Thermally Induced Phase Separation (TIPS) manufacturing results in PVDF membranes with a high crystalline structure that are extremely durable and that have high chemical tolerance. TIPS membranes have been proven to provide much longer service life than membranes manufactured using other manufacturing techniques. Scinor has over one hundred installations in service. Customers are looking for choices when purchasing replacement modules particularly when performance of the original membranes was poor or the cost of the replacement has been too high. Scinor provides retrofit solutions for nearly all major membrane vendor equipment.
Scinor modules provide a direct retrofit for all major membrane vendors’ installations; that is, Scinor’s modules can retrofit installations with no special hardware, no programming changes, and no process or cleaning protocol adjustments. This means that Scinor offers a choice when replacing what once was a proprietary system – this lowers replacement costs to the end-users and also provides a TIPS PVDF membrane and all the benefits that TIPS brings – greater mechanical strength, higher chemical tolerance, and greater permeability.
