Perfector-E compact water treatment system.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, Jan. 25, 2010 -- Norit X-Flow in partnership with PWN is supplying seven Perfector-E compact water treatment systems, capable of producing a total of nearly 90,000 gallons of reliable drinking water per day, to the residents of Haiti. Each Perfector-E unit has its own unique filtration system utilizing a combination of Norit X-Flow ultrafiltration (UF) membranes and UV light sterilization. PWN is a water company located in the northern part of The Netherlands and is a worldwide trendsetter in new water treatment technologies. Norit X-Flow, part of the Norit Group, is headquartered in The Netherlands with its North American sales office located outside of Chicago. Norit X-Flow is a world leader in the supply of membrane UF that is used in many municipal water treatment plants throughout the United States and around the world.

Perfector-E compact water treatment system.
Each Perfector-E unit is a plug-and-play system powered by a generator. Using the equipped submersible pump, water is taken from the source and is fed directly into the Perfector-E unit. A pre-filter strainer removes larger particles from the feed water. From there the water is filtered through Norit X-Flow's proven UF membranes, which remove suspended solids including viruses and bacteria. The UV light acts as a secondary barrier to protect against contaminants.

PWN and Norit X-Flow originally developed and deployed the Perfector-E immediately after the 2004 tsunami tragedy in Asia. The Perfector-E is a self-contained, easy to use, portable water treatment plant that addresses the needs of people who have no other source for reliable drinking water.

Six PWN engineers, who were extensively trained by Norit, are accompanying the units to assure that they will run properly and assist with the dispensing of water to the Haiti victims.
