About IPC® membranes & MMF modules

The IPC® membrane is a thin membrane envelope that consists of an integrated permeate channel (drainage channel for clean water), that is formed by the integration of an open 3D fabric structure. A membrane layer is applied directly to the structure during the membrane formation process and as such mechanically anchored. This warrants the ability to back pulse the membranes. This membrane layer ensures the actual filtration of water or wastewater.

The IPC® module concept complements the membrane open integrated permeate channel design by a large permeation and backwash header at two places. This causes an effective backwash over the complete length of the IPC® membrane.

IPC® modules can be mounted in a single, double or triple deck configuration. The packing density shown above is for the triple deck configuration.

The packing density describes the amount of membrane packed into a given space. It can be defined with reference to both the footprint and the volume: APD - The unitless ratio of the module membrane area to its footprint, where the footprint is defined as the cross-sectional area at the module base; VPD - The membrane area per unit module volume, which has units of m2 per m3 (or m-1) and equates to the APD value divided by the module height.
