Ceramic Membrane Technology from Veolia
Veolia’s ceramic membrane range combines innovative modular designs and unique materials of construction to provide exceptional microfiltration performance.
This proprietary microfilter design uses large-diameter ceramic monolith membranes that reduce the overall footprint of installed equipment.
- Robust, large-diameter monoliths as membrane supports
- High chemical and abrasion resistance
- Very high packing density with large membrane area in a single membrane module (10.5 m2)
- Low fouling properties
- Suitable for elevated temperature operation & processing of non-aqueous media
- Reduces power consumption through reduced cross-flow velocity operation without adverse membrane fouling
Microfiltration in your water stream:
As with other membrane filtration processes, microfiltration entails the introduction of a feed stream into the MF membrane under pressure. The larger pore sizes of microfiltration membranes mean less pressure, and thus energy, is required to extract the permeate, and is thus is extremely cost effective in the relevant micron range.
In terms of molecular weight, membranes can separate macromolecules of molecular weights less than 100 000 g/mol. The filters used are specially designed to prevent particles like sediment, algae, protozoa and large bacteria from passing through.
When used for potable water treatment, the membranes are a key step in uptake water primary disinfection. When treating secondary wastewater effluents, MF is used to remove turbidity and provides treatment for disinfection.
