SSI R & D has achieved a technological breakthrough in our ultra fine bubble membrane development program. We have managed to produce multiple samples of an EPDM membrane diffuser which makes 0.5 to 0.8mm diameter bubbles across its entire surface at airflow rates from 0-5 SCFM at a modest headloss.
We are tooling up for production of the ultra fine bubble diffuser in the form of a disc diffuser and a tube diffuser and will showcase this item at WEFTEC in October.
