ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

membrane technology

Okay kiddo, let me explain what membrane technology is to you. Imagine you have a bunch of tiny walls with tiny doors, which only allow certain things to pass through them. These walls are called membranes.

Now, some things are too big or too small to pass through the membrane pores. This means that only specific liquids or particles can pass through the membrane, while the others stay behind.

Membrane technology is used in all sorts of things, like purifying water or separating different types of chemicals. It works by forcing the liquid or gas to pass through the membrane under pressure, which separates the different components.

So, if you think of a strainer that only allows certain items to go through, that's what a membrane does. It helps us get rid of the things we don't want, and keeps the things we do want in a very precise way.
