Membrane Distillation Systems


What is Membrane Distillation?

Membrane distillation (MD) is a type of membrane process whose driving force is temperature. In membrane distillation, hot and cold water flows are separated from each other with the help of microporous hydrophobic membranes.

How MD Membrane Works?

The hydrophobic membrane prevents the flow of liquid water from passing through the pores, while allowing water vapor to pass through. With the temperature difference, the vapor pressure difference occurs by allowing the water vapor to pass over the membrane and condense on the cold surface. As a result, non-volatile components are not allowed to pass through the membrane, thus providing a very high purity distillate (product) unlike conventional distillation.


What are the Advantages of the MD System?

Some of the most important advantages of advanced osmosis technology, which is one of the new generation technologies in water or wastewater treatment;

✓ Low temperature and operating pressure,
✓ Availability of solar, wave or geothermal energy,
✓ Availability of low temperature gradients available in industrial plants,
✓ Chemical recovery,
✓ Fully efficient concentrate management,

What are the wastewaters that can be used in MD Systems?

✓ Color, conductivity, turbidity removal,
✓ Rubber industry wastewater,
✓ Boron removal,
✓ Production of drinking water from sea water,
✓ Surface water purification,
✓ Anion-cation removal
