Orelis’ Pleiade® MP4 filtration module is star performer
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.
Headquartered in south-east France, Orelis is dedicated to the design and manufacture of membranes assembled in the form of modules for microfiltration, ultrafiltration and nanofiltration. It is now part of Novasep Process, a Novasep Group subsidiary. Orelis has 40 years of experience in the automotive industry and mechanical engineering, and holds more than 50% of market share.

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...

Germany counts high-precision manufacturing processes among its advantages as a location. It’s not just the aerospace and automotive industries that require almost waste-free, high-precision manufacturing to provide an efficient way of testing the shape and orientation tolerances of products. Since current inline measurement technology not yet provides the required accuracy, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is collaborating with four renowned industry partners in the INSPIRE project to develop inline sensors with a new accuracy class. Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the project is scheduled to run until the end of 2019.
