Ian Montgomerie, CEO of Barr + Wray Group, said, "We see huge potential in the collaboration with LiqTech in the years to come.

The Aqua Solution is a LiqTech ceramic filter solution for liquids with suspended solids. LiqTech's Aqua Solution integrates a dead-end structural design with membrane technology that is specifically designed for water pre-treatment in reverse osmosis applications, wastewater treatment, and swimming pool and spa water filtration.
LiqTech says that the dead-end design yields more cost-efficient filtration performance compared to other filtration options. Moreover, LiqTech claims that its Aqua Solution reduces the number of membrane elements, pressure vessels, water consumption for backwash, and energy costs by providing high flow rates at very low pressure.
