Recovering valuable raw materials from liquid waste streams for our global customers is a key area to Xtract’s business. Xtract has enjoyed international success with the installation of its Glaze and Slip Reclamation Systems within the ceramics industry for more than 20 years.  

Xtract’s technology, which is based on crossflow filtration using specially designed robost ceramic membranes, has also been employed to recover valuable Zircona from waste slurry for the manufacture of metal pour filters within the investment casting industry. The technology can also be used for many other industrial liquid waste streams, either for material recovery or for the concentration of waste for disposal.

  • Many ceramics manufacturers around the world are using Xtract’s advanced technology to meet the highest of process standards and efficiencies. They are consistently enjoying significant cost savings by recovering glaze from their manufacturing process and contributing ultimately to a ‘zero waste policy’.

    Xtract’s glaze reclamation systems are designed to process dilute washings containing glaze overspray, delivering two liquid streams.

    The first stream is the recovered glaze at such a density and consistency that it can be blended with virgin glaze for re-use, providing the customer with tangible savings from the moment the system is commissioned.

    The second stream is filtered water which can be used as clean process water within the factory, or can be safely disposed of.

    Xtract offers its customers the opportunity to save money by reclaiming up to 100% of the raw material within the captured waste stream by integrating an Xtract system into the manufacturing process. The Xtract system provides precise density control in a reliable and simple to operate single process. High reliability and low maintenance costs give high plant availability which is essential to the customer’s process.

    The Xtract Process can significantly reduce waste handling and processing through conventional and expensive waste water treatment process plant. The Xtract system removes the necessity to discharge harmful constituents to drain and provides an assured quality of its recycled water enabling efficient re-use. The Xtract system significantly improves the environmental standing and accreditation of any company employing its technology.
