The application of a pressure differential across the membrane causes a sieving process. Substances smaller than the pore size of the membrane pass with the solvent (permeate) while larger solutes or particles are retained (retentate or concentrate).
Membrane filtration is a simple process to implement and requires little maintenance. It is commonly used in the chemical, food and beverage, water and textile industries.
