TX city recovering millions of gallons at treatment plant with advanced RO system
OriginClear has announced that a system built by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Dallas-based Progressive Water Treatment, is recovering 700 gallons per minute of previously-rejected water at the existing reverse osmosis treatment plant in Horizon City, Texas.
LOS ANGELES, CA, and DALLAS, TEXAS, Oct. 22, 2015 -- OriginClear Inc., a provider of water treatment solutions, has announced that a system built by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Dallas-based Progressive Water Treatment Inc. (PWT), is recovering 700 gallons per minute (GPM) of previously-rejected water at the existing reverse osmosis (RO) treatment plant in Horizon City, Texas.
The recovered water is being blended with raw well water for consumption as city drinking water. PWT fabricated and installed dual 350-GPM RO systems to recover rejectwater from existing, primary RO systems. According to Marc Stevens, PWT President, the new systems have operated at more than 99-percent efficiency since their commissioning.
"Horizon City is now able to use this water as a source for drinking water. That's over a million gallons per day that the city doesn't have to treat, which could serve up to a third of its population's needs," said Stevens. "This is certainly not our largest project to date, but from a technical point of view, it's one of the most satisfying. It challenged our engineering staff who were able to reclaim 700 GPM of water for direct reuse by the city as drinking water."
Dallas-based PWT is the first company in the newly-formed OriginClear Group™ of water-service companies and is a profitable and fast-growing designer, builder and service provider for a wide range of industrial water treatment applications (see: "OriginClear acquires Progressive Water Treatment for preferred stock").
"As corporations increasingly outsource their water treatment, companies like PWT are stepping in to serve them," said Riggs Eckelberry, OriginClear Chief Executive Officer. "We intend to help unify these outsourced water services companies for the benefit of outsourcing customers across North America and eventually, the world."
