Desalitech, a provider of high efficiency water treatment, is helping businesses, farmers and municipalities squeeze more out of diminishing water supplies while reducing liquid waste production and being an industry leader with a maximum water recovery guarantee on all its products.
Recovery is an industry term for the amount of water produced when treating salt water or brackish water with reverse osmosis. While most reverse osmosis systems offer 75 percent recovery, Desalitech's products offer up to 98 percent recovery, the company recently announced.
With increased investment for Desalitech and contracts with some Fortune 500 companies, it is expanding its global footprint of projects around the world.
"Increased water scarcity poses one of the most serious global challenges of our time; yet many solutions fall short with excess water waste, high energy consumption and not enough flexibility," said Desalitech Executive Vice President Richard L. Stover, Ph.D. "Desalitech is leading the way by providing alternative solutions that guarantee more water and reduced energy consumption and waste. What used to be wastewater is now a new source of water supply. We have the results to show for it."
Desalitech's industrial reverse osmosis systems are helping clients cope with drought and water shortages in California and across the globe. The company claims its ReFlex reverse osmosis systems lead the industry by other critical metrics, including reducing water waste by up to 75 percent and energy consumption by 35 percent. The distinctive configuration of these products similarly allows for unmatched reliability and flexibility - solving a problem that plagues traditional reverse osmosis systems.
With industry responsible for nearly 60 percent of all freshwater withdrawals in the U.S. and other developed countries and with increased frequency of water shortage crises globally, efficient industrial water treatment and wastewater reuse is essential. By replacing a 900 gallon per minute traditional reverse osmosis system with ReFlex reverse osmosis system, over 130 million gallons, enough for over 375,000 people, can be saved every year, translating to an annual savings of over $1.5 million of water, wastewater and energy costs.
