EcoClear – groundbreaking water treatment system nominated for innovation prize at CN Awards 2017June 2, 2017
Aquajet’s innovation, EcoClear, is nominated for one of the most prestigious and coveted awards in the construction industry. The sustainable water treatment system by the Swedish hydrodemolition specialist is competing in the category “Commercial Innovation of the Year” at the annual CN Awards 2017 in the UK.
The environment is the true winner
The EcoClear water treatment system is a state-of-the-art solution dedicated to filtering hydrodemolition water, through one compact unit. It enables the operator to safely discharge water back into the environment without the need of an extra water reservoir and without the use of filters of any kind, and without pollution. The system is poweredby Siltbuster Ltd, UK’s number one solutions provider for on site water treatment, wet waste processing and the prevention of waterborne pollution. EcoClear is nominated for best “Commercial Innovation of the Year” at the Construction News Awards 2017 in the UK, for being the first solution of it’s kind, with smart and high-level programming, eliminating the need for tankering wastewater offsite.
“It may sound like a cliché, but it’s truly an honor just to be nominated. Whoever wins the award in the end, the environment is the true winner. With EcoClear, Aquajet Systems and Siltbuster, have shown the world that treatment of hydrodemolition water can be effortless, efficient and environmentally friendly. There’s no system like it in the world. We’ll keep our fingers crossed to win in July”, says Roger Simonsson, CEO of Aquajet Systems.
Seamless and sustainable water treatment
EcoClear is designed to work perfectly with Aquajet’s range of hydrodemolition robots, and it’s capable of handling a flow rate up 20 cubic meters per hour. With EcoClear, the operator can neutralize elevated alkaline pH levels down to pH 6-9, while having full control of the turbidity level down to 20-25 mg particles/liter. EcoClear uses flocculation technology to remove the maximum amount of sludge from the water. The whole process is easily monitored online and with the RECO control system – a truly innovative and useful tool for the operator. It allows the operator to sit back and enjoy a streamlined water treatment process. The control system also ensures that all discharged water has the correct levels. In addition, all data are logged, and can easily be exported to external storage units, such as USB flash drives. Everything is displayed in real time in an intuitive graphic interface.
