Saltworks ships modular and intelligent removal plant to the Middle East

Saltworks recently delivered a modular ‘plug and play’ digitized BrineRefine and XtremeUF system to a client in the Middle East.

Integrated in a compact and fully automated plant, BrineRefine and XtremeUF enable Saltworks’ industrial clients to target ions of value or concern with substantially reduced waste.

BrineRefine continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR) modules are modernized chemical reaction systems with a higher degree of precision and control. They produce battery-grade lithium chemicals or selectively remove ions of concern such as metals, silica, calcium, sulfates and fluorides.


The delivered plant operates at a capacity of 200 GPM (1,100 m3/day) and precipitates a key ion of interest. The XtremeUF ceramic ultrafiltration unit polishes the BrineRefine output to reject sub-micron sized precipitants and is configurable with membranes of different pore sizes. This ensures complete treatment while also making the plant’s output flow ready for downstream membrane processing.
