Technology

We manufacture our membrane and substrate from Alpha Silicon Carbide (SiC) on a flat sheet structure. This provides some unique advantages in water treatment:

  • High flux rate reduces footprint, energy & chemical consumption

  • Chemically inert provides high chemical resistance

  • Negatively charged surface reduces fouling of organics and oil

  • Extremely hard & durable makes it easy to clean

  • Simplified flow sheet no need for pre-sedimentation

  • New Process opportunities not used before with membranes (Ozone, Powdered Carbon, Pressure washing, etc.)


product specification:

  • 0,1 µm nominal pore size (MF/UF)

  • Assymetric structure and high porosity

  • Outside.in filtration direction

  • Submerged vacuum driven flat sheet membrane

Hydrophilic membrane surface:

A membranes contact angle to water is an accurate measure of how hydrophilic a membrane is. The more hydrophilic the membrane surface the higher the operating  flux rate. Achieved benefits using Cembrane:

  • 3-10x the flux compared to polymeric

  • Unmatched low footprint

  • Low pressure operation at high flow

  • High recovery rates

  • Applicable for high sludge concentration

Chemically inert membrane material:

Silicon Carbide has complete chemical resistance. This provides a range of benefits in various applications:

  • Can operate in extreme environments 

  • Durable & reliable operation

  • Fast and easy restoring of permeability

  • High resistance to wide a pH range, oxidants even ozone

Low fouling potential on Cembrane’s membrane surface:

Due to the negative charge of the membrane surface on a wide pH range, the membrane is less prone to fouling and clogging and allows for less maintenance equirement.
