German water-polishing licence granted to Aquatech

Aquatech International Corporation of the USA has finalized a cooperation agreement with WasserBauGesellschaft Kulmbach GmbH (WBG), a leading water technology company based in Germany, to hold the exclusive North American license for WBG’s RSR Plus® Condensate Polishing Technology.

Aquatech describes the technology as the most advanced condensate polishing technology currently available, which will expand its range of offerings to customers in the power generation, semiconductor, electronics and chemical industries.

RSR Plus is an optimized process for the transport, separation and external regeneration of ion-exchange resins. RSR Plus is applied when regeneration of resins in the filter vessel is not possible or not desired.

This technology is primarily used for high-pressure condensate-polishing systems for turbine condensate in power plants, but external regeneration of ion-exchange resins is applied as well in the semiconductor, electronics and chemical industries. WBG has an impressive reference list with this technology.

Excellent quality of treated water can be achieved due to the special and highly effective separation process with low cross-contamination. In addition to achieving high purity of treated water, the technology offers significant CAPEX and OPEX advantages, says Aquatech.

Benefits include reduced resin recycling and regeneration, low water-demand for resin transportation, reduction of components in contact with regeneration chemicals, excellent removal of entrapped solids and fines, very low resin-loss, high degree of automation, and low maintenance requirements.

“Aquatech is very pleased to announce this alliance. We are committed to continuously bring to our customers the latest technology-based, value-added processes and services. Our strategic alliance with WBG firmly positions Aquatech as a total solution provider to the power industry and enhances our portfolio by offering the most advanced condensate polishing technology available today,” said Devesh Mittal, head of industrial solutions – North America for Aquatech.

Wolfgang Neubrand, managing director of WBG International, said, “We are excited about this cooperation. With Aquatech, we are aligned with the market leader in the power sector in North America and a recognized global leader in water purification technology.”
