Drinking Water, Ultrafiltration

CFM Systems®, ItN's Ceramic Flat Membranes, offers the one step solution for common municipal water treatment plants.

The main challenges surrounding operating municipal wastewater treatment plants are optimal operation with lower operational expenses, meaning using less chemicals, and  producing high quality of filtered water from a stable reverse osmosis process with higher recoveries. CFM Systems® through a one step of ceramic ultrafiltration can achieve the removal of toxic and heavy metal pollutants. In addition, ItN has developed many processes for toxic and heavy metal removal for varying industrial waste.

ItN offers the whole solution for drinking water supply and has developed many processes for toxic and heavy metal removal for drinking water supplies.

The ItN patented processes Cer@Sorp® and Cer@Senic® are designed for removing iron, manganese, radium, arsenic and some other heavy metals from ground and surface water.

The ItN developed process for sea water pretreatment Cer@Sea® offers the turn key solution for reverse osmosis pretreatment in water plants.

CFM Systems® can replace the conventional methods with sand filters and polymeric filters for less CAPEX and less resulting OPEX.
