Ceramic membrane



Ceramic membranes are made from inorganic metarials (such as alumina, titania, zirconia oxides or some glassy materials) and they are used in membrane operations. By contrast with polymeric membranes they can used in separations where aggressive media (acids, strong solvents) are present. They also have excellent thermal stability which make them usable in high temperature membrane operations.

Additional recommended knowledge

Like polymeric membranes they are either dense or porous.
