:: Basx Launches CERAMXTM  

Basx Systems has launched a range of water treatment systems, which it claims can remove 99% of unwanted metals from acid mine drainage, process waste-water and metal-finishing waste waters. The company's CERAMX™ systems have water-treatment capacities of 57 litre/min, 114 litre/min, 170 litre/mhi and 227 litre/min, and multiple units can be installed to treat greater volumes of waste water. The water is first chemically treated and then a ceramic micro-filter, with pores of some 0.2 microns in diameter, is used to filter the resulting precipitates. Once the filtered water clears the membrane, a 690 Kpa back-pulse of water cleans the filter.

According to Basx, the systems can effectively remove copper, cadmium, nickel, zinc, lead and other metals from waste waters. The membrane life is typically around ten years, and the system can operate over a pH range of 0-14 and at temperatures in excess of90°C.
