WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT SILICON CARBIDE?
Silicon Carbide’s natural properties effortlessly attracts water while repelling foulants. This results in extremely high sustainable fluxes and the ability to operate reliably in high solids and oils, as well as under other difficult conditions that polymeric membranes have shied away from. Silicon carbide is also one of the hardest materials in the world and forms membrane plates that are solid as a brick and able to withstand the broadest range of temperature, pH, chemicals, and pressures. SiC membranes have achieved a new level of performance in some of the most demanding applications.
