Culligan expanding mobile treatment business

Culligan Matrix Solutions, Culligan International’s commercial and industrial division, is expanding its mobile treatment solutions for brackish, surface and sea water in response to increasing demand for this service.

Culligan’s systems use varying technologies depending on the customer’s feedwater conditions, desired application and final product water quality requirements. Pretreatment including clarification, multi-media filtration, carbon filtration and softening, is used to prepare feed water for further use.

In some cases, antiscalants and chemicals may be used to address specific feedwater conditions and operational circumstances.

The standard mobile offering includes reverse osmosis, which provides an advanced level of filtration and is an effective barrier to salts, micro-contaminants and organic substances, making it ideal for applications where high-purity water is needed. The company also offers deionization solutions, which help reduce total dissolved solids from water and produce high quality multi-megaohm water for specialized applications.

Culligan’s mobile units are available as containers that can be dropped off at the customer site as well as skid-mounted systems. A standard container produces 200 GPM (12.6 L/s), and the capacity is scalable to meet the customer’s needs.

Culligan’s mobile water treatment fleet provides comprehensive multi-level water purification, monitoring and control in a single solution for peaking plants and base-loaded plants in the energy and power, oil and gas, and chemical processing industries. The modular system is designed to accommodate a wide variety of feed sources and can be operated in a rugged environment.

“We are expanding our mobile water treatment business due to growing demand for our temporary water treatment solutions, which offer great flexibility and cost effectiveness,” said Allan Connolly, chief operating officer for Culligan. “Customers are looking for an easily transportable compact technology.”

“Mobile plants fulfill a variety of needs and address a myriad of situations such as peak demand, capacity expansion, equipment breakdown, emergency rentals, plant commissioning, and wastewater minimization – any circumstance where production demand for clean water exceeds existing system capacity,” he added.
