Membrane Filtration Plants

LeanFlux and other Innovative Concepts

SiccaDania Filtration continuously improves designs and concepts, creating better and more efficient processes for membrane filtration.

Driving innovation

The more than 200+ years of experience have given our team a unique insight into ways of improving membrane filtration.

New innovations from SiccaDania Filtration make it possible to reduce OPEX cost, increase yield, save water usage and reduced or more effective footprints. One of the key elements is also reducing the environmental impact. The flexibility of the plants as well as the price makes these great for both existing and new processing requirements.

The newest innovations are:

  • LeanFlux
  • LeanFlush
  • LeanFlow

LeanFlux – Cross Flow filtration with segmented modules

LeanFlux® (patent pending) represents the future of cross flow membrane filtration for low pressure applications such as MF & UF

LeanFlux is a special system design for Spiral Wound Cross Flow Membrane Filtration using segmented modules. The innovation around segmented modules is as ingenious as it is effective. LeanFlux® is a unique combination of proven technology using only known flow principles around the modules & membranes.

  • LeanFlux® will significantly improve known processes and substantially change the approach to known processes using Spiral Wound Cross Flow filtration within the dairy & food industry in general.
  • LeanFlux® will provide unprecedented energy savings to the general dairy & food industry processes using Spiral Wound Cross Flow filtration, meeting the increased environmental demands and sustainability goals going forward.
  • LeanFlux® expands the processing boundaries for Spiral Wound Cross Flow filtration – Innovation drives Innovation – opening new opportunities and applications for membrane filtration.

This statement from one of our customer’s Process Specialist summarises LeanFlux® perfectly.

“LeanFlux® is probably the single largest technology jump within polymeric cross-flow membrane filtration ever seen in the food industry

LeanFlush - Optimising cleaning

LeanFlush is a special design optimising detergent usage/efficiency and time during cleaning. The special feature is handled by adding special software to our standard application software. It can be retrofitted to plants supplied or adopted by SiccaDania Filtration. Please ask for more information and options for you to apply and benefit from LeanFlush.

LeanFlow - Optimising energy consumption

LeanFlow is a special design optimising energy consumption during start up and production on high pressure plants (NF & RO). The special feature is handled by adding special software to our standard application software. It can be retrofitted to plants supplied or adopted by SiccaDania Filtration. Please ask for more information and options for you to apply and benefit from LeanFlow.
