Tubular Ceramic Membranes

Tubular Ceramic Membranes

Logo atech

SpinTek filtration has partnered with atech innovations to provide both single- and multi-channel ceramic membranes. These membranes are suitable for ultra filtration from 5 kD to microfiltration up to 1.2 µm. These ceramic membranes are capable of performing under extreme conditions – with an excellent chemical, thermal and mechanical strength that is matched by almost no other material. We also supply the pressure vessels that hold the filtration membranes and provide many more additional services. These services include testing of filterability of liquids, on site tests, pilot installations and many more.
