Orelis’ Pleiade® MP4 filtration module is star performer

22.08.2005



Orelis of France is launching a new individual filtration module, the Pleiade® MP4, for the ultrafiltration of electrophoretic paint. The competitively priced module is available in two versions - MP450 and MP470 - and is easy to use and clean (both plates and frame), while offering the compactness of spiral modules.

Based on the tried and tested Pleiade® technology, the filtering surface of the Pleiade® MP4 is a stack of separate membranes. A unique feature is that users can see the quality of permeate from each membrane through a window and isolate individual membranes by means of a small valve. This means that there is never any production stoppage. The MP4 module is designed as an alternative and replacement to spiral systems and retains the modular concept offering flexibility and ease of maintenance. The module can be put immediately into service as new or replacement equipment.

The MP4’s major components are manufactured from plastics and composites. The MP4 is strong and extremely resistant to any type of corrosion and its design makes it interchangeable and modular. The price is competitive and provides a rapid return on investment. It is light and compact (weighing less than 100kg), and is very easy to handle. The membranes are supported on flat plates with an open paint channel, which offers more stable performance and more effective membrane cleaning. The surfaces are fast and easy to clean with the permeate. This ’green’ module does not emit polluting effluent.



Orelis filtration modules have many applications in the field of surface treatment. In the automotive and mechanical engineering sectors, systems produce the ultrafiltrate needed for rinsing after cataphoretic painting, and recycle demineralised water. They also separate water from oil or recycle degreasing baths. To date, Orelis has supplied all the major automotive manufacturers and more than 100 of its modules are in operation across the world.

Orelis also offers different types of membranes suitable for new types of paint. These new membranes can be used to enhance the filtrate or concentrate in widely diverse applications. Orelis’ expertise covers a wide range of membranes, and includes advice for use and implementation. Orelis also offers a complete range of services, from audits to operator training.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
