body temperature. This heating process causes dissolved gasses to become oversaturated and change into bubbles which cause defects, including sporadic dispensing and inaccurate quantitative analysis of the reactive substance. Thankfully, SEPAREL® modules from the DIC Corporation eliminate these defects.
Sun Chemical Advanced Materials’ parent company, the DIC Corporation, is pleased to announce that it has expanded production capacity of its large size degasification module (LDM), SEPAREL® EF-120, by building a new plant.
Professor Takaaki Kajita and Dr. Arthur B. McDonald were jointly awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics for using the Super‐Kamiokande Detector to discover neutrino oscillations which confirm that neutrinos are not massless as previously believed.
Sun Chemical Advanced Materials is pleased to announce that the Official SEPAREL® Website is now live. This new, immersive website details how SEPAREL assists the degasification and aeration of water by utilizing a proprietary non-porous membrane from the DIC Corporation.
The SEPAREL PF series removes dissolved gases in water through a tube-shaped gas permeable membrane composed of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). Gasses dissolved in water flow through the tube and are removed due to the pressure difference of the gases inside and outside of the tube, thus creating a vacuum outside of the tube. This video explains how the PF series works.
The SEPAREL EF series uses external flow which allows water to randomly flow over the hollow fibers and, in turn, contact dissolved gases more frequently. Therefore, desgassing performance with the EF series is higher than the PF series which utilizes internal flow. Also, a lower pressure drop means that larger modules can be used. This video explains how the EF series works.
The small SEPAREL EF series is optimized to remove dissolved gases in water applications with smaller flow rates. The EF series uses external flow which allows water to randomly flow over the hollow fibers and, in turn, contact dissolved gases more frequently. Therefore, desgassing performance with the EF series is higher than the PF series which utilizes internal flow. This video explains how the EF series works.
A proprietary technology of the DIC Corporation, SEPAREL hollow fiber membrane modules are optimized for degassing and aerating water. By utilizing an innovative surface skin layer, only gas can permeate in or out of the membrane. This video introduces the benefits of SEPAREL and where is it most commonly used.
