About POREFLON™ module

Made from PTFE characterized by superb chemical-, heat-resistance, and durability, POREFLONTM module is derived from a porous separation membrane that was developed using proprietary processing technologies. Specifically, POREFLONTM module can be used for various water treatment applications due to its high strength, washability (using various chemicals), easy handling (hydrophilic treatment), high water permeability, etc.

POREFLONTM has the following four principal features:

  1. PTFE offers excellent chemical resistance. POREFLONTM is chemically stable and does not degrade when exposed to virtually all chemicals.
  2. POREFLONTM is extremely tough and thus has a long service life.
  3. POREFLONTM is highly permeable to water thanks to its high porosity. The Illustration of POREFLONTM shows the microscopic structure of our POREFLONTM products. The white area is made of PTFE fibers. The black parts represent voids, or pores. The ratio of pore spaces to the total volume is referred to as the porosity. Without strength limitations and other restrictions, the porosity of POREFLONTM can be increased up to around 90%. A higher porosity implies less resistance to the passage of water and translates into higher water permeability.
  4. POREFLONTM has a high resistance to heat. This is also another of the excellent features of PTFE, the material used for POREFLONTM. In membrane filtration applications, POREFLONTM membrane modules will function up to 200ºC.
