The KPAK 10-inch UF module consists of a spiral-wound membrane element containing 462 sq. ft. (42.9 m2) of membrane area, which is double that of the 8-inch KPAK module that has been available for several years. The new 10-inch design achieves a higher permeate output relative to paint feed than other spiral membranes. The virtually zero by-pass design results in lower paint feed flow requirements and, consequently, additional savings in equipment costs because the system uses smaller pumps, less piping and fewer filters.
KPAK modules incorporate Victaulic® clamps that reduce work strain and safety hazards for operators and simplify module removal and disposal. Easy removal and disposal of the module as a single unit makes the KPAK 10-inch module an especially favorable choice for manufacturers seeking to update their electrocoat process. Fast, simple and safe handling reduces downtime and increases output.
