What is membrane filtration?

Membrane filtration is a separation process where pores on a continuous structure are used. It is classified by the size of target components and the driving force used for filtration into microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), ion exchange, reverse osmosis membranes, etc.
Membranes and targets of separation
The diagram below illustrates the target components separated by each class of membrane, membranes, and the scope of Microza’s membrane separation technology. 1 μm is 1/1000 mm, and 1 nm means 1/1 million mm.
