Energy Efficient Crossflow Filtration

Mantec’s Star-Sep™ ceramic membrane filter has been specifically developed for efficient crossflow filtration. The filter channels’ unique ‘star’ form increases the filtration area and induces turbulence at lower crossflow velocities. Not only does this lower the volume compared with a circular channel of the same diameter, but also results in a reduction of the pumping energy requirement. The cost effectiveness of the process is therefore substantially improved.
