Membrane Technology

Membrane technology involves a large number of disciplines and skills, from understanding the molecular behaviour of feed material, its interaction with organic or in organic based membranes, to understanding how engineering components will fit together to form a complete design with the required automation to enable reproducible high performance processing.

If good science is about creativity in analysis, good engineering involves making creative trade-offs.

Microfiltration

Microfiltration (MF) generally refers to the application of membranes with pore size range between 0.05 – 2 µm and allows for the fractionation and clarification of larger compounds. Read more...

Ultrafiltration

Ultrafiltration (UF) membranes are commonly defined as membranes with pore size ranging from 1,000 – 500,000 Da and are used to separate liquids and microsolutes from macromolecules and colloids. Read more...

Nanofiltration

Nanofiltration (NF) generally refers to the application of membranes with pore size range between 150– 2000 Da and allows for the fractionation and clarification of smaller compounds. Read more...

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis (RO) is the application of the tightest membranes on the market and their pore size is defined in terms of salt (NaCl) rejection. Read more...
