Spiral Water expands into solids management
11 April 2016
Spiral Water Technologies, a developer of advanced filtration solutions for difficult-to-treat waters, has expanded application of its award-winning technology into the solids management arena.
Working directly with clients to create industry-specific solutions, the company has introduced a filter system that offers a new waste management strategy that could prove valuable to the food & beverage sector, as well as other companies with high solids processing issues.
Spiral Water’s new filter system integrates the company’s flagship automatic self-cleaning filter with proprietary sensor technology that measures build-up of solids electronically and automatically activates the valve to purge them.
Because Spiral Water’s patented automatic filtration technology allows one-pass low micron filtration, requiring no backwash or crossflow, the high and variable solids are automatically concentrated and purged in the process. Spiral Water says this enables easy solids recovery and management, and the major reduction in diluted wastewater can lower clean-up expenses.
Market applications for the Spiral Water filtration system encompass oil and gas produced water; industrial water; desalination; wastewater reuse and recycling; marine and ballast water; mining; power generation and hydro power; food and beverage manufacturing; biodiesel/biofuels; and pretreatment for microfiltration, ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis.
Collected solids ready to convert from waste to resale.
