Technology

Overview

The membrane technologies of OSMO Membrane Systems GmbH are distinguished from each other by different driving forces and different separation mechanisms.

membranverfahren

Membrane technology Driving force Essential separation mechanism
Microfiltration pressure difference
(0.5-5 bars)
sieve effect
Ultrafiltration pressure difference
(0.5-10 bars)
sieve effect
Nanofiltration pressure difference
(5 - 60 bars)
Different solubility and diffusion
Reverse osmosis pressure difference
(10 - 160 bars)
Different solubility and diffusion
Electrodialysis electric potential Different solubility and diffusion because of different charges
Membrane electrolysis electric potential Different solubility and diffusion because of different charges
Diffusion dialysis concentration gradient Different solubility and diffusion
Membrane degasification
partial pressure gradient Different permeability for different molecules
