Membrane Module Constructions
Membrane module construction is seldom reported in the literature and especially this is the case for CMSMs. There are only two commercially available modules currently, one from Carbon Membranes Ltd (Israel) with hollow fiber configuration and the other from Blue Membranes GmbH (Germany) with honey comb configuration . In this chapter, a detailed description of the latter module is given. Information on the commercial modules based on hollow fiber CMSMs is scarcely available. Therefore, the apparatus used by Haraya and co-workers to prepare asymmetric capillary CMSMs is described.
