MIAMI, FL, July 8, 2009 -- Centriforce Technology Corp. announced today that it has filed the patent application for its new desalination technology. The Patent covers the unique processes used by CNFO to desalinate seawater and brackish water into fresh water using its single vessel multistage flashing technology.
The CNFO patent covers a method of creating fresh water from salt water (or other impure water source) in a single vessel under a balanced vacuum. The system uses custom eductors to inject raw water into a triple layered vacuum and to remove exhaust air from the end stream in order to maintain vacuum. The system is less complex mechanically than the reverse osmosis systems widely used in large installations worldwide. Even more importantly, it operates at less than one-half the average energy consumption of competing systems.
By reducing capital cost and reducing the energy footprint, the Company expects to rapidly see this new technology adopted for large-scale desalination applications. The company expects to build water plants in areas where water shortages occur and sell the water to municipalities, states or governments where it is needed on a long-term contract basis.
"Filing our first Patent on this new technology is an important step toward protecting the high value of what we have developed over the last several months," noted Matthew Schulman, President. "In addition to taking this technology to market now that it is finished, we will continue to operate our R&D department in order to stay ahead of competitors in this industry," he concluded.
