Exploring the Benefits of Crystar® Crossflow Filtration
Crystar® FT crossflow membranes were developed for the most demanding applications. Thanks to their well-engineered and well-controlled R-SiC microstructure, filtration processes of high value products can be achieved consistently. The carrier geometries were designed with the support of numerical modelling for an optimal combination of filtration fluxes, longitudinal pressure drop and mechanical resistance. To summarise, Crystar® FT crossflow membranes provide:
- Reliable separation processes thanks to the well-engineered and thoroughly controlled multi-layer silicon carbide membrane,
- Low energy consumption resulting from high permeate fluxes at low transmembrane pressures and low recirculation speed,
- Fast and effective CIP cycles enabled by the unmatched thermal shock resistance, thermal stability and corrosion resistance for harsh cleaning operations,
- High compactness thanks to the high filtration area developed in big size tubular carriers combined with high permeate fluxes,
- Efficient backwash operations thanks to high carrier permeability and low adsorption of negatively charged compounds (bacteria, proteins, oils,…).

Filtration Crystar Coconut
Coconut water clarification is a crucial part of the production process, due to the high turbidity and presence of microorganisms such as C. botulinum
Filtration Crystar Beer
Crystar® FT is designed for liquid and air purity, security, and sustainability.
Coconut Water Clarification
Coconut water clarification is a crucial part of the production process, due to the high turbidity and presence of microorganisms such as C. botulinum. Being able to reduce turbidity while removing micro-organisms plays an important role in the overall quality, safety and stability of the final product.
