  • The pharmaceutical industry requires high water quality without contamination. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors offer an ideal solution for reliable and efficient control with low extractables.*

    Unlike conventional forced draft deaerators or chemical alternatives 3M Liqui-Cel are closed systems and so help reduce the risk of introducing environmental contaminants, without needing chemicals to operate.

    Additionally, EDI and CDI technology have become commonplace for ion exchange in the pharmaceutical industry. These technologies operate more efficiently if the dissolved CO₂ is first removed from the water. High CO₂ levels in the water could reduce the efficiency of the EDI units requiring the installation of more EDI stacks than are necessary. Our membrane contactors provide effective CO₂ removal in pharma water to alleviate this.

    3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors for dissolved gas control are compact and reliable devices that are able to reduce CO₂ levels down to <1 ppm. For more than a decade, these gas transfer membranes have been used in pharmaceutical process water applications to keep dissolved gases in process water under control.

    *Our membrane contactors for pharma may be used to create the purified water that is processed by either distillation or some other equivalent process to create WFI. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors shouldn’t be used during the production of the WFI after the distillation or other equivalent process.
