CoorsTek Launches Ceramic Membrane Technologies for Sustainable and Efficient Filtration at Achema 2018

Pharmaceutical Technology Editors

CoorsTek will highlight two new ceramic membrane filter technologies at the show-the multi-tube system, which consists of four single ceramic tubes connected together into a single ceramic part, and the hollow fiber system, which consists of ceramic tubes assembled into a high-density module.

Ceramics manufacturer, CoorsTek, is presenting two new industrial ceramics membrane filter technologies at ACHEMA 2018 on June 11–15, 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany. CoorsTek has designed new membrane filter technologies specifically for the micro- and ultrafiltration of molecules and particles from aqueous solutions.

"Our latest membrane filter developments will help our customers filter fluids or gases with a technology requiring less maintenance, while offering higher reliability and longer service time," said Andreas Schneider, executive vice president and managing director, Europe, in a press release. "Ceramic membranes are increasingly used to improve filtration performance, throughput, and operational cost in a broad range of industries such as biotechnology and pharmaceutical, dairy, food and beverage, as well as automotive, chemical, and petrochemical industries.”

The multi-tube system consists of four single ceramic tubes connected together into a single ceramic part. Every tube performs the same way to ensuremore efficient filtering of liquids. The cleaning of the filter and the quality control of the tubesareeasier, according to CoorsTek. This technology is especially suitable for high quality filtering needed in specific applications such as pharmaceutical products. 

The hollow fiber system consists of ceramic tubes assembled into a high-density module. The compact tube module size reduces the footprint of the filtering unit. Ceramic tubes offer superior temperature and chemical resistance compared to polymer tubes. They deliver longer useful service life through harsh production or cleaning conditions, noted CoorsTek.

CoorsTek specializes in the design and production of ceramic membranes. The company has developed several porous ceramic tubular systems for different industries. The CoorsTek technology team in Uden, Netherlands, collaborates with customers in Europe and worldwide to engineer application-specific solutions that take into account geometry, pore size, and production parameters such as flux, temperature, and cleaning processes
