Bruce Scholten hired to head Filtronics’ service department
Filtronics Inc. announced the addition of GE Water & Process Technologies reverse osmosis (RO) systems to its line of municipal and industrial water treatment solutions. According to Filtronics, the partnership will broaden its capabilities in the market for RO water treatment.
The Water Quality Assn.’s Guidelines for Disinfection and Sanitization of Water Treatment Equipment recommend that equipment be disinfected every six months, when it is serviced, after installation and when there is a contamination issue with the source water. If water treatment equipment is not properly sanitized, bacteria can grow and multiply on the inside surfaces of tanks and hoses.
Options for sanitizing RO and softener equipment
While consumers and business owners are now more cautious and conscientious with their dollars than at any time in recent history, there are still significant opportunities in both residential and commercial water treatment. These opportunities rely on three important facts:
RO system’s results outweigh initial problems
Uncle Sam and the U.S. Army recently called for an enlistment, but not in the traditional sense. This time, they needed to design and install a complete potable water treatment system for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at the Ft. Stewart army base in Savannah, Ga.
Well water quality at army base creates unexpected challenges
R2 and M2-Series RO systems are engineered and manufactured for commercial and light industrial applications and for feed waters up to 10,000 TDS. These high-efficiency systems use low-energy membrane elements that deliver high quality water at low operating pressures. This in turn makes AXEON R2 and M2-Series the first low-energy brackish water systems in the marketplace.
If you do not have the time or dedication to do it right the first time, what makes you think you will have the time or opportunity to do it twice? In the water treatment industry, there are many shortcuts available. They may look appealing at first; however, the long-term result could be the erosion of your reputation and customer base.
Providing quality customer service for long-term success
R2-series and M2-series reverse osmosis systems are engineered and manufactured for commercial and light industrial applications and for feedwaters up to 10,000 TDS. These high-efficiency systems utilize Filmtec LC LE low-energy membrane elements, making them the first low-energy brackish water systems in the industry.
Commercial reverse osmosis (RO) systems encompass a wide variety of applications. Some applications, such as metal plating or boiler feed water, require pure water with low dissolved solids. Other applications, in which a higher dissolved solids content is acceptable, such as car wash or drinking water applications, need to produce as much water as possible, or just enough water at the lowest cost possible.
Each of these categories presents unique challenges to commercial OEMs to configure systems that reduce the total water cost (TWC) to their customers.
New RO elements can lower total water costs
Started in 1988, Dunbar Water/Mr. H2O Pumps and Filters began as a simple operation, with founder Carl Dunbar working out of his home and using his Subaru to make sales calls. Since then, a “can-do” attitude and a dedication to providing excellent customer service have helped the business grow.
Today, the dealership has 10 employees, a fleet of six vehicles and a 2,400-sq-ft warehouse with an office and showroom. It is also the exclusive Evolve Dealer for Water-Right in southern Maine.
Maine dealer finds success by focusing on the small stuff
Flexeon AT, BT, CT, DT and GT series reverse osmosis systems are engineered, manufactured and factory-tested to provide an affordable, high-quality solution for commercial and industrial applications. These high-efficiency low-energy systems use Axeon membrane elements that deliver high-quality water at low operating pressures.
