The Gigamem vessel is available in stainless steel and polyamide to suit a variety of applications.
World’s Highest Capacity, Most Compact Hollow Fiber Ultrafiltration Membrane Module
The Gigamem UF240 module, like both of the modules in the Gigamem family, is operated in dead-end, outside-in filtration mode. Each self-supporting 24" UF240 module contains 52 individual fiber bundles, which can be independently installed, inspected, repaired, and replaced. Because of the unmatched compactness of its internal design, each module offers a filtration surface of 5,800 ft2 (540 m2).

Gigamem modules have unmatched versatility due to their high capacity, ease of maintenance access, small footprint, and durable, chemical-resistant Neophil PVDF membranes. Applications include:
Due to their compactness, Gigamem modules are uniquely well-suited for applications in which a small system footprint, design flexibility, or containerization is desirable.
