AM components in separation and purification

Additive manufacturing of turbulence promotors and membrane structures is a new approach to fabricating complex structures.

This second lecture relates to the topic of additive manufacturing in separation and purification technologies.

Our case examples are turbulence promoters and membranes. 3D printed promoters have been found to be the most suitable in preventing contamination of the membranes. Also membranes can be produced by additive manufacturing. With AM we can produce 3D structures whereas with traditional fabrication we can only produce membranes with 2D structures.
