Value Proposition

Water Treatment Exclusive Technology
  • Organoclays are a well established category of products used in industrial water treatment as a consumable media for removal of oil and grease and some dissolved organics
  • Most organoclays are derived from sodium aluminum silicates, causing them to swell- this can drastically limit capacity and raise OPEX due to consumable use.
  • XPS has developed a patented non-swelling organoclay product which can be deployed in cartridge, canister, or bulk bed format to remove organics with high efficiency and high capacity.

In comparison with competing consumable polishing technologies, XOP:


Doesn’t swell causing premature change-out

Retains significantly more oil by weight (50-70%)

Performs consistently on the broadest range of oil APIs

Maintains performance in the presence of process chemicals

Can be applied as consumable absorbent or non-consumable coalescer
