In this present work, the effects of phase inversion ceramic membranes prepared by phase inversion were investigated. Kaolin with 25µm was used as the composition of membrane preparation. The amounts of kaolin investigated were 60g, 70g and 80g respectively while the temperature was conducted assist room temperature and 3°C. Non-solvent additive with 6g distilled water present formation of pore during phase inversion.The effects of phase inversion temperature and kaolin composition on morphology and porosity were investigated in detail. Result of porosity showed that by decreasingphase inversion temperature improve the membrane porosity up to 64%. In addition, the FESEM images explained that membrane morphology obviously change with the effect of temperature during phase inversion process.
