Vibratory Membrane Filtration System Targets
Low Flow Industrial Applications
February 10, 2003
New Logic Research, Inc.,
makers of the VSEP vibratory membrane filtration system, today announced the
availability of the ultra compact P-50, a new addition to its VSEP product line
aimed at applications with process flows up to five gallons per minute.
The VSEP P-50 provides all of the benefits of its larger
predecessor, the VSEP Series i, including superior fouling resistance, unbeatable
materials compatibility, and high solids capabilities up to 70%.
“For over 15 years, customers have been coming to us
with uniquely challenging separation problems. Often times, VSEP is their only
option,” said Chief Operating Officer, Greg Johnson.
“Unfortunately, for some of the low flow applications,
a full scale VSEP system is beyond some budgetary limitations. The P-50 removes
that barrier to entry, providing an affordable, powerful system with all the
benefits of the full scale units.”
The key to VSEP’s fouling resistance is its patented
vibrational drive system. The filter pack vibrates approximately 50 times per
second at an amplitude of ¾ of an inch, generating incredible shear
force directly on the membrane surface.
“The vibration enables us to perform high solids separations
in a single pass—something that is unthinkable in a traditional crossflow
membrane system,” adds Johnson.
Fully customizable, the P-50 is designed for superior performance
across a wide application base, ranging from river water to chemical processing
“VSEP has the flexibility to handle virtually any process
stream. If it can flow, we can separate it,” says Johnson.
Like the VSEP Series i, the P-50 employs an ultra compact
design. In just six square feet of floor space, the P-50 can fit into the most
crowded production or pilot plant environment.
The VSEP P-50 is in production now. To learn more about the
