The present invention provides a gas/liquid contactor module having hollow fiber membranes and a process for controlling dissolved gases in liquids such as water, beer and the like, by passing the liquid through the shell side of the contactor module to allow addition or removal of dissolved gases by the diffusion of the gases through the membranes into or from the hollow fiber bores. The process permits control of the quantity of such dissolved gases as carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
A gas/liquid contactor module suitable for controlling the quantity of dissolved gas in a liquid, which comprises a module containing a plurality of hollow fiber membranes having a shell side comprised of the space surrounding the exterior of the fibers and filling the interior of the module containing liquid and a bore side comprised of the space in the bores of the hollow fibers containing gas, the hollow fiber membranes having an average pore size less than 500 Angstroms and a surface having less than 0.1% holes, the membranes being non-floodable and ...
