Initially, atech ceramic membranes were used in waste water technology. Meanwhile, successful solutions and possible applications are furnished to all industries where liquids are filtered. The benefits of atech membranes are particularly useful in the food, environmental and chemical industries.
In the field of waste water treatment atech membranes are used, for example, for the filtration of cleaning chemicals (surface treatment), for cell separation after biological processes, or for the recycling of paints and lacquers. In chemical and biotechnological applications, ceramic membranes ensure protein concentration, cell separation, recovery of catalysts, filtration of dyestuffs, and more. In the food and beverages industry, ceramic membranes made by atech filter or clarify beverage such as beer, wine and fruit juices.
In the environmental / waste water industries, the substances listed below are, among others, filtered for cleaning, concentration or separation purposes:
- Cleaning solvents,
- Cooling lubricants / drilling emulsions,
- Cell separation after heavy-duty biological processes,
- Pickling baths, etc.
Solutions for biotechnology and for the chemical industry include filtration, cleaning, separation or recovery of:
- Bacteria, yeasts, ... (fermenter solutions)
- Catalyst liquids.
In the food industry, ceramic membranes made by atech are used for the filtration of:
- Tank Bottom beer,
- Sugar syrup, fruit juice, wine and vinegar,
- Protein Fractionation
