Title: Solution-spun hollow fiber polysulfone and polyethersulfone ultrafiltration membranes

Abstract

Polysulfone hollow fiber membranes are currently in extensive industrial use, either as such for ultrafiltration (UF) applications or as a base for subsequent coating operations for use as gas or vapor separation membranes. A laboratory apparatus for making hollow fiber membranes by the solution spinning process is described. Several hollow fiber membranes form polysulfone (Udel-3500) and polyethersulfone (Victrex) polymers have been made by using the above apparatus. The effects of spin-solution composition, length of air gap, and pressure used for fiber extrusion on fiber dimensions and ultrafiltration performance of the resulting membranes have been studied and are discussed.
