Basic parameters and characteristics of FOLIPOR membranes


The basic material



10 µm;


320 µm;

pore diameter

0.1, 0.2, 0.4, ... 3.0 µm;

spread of the pore diameter

less then 4%;

density of pores

from 103 up to 3•109 cm-2;

stability in the range of temperatures

up to 125°C (possibility of sterilisation in digester);

absence of the hydroscopness

swelling in water less then 0.5%;

opportunity for regeneration

by washing of membranes by a tangential flow or by a pulsing return flow;

stability of low temperatures

connected with cryogenics;

chemical stability

to the majority of acids and organic solvents, diluted solutions of alkalis;

small own weight and small contents of ashes,

which is essential in quantitative element analysis by neutron activation and optical microscopy;

high light transmission

sufficient for microscopic investigations.

Permeability of  
FOLIPOR membranes for various liquids and gases strongly depends on the pore size.
