QUEBEC CITY, July 25, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: HEO) - H2O Innovation Inc. ("H2O Innovation" or the "Company") is proud to announce today the
introduction of its new FiberFlexTM MF/UF membrane module rack design. This skid is physically designed to
accommodate several types of microfiltration and ultrafiltration
modules. The Company is also launching another innovative platform with
a second generation containerized and dual train Membrane Bioreactor
dedicated to wastewater effluent.
Providing interchangeability between the most popular hollow fiber
membrane modules, the FiberFlexTM accommodates modules supplied by Dow, Hydranautics, Toray, Asahi and
GE. Depending on the membrane product to be used, the correct module
holding plate are selected, and the bottom support beam holding the
modules is moved to the correct height and mounted using a set of
predrilled holes. This skid provides the opportunity to take advantage
of a much wider hollow fiber market during the design phase. And when
module replacement is required, the FiberFlexTM racks will allow users to take advantage of future product developments
from several membrane manufacturers rather than relying on sole sourced
membrane modules that may have inferior performance and non-competitive
In addition to the FiberFlexTM mechanical flexibility, the system controls and programming can be
adapted to meet the operational, backwash and CIP requirements of
various process configurations. With the FiberFlexTM, changing module supplier goes from very complicated and onerous, to
something easily managed and economical. The Company expects to
commission its first FiberFlexTM installation by the end of this year.
H2O Innovation is proud to be the first company in North America to offer
such a versatile hollow fiber rack. This innovation will allow the
Company to enhance its offer and reinforce its leading position in the
water treatment industry. Engineers and customers will greatly benefit
from this added flexibility in design and operation that provides
procurement leverage to the end-user.
Containerized Membrane Bioreactor (MBR)
H2O Innovation has developed a containerized Membrane Bioreactor (MBR)
package; an advanced wastewater treatment solution that can meet or
exceed typical wastewater effluent regulations throughout North
America. The membranes used allow for an extremely compact system that
can treat up to 100 m3/d. The combination of an activated sludge process with membrane
filtration leads to a versatile system that can be used for many
different applications to provide superior solids removal while
minimizing sludge production and enhancing nutrient removal.
Fully integrated into a standard shipping container, this MBR can be
easily transported to an isolated work site or to remote communities
with access problems. The container can be insulated to endure the
toughest weather conditions, and has full redundancy to allow
maintenance while it continues to treat incoming wastewater. This will
be by far the most compact and versatile containerized wastewater
treatment package on the market to offer treatment redundancy usually
found only in much larger plants.
