Alfa Laval is one of the world’s major suppliers of industrial separation technologies. We have a proud tradition of providing virtually all industries with separation equipment based on centrifugal and mechanical principles.
However, there are many processes in which the substances involved are too delicate to be able to withstand such treatment.
The gentle alternative
Membrane filtration separates out the different components in a feed stream on the basis of the size and shape of the micro-particles within it. And the better the filtration, the better the quality and value of your end product.
This separation takes place by pumping the feed stream across the surface of a membrane with pores so microscopic that they are
measured in angstroms (1 x 10-10 m). Some components pass through – others cannot.
