Autopsying Membrane Separators (Part 1)

The Autopsying Concept and Benefits

The goal of our autopsy program is to learn about membrane failure modes both in mid service and at the membrane’s end of life. “The process is mutually beneficial for us and the customer,” said Mike Dobby. “We observe ways to improve the membrane quality and make system operation recommendations to users- to achieve the best possible performance and long membrane life.”

For years, our autopsy group has assisted in improving the quality of our membranes by indicating various findings which have led to product development strategies. See the photos below and check back with our blog next week for part 2 of the autopsying article.
