Medarray Awarded Two New Patents
Release date: October 21, 2013
(Ann Arbor, MI)


Medarray, Inc., (Ann Arbor, MI) an innovative membrane manufacturer specializing in silicone hollow fiber membranes, received notification from the Unites States Patent and Trademark Office that two new patents will be awarded to Medarray, both pertaining to novel methods for forming bundles of hollow fibers. The company uses proprietary forming processes to create self-supporting silicone (PDMS) hollow fibers more efficiently than conventional silicone fiber spinning processes. These hollow fibers are then packaged in membrane modules to provide customers effective means for transferring gases and vapors in and out of various fluids.

“These two newly awarded patents, when added to our repertoire of well established and commercially proven intellectual property, add significantly more value to our product offerings to customers, including lower cost and improved performance…” remarked the company CEO, Patrick Montoya. “We believe that our current and pending patents will help position the company to become the leading provider of wide-ranging gas transfer solutions with accessible membrane technology.”

Silicone permeable membranes separate gases and vapors based on permeability differences—not on pore size—allowing them to perform challenging separations from mixed gases to gases dissolved in liquids. PermSelect® membrane modules are used for degassing liquids, gas separations, and pervaporation in applications such as air humidification and dehumidification, oxygen enrichment, nitrogen enrichment, methane purification, CO2 capture, VOC removal and recovery, membrane distillation of water, and pervaporation of alcohols.
