Apura Gas Separation Membrane

No chemical usage and 30% or more improvement in recovery of saleable hydrocarbons

The Apura gas separation membrane is exclusively marketed and distributed globally by Schlumberger. The durable, spiral-wound, multilayer composite membrane is ideally suited to seamlessly replace traditional cellulose acetate (CA) spiral-wound elements for acid gas removal to meet pipeline transmission specifications. 

Apura membranes are designed for use in high-pressure, medium- to low-CO2 applications for bulk and fine removal of contaminants such as water, CO2, H2S.
