Sustainable Water Management

for the Power Industry


ACTIFLO
The ACTIFLO process is an ideal solution for recycling valuable process water
and providing pretreatment for boiler feed, product water and cooling tower
make-up water to the power industry. ACTIFLO has also proven to be very ecient for treatment of
cooling tower blowdown and wastewater applications such as pond level reduction or elimination,
including algae removal.
ACTIFLO/MULTIFLO
TM
Softening is a technological breakthrough in water treatment, oering some
unique advantages over traditional clarication systems with the chemical precipitation of hardness,
alkalinity, silica and other constituents (e.g., heavy metals).
Demineralization units
Systems utilize ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, electro-deionization, and/or ion exchange
May include UV TOC destruction and membrane degas
Achieve ppb levels of TOC, ppt levels of metals, and > 18 megaohms
Disclters
The sturdy and compact California Title 22 approved Disclter is a great choice for:
Applications requiring space and backwash savings with large ows and
ne lter openings down to 10 microns
Clarication polishing (or primary and secondary clarication polishing)
Cooling tower make-up and sidestream ltration
Process water ltration
Evaporation & Crystallization
Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) systems
Volume reduction, reuse/recycling of water
Systems for fossil fuels as well as nuclear power
OPUS Technology
High water recovery and low waste volume
RO-based system with effective scaling and fouling control
Available with CeraMem or MULTIFLO pretreatment options
Achieves Zero Liquid Discharge with the addition of a brine crystallizer
Multiple Eect Distillation (MED)
World leader in thermal desalination
Condensate Polishing
State-of-the-art technology
