Membrane technology used for selective removal of suspended matter, particles, large macromolecules, colloidal matter and microorganisms, but which does not remove ions or dissolved material. The diameter of the membrane hole is between 0.1 and 0.001 µm.


It has several advantages over conventional filtration: lower chemical consumption, more efficient removal of contaminants, better and greater continuity in the quality of the filtrate, more compact plants and simpler automation.
