Small, inline, efficient degassing with membranes

For a high level of consistency and control


Filtration and degassing

The use of coating fluids and liquids is critical to the manufacturing of many medical devices. It’s essential that these coating liquids are clean from particulate impurities and are degassed to remove residual bubbles, to ensure avoidance of product failures and defects.

  • Membrane Contactors

    Membrane Contactors

    3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors are used for degassing liquids around the world providing a wide breadth of high performing, durable and scalable products to improve operational efficiency.

    Offering in-depth technical expertise along with comprehensive training and education, 3M can work collaboratively to provide debubbling solutions that meet your MedTech requirements and expectations.

  • 3M Liqui-Cel SP Series Membrane Contactors

    3M Liqui-Cel SP Series Membrane Contactors

    3M Liqui-Cel SP Series Membrane Contactors utilise a polyolefin membrane that is appropriate for degassing liquids such as the low surface tension fluids used in critical medical device coatings. Also ideal for debubbling contact lens monomer, these membrane contactors play a vital role in the contact lens manufacturing industry and are available in a variety of product configurations.

    The larger capacity contactors utilise the extra-flow baffle design. Smaller radial flow designs are ideal for flow rates lower than 0.5 gpm (1.9 L/min).

    The deployment of 3M high efficiency filtration produces clean fluids which are then amenable to removal of residual gases using 3M Liqui-Cel Contactors to achieve effective debubbling of the process fluid.

    3M™ Betapure™ AU series and 3M™ Betafine™ XL Filter Cartridge Series

    3M Betapure AU and Betafine XL series filters set the standard for filtration performance to provide:

    • Precise contaminant reduction
    • Consistent fluid quality
    • Superior on-stream service life
