RALEIGH, NC, Aug. 26, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- HydroFlo Inc. today announced that its subsidiary, HydroFlo Water Treatment, has received an order for two, 250-gpm aeration units from Valley Water Technology, which are to be installed at a food processing plant site in Washington state.
Valley Water had ordered and placed two units of the same size at the same facility near the end of 2002. The client had a problem with odors being generated during the use of their process water onto spray fields. While chemical controls had been attempted prior to the installation of the HydroFlo units, the results were inconsistent, inadequate and expensive. With the installation of the HydroFlo systems, the problem was corrected and the systems have been operating favorably for over two years. The units of the recent order will be used to treat the increased volume of wastewater at the plant.
"We are pleased to provide these units to Valley Water after such an early success from the installation of the first units. The HydroFlo systems have worked well with the recycled water, and we fully anticipate that the food processing industry in general can expect similar consistent and efficient treatment," said Tom Barbee, COO of HydroFlo Water Treatment Inc.
HydroFlo CEO, Dennis L. Mast, commented, "A second order such as this at a food processing plant, as well as the recent addition of the ConAgra family of food companies to the HydroFlo Water Treatment potential client base shows that our technology is well suited for this industry. We continue to pursue additional well-founded opportunities to build revenue in our subsidiary companies and increase the value of HydroFlo's investment portfolio."
