Abstract

Cytiva's hollow fiber cartridges are used for filtration of macromolecules. The hollow fiber membranes production process, however, consists of a mixing step that needs to be optimized to obtain a homogenous solution thus improving the repeatability of the process. During this project, laboratory experiments and mathematical modeling were used to correlate input parameters to mixture homogeneity indicating that mixing speed and viscosity to have the greatest effects on homogeneity.
