Lethbridge, Canada, May 27, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Water Shield Inc., an Alberta provider of water treatment and processing solutions, announced today the addition of Sonitec's Vortisand Sand Filtration Systems to their water treatment product lines.
As part of the company's focus on providing the best and most efficient equipment available, the new line easily meets these criteria. Used world wide in applications ranging from cooling water, chilled and hot water loops, spray nozzle protection, pre-RO and pre-DI, water reuse, rainwater polishing and others, these systems are in use by an impressive list of Fortune 500 companies, as well as numerous local companies and organizations.
The filtration systems utilize media filtration technology that removes suspended solids down to 0.45 microns. Because the systems are designed as modular units, they can easily be configured to handle any flow rate or application. The unique and compact design utilizes vortex stabilization to maintain high surface turbulence above the media bed leading to minimal use of backwash water, reduced operating costs and reduced downtime costs over alternate methods. Models are available for both side stream and full flow applications with filtration efficiencies of up to 99% and a very small footprint.
Water Shield President Garnet Bailey said, "We are very excited to bring these filters to Alberta. The ability to efficiently filter to 0.45 microns and at the same time keep pressure drops low will help solve many treatment issues that were previously very difficult." He added, "And, at the same time, these systems are much less expensive to operate, delivering up to five times the flow of conventional media filters."
Vortisand equipment is manufactured in Canada by Sonitec, member of both the Canada Green Building Council and the U.S. Green Building Council, and is GreenSpec listed. Sonitec has been manufacturing innovative water treatment technologies for over 25 years.
