The 10-inch diameter KPAK™ ultrafiltration module for the electrocoat industry is designed to offer increased efficiencies that significantly reduce required floor space, installation time and operating costs. The module consists of a spiral-wound membrane element containing 462 sq ft (42.9 m2) of membrane area, which is double that of the eight-inch KPAK module that has been available for several years. The 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.
