Alfa Laval offers different membrane filtration equipment for a variety of applications. According to the vendor, membrane filtration systems are often less expensive than many alternative technologies. For example, the Alfa Laval PP spiral membranes are more compact, resulting in a larger filtration area that provides better performance and the ability to produce a wider product range. These membranes offer sustainable benefits like reduction of water and chemical use as well as longer service life, meaning less maintenance and less downtime.

Membrane filtration is a clean technology, according to the vendor. The separation process is carried out solely on the basis of molecular size, making the use of additives unnecessary. This results in an end product of top quality and makes it easier to comply with the stringent requirements from both consumers and public authorities. The Alfa Laval PP spiral membranes withstand high numbers of Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) cycles, hot cleaning temperatures, and high pH levels.

Membrane filtration can be used for products with a wide range of different viscosities, including high-viscosity products that can be difficult to process. Alfa Laval membrane filtration equipment is designed on a modular basis that gives a high degree of flexibility. The design of a system can be customized to meet any process needs, and it is easy to expand if production requirements increase.

The efficiency of membrane filtration systems depends heavily on the reliable, uninterrupted application of consistent pressure. Hygienic, high-pressure pumps make the feed stream flow across the surface of the membrane and through its microscopic pores at a consistent rate, boosting both reliability and efficiency.
