Disruptor technology has been proven to remove a wide range of contaminants from water including bacteria, virus, lead, tin, copper, chrome 3 and aluminum as well as colloidal minerals such as carbon dust and silica. Its unique characteristics make Disruptor an alternative filter media choice to membranes for many applications. These include point of entry and point of use potable water, pharmaceutical make up water, boiler feed water, chiller water, metals removal from waste water and filtration of gelatin, inks, starch, carbon, paint pigments and many other industrial and pharmaceutical processes. Disruptor functions effectively in liquid applications of both high and low salinity, up to 400°F and between ph4 and ph9.
Disruptor is based on Argonide technology developed through basic research conducted during the past five years. The development, partially funded by NASA, was aimed at purifying recycled water in advanced space vehicles used on the moon and beyond. Argonide’s NanoCeram water filter received the Space Foundation’s Hall of Fame award in 2005. Ahlstrom and Argonide have been working closely together to obtain independent test data validating the effectiveness of the technology and to initiate the commercialization process.
