ELGA Process Water introduces new membrane solutions for surface finishing applications


ELGA Process water’s new range of membrane plant for the surface treatment industries feature CeraMem® industrial strength ceramic membranes.


By comparison with conventional polymeric membranes, CeraMem® ceramic microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) membranes are less prone to fouling and have greater resistance to high temperatures as well as aggressive cleaning chemicals and abrasion. Membrane life is typically doubled.


“Ceramic membranes are ideal for the really tough applications in surface treatment like alkaline degreasing, cutting oil treatment and electrocoat paint treatment”, says ELGA Process Water’s Industrial Sales Manager, Jeremy Wakeham, “and CeraMem® makes the life-cycle costs comparable to polymeric membranes.”


CeraMem® combines proprietary materials of construction with unique membrane chemistry in large-diameter monolith blocks that provide higher capacity than competitive ceramic membranes, providing a more compact plant footprint.
