Enhancing Diffusion Capabilities to Maximize Consistency and Performance

11:00 am EST, Jan. 21, 2020

Diffusion is the process by which a liquid or a gas gets distributed into a broader environment, such as when a fragrance release product allows for a scent to be diffused into the air in a room.  It is also an important function in dissipating a waste product or even spreading a liquid or gas used in manufacturing.  Porous polymers have been used for decades in a variety of sparging and diffusion applications in industrial, consumer and bioscience markets to create a consistent, evenly distributed product release. 

Diffusion challenges solved by porous polymers are as varied as consistently releasing air freshener scent or insecticide into a room to delivering an even spread of oxygen or other gas into a bioprocessing system and even ensuring an even spread of light onto a surface.  Proper diffusion can alleviate issues related to flow and distribution of liquids and gases in many different environments.  In this webinar, engineers will discover the many applications of porous diffusion media and what criteria to specify when designing a product that requires diffusion as part of its functionality.
