Supported by 100 years of innovation,first-class engineering and extensive process-technological know-how, the company pro-duces centrifugal separators and decanters.</p><p>They are used for clarifying suspensions, separatingliquid mixtures with simultaneous removal of thesolids, but also for extracting active substances andfor concentrating and dewatering solid material. Inall, Westfalia Separator gathered experience with more than 2500 different applications. This enables the company to provide perfectly </p><p>customized solutions in terms of machine and process technology. Westfalia Separator recentlyextended its product portfolio by another future-oriented high-end technology: filtration with ceramic membranes.</p><p>As a specialist in dynamic filtration, Westfalia Separator Membraflow offers equipment tailoredprecisely to individual customer requirements. Westfalia Separator Membraflow develops, manufactures and installs ceramic membranes andcomplete membrane filtration systems. Thanks tomembrane filtration with ceramic elements, a solution is now available from a single source for many application areas requiring the parallelemployment of separators, decanters and membranefiltration.</p><p>Benefits to the user: intelligent technologies usingcentrifugation and membrane filtration, matched toeach other, provide a significant improvement inprocess line efficiency for example, in the foodindustry, biotechnology, the chemical industry or inwater and waste water treatment.</p><p>Since 1988, the company installed more than 1000 systems in a variety of sizes and for various applications, operating worldwide anddemonstrating the outstanding competence ofWestfalia Separator Membraflow.</p><p>High-tech manufacturing facility: the Westfalia Separator</p><p>Membraflow manufacturing facility brings together development,</p><p>production and logistics under one roof.</p><p>Individual solution Manufacturing Test stand operation Customer installation</p><p>Analysis ofthe problem</p></li><li><p>Westfalia Separator </p><p>now offers complete </p><p>product clarification within </p><p>the process chain.</p><p>... centrifugation</p><p>with decanters and </p><p>separators and ...</p><p>Optimisation of </p><p>efficiency by </p><p>matching the </p><p>technologies...</p><p>... dynamic filtration with</p><p>ceramic membranes.</p></li><li><p>Westfalia Separator</p><p>Membraflow4</p><p>Filter Systems for Extreme Chemicaland Physical ConditionsTechnology and function of the ceramic membrane elements</p><p>The schematic drawing combined with an REM image show a cross-section through the support and membrane. </p><p>The multi-layer construction is clearly visible. The size of the particles determines the size of the spaces, the pores.</p><p>Where other filtration systems meet their limits,dynamic filtration with ceramic membrane elements opens new horizons.</p><p>The demands for maximum mechanical and chemicalstability, coupled with the lowest possible flow resistance are met by using a support made of pure-Al2O3 with a macroporous structure.</p><p>The membrane is applied to this support materialand consists of at least one, but usually several, layers of highly porous ceramic, with a precisely defined texture. The layer with the finest porositydetermines the filtration characteristics.</p><p>Westfalia Separator Membraflow offers a wideapplication-specific spectrum of membranes and element geometries, unmatched by the competition.Membranes with nominal pore diameters from 1 to 1400 nanometers are available.</p><p>Ceramic membranes are therefore almost predestinedfor use in the areas of ultra and microfiltration.</p><p>The outstanding properties offered by these typesof membrane elements are being successfully usedthroughout the world in Westfalia Separator Membraflow filter systems.</p></li><li><p>The Basis: the Ceramic Multi-Channel Element</p><p>The body made of highly porous ceramic contains numerous round channels runningparallel to its longitudinal axis. The membraneis mounted on the surface of these channels.</p><p>The suspension being clarified flows along the membrane in the channels with a portion of theflow passing through the membrane as the filtrate:this is then carried off by the support material.Thanks to the extremely high permeability, pressureloss during passage through the support is so low as to be negligible when compared to the pressure loss resulting from the passage through the extremely thin membrane.</p><p>A powerful filter element</p><p>Inert materialAcid and base resistantSolvent resistantCan be regeneratedNo problems with backflushingWear resistantLong service lifeOperationally safeHeat resistant can be sterilised with steam</p><p>Westfalia Separator</p><p>Membraflow 5</p><p>Pore diameters of the ceramic membranes</p><p>Pore diameter Pore diameter Molecular weight</p><p>m nm kD</p><p>1.4 1400 </p><p>1.0 1000 </p><p>0.8 800 </p><p>0.5 500 </p><p>0.2 200 400</p><p>0.1 100 200</p><p>0.05 50 100</p><p>0.02 20 50</p><p>0.005 5 10</p><p>Round channels: Westfalia Separator Membraflow utilises a</p><p>channel form which provides optimum flow characteristics.</p></li><li><p>Westfalia Separator</p><p>Membraflow 7</p><p>Matching the ceramic elements, modules and systems to </p><p>the individual requirements of the filtration task</p><p>High-performance materials manufactured in-house</p><p>Production of the filter elements, the modules, andthe individual membrane layers all takes place in-house. It is based on decades of know-how in thedevelopment and manufacture of high-performanceceramic materials made of aluminium oxide, zirconium oxide, titanium oxide and non-oxidizing,mechanically resistant materials.</p><p>Multi-channel filtration elements</p><p>During dynamic filtration, membrane elements areoperated with process-optimised flows across themembrane surface. A portion of this flow passesthrough the membrane and is carried off as the filtrate.</p><p>The optimal conditions for flow are achieved in acircular tube which is standard in all ceramic membrane filter elements. In practice, a number ofthese tubes are embedded in the coarsely poroussupport ceramic. This creates a multi-channel filterelement. The diameters of the channels are matchedto the requirements of the filtration process and liein the range of between 2 and 8 mm.</p><p>Application-specific module housings</p><p>Module housings serve to hold one or more membrane filter elements. The membrane is onlytechnically usable once it has been installed in sucha housing. The modules primary functions include:</p><p>Holding the working pressureEnsuring flow channelling of the raw solution, the permeate and the retentateChannelling the filtrateAllowing a controlled flow across the membrane</p><p>Geometry selection is always application-specific,based on the requirements.
