Membranes are a type of selective barrier used for separation or concentration of feed stream. A membrane allows some constituents of the feed stream to pass through and others are retained on the surface of the membrane. The constituents of the feed stream that are allowed to pass through the membrane are known as permeates and that are retained back are known as concentrates or retentates. Different types of membranes are used in the Food industry depending on their pore sizes. The common types of technology implemented for membranes are ultrafiltration, microfiltration, reverse osmosis, and nanofiltration. Also, other membrane technologies such as membrane contractors, electrodialysis, and pervaporation are used in the Food industry, but with a smaller market share. The advantages of membrane technology over conventional separation technologies are listed below:
- Gentle product treatment
- Ease of installation and extension
- High selectivity
- Low energy consumption
However, the only disadvantage of membrane technology in the Food industry is membrane fouling, which causes reduction in flux, thus hampering the productivity and performance of membranes.
