Parkson opens new Florida research facility

US water and wastewater treatment specialist Parkson Corporation announced on 28 April 2009 the opening of the Parkson Water Research Facility in Pompano Beach, Florida, near its HQ in Fort Lauderdale.

This new facility provides for the piloting of water and wastewater technologies and includes an on-site laboratory, which is designed to speed the evaluation of process effectiveness. The on-site laboratory also supports product design and development activities, as well as management of necessary maintenance for installed pilot units.

The primary objective of the new Parkson WRF is to facilitate water related research and to accelerate the development of new water and wastewater technologies. In addition, the facility will investigate and enhance value-engineering improvements to existing Parkson products on an ongoing basis.

Several pilots of Parkson products are installed at the facility and provide a hands-on training platform for both internal and external clients. The facility is especially useful as a small-scale operational training facility for new users with specific product training needs.
