The purpose of the study was to conduct a comparative analysis of domestic selective property polymer membranes used in gas separation problems and to estimate the prospects of using appropriate membrane technologies for air drying in launch complex thermostatic control systems. The study analyzes models of membrane dryers through the example of a temperature control system with the required outlet dew point minus 25 °C under normal conditions. The existing methods of membrane drying with the corresponding designs of membrane modules and the most promising models for use at launch complexes are described. The scientific novelty of the work lies in the development of schematic diagrams of thermostatic control systems using cartridges with hollow fiber membranes, structurally adapted to solve the tasks at the launch rocket complex.
