Characteristics of the Chemical Business
Consulting and solutions are our themes.
We take advantage of many years of experience with ion-exchange resins and separation membranes to propose systems that meet customer needs, from pure water treatment to wastewater treatment,
and to provide the ultimate level of performance as a company specializing in water treatment.
From providing ion-exchange resins, separation membranes, and water treatment chemicals to offering services from fabrication to recycling treatment as well as equipment design, construction and maintenance
Comprehensive support, from fabrication to recycling treatment
We offer comprehensive support, from collaborative analysis to proposals of separation methods,
table testing, pilot testing, and equipment installation.
Please contact us to discuss your water-related project and find out how we can assist,
including with loan equipment, design, maintenance, and consulting services.
Products and services
- Ion-exchange Resin
We offer a vast lineup of products to suit all types of needs.
It is important to select the appropriate products for the application even when using the same type of ion-exchange resin.
Find the optimal ion-exchange resin for the types of ions in the liquid to be processed, liquid volume, or processing speed.
- Separation membranes
In recent years, membrane treatment has been used in development of a wide range of applications, in addition to pure water production, such as wastewater treatment, purification of pharmaceuticals and food products, separation of active ingredients,seawater desalination, and so forth. Muromachi Chemicals applies the separation technology it has developed through ion-exchange resin using various types of separation membranes to membrane separation applications, focusing its efforts on developing a next-generation separation technology.
- Ion-exchange fibers
Enabling high-speed ion absorption and desorption while efficiently capturing even low-concentration ions
Ion-exchange fibers and chelate fibers, both of which are fiber-type ion exchangers, can efficiently desorb ions because they have greater surface area than standard resin beads.
- Water treatment systems and
We supply total solutions that meet customers’ needs with water-treatment products including filter media, equipment, and chemicals.
- Commissioned chemical processing
Taking advantage of many years of experience and expertise along with a variety of treatment equipment related to ion-exchange resins and separation membranes, we offer comprehensive support by providing processing that satisfies customers’ needs, recycling treatment as part of cost-saving proposals, and a range of analysis and testing services to provide customers safety and peace of mind.
We operate an array of treatment equipment related to ion-exchange resins and separation membranes. We can accommodate processing on all scales, and we can meet a broad range of needs, from semiconductor-grade to food and pharmaceuticals and even wastewater treatment applications.
Cleaning, regeneration, and ion substitution equipment
Performs everything from regeneration of ion-exchange resin for pure water to substitution to the desired iron shape, pure water cleaning, and ultrapure water cleaning.
Can also perform thermal regeneration and hot pure water cleaning.
For specialty applications, the catalyst support and resin particle size can be adjusted through classification, or deodorization treatment can be performed on the resin, for example.
Ultrapure water cleaning and manufacturing equipment
A polisher tank for ultrapure water sampling is filled with ion-exchange resin that is then cleaned with ultrapure water.
After cleaning, nitrogen purging is performed on the polisher tank before delivering the product.
Ion-exchange resin dryers
We dry ion-exchange resins using a fluid bed dryer. The system is installed in a clean environment to prevent contamination. This dryer is specially designed for ion-exchange resin, and can efficiently dry ion-exchange resin without reducing its performance.
Ion-exchange resin mills/classifier
Ion-exchange resins are transported at low speed using a suction-driven high-concentration pneumatic transport system and used to fill primary packaging containers while minimizing product loss.
Our system, which can transport 60 kg per hour, automatically handles the entire filling process, up to ejection of the filled containers.
MF/UF membrane cleaners
On-site start-up times can be reduced by cleaning MF and UF membranes.
Additionally, used MF and UF membranes can be reused by subjecting them to chemical cleaning.
RO membrane cleaners
On-site start-up times can be reduced by cleaning RO membranes with ultrapure water. Additionally, RO membranes can be reused by subjecting them to chemical cleaning.
Pure-water manufacturing equipment
Our high-purity pure-water manufacturing systems, which can also be used in semiconductor manufacturing, have applications in our own product manufacturing and cleaning operations, including in the Pharmaceutical Business, Chemical Business, and Functional Materials Business.
Different systems for manufacturing ultrapure water, pure water, and RO water are used depending on the product being manufactured.
