Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a method for manufacturing a hollow fiber membrane module, by which a stable potting part can be formed so that a potting resin does not clog the opening of the end face 2 of a hollow fiber membrane 3 but infiltrate into the space among the membranes 3 satisfactorily regardless of the density of the membrane 3 to be used while dispensing with a step to cut the fixed tip part of the membrane 3 after the potting part is formed. SOLUTION: This method for manufacturing the hollow fiber membrane module comprises two steps to form the potting part consisting of two parts 11 and 12, namely, a step to form a potting part 11 by a first injection and filling of the potting resin after the tip part of the membrane 3 having the opening on the end face 2 is inserted in a housing 1 and a step to form another potting part 12 by a second injection and filling of the potting resin.
