Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) April 11, 2012
Parkson Corporation, a leading provider of advanced solutions in water and wastewater treatment, has introduced a newly redesigned Aqua Guard®. The new screen, called Aqua Guard® UltraClean™, shows a capture rate improvement of over 50%. Operators applaud the new features of the screen as being easier to operate and maintain, and requiring less work.
The new system is the result of an extensive research and development effort undertaken on the Aqua Guard®, one of Parkson’s most popular and longest-running product lines.
“Our research focused on improving the performance of the Aqua Guard® screen and reducing maintenance of the brush,” said Dave Mitchell, commercial director of Parkson’s Headworks/Screens Center of Excellence. “A cleaner screen enables the entire plant to operate more efficiently.”
The new features will be included on all new Aqua Guard® UltraClean™ installations and will be available as modifications to existing screen systems, through a relatively simple replacement operation.
“The Aqua Guard® is a successful and reliable screening platform at thousands of wastewater treatment plants,” said Jesus Rodriguez, Aqua Guard® product manager. “So we wanted to build on that track record, and find ways to make a good product even better.”
In a real-world test, Parkson engineers installed the new equipment on one Aqua Guard® screen, operating alongside a unit using the previous configuration at a working treatment plant. The side-by-side comparison revealed that the new equipment significantly improved capture rate efficiency and was easier to maintain than the original design.
“It’s a tremendous improvement,” said John Tremblay of Kershner Environmental Technologies, after seeing the new unit in operation. “The new design should reduce maintenance time, and that is a big advantage for operators.”
