Cross-flow membrane filtration is the technology of choice for many industrial processes that require the separation or concentration of products without the application of heat. There are applications throughout the food, dairy, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and starch and sweetener industries in which membrane filtration excels. Benefits compared with other methods of separation include: accurate separation of multiple streams; reduced risk of damage especially for heat-sensitive products; no loss of nutritional value or clinical efficacy; reduced energy consumption; reduced waste disposal costs; higher yields; and greater flexibility for new product development. GEA is a world leader for the custom design and building of these large filtration systems with reference sites worldwide.
