Membrane Filtration Systems

Membrane filtration is a separation process which separates a liquid into two streams by means of a semi-permeable membrane. The two streams are referred to as retentate and permeate. By using membranes with different pore sizes, it is possible to separate specific components of milk and whey. Depending on the application in question, the specified components are either concentrated or removed/reduced. Membrane filtration can basically be divided into 4 main technologies
