Overview
Process Membrane separation systems find extensive use in the process industrial applications. The  range covers supply of  customized membrane plants (RO, NF, UF, MF, MBR) for various applications in process industries.

Process membrane System

Applications

  • API/ Chemical nano-filtration for de-salting applications
  • De-ashing of products using membrane technology with hybrid processes  like Ion Exchange
  • Caustic / Brine recovery system from Industry effluents
  • API product recovery or molecule recovery from process or  from waste streams
  • Sugar syrup clarification (i.e. Dextrose solutions, starch hydrolysates)
  • Precious metal homogenous Catalyst recovery from solvents
  • Dye effluent treatment (removing colour/dye from water)
  • Dye Recovery in dyeing houses
  • Polypeptides, protein/Amino Acid recovery and concentration
  • Enzyme concentration, diafiltration
  • Degreasing of rinsers and baths (i.e. steel industry, automotive industry)
  • Acid / Pickling / Electroplating (i.e. recovering precious metals and removing precipitated heavy metals)
  • Fermenter broth treatment (separating biomass from dissolved product; i.e. Vitamins, Lysin)
  • Guar Gum treatment (extraction of dietary fibre from guar gum solution)
  • Wine + Fruit Juice clarification
  • Treatment of emulsions and suspensions
  • Purifying and concentration of  vitamins
  • Nano-filtration of Peptides and polypeptides

Feature and Advantages

  • High temperature resistance (0-130 ºC) with varied range of membranes starting from Polymers to Ceramic to SS membranes
  • Broad pH range (0-14)
  • Resistance to aggressive solvents, oxidants and most chemicals
  • Steam Sterilization (autoclave, oxidant, etc.)
  • Reproducible cleaning and easy to maintain
  • Repeatability in fluxes
  • Excellent mechanical resistance (High Solid loading)

Process Operation
The  fit-to-purpose engineered membrane  solutions are being built as per customer needs and application requirements.  The design is based on the extensive client meetings and process understanding. The initiation of  projects takes place conducting comprehensive lab and pilot plant work in order to size, design and cost an industrial plant.
Process membrane systems  operate using  membrane elements of different MOC  that are configured  in typical crossflow mode. That technology purely relies on the differences in physical sizes in the MF range and in the molecular weight (size) of the individual components when processing in the MF/NF and RO range.  The membrane pore is a safe barrier for any insoluble matter (i.e. protein complexes if any,  triglycerides, fats, oils, bacteria, colloidal matter, fibres etc) irrespective of the incoming concentrations. The selection of the right membrane is more from experience of working in similar applications.
