Cylindrical Membralox® Type EC0760/1935

Cylindrical Membralox®

Ceramic Membranes

Type EC0760 and EC1935

Cylindrical Membralox ceramic elements feature the same exceptional performance, mechanical and chemical resistance and service life as the well-recognized Membralox product range.

These membrane geometries are intended to be compatible with a wide range of filter suppliers housing designs.

Membralox membranes are the key components of crossflow systems used in numerous food and beverage applications, such as clarification / concentration / purification of fermentation broths,dextrose syrups, fruits juices, dairy products, etc.

Description

These Membralox ceramic elements are asymmetric multi-channel membranes composed of a porous alumina support supporting filtering layers casted on the inner surface of the lumens.

Pall Membralox membranes are made from high purity ceramic oxides in multiple geometries.

All along the manufacturing, a stringent quality control process verifies consistency of membrane characteristics versus precise acceptation criteria to deliver reproducible membrane performances, batch after batch, years after years.

Prior to release, Membralox membranes are 100% bubble point tested to confirm filtration layer and end sealing integrity.

 
Features Benefits
Highly asymmetric structure with 12 μm average support pore size High permeability for better permeate flux and performances
Support structure based on alpha- Alumina with exceptional purity Wide chemical and pH compatibility (0-14)
Very high support sintering temperature coupled with recrystallization process Exceptional mechanical resistance.
Excellent thermal stability
Proprietary alpha-Alumina endsealing Long term resistance to corrosion.
Permanent protection against product leakage
Sharp pore size distribution Optimum filtration performance and selectivity
Final 100% bubble point testing Filtration layer integrity
Stringent quality control process and procedures with full traceability Reproducibility, Reliability, Durability.
Extremely low failure rate in operation
