Using tubular membrane

Microfiltration

Tubular membrane microfiltration is an ultra-powerful technology that eliminates all micro-organisms present in water.

Microfiltration is a process for physically treating water (or other fluids) using a semi-permeable membrane with a defined porosity that varies depending on the application, but generally falls between 0.1 and 10 µm. When water is passed through the membrane while under pressure, any suspended particles larger than the size of these pores are trapped. The filtered water is therefore free from:

• suspended material: colloids, mineral particles, organic residue, etc.

• micro-organisms: bacteria, mycobacteria, cyanobacteria, mycoplasma, protozoa, algae, fungi, bacterial or fungal spores, etc.

Filtration is called sterilizing-grade filtration when the diameter of the pores is less than 0.22 µm.

Second generation technology

Second generation tubular membrane There are many membrane technologies in the water filtration field. Second generation tubular membranes, which are composed of multiple parallel porous tubes, provide a greater surface exchange area and therefore an increased flow rate. The tubes differ in composition (plastic, composite, mineral or organic), porosity and diameter.
