CeraMem ceramic microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) membranes are less prone to fouling, have greater resistance to high temperatures, aggressive and abrasive cleaning chemicals and typically have a doubled membrane life than conventional polymeric membranes.

Jeremy Wakeham, industrial sales manager, Elga Process Water said: “Ceramic membranes are ideal for the really tough applications in surface treatment like alkaline degreasing, cutting oil treatment and electrocoat paint treatment and CeraMem makes the life-cycle costs comparable to polymeric membranes.”

CeraMem MF andf UF membranes from Elga Process Water combine proprietary construction materials with unique membrane chemistry in large-diameter monolith blocks which provide higher capacity than competitive ceramic membranes, providing a more compact plant footprint.
