Nitrogen Separation Membrane data sheet

Nitrogen Separation Membranes (UBE N2 Separator)

These modules use a polyimide hollow fiber membrane that provides higher permeability to oxygen than nitrogen to easily obtain a 97.0-99.9% pure nitrogen gas from compressed air, at roughly the same pressure as the supplied air.

Characteristic of Membrane
UBE's membranes characterize properties in various ways, heat resistance, chemicals tolerance, high selective permeability in gas separation, etc. Permeation rates for various gas components of each membrane type are shown in the example permeability data.

What our systems - UBE Gas Separation SYSTEM - boil down to is that UBE GAS SEPARATORs are linked with pipes and are skid-mounted for easy installation to separate permeable gases like H2, He and C02 from gas streams. The driving force of the gas separation is the partial pressure difference of each component across the membrane. Accordingly, the pressure of the permeate gas is lower than that of the feed gas. However, the non-permeate pressure is essentially equal to the feed gas pressure.


Dehydration System


  • By using UBE's polyimide membrane, it
    is possible to supply the feed vapor with the temperature of 120°C (248°C)
    and the pressure of 2 barg (28 psig) for example. The partial pressure of
    water vapor at the feed side is so high that no extremely high vacuum at the
    permeate side is required to secure the necessary driving force for dehydration.
  • No serious fouling problem occurs on
    the membrane surface because the feed is a clean vapor; not a liquid with
    contaminants. It brings an advantage of higher durability regarding the membrane
  • Simple and compact unit, easy startup
    and shutdown operation and easy maintenance can improve the overall process

Membrane Separation Process
Membrane Separation performs on the principle of selective gas permeation. When gas mixture is introduced to the membrane, gas component dissolves into membrane material and diffuses through the membrane material. Solubility and diffusivity are different from gas component. Carbon dioxide, water vapor and hydrogen sulfide are easy permeable gas components, while methane, ethane and other hydrocarbons are very slow to permeate. This is why water and sour gas components in the natural gas are removed with the membrane. The driving force of gas separation is partial pressure difference of specific gas component between both sides of membrane.
