Overview


Xergy offers unique solutions for your in-line gas conditioning and humidity control needs. Our patented ionomeric membrane-based technology can be tailored to meet the performance needs of many custom OEM applications.

Chemically and thermally stable membranes can be custom fabricated into leak-proof tubes for membrane contactors.

XIPERM Pervaporative Membrane Tube

 

Applications for our systems include

  • Analytical Gas Conditioning
  • Particulate & Emissions Monitoring
  • CO2 monitoring
  • Evaporative Cooling
  • Capnography
  • Anesthesia monitoring
  • Fuel Cell Conditioning & Humidification

How it Works

XIPERM™ Gas Conditioning Tubes use highly selective ionic membranes that offer very high water permeation rates. To dehumidify a gas, the water vapor transfers across the ionic membrane so that it can be carried away. To humidify a gas stream, ambient air can provide water vapor to permeate into the tube and humidify the gas.

 

Features and Benefits

Highest Pressure Rating

The XIPERM™ Gas Conditioning Tubing burst pressure exceeds 250 psi, allowing them to be used in a wide variety of applications.

Thinner Membrane

The Xergy’s patented fabrication method allows for the manufacture of walls as thin as 0.001”, providing an improved water permeation rate per unit length.

Product Performance


The XIPERM Permeation Tube was compared to a leading competitor’s gas conditioning tube. The test carried out humidified a sealed, climate controlled box as a batch process, using the moisture from ambient air. The normalized results below show that the XIPERM tubes meet the competitor’s flux transfer rate at short times, when the pressure differential is large, and exceed the flux rate at lower pressure differentials.
