In membrane technology, pressurized industrial-use or waste water flows across specially developed technical membranes from ceramic or plastic, which function as filters. The membrane separates the solids from the liquids.
Industrial-use water is repeatedly pumped by a circulation pump into a membrane module and flows over the surface of an ultrafiltration membrane. A ceramic hollow fiber membrane, specially selected for the given filtration purpose, allows water to pass through, though it retains macromolecules and particles. Industrial-use water passes through the membrane under pressure perpendicular to the flow direction and, purified, it drains off into a filtrate container.
