How to Decrease Your Water Treatment Costs, While Increasing Water & Energy Recovery

Without the RIGHT tools, achieving your water treatment goals can be like swimming upstream…

The growing concern for many organizations is lowering operating expenses while still achieving their water treatment objectives. A 2013 survey conducted by the American Water Works Association (AWWA), with the help of water professionals across the industry, discovered the following main threats to water filtration processes.

  • A corroding water/wastewater infrastructure
  • Water scarcity & drought
  • Recovering the full cost of your investment
  • Changes in regulations & liability
  • Lack of available funding/budgets

What’s in it for you?

As a water professional, you know how important clean water is for the various facets of your organization. Here are some key takeaways that will help in resolving today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.

  • How to assess and acknowledge your water filtration requirements

Vortisand® - Trusted by Industry Leaders

"Over the last 6 months, I have to say that this was the best investment on a filter system that we could make. It has cut down on not just particulate, but it has also cut down on man hours on the maintenance. We no longer have to clean bag filters and our new system keeps the basins a lot cleaner than ever before" - Plant Operating Engineer / LAX Airport

"With the Vortisand® system no adjustments are needed to compensate for an increase or decrease in gallon quantity used. Vortisand® gives you .45 micron nominal filtration as well, which provides very clean water and cuts way back on the need to replace disposable filters downstream. The system also requires little or nothing in the way of operator involvement thanks to its automatic backwash system." - Kimberly-Clark

"The tubular exchangers are no longer clogged the way they were before, the condenser bundles are cleaner and heat exchange is better. We have realized savings on electricity and improved our energy efficiency." - Director of Operations / Lesieur Cristal

"The return on investment of the Vortisand® filters was estimated at about six months. The management is thinking of installing another Vortisand® filter on the second production line." - Production Manager / Lesieur Cristal
