Argonide’s NanoCeram® technology protects systems and equipment and saves you money. 

NanoCeram's unique and patented electropositive material property allows it to excel at removing particulate matter at a low pressure drop through adhesion. Resulting in reduced energy consumption, increased component life, reduction in maintenance cycles, and downtime leading to improved operational readiness.
NanoCeram has a wide range of applications as a prefilter or pretreatment for RO, boilers, industrial equipment, cooling towers, office coffee service equipment (OCS) or other commercial uses.

Reverse Osmosis, Softeners & DI

Prevent premature biofouling, extend RO membrane life, reduce RO membrane replacement frequency, and reduce energy consumption without the use of chemicals or system pressure drop.


Remove legionella bacteria and reduce cleaning frequencies of cooling towers, sump water systems, humidifiers, evaporative air coolers, and large central air-conditioning systems.

Plant &

Prevent early equipment scaling and fouling while reducing wash cycles and maintenance downtime.  Protect plant boilers, cooling towers, and chillers without using treatment chemicals and foams.


Reduce particulate matter, prevent clogging and extend the equipment life of water nozzles, sprinklers, micro jets, micro sprayers, mister nozzles, and drip emitters.

Unique Benefits of NanoCeram® Technology

  • DECREASES energy usage
  • REDUCES reject water
  • STOPS premature fouling of your RO membrane
  • INCREASES the effective lifetime of your RO membrane
  • REDUCES cleaning cycles
  • DECREASES wear & tear associated with cleaning products

Equipment Protection Case Studies

Automotive Manufacturing

Once weekly cleaning cycles for industrial reverse osmosis membranes were significantly reduced to a once every 12 months cleaning cycle.

Food & Beverage Production

The effective lifetime of a GF PLUS filter element was increased by 3 to 4 times resulting in a reduction of total filtration costs for the user by 30%.

Food & Beverage Production

Total permeate production of a commercial reverse osmosis system was increased by 22% using a NanoCeram® 2.5” x 20” electropositive filter cartridge solution.

Our Innovators



Founder and CEO
1934 - 2022

Fred Tepper is the genesis and driving force behind all that is Argonide. Fred, a problem solver and solutions expert in the world of science, innovated many things and advanced many industries throughout his career. He and his research and development team at CRC (Catalyst Research Corporation) developed and patented a revolutionary lithium battery. The creation of which revolutionized the world of medicine by helping to enable the modern pacemaker. In 1997, he founded Argonide as an investment in nanotechnology and soon turned the focus of Argonide to water/fluid filtration to once again innovate and change an industry. The technology he developed yielded an electropositive adsorption material that could capture molecules as small as a virus. It was that material that later would become NanoCeram® filter media, a patented Argonide technology.


Vice President, Research and Development

Leonid Kaledin is a brilliant and accomplished scientist with a long distinguished career. He has 70+ papers published in peer-reviewed international journals, 60+ granted patents and patent applications and citations of more than 1500. He has worked in the fields of spectroscopy, laser spectroscopy and water filtration. Under NASA sponsorship, Leo developed a Nano-Ceramic sterilization filter for recycling wastewater to produce potable and hygiene waters for NASA’s space advanced life support programs. Leo is the co-inventor of Argonide’s NanoCeram® and DEAL® water filtration media.

Argonide strives to provide quality and cost effective water filtration products that meet or exceed our customer's requirements by continuously improving its processes and our quality management system.
