New technology is available from GEA Filtration which helps to improve cross-flow microfiltration separations that are sensitive to variations in trans-membrane pressure.
The Isoflux membrane, invented by French company Tami Industries, is said by GEA to represent the third generation of membrane design and offers solutions to fouling problems and to inefficiencies caused by gel layer formation. It controls the permeate flux with a variable-thickness active membrane layer of the element thus extending run times, maximising separation efficiency, and minimising capital and operating costs.
Already in use handling difficult separations of fluid dairy products, the new technology is also expected to provide benefits in other food and beverage separation processes.
