3M Separation and Purification Sciences Division - Liqui-Cel® Contactors for carbon dioxide removal

For years, many industries have used Liqui-Cel® Contactors for carbon dioxide removal from water. Systems utilizing RO and EDI or CDI technologies need to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the water. High inlet conductivity levels into an EDI or CDI device will reduce the resistivity of the outlet water.

A common cause of the high conductivity is dissolved carbon dioxide.... (read more)

3M Separation and Purification Sciences Division - Removing Dissolved Gases without using Chemicals

It is commonly known that dissolved gases such as CO2 and O2 can oxidize and destroy metal piping and system components. Corrosion control and prevention is essential to avoid the large cost associated with replacing boiler tubes, old pipes and corroded equipment. The life time of metal components can be extended and plant downtime can be minimized by adding a small compact membrane dega... (read more)
