Air Gap Membrane Distillation Cell

Sterlitech’s “plug and play” AGMD test cell is a bench-scale cross/tangential flow test cell that mimics the conditions representative of a large-scale AGMD system while using minimal amounts of membrane or product. Air Gap Membrane Distillation is a thermally driven separation technique  in which  vapors travel through a hydrophobic membrane.  The standard AGMD cell has a membrane active area of 45.6 cm2 (7.1 in2) and an air gap of 5.6 mm (0.22 in).  Note: AGMD cell may also be custom made.

Membrane Distillation (MD) is widely employed in separation processes such as:

  • Desalination
  • Concentration in food industries
  • Acid manufacturing
  • Removing organic and heavy metals
  • Treating radioactive waste

Sterlitech carries membranes specifically for membrane distillation:

These membranes vary in terms of pore size, thickness, polymer, which in turn effect permeability, chemical compatibility, and water entry pressure. All are hydrophobic, and have different maximum operating temperatures.
