Waltham, MA, February 20, 2019 – Nanostone Water, Inc., a manufacturer of ceramic ultrafiltration membranes, announces speakers and exhibit participation at the 2019 Membrane Technology Conference and Exposition next week in New Orleans. The annual conference is co-sponsored by the American Membrane Technology Association and the American Water Works Association.
This year, Nanostone Water is presenting a case study of a UF ceramic retrofit of an existing Polymeric MF system at a surface water treatment plant. The retrofit methodology and experience will be discussed in detail along with the comparison performance of the UF and MF systems running side by side. “This project was an exciting one for both Nanostone and the customer,” explains Aditya Kumar who co-authored the paper, “the customer needed to expand capacity within a limited foot print, and needed to make several operational improvements. The UF system exceeded the expectations.”
In another session at the conference, Dr. Winnie Shih will be one of the experts at the Ceramic Membrane Experts in the Round session on Wednesday, Feb 27th. In this open discussion, experts will lead discussions and answer questions about ceramic membranes.
The Nanostone Water team will be exhibiting once again at the Membrane Technology Conference in booth number 308.
About Nanostone Water
The CM-151TM ceramic membrane from Nanostone Water was launched in February 2017, and is a unique high surface area pressurized ultrafiltration monolith style membrane module with improved permeate flow efficiency and lower energy consumption versus currently available ceramic membranes. The form factor enables replacement of existing PUF hollow fiber modules with minimal system modifications. Together, with the improved energy efficiency, the high surface area and unique segmented construction drastically reduces cost of ownership, making Nanostone’s ceramic UF module competitive with polymeric UF/MF systems.Headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, the company has ceramic manufacturing operations in Halberstadt, Germany.
