Ceramic Membrane

Product ID: 128aa1


Ceramic membrane elements are made up of a macroporous (>50 nm) inorganic material (with a tubular, multichannel, or monolithic geometry) supporting a multilayer porous ceramic structure exhibiting a non-deformable porosity with pore sizes ranging from macropores (>50 nm) to micropores (< 2 nm).

Ceramic membranes offer significant advantages over polymeric or metallic membranes in many applications with extreme operating conditions because of their intrinsic properties i.e., rigid porous structure, high-temperature resistance, high-chemical resistance to aggressive aqueous and organic media, insensitiveness to biological attack.

These applications can be: the treatment of waste liquids and gases; liquid processing including drinking water, domestic water, and food beverages; and product recovery in various industries range from micrometer-sized species (mineral particles, microorganisms, macromolecules, etc.), nanometer-sized species (viruses, colloids, molecules, ions), to filtration pretreatment before other separation techniques including polymer membranes.


According to the conditions of application, ceramic membrane elements come up with tailored parameters to meet specific requirements, such as: membrane material; membrane area; membrane pore size; element dimension; channel shape; the materials of module and sealing.

The available parameters of a ceramic membrane element, module and sealing are listed in the following Table.

Typically, ceramic membrane can work under temperature up to 300 0C (572 0F), pressure up to 2.6 MPa and PH range from 1 to 14.
