Ceramic membrane softeners are used for treatment applications where the reduction of water hardness caused by minerals is necessary. Aquatech’s R3MOD™ CeraSoft™ modular ceramic membrane softener utilizes advanced microfiltration technology to remove these minerals effectively.
Designed with robustness and efficiency in mind, R3MOD CeraSoft is a versatile solution that enables scale reduction for a diverse range of reverse osmosis feed and reject water applications at ultra-high fluxes and a smaller footprint, resulting in lower energy consumption than that of traditional softening systems.
Experience unparalleled hardness reduction through the strategic use of lime, soda ash, sulfuric acid, and caustic dosing.
Outperforming competing softening technologies, R3MOD CeraSoft, operates at higher thresholds, delivering benefits such as extended equipment lifespan and enhanced efficiency.
Harnessing the power of our proprietary ceramic microfiltration membrane CeraQ™, achieve 5-6 times the flux and 3 times the lifespan compared to polymeric configurations.
Our innovative system continually recycles suspended solids, preventing the concentration from exceeding 5%, ensuring sustained system performance and longevity.
Choose from four standard modules capable of treating up to 3,000 mg/L total hardness with >95% recovery rates, providing flexibility for various treatment needs.
The increasing costs of industrial disposal and the rising demand for high-recovery water treatment have necessitated versatile, compact, and cost-effective solutions. These systems must be easy to install and capable of accommodating a wide range of feed water conditions.
Modular solutions enable companies to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle water (R3) with optimal savings. Aquatech's R3MOD CeraSoft consistently delivers on these requirements, offering additional value through its flexible design, advanced automation, and the potential for seamless integration with R3MOD ARRO™ Advanced Recovery Reverse Osmosis and R3MOD AVMD™ Advanced Vacuum Membrane Distillation, providing a comprehensive high-recovery solution.
The recent surge in the use of tubular microfiltration by industrial end-users can be attributed to its remarkable ability to eliminate minerals, organics, and heavy metal contaminants before Reverse Osmosis (RO) treatment, all without the need for clarifiers, media filters, ultrafiltration, and dedicated softeners required in traditional configurations.
R3MOD CeraSoft seamlessly combines QUA’s CeraQ™ advanced ceramic membrane technology with Aquatech’s extensive RO process experience, embodying robust, modular, and efficient principles. This integration provides a complete solution for softening or heavy metals removal applications. Setting itself apart from competing technologies, CeraSoft achieves differentiation through its high flux, low energy consumption, membrane robustness, and ability to effectively mitigate the risks of organic fouling or hardness scaling downstream in the RO process.
