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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
