The GEA Filtration Model T pilot plant is a pilot-scale plant designed for application development of ceramic microfiltration and ultrafiltration. The unit can be configured for evaluation of separation characteristics of up to three different membrane porosities in parallel or it may be used to optimize process parameters once a particular porosity of membrane has been determined.

The Model T is specially designed to allow for very precise separations utilizing state-of-the-art, gradient layered ceramic membranes operating under tightly controlled transmembrane pressure. Alternately, it can be used for more conventional ceramic membrane filtration applications. The sophisticated control system design allows for convenient manipulation of a variety of process variables including cross-flow velocity, operating pressure, temperature and transmembrane pressure making the plant uniquely suited to complex molecular separations.
