Forward Osmosis Cells

Forward Osmosis Cells

Sterlitech Forward Osmosis test cells are bench-scale cross/tangential flow membrane test cells used in osmotically driven applications such as Forward Osmosis (FO), Pressure Retarded Osmosis (PRO), or Pressure Assisted Forward Osmosis (PFO).

Sterlitech offers test cells that are designed for small scale filtration testing using polymeric flat sheet membranes:

CF016-FO and CF042-FO have a membrane active area of 20.6 cm2 (3.2 in2) and 42 cm2 (6.5 in2), respectively.

Sepa CF-FO cell has a membrane active area of 140 cm2 (24 in2).

In Sterlitech Forward Osmosis test cells, feed and draw solutions are circulated tangentially to the membrane filter. Passage of molecules through the membrane from the feed side to the draw side is driven by the osmotic pressure difference available between the feed and draw solution.

Forward Osmosis test cells are typically used in membrane applications such as:

  • Oil and gas Industry
  • Leachate treatment
  • Concentration of fruit juices and extracts
  • Brine concentration
  • Desalination of brackish water or seawater
  • Municipal or industrial water and wastewater purification

Sterlitech also offers parts and accessories required to have a complete system.
