EAST ROCHESTER, NY, Dec. 13, 2005 -- Filtros Ltd has been issued a U.S. Patent for an all-ceramic gas diffuser for use in water and wastewater treatment, the company announced Nov. 28.

This one-piece design is formed of a gas permeable porous alumina diffuser ceramically bonded at high temperatures to an impervious ceramic holder yielding a corrosion resistant product. Stainless steel components, polymer gaskets and cements of any kind have been eliminated.

Due to this leak free design, customers expect to experience lower operating costs by achieving higher efficiencies. Lower maintenance costs are also realized due to its gasket free design and one piece construction.

With its 3/4" NPT connection, this diffuser is designed to retrofit into existing systems. Originally developed for corrosive ozone systems, third party testing also indicates the combination of materials and design produces a highly flexible diffuser that can be used in many different systems operating a wide range of gases and gas flow parameters.

With more than 90 years of experience in water and waste water treatment, Filtros ( continues its tradition of innovation.
