About our CeralumoxaneTM inorganic ceramic membrane

Membrane Characteristics:

CeralumoxaneTM is an organophobic ceramic membrane in a tubular multichannel configuration, with superb organophobic rejection due to its nanotechnology patented process.

Operating Limits:

Operating Pressure: Maximum operating pressure for CeralumoxaneTM membrane is 145 psi (10bar). Actual operating pressure is dependent upon system flux rate, as well as feed viscosity, CP and temperature conditions.

Temperature: Maximum operating temperature is 302°F(150°C). Temperature change should not exceed 10°C per minute.

pH: Allowable range for continuous operation is 2 -12.

Prefilter for membrane: Screen filter of 30 U.S. -MESH or 595 microns

Feed Flow Rate: To acquire a lowest fouling on membrane layer and prevent the channel blocked, a minimum cross flow recirculation velocity is necessary due to liquid of different viscosity:


Min – (m3/h)

Max – (m3/h)

MFI -19060-OD40



Actual feed flow rate is dependent feed characteristics (Viscosity, TS ,Temperature etc), fouling tendency, concentrate parameter and system design. For more details,  please consult with Molecular Filtration, Inc. for technical support.

Membrane Handling:

Recommended Cleaners for recovering membrane:

Due to our nanotechnology please consult Molecular Filtration, Inc. for more information on cleaning.

Preservation: Should be made with clean water.

Storage: The membrane module should not get dry. It should be stored in clean water in a firm vessel in case of bump.
