Think Outside the Box

The External Principle

We at Berghof Membranes believe in external membrane filtration and it is the passion that drives us to “think outside the box”.

The Berghof Membranes filtration systems are positioned outside the bioreactor and utilize variable crossflow velocity to keep the membranes working at optimal conditions. If necessary, this process is supported with permeate backwash (temporarily reversed permeate flow) or chemical backwash protocols.

Tubular membrane filtration is frequently applied in the external configuration because of the greater ease in cleaning, zero odor emissions and overall superior robustness thus making
