SANFORD, Fla. — Argonide Corporation, a filter manufacturer, is pleased to acknowledge the recent announcement of a collaborative effort between Dow Water & Process Solutions and Ahlstrom Advanced Filtration relative to Ahlstrom's Disruptor filter media, which is under license from Argonide, according to a press release.

In 2006, Argonide licensed Ahlstrom to manufacture non-woven filter media using Argonide's patented NanoCeram electropositive filtration technology.

Designed with Disruptor filter media, Dow will develop a line of filtration devices to address drinking water needs in the point-of-use markets, noted the release.

NanoCeram is an electropositive non-woven pleated filter with an average 2-micron pore size, which is very effective at filtering sub-micron particles at high flow rates. It is used extensively in residential, commercial and industrial water purification.

In addition to primary filtration, NanoCeram filters exhibit excellent attributes as prefilters for other systems including RO membranes, UV chambers and ion exchange beds.
