MERSEYSIDE, UK, April 3, 2008 -- Merseyside based Industrial Purification Systems (IPS), a specialist in water filtration self cleaning technology, has secured a contract worth £300,000 for the delivery of high efficiency media filtration systems destined for the Middle East.

The contract has been awarded for the re-processing of caustic incinerator effluent being produced by one of the country's major Ethylene Plants, to allow the Plant to discharge the cleaned water back into the sea.

Strict worldwide environmental compliance dictates exacting discharge standards. IPS has been able to meet these standards through superior media filtration technology that reliably filters down to the smallest of particulates, these being below 1.0 micron, which until now has never been achieved. The Middle Eastern Plant will be using a combined technology of coagulation and flocculation mechanical filtration with the high efficiency media filtration as a polishing filter.

Steve Cupples, managing director of IPS said: "This contract very much highlights the need for highly effective world-wide water and contamination control.

"We can now provide technology that goes a long way towards an environmental solution and the impact that this technology will have on the re-use of process water or the use of alternative water sources such as borehole, rainwater harvesting or municipal waste water will be huge."

IPS has over 25 years experience in the water filtration business. Its expertise is utilised to eradicate problems in the drinking water and process industries, helping companies to find solutions to some of the most complex production process requirements. Its systems are used in a variety of industries, ranging from food and chemicals processing and manufacturing, to the painting of motor vehicle bodies.

Merseyside-based Industrial Purification Systems specialises in the provision of filtration system solutions for industrial processes.
