Metalmembranes has developed a new type of self-cleaning membranes that can be cleaned by light. The unique feature of these membranes is that the top-layer of these filters consists of a photocatalytic TiO2 layer that causes a self-cleaning effect upon illumination.
The advantages are:
Our titanium membranes are characterized by:
The membranes are ideal for point-of-use applications where maintenance or cleaning of membranes is an issue. Due to the photocatalytic action of the membrane bacteria, viruses and even organic micro pollutants are removed.
