Pressure driven membrane processes show interesting properties which make them very attractive for chemical reuse and energy saving in various industrial fields 1. Ultrafiltration in particular appeared from the early 70’s a very promising process in a large number of different industrial separation steps in the pharmaceutical and food industry, in the treatment of industrial water containing macromolecules and colloids etc. Large scale industrial applications of ultrafiltration are, however, still in the early stages of development and acceptance, largely because of the slow evolution of high-performance, dependable, low cost and long-lived membrane modules suitable for high capacity service.
