Applications of Membranes Made by TIPS Processes
Commercial microporous membranes formed by a TIPS process are used in medical as well as in industrial applications.
Typical medical applications for capillary membranes produced via a TIPS process are oxygenation and plasma separation.
TIPS membranes are used for filtration and pre-filtration of various process solutions in the semiconductor and microelectronics industry.
Food & Beverage
TIPS membranes are used for filtration and clarification of beverages. Sterile filtrations to extend the shelf life of beverages are also possible with SIPS membranes.
Hydrophobic TIPS membranes are excellent for the removal of gases from liquids, e.g. for the production of ultra-pure and gas-free water and for the controlled addition of gases to liquids.
