The ceramic membrane of TAMI Industries are used for the cross flow filtration of liquids (different from of the frontal or dead end filtration).
The flow direction is perpendicular to the filter surface, the retained particles are rapidly coagulated on the filter surface, forming what is called a cake. The pores of the filter are clogged by the the cake, the filtration performance is considerably reduced in a very short period time.
Cross flow filtration
This system chosen by TAMI Industries, consists in creating a turbulent flow on the membrane surface. Thus, it prevents the filtered material making a cake on the filter surface, and allows the flow remain constant.
