Wet-spinning of hollow fiber membranes
Hollow fiber membranes offer the advantage of a large specific separation area. Spinnerets are available to manufacture fibers with outer diameters in the range of 0.5 to 4 mm and wall thicknesses from 50 to 500 μm. Our main focus lies in the processing of inorganic or metallic slurries and spinning of biodegradable or biocompatible polymers. Asymmetric structures can be obtained by controlling the phase inversion process.
