Dynamic Crossflow Filtration

Crossflow filters are state-of-the-art for substances with poor filtration characteristics


The use of ceramic filter membranes is gaining popularity in successful implementation when other separation processes, besides cake-forming filtration, do not achieve the desired results.


Thanks to its small dimensions, the DCF skid not only provides very efficient separation technology but is also a very compact and space-saving unit, benefiting from its vertical layout.

You'll benefit from:

Higher Yield due to higher retentate concentration

Optimum product quality -  due to single-pass filtration concept, short residence times, no contact with gases, and minimum thermal and mechanical impact

Reduced energy consumption - Up to 80% reduction in energy consumption compared to traditional membranes



Fields of Application:

  • Wine

  • Beer

  • Juices

  • Vegetable oils
