For those situations, where a commercially available membrane does not meet the process requirements, Somicon has its own recipies and methods to come up with a proper solution. This is due to the fact that we have been invloved in the membrane manufacturing process from Ciba-Geigy times. We can look into the problem and chances are that we may propose to you a possible solution.
Somicon does this kind of activity for some of the leading companies in the chemical and food-processing sector. Once the required membrane is made, it is thoroughly tested before its installation at the production site. This service is only offered under a secrecy agreement between your company and Somicon. Please use the “contact us” form in the contact menu to elaborate your problem and directly ask us for a secrecy agreement. Tailor-made membranes are only possible after the signing of a strict confidentiality agreement.
A detailed questionnaire on membrane separation processes is also available at Somicon for its customers. Somicon also welcomes membrane manufacturers to share their know-how with us under a strict confidentiality agreement.
When you are thinking about tailor-made, you may have issues such as presence of solvents, extreme pH situations, strong oxidising agents, peculiar production needs or other considerations that are not addressed by standard systems.
