Characteristics and requirements of FRP membrane housing
Characteristics of FRP membrane housing made it special, and even small scale to large scale industries prefer FRP membrane housing for liquid treatment only because of its characteristics and performance.
In this article, We will explain about the characteristics, performance and requirements of FRP membrane housing.
Characteristics of FRP membrane housings:
The following are the characteristics of FRP membrane housings:
Excellent and reliable internal quality:
The FRP membrane housing is manufactured by a controlled CNC Filament winding unit with the best performance processing equipment. The primary materials are epoxy resin and fibreglass. This unique process is used to prepare the FRP membrane housing for temperature, pressure, and corrosion resistance. Its advantages are compared to any ordinary steel, plastic, and other materials that can’t match.
Good insulation performance:
The thermal conductivity of every FRP membrane housing is usually 0.15 – 1.36 W (m.k), only about 1/200 at room temperature, these thermal insulation properties are unmatched by all metal materials. This property greatly benefits the reverse osmosis membrane in the membrane housing and affects the membrane’s external temperature.
Best corrosion resistance:
The combination of both glass fiber and epoxy resin primarily acts as a natural anti-corrosion product. The inner surface is also very smooth, and the coating has the best stability to solvents like acid, alkali, salt, and oil with low concentrations. The seawater, microorganisms, etc. Which are entering the FRP Membrane housing are very effectively smothered so that there is no corrosion for Life term usage.
The design of the barrel, head, and groove of the FRP membrane housing is separated, and the calculation details are constantly optimized to make sure the structure’s safety. The concentrated water side opening is constantly optimized to meet all the necessary safety pressure for opening, especially the head’s four side ports, and improves variability during installation.
The endplate is an important accessory of FRP membrane housings and has the best strength, best pressure resistance power, and high-pressure impact resistance. The seal is professionally designed as a “V+X” ring with an O-shaped endplate seal to ensure that it never leaks under any low or high-Pressure ranges. The side opening seal design combined with L-shaped drum round pads ensure the best sealing effect of the side opening mouth under that angular offset. The side opening is secured with a lifting-up affixing to make it more flexible.
The FRP membrane housing can mainly be used continuously for filter purposes for a long time, but to make sure long-term and best use of the FRP membrane housing strictly comply only with the temperature in between (-7c to 49c) that the product can withstand. Therefore, it is not safe to exceed this (-7c to 49c) temperature range and work under these conditions. Also, read the instructions pressure range for your FRP Membrane Housing.
Performance of premium FRP membrane housing:
The following are some of the performances of premium FRP membrane housing:
The internal structure performance is perfect, safe, trusted, and designed with good quality materials.
The matching components provide excellent sealing pressure performance.
Stoving varnish for external surface treatment always makes FRP membrane housing as best as new in hot and humid environments.
The universal property of pressure vessels is matched with multiple standard membrane elements, E.g., Filmtec, Koch, Hydranautics, Toray, Vontron, Kora, Osmonics, CSM, LG and BDX, etc.
Requirements for the usage of FRP membrane housing:
The following are the requirements for the usage of
FRP membrane housing:
- Comply with the best-rated design pressure index, ensure to use only allowable value; overpressure operations are strictly banned.
- The average working temperature of FRP membrane housing is usually between -7°C to 49°C. It is strictly banned to work beyond those temperature ranges.
- The FRP membrane pressure vessels can withstand at any pH range.
- The backpressure need not exceed up to 125PSI.
- Conventional fluid media is clear water, sewage, seawater; if used for special fluids, don’t hesitate to contact us (ALFA AEROSOL) in advance to avoid accidents.
- When the system is working, or there is pressure in the membrane pressure vessels, it is strictly banned to knock, disassemble or move that membrane shell and control the influence of surrounding vibration sources.
