Spiral Water Announces New Technology to Dramatically Reduce Filtration Costs
Award-winning company releases two water filtration skids for Ultra-High and Variable Total Suspended Solids in difficult-to-treat environments
SAN FRANCISCO, Ca., October 26, 2015 – Founded in response to the growing global need for more efficient and affordable clean water solutions, Spiral Water Technologies, Inc. now offers two high solids water filtration skids with its next generation Model 810 automatic, self-cleaning filter. The FS1 and FS2 skids – with one and two Model 810 filters respectively – have been designed to address the problem of high and variable suspended solids removal found in multiple industries around the world. Delivering flows of up to either 75 or 150 gallons per minute, the FS1 and FS2 Skids remove ultra high and variable TSS of up to 25,000 mg/L, as well as oil and grease, in just one pass.
According to Ashwin Gulati, president and chief executive officer of Spiral Water, the Model 810 filter is key to the Skids’ performance. “The revolutionary design of the Model 810 filters up to 100 times dirtier water, providing continuous 10 to 100 micron filtration with 10% energy usage. This advanced technology for automatic, self-cleaning water filtration reduces both CapEx and OpEx with 99% water recovery, which dramatically reduces overall filtration costs.”
Compact and modular, the FS1 and FS2 Skids include an epoxy-coated steel support frame, pipe manifolds, and programmable electronics to control filter performance and purge timing. The systems can be configured to operate on pump feed, gravity feed or pump suction. Purge valves are available in manual, electric and air actuated styles, and can be configured for high water recover or constant bypass.
Market applications for the Skids 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.
