About this book

This book covers diverse types of ceramic membranes applied in separation processes. The authors present the preparation methods and well as the main application of ceramic membranes. Modules, microfiltration and ultrafiltration are topics described within the text. The final chapter focuses on water and wastewater treatment by membranes separation processes.

Frontmatter
Chapter 1. Introduction
Abstract
Membrane separation processes using membranes have proved to be one of the most attractive and promising fields of technological research in recent decades. These processes consist of a technology that has been being developed and designed to perform physical or physical–chemical separations.

Chapter 2. Overview Membranes Separations
Abstract
The technology of membranes separation is a field that involves many processes. These processes are subdivided according to the driving force applied, the feeding phases, the permeate, and the pores’ size.
Dionisio da Silva Biron, Venina dos Santos, Mara Zeni
Chapter 3. Ceramic Membranes Preparation
Abstract
In this chapter emphasis will be given to the main raw materials used in production of ceramic membranes as well as with the main processes of obtaining the same. The need to understand the phenomena involved in the processing of ceramic membranes, as well as the interaction of materials used is of utter importance for the performance of the final product, in accordance with the type of process used.

Chapter 4. Ceramic Membranes Characterization
Abstract
This chapter is about some of the main methods used in the ceramic membranes characterization. Some of these methods are permeability, solute rejection assays, porosimetry by mercury intrusion, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, among others.

Chapter 5. Applications of Ceramic Membranes
Abstract
This chapter presents some of the possible applications shown by ceramic membranes. The following areas will be given emphasis:

Chapter 6. Ceramic Membrane Modules
Abstract
Membrane module can be understood as a physical unit, which gathers all the elements that participate in the separation process. Membrane module is, basically, composed by membranes, channels where feed goes through, the permeate and concentrate, and by pressure or current support structures applied to the system.
