Gainesville, Georgia (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
MyCelx Technologies Corporation and Siemens Water Technologies are pleased to announce an exclusive distributorship and service agreement to enhance oil removal technology in Saudi Arabia.
Siemens will use its sales and service organization in Saudi Arabia to distribute and support the MyCelx product line, which includes proprietary advanced coalescer and oil removal technology, as well as proprietary filtration media. The MyCelx technologies complement Siemens' water treatment technologies, acting as a polisher for API and CPI separators, hydrocyclones, flotation cells, and multi-media filters, or as pre-treatment for Siemens' broad array of membrane separation technologies. The proprietary MyCelx technology also makes it possible to achieve stringent offshore discharge limits as well as treat oily wastewater by making it suitable for feed to a reverse osmosis system.
MyCelx technology and filter media captures and removes hydrocarbons from air and water in as little as a single pass, and delivers efficiency in a very small footprint -- usually 1/10th the footprint of competing polishing technologies. MyCelx filtration media are highly sustainable because they only activate in the presence of oil. The filters are not consumed in the absence of pollution and retain their filtration ability without water logging. The filters also produce very little differential pressure to saturation, reducing energy consumption and the carbon footprint of environments in which they are used.
In Saudi Arabia, usable water is a scarce and expensive commodity. The MyCelx technology makes it possible to economically recycle large volumes of water used in the petrochemical and oil and gas industries.
Siemens Water Technologies, a member of the $8.415 B EUR Siemens Industry Solutions Division, is active in Saudi Arabia, providing operating and maintenance services to industrial customers nationwide. The local Siemens service business, headquartered in Dammam, will maintain an inventory of MyCelx equipment and consumables, available for immediate delivery to Saudi customers. Local support will be provided by Siemens Water Technologies technicians for installation and maintenance of MyCelx systems. Siemens will use its sales and service organization in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia, to distribute and support the MyCelx technology.
