Our Silicon Carbide Membrane Technology

Utilizing our unique, patented technology, our ceramic membranes offer consistent and continuous removal of particles, oil droplets and emulsions, and suspended solids at high throughput rates regardless of the feed conditions. This delivers premium liquid filtration, which enables you to recycle your liquid as well as potential unexploited resources that may be in your wastewater. Our silicon carbide membranes are ideal for the treatment of scrubber wash water, produced water for discharge and re-injection, pre-reverse osmosis (RO) as well as polymer flooded streams. We offer onshore and offshore solutions and have extensive experience with produced water streams for fracking, gas condensate, and oil emulsions.

We believe our membranes are the best alternative to micro flotation and walnut shell filters due to their cost savings delivered by reduced installation costs and reduced maintenance costs. Add to this, the extreme robustness of the silicon carbide ceramics delivers reduced downtime, which can optimize your operation significantly.

Our chemically inert, plug-and-play silicon carbide ceramic membranes are extremely hard, chemically resistant, and durable ceramics with high flux (flow), which contributes to increased membrane life and reduced downtime for cleaning of the membranes when fouled. Silicon carbide ceramic membranes are stronger, harder, longer-lasting, more temperature-resistant, and recover faster than conventional ceramic or polymeric membranes.

Durable in all Environments

To produce our silicon carbide ceramic, we have thoroughly developed a technology utilizing the ceramic membrane material silicon carbide, which is the hardest man-made material in the world and the second hardest material in the world solely beaten by diamonds. Our technology delivers unique strengths and unbreakable silicon carbide ceramics with an extremely long lifetime.

Due to the strength and extremely durable properties of our silicon carbide ceramic membranes, our technology is applicable in even the harshest and most strenuous industries and environments. Our silicon carbide ceramic membranes are market-proven and have been adopted by various industries for various types of applications all over the world. This, combined with our more than 20 years in the filtration industry, makes us capable of handling even the most complex tasks and processes within silicon carbide ceramic in all environments with a high level of expertise and precision.
