KSS ultrafiltration (UF) membrane technology offers an excellent solution for pretreatment of brine. Our membrane product features a reinforced PVDF hollow fiber membrane and an innovative single-potting design to reduce buildup of fiber sludge. The membrane system offers an optimized design to lower operating and capital costs and produce high-quality effluent.
Our approach to lithium selective sorption combines decades of ion exchange and sorption technology experience to achieve Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE). This extraction method results in increased lithium recovery, higher purity product, and overall improvements in extraction performance and efficiency.
Ion exchange technology is employed downstream of the DLE step to further polish and purify the brine and remove contaminants from leaching acid to achieve a recoverable and reusable process acid.
Reverse osmosis (RO) membrane technology produces a concentrated final lithium chloride product for use in lithium battery production.
