Inkjet printing, ink filling, and applying coatings are just some of the applications where degassing or debubbling may help lessen yield loss and other production process interruptions.
Bubbles and dissolved gas in these types of applications may lead to surface defects and could halt or slow production. 3M membrane contactors offers a simple, in-line solution by helping to keep printers and production lines running at optimal quality and speeds.
Inkjet printers require the inks to be degassed to help prevent nozzle misfires and poor drop formation that could lead to printer downtime, maintenance and poor print quality. In ink production, 3M membrane degassers are installed in filling steps to help prevent foaming. The paper industry has also made use of membrane contactors to debubble coatings used on high-quality papers to help alleviate defects.
Microbubbles can negatively impact processes and quality in many other applications such as those using compatible monomers, photoresists, developers, photo emulsions and plating solutions.
3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors help keep processes using compatible low surface tension fluids or solutions containing organics, surfactants, and certain solvents running smoothly.
