The project involves treating a site groundwater source for high pressure boiler feed make-up. The primary processes that will be used to treat the ground water are ultrafiltration (UF), reverse osmosis (RO) and electrodeionisation (EDI), all sourced from Dow Chemical.

“We believe this contract, and numerous others like it, validates OriginClear’s decision to acquire Progressive Water Treatment,” said Bill Charneski, president of the OriginClear Group. “Our strategy, to build a group of water treatment service companies that serve all water-intensive industries and regions, is well underway. We intend to complete our second water services acquisition this year and we are in discussion with several other companies.”

Dow Chemical’s senior account manager Tom McCandless said: “Dow and Progressive Water Treatment have partnered to develop several treatment systems over the past 12 years. PWT was the first original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in North America to design and build a system using 100% Dow UF, RO and EDI products. We’re addressing industry standards for better quality and reliability and we’re looking forward to serve as the supplier on this new contract.”
