Membrane filtration plants can be designed using a variety of membrane configurations, each with unique characteristics to suit a wide range of process requirements.
This compact membrane format can be operated at high pressures, and with suitable spacer materials, can accept high-viscosity feeds. (left in photo)
Intended for high solids or large suspended solids, tubular membranes can have internal diameters (ID) ranging from ¼ to ½ inch (6.35 - 12.7 mm). They may be made from polymeric or ceramic materials. (center in photo)
Hollow fibers range from .019 to 0.118 inch (0.5 to 3 mm) ID and make it possible for a large surface area to be housed in a small volume. (far right in photo)
