The Dow Chemical Company
) Dow Water & Process Solutions unit has announced the global
launch of the TEQUATIC PLUS fine particle filter. This
cost-effective, high-performance solution will protect important
water resources. The TEQUATIC PLUS was made available in the
Chinese and European markets in October and November,
respectively, after a year of its launch in North America.
TEQUATIC PLUS has been used in many applications for difficult,
high-solids water, including industrial wastewater treatment and
reuse in North America. This low-cost solution for treating
difficult water is supported by a recently opened manufacturing
facility in Menlo Park, CA.
The patented TEQUATIC PLUS filter combines the power of
continuous cleaning, cross-flow filtration with centrifugal
separation and solids collection into a single device to meet the
demands of extreme water environments. It is specifically
targeted for the non-potable water applications, functioning as a
prime filter, a pre-filter or a post-filter based on the
It can be utilized in tough water spaces and is reliable for
handling very high and highly variable total suspended solids up
to 10,000 mg/L without frequent filter changes - even in the
presence of oil. Moreover, the TEQUATIC PLUS filter can boost
operations and also reduce environmental footprint by producing
less waste, high water recovery and high uptime.
As TEQUATIC PLUS filter removes high level of solids, it helps
the customers to increase the flow rate through the dissolved air
flotation unit, thus lessening the need to invest in capital for
higher throughput rates. All these attributes of TEQUATIC PLUS
filter makes it preferable to other conventional technologies
such as bag and cartridge filters.
TEQUATIC PLUS filter is marketed by Clean Filtration Technologies
LLC through Dow Water & Process Solutions.
