Microbial Control of Botanical Extracts using Star-Sep™ Ceramic Crossflow Microfiltration

William Ransom Ltd has utilised Star-Sep™ Ceramic Crossflow Microfiltration as a key part of the process in the production of botanical extracts.

An overview of William Ransom Ltd

The company was founded over 160 years ago in 1846 in Hitchin, Hertfordshire by William Ransom. William was a Quaker philanthropist and most importantly for us, a botanist. A contemporary of Charles Darwin, was a highly influential figure in early research into the analysis of botanicals.

Recycling process water containing Radioactive Contamination (NORMs)

The recycling of process water containing radioactive contamination within a Refurbishment Facility using Star-Sep™ Ceramic Crossflow Filtration

This crossflow microfiltration process, using Mantec’s patented star channel Star-Sep™ Ceramic Membranes, renders the filtered water bacterially inactive and free of NORMs, which means that it can be re-used within the process.

Star-Sep™ Ceramic Membranes in the Pharmaceuticals Industry

GlaxoSmithKline, the pharmaceuticals giant, cut operating costs at its drugs plant in Worthing UK, by replacing polymer with Star-Sep™ Ceramic Membranes

The installation of a Star-Sep™ Ceramic Membrane system was a critical, yet proportionally low-cost component of GlaxoSmithKline’s anti-biotic drug processing system, enabling a multi-million pound investment to be recouped within just 15 months.
