This research aims at comparing two nanoparticles (Aluminium oxide and zinc oxide) coated ceramic membrane with self-cleaning ability for the effectively separation of low concentration ([less than] 250mg/L) Oil-in-Water O/W Emulsion. Preliminary experiments have been done to determine the morphology and pure water flux of unmodified commercial ceramic membrane using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and in-house installed rig separator respectively. An uneven pore size with a densely packed image from SEM indicates an increase in flux. Steady pure water permeate flux shows possibility of anti-fouling in ceramic membrane.
