Membrane Systems
Membrane Systems are used to separate, clarify, and concentrate various product feed streams in a wide variety of industries. They are generally classified into four major categories based upon the molecular size of the particles that are permitted to pass through the membrane. These classifications are reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration and microfiltration. Membranes are available in various materials and configurations to handle a wide variety of feed streams including organic polymer, ceramic and stainless steel membranes. FES engineers select the type of membrane and configuration to design a system that is optimized for each process feed stream. Some of the applications where membranes have been successfully utilized are listed below.
