MEM-TEK laboratories has been placed in Maslak campus of Istanbul Technical University. Total area of the center is 780 m2. Laboratories of the center are consisting of 4 main parts;
Membrane production and development
Center has also meeting room, offices for researchers, chemical storeroom and cold storeroom.
Membrane Production and Development Laboratory
There are 3 different laboratory for membrane fabrication and development in MEM-TEK. In first laboratory, pilot and lab scale flat sheet membrane production can be carry out. In the second laboratory, pilot scale hollow fiber membrane production can be carry out. Moreover, there is a thin film composite coating machine for manufacturing of nanofiltration and reverse osmosis membranes in the first laboratory. In third laboratory, both lab and pilot scale electrospinning machines exist. In this laboratory is studied on membrane fabrication via nanofibers
Module Development Laboratory
Must be brought into the membranes produced in order to use the module. For this purpose, the development lab module has been established.
Process Development Laboratory
Performance tests carry out on produced membranes and modules in this laboratory. Working on innovative processes and providing improvement activities for existing processes. Also, developing appropiate treatment principles and refinablity tests of distinctive sectores wastewaters in this laboratory.
In theses laboratories, physical and chemical properties of fabricated membranes is analyzed with the most new technological equipments. Besides, water and wastewater characterization can be done in these laboratories.
Pilot-Scale Systems Laboratory
Before a real plant established, final step, Pilot scale system tries. In theese laboratory , a lot of membrane processes exist of pilot scale systems.
