In order to characterize Gas Separation membranes with single or mixed gases, Convergence developed a Gas Separation pilot. The unit allows the user to create their own customized feed gas composition and perform experiments at user defined flowrates, pressures or permeabilities and temperatures.

The user-friendly software interface records flows, temperatures and pressures and allows the creation of individual test scripts. It also allows automatic calculation of permeability, permeance , TMP (trans-membrane pressure) and other user defined calculations. The system allows you to attach all kinds of flatsheet, tubular or hollow fiber membranes and thus makes it extremely flexible. A 47mm flat sheet membrane module and heating system is included.

  • Feed flow range: 0,16 – 25 nL/min (can be adjusted to meet your needs)
  • Feed flow accuracy: < 1 %
  • Permeate flow range: 2 – 500 g/h (can be adjusted to meet your needs)
  • Permeate flow accuracy: < 0,5 %
  • Pressure range: 2 – 100 bar
  • Pressure accuracy: < 0,1 %
  • Temperature range: 0 – 120°C (different temperature ranges optional)
  • Dimensions: 70 x 26 x 38 cm
  • The system is highly customizeable and can for example be designed to support operation at up to 250°C or allow the introduction of vapors through controlled evaporation and mixing.
  • Different sensoring options such as dew point detectors or an automated GC are also available.
