Alternative Applications

In my previous article, “Ultrafiltration: A Business Growth Opportunity” (September 2013), I referenced a 2010 BBC research report stating that “the U.S. market for ultrafiltration (UF) technologies was worth $940 million in 2010. It is estimated to be valued at $1.24 billion by 2015.”1 Simply put, the business opportunities for UF are growing rapidly, which could prove extremely profitable for the savvy professional water dealer.

ENPRESS, LLC

ENPRESS LLC is a leading manufacturer of composite pressure vessels utilized in water treatment. Manufacturers of Vortech and Mid-Vortech distribution technologies create fluidity of the media bed and extend contaminant removal capacity, which means less regenerations and reduction of water use. The backwashable POLY-UF offers 0.02 micron filtration at max service flow rates of 12 gpm treating colloids, bacteria, cysts, viruses, turbidity, tannins and other particles. Cartridge Tank is a direct replacement for inefficient 2.5- or 4.5-in. housings, or stainless steel cartridge housings. Seven filtration series options offer unique filtration capacities and flow rates from residential requirements up to 150 gpm.

  • The Yellow Series of filtration solutions for the Cartridge Tank filtration vessel is now available. This series consists of combination filters with an outer layer of polypropylene string and a meltblown polypropylene core. All components and materials are FDA approved.
  • The Poly-UF Pilot Stick is a pilot-testing device for use with the Poly-UF ultrafiltration system. It is a miniature version of the Poly-UF POE vessel and has nearly identical filtration and specification capabilities. Use it for applications in which it is uncertain the POE system will remove the targeted filtrate. It offers 0.02-micron filtration at test flow rates up to 0.8 gal per minute.
  • The 14-by-47 DI exchange vessel uses a high-impact and abuse-resistant elastomeric base that offers excellent rolling characteristics, reduced transportation weight compared to traditional rubber bases and design characteristics that will keep the base attached to the vessel. The co-polymer polypropylene liner formulation provides chemical, impact and abuse resistance.
  • These 12-in. DI exchange vessels are NSF approved with a 4.5-in. buttress top opening option or a 4-in. inlet option. The co-polymer polypropylene liner formulation provides superior performance in both hot and cold temperature environments. Its high-impact and abuse-resistant plastic base offers superior rolling characteristics and reduced transportation weight compared to traditional rubber...
  • The Vortech is now available in vessels 7 to 16 in. in diameter. The product design has an integrated fluid director, which gives structural support to the distributor.

Right From the Start

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.

Rainwater Recycling in the Lone Star State

Rainwater harvesting and storm water recycling are similar processes, but rainwater harvesting usually involves collecting water from cleaner surfaces, such as roofs, while storm water typically is ground-level runoff. Both require collecting, storing and conserving rain for later use.
