Dow Water & Process Solutions (DW&PS), a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, has introduced the Tequatic Plus fine particle filter to the China and European market in October and November respectively, one year after its launch in North America. Since then, the company says it has gained momentum in many applications for difficult, high-solids water, including industrial wastewater treatment and reuse, and is supported by a recently opened manufacturing facility in Menlo Park, CA.
“Customers around the globe have a growing need to protect important water resources with a cost-effective, high-performance solution,” says Cedella Beazley, business unit director, Filtration, DW&PS. “The Tequatic Plus filter can help customers improve the efficiency of their operations while also reducing their environmental footprint through, for example, less waste, high water recovery and high uptime.”
With its patented and award-winning design, the Tequatic Plus filter combines the power of continuously cleaning, cross-flow filtration with centrifugal separation and solids collection into one device to meet the demands of extreme water environments. It is unique to the tough water space, reliably handling very high and highly variable total suspended solids up to 10,000 mg/L without frequent filter changes – even in the presence of oil. The company says these and other features enable it to overcome the shortcomings of conventional technologies such as bag and cartridge filters.
