Crossflow filtration

is a filtration method. The liquid that needs filtering is pumped parallel to a membrane with high velocity and the permeate is derived across the direction of flow. Due to the high velocity, the membrane surface is constantly cleaned and the build-up of a filter layer (see fouling) on the membrane is reduced. See ATF modules, filtrations, perfusion and tangential flow filtration.
