The best possible water quality – whether that is potable, domestic, industrial, agriculture, aquaculture, backwash or otherwise – is a continuing priority for governments across the world, as well as for bodies such as the WHO.
Mantec has developed a number of technical ceramic materials and products used in the water purification process, capable of being incorporated into both aeration and diffusion systems, and that prove effective in removing a variety of contaminants and micropollutants.
Our Pyrolith and Coralith porous ceramic filters feature controlled porosity and permeability characteristics, high coalescing levels, and the ability to handle acidic gases and remain effective at temperatures up to 900°C (1650°F). These are inert, alumina-based products that maximise transfer efficiency and are highly flexible in terms of system configuration.
Our sintered ceramic diffusers suit applications where there is a demand for continuous aeration, with particular uptake where problems exist with the chemical resistance of membrane materials, and for facilities involved in the ozonation of drinking water.
Mantec also offers its Star-Sep ceramic elements for a wide range of industrial water treatment plants. Star-Sep membrane filters have been specifically developed for efficient crossflow microfiltration and feature unique star-shaped channels that increase the filtration area and induce turbulence at lower crossflow velocities. This concept reduces volume compared with a circular channel of the same diameter and requires a lower pump energy input.
