Membrane Filtration Pilot Plant G

Model G Membrane Filtration Pilot Plant

The GEA Filtration Model G membrane filtration pilot plant is a pilot-scale plant designed specifically for application development utilizing specialized tubular microfiltration membranes cast on a microporous, sintered stainless steel support structure.

The tubular format, sintered stainless steel membrane is ideally suited to difficult process streams characterized by high viscosity and/or high suspended solids load. The active membrane layer is titanium dioxide (TiO2) making it virtually unaffected by extremes in temperature, pressure or pH. The robust, seal-less and gasket-less module design makes it well suited for organic solvent applications and also allows for aggressive clean-in-place (CIP) with inexpensive, bulk chemicals.

In its base configuration, the Model G is configured with a single recirculation stage but an optional two stage design is also available providing for double the operating capacity. The plant can be operated in semi-batch or continuous feed-and-bleed mode.

All vital process parameters are easily manipulated for effective and efficient process development and optimization.
