Increase reliability, reduce complexity.



Robust, reliable water solutions for
industrial operations.

Industrial water users have a very unique set of challenges, and water is a critical component to supporting manufacturing operations. As industrial users deal with more complex wastewater streams as well as impaired water resources to support utility operations, they need robust, reliable solutions that can operate across a wide range of operating conditions.

Our ceramic filtration technology encapsulated in our CM-151 module is designed to efficiently and effectively remove solids, protecting downstream operations and ensuring regulatory compliance. The robust structure of this membrane allows the technology to be used as a new platform for solids removal across a number of industrial applications — from variable surface water sources to challenging wastewater streams to optimized reuse schemes.

Featured applications


Pre-treatment for RO

Cooling towers

Sidestream filtration and blowdown recycle


Primary treatment for solids removal


Suspended solids removal, pre-treatment for TDS removal/RO operations


Pre-treatment for brackish and seawater RO systems


Solving for a wide range of industry applications.

At Nanostone Water, we have experience in key applications across a wide variety of industry segments — including mining, power generation, semiconductor, chemicals and refining, and more.


An ideal solution for complex water challenges.

Miners face a myriad of challenges when it comes to water management. Not only are the nature of water and waste streams challenging to treat, but operations also need to be simple and trouble-free to accommodate the remote nature of the locations of mines.

Being able to treat harsh water conditions using a robust, reliable solution that does not require significant operational oversight makes the CM-151 technology ideal for applications such as dewatering, tailings, acid mine drainage and general reuse.


Vastly improving RO pre-treatment at a fraction of the lifecycle cost.

High-purity water is critical to power generation and significant focus is placed on these water systems. The compact design of our CM-151 ceramic membrane as well as its high operational reliability and long lifespan make this solution ideal for pre-treatment of critical RO operations.

In addition, as discharge requirements become more challenging in many parts of the world, treatment of cooling tower blowdown has become a more prevalent solution to treat and reuse this waste stream. The CM-151 system is designed to protect downstream RO operations in a compact, robust footprint.


Designed for a wide range of challenging applications.

Semiconductor fabs and foundries are coming under more intense scrutiny for their environmental impact, particularly as demand increases for the latest innovations in chip design. This can be at odds with the increasing demand for water as the industry also undergoes a growing number of wafer starts.

Our CM-151 technology is ideally suited for a number of high-solids and harsh applications, including cutting and grinding waste, HF wastewater, CMP waste streams and UPW systems.


A cost-effective alternative in process and utility water.

Chemicals and refineries oftentimes have to treat highly variable surface water streams for higher-purity applications within their process and/or utility operations — particularly with the change of seasons. As many also look to reuse wastewater, they additionally face the challenge of removing solids to prepare the stream for beneficial reuse.

Our CM-151 technology is proven to be a cost-effective alternative to many conventional technologies, particularly when pre-treating for RO a compact, robust footprint.
