Siemens Water Technologies hits streets with industry's largest mobile water filtration system

Sponsored by

WARRENDALE, PA, Aug. 24, 2006 -- The Horizontal Filtration Trailer, or HFT, is a unique, high-capacity trailer-mounted system designed to provide temporary water treatment in a variety of industrial and municipal applications.

With a total surface area of 242 square feet, the HFT has the highest capacity flow rate of any single trailer on the market today. It provides high-quality effluent at flow rates of up to 1,600 gallons per minute (GPM) for general filtration. For pre-treating reverse osmosis feedwater, the HFT can produce flows up to 1,200 GPM. The system can be loaded with filter media, carbon, or specialized resin, depending on the application and the customer's specific requirements.

These units complement an existing fleet of mobile clarification systems and allow the unique ability to clarify and filter 1.0 to 1.5 million gallons per day of surface water for industries or municipalities.

The HFT can be used for applications where high-flow reverse osmosis systems require pretreatment to prevent membrane fouling, reduced membrane life and inconsistent flow or water quality. Opportunities can be found routinely in the power, refining, chemical production, pulp and paper and primary metals industries.

Siemens Water Technologies provides mobile systems and reliable service for: temporary, emergency or long-term water treatment; pilot plant operations on various water streams; treatment for seasonal peaks or scheduled maintenance; pre-treatment and deionization without on-site regeneration; and on-site services including operations. Mobile clarification, filtration, pretreatment, reverse osmosis and demineralization are all part of Siemens Water Technologies' overall mobile and on-site service capabilities.
