Ceramic membrane is a process where fluid ﬂows through the tiny pores in the ceramic ﬁlter element, and particles larger than the pores of the ceramic ﬁlter are trapped on the surface. The ﬁrst ceramic membranes (CM) were produced in the 1980s, and ceramic ﬁltration was made from inorganic materials (such as alumina, titania, zirconia oxides, and silicon carbide).
The ceramic membrane is now progressively recognized in the water treatment industry. It is used for oil-water separation, sediment ﬁltration, water puriﬁcation and for chemically aggressive ﬂuid and high-temperature applications. A ceramic membrane is a good choice for extreme applications.
