Robust Filtration

Microfiltration is a membrane technical filtration process that removes contaminants from a fluid (liquid & gas) by passage through a microporous membrane.

A typical microfiltration membrane pore size range is 0.1 to 10 micrometres (┬Ám). Microfiltration is fundamentally different from reverse osmosis and nanofiltration because those systems use pressure as a means of forcing water to go from low pressure to high pressure.

Microfiltration can use a pressurized system but it does not need to include pressure.
