Nanotechnolgy, carbon nanotubes, membrane


Seldon’s patent-pending technology harnesses the unique properties of the carbon nanotube by building them into a membrane that can be tailored to remove an array of contaminants. The uniqueness of this technology is based on the molecule’s ability to be manipulated in a wide variety of ways. Seldon’s membrane removes inorganic contaminants such as Arsenic, Lead, Chlorine, Iodine, Uranium, and others. It removes Total Organic Carbons and endotoxins, as well as exceeds the EPA’s standards of log 6 removal for bacteria, and log 4 removal for viruses. Further, it removes contaminants to below pharmacological standards for water for injection into the human body. Seldon’s membrane is easy to use, requires no energy, (only minimal pressure), offers a fast flow rate and yields immediate results. Pressure ranging from 2 to 80 PSI can be applied depending on the product. These discoveries have led to a NASA NanoTech Briefs Award for Seldon as a “top 50” innovator that will significantly impact key nanotechnology commercial markets. Adaptable Water Purifiers ™ offer a responsive design when a wide variety of hazards and impurities from the environment must be removed.
