QUEBEC CITY, Feb. 19, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSX-V: HEO) – H2O Innovation Inc. ("H2O Innovation") wishes to make an update on the activities of its specialty chemicals business sector known as Professional Water TechnologiesTM ("PWT" or the "Company"). PWT, a specialist in membrane filtration chemicals and membrane forensics services, is proud to present today its updated proprietary scaling prediction software, ProDose XPRTTM, and announces the addition of a new Regional Sales Manager and a new distributor in the Philippines.
Improved scaling prediction software
The new version of PWT's proprietary scaling prediction software, ProDose XPRTTM, to be made available next month, is armed with new calculation algorithms based on the latest US Geological Survey (USGS) speciation and saturation-index calculations, making it more precise, and therefore more reliable. In addition to the use of new algorithms, several new functionalities will be introduced. Users can now create cases to study multiple operating conditions, and directly enter concentrate analyses, leading to the optimal selection of PWT products and dosages. The reports generated by the scaling prediction software have also been improved for content and readability. "We are excited to release ProDose XPRTTM which has received a fresh new interface allowing for a more efficient and refined user experience. Important improvements were made, in particular to our saturation modeling, making ProDose XPRTTM an essential tool for system operational design. We've also added new features which make the arduous task of creating projections and calculating dosages that much easier" mentioned Ryan Furukawa, Director Specialty Chemicals at PWT.
Available upon request only, ProDose XPRTTM was developed for our distributors, operators and engineers to help them better advise, operate and design water treatment systems. The new ProDose XPRTTM will facilitate their work and provide them with reliable information benefitting users of PWT specialty chemicals.
Regional Sales Manager for Calgary
The PWT commercial team continues to grow with the addition of a new Regional Sales Manager. Mr. Mazen El-Labban's commercial and technical knowledge in the mining and oil & gas industries will benefit PWT as it grows within those industrial segments. Furthermore, his contacts and working knowledge of the Middle East will stimulate the Company's presence in this region as well.
Prior to joining PWT, Mr. El-Labban worked as a Sales Manager for a company offering water and wastewater solutions. His duties included identifying and developing new market opportunities, delivering sustainable sales growth and managing the complete bid-sale cycle of municipal projects; all experiences that will help him in his new role at PWT.
