VISTA, CA, Oct. 14, 2010 /CNW Telbec/ - H2O Innovation Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HEO)(ALTERNEXT:MNEMO:ALHEO) ("H2O Innovation" or the "Company"), a complete water treatment solutions
company providing custom designed water treatment systems along with
operating and maintenance solutions, announces that its California
business unit Professional Water Technologies ("PWT") has completed the
build-out and renovation of its environmentally-friendly dendrimer
antiscalant production facility in Vista, CA.
"The completion of PWT's new dendrimer production facility is an
exciting new step in our ongoing sustainability and efficiency
efforts", stated Stephen Dunham, PWT's founder and Vice President of
After-Market Consumables of H2O Innovation. "New upgrades to our production facilities enable us to be
15 times more efficient in our dendrimer synthesis and production
operations, generating greater economies of scale and quicker
turn-around time for our customers."
Since 1995, Professional Water Technologies has been producing its line
of phosphate-free dendrimer-based antiscalants for the global membrane
markets. "The fact that these products are super-concentrated plays a
significant environmental role globally compared to other
antiscalants", commented Coley Ali, PWT's Technical Director. "As
super-concentrates, these products have ten times less packaging waste,
they require ten times less transportation, and they are dosed only one
tenth as much as PWT's competitors' products."
The new dendrimer synthesis facility boasts a one-of-a-kind dendrimer
synthesis reaction vessel operated by redundant computers, compressed
air driven robots and mechanical equipment for efficient and accurate
packaging. "Large orders that may have taken weeks to complete can now
be produced in as little as a couple of days," explained Emil Karas,
PWT's manufacturing and regulatory manager.
PWT's manufacturing facilities are available for touring by appointment
only. Tours may be arranged by contacting PWT directly at 760-639-4400
