Cerahelix, Inc.

A new twist in filtration- the CeraHelix nano-filtration membrane reduces the cost to the environment and increases profits for our customers.

Company Summary


CeraHelix produces filters that can clean fracking water enough for recycling and re-use. This reduces disposal costs from $8 to $1 per barrel, and reduces stress on freshwater resources. Our membranes filter faster, better, and longer. We provide high purity separations even under harsh, high fouling conditions. Our patented DNA ceramic coating process creates filters that can remove contaminants 10 times smaller than competing ceramic filters.
