Morgan Technical Ceramics, a leading manufacturer of ceramic components, is developing new ceramic membranes for water filtration and purification for use in industrial wastewater treatment processes. With water scarcity affecting one in three people globally, there is increased demand for businesses to conserve water and be more sustainable. Morgan Technical Ceramics' new products will help industrial operations to be more environmentally friendly and efficient. The reliability of the ceramic membranes enables businesses to reduce maintenance and energy usage and make associated cost savings.
Traditionally polymer or ceramic tubular membranes are currently used to clean and conserve water in industrial wastewater applications. However, polymer systems need replacing regularly, especially if not tailored to the application, and ceramic tubular membranes need high water flow rates to operate effectively.
The new high quality porous ceramic disc membranes have many benefits compared to polymer substrates. The ceramic is robust and gives high performance where high temperatures and aggressive cleaning chemicals are prevalent. They can withstand the harsh environments found in wastewater treatments and as a result, they are long-lasting and do not need replacing as often as plastic alternatives.
Also, the new ceramic disc membranes do not need a high water flow rate that is required for current ceramic tubular membranes. Therefore businesses can save energy and costs associated with pumping water at lower flow rates.
Morgan Technical Ceramics has the ability to manufacture components to highly complex geometries and to tight tolerances and its ceramic membranes are just 20 microns in thickness (around 1/5th of the diameter of a human hair). The porous ceramic membrane systems are ideal for use in ultrafiltration applications that collect bacteria and purify industrial wastewater allowing it to be reused in the plant or safely discharged into the environment.
"Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in businesses and the environmental benefits of water filtration are well recognized," says Paul Manison, business manager, Morgan Technical Ceramics. "At Morgan Technical Ceramics we work closely with our customers to understand industry demands so we can design and develop high quality products to meet specific needs. I'm delighted our new water filtration membranes will help businesses to operate more efficiently, save money and conserve water."
Morgan Technical Ceramics has over 50 years experience of providing robust and reliable solutions for industrial applications.
