Veolia Water Technologies is exhibiting at the Power-Gen Asia 2017 to showcase two of its proven technologies for the power industry, as well as create greater awareness about the benefits that its Actiflo® clarifier and Hydrotech™ microscreen filters can offer to industry players. From the 19th to the 21st of September 2017 at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC), Veolia will reaffirm their commitment to simplify water and wastewater challenges for the power industry in the Southeast Asian (SEA) region.

“Undoubtedly, power companies need to conserve fresh water by either using reclaimed water, sewage effluent, cycling cooling towers more often, or by re-using wastewater,” Bill Willersdorf, Global Market Director, Power, Veolia Water Technologies, shared. “It can also be difficult to navigate stringent environmental regulations. Wastewater challenges in the industry can be complex, and if discharge is not carefully managed, aquatic life and environmental balance will be impacted negatively. However, appropriate solutions are available for water management in the power industry. The Veolia Actiflo® and Hydrotech™ discfilter products have been winning technologies for our existing power customers, so we hope to have engaging conversations and meetings about these solutions with more companies at the show.”

Both advanced technologies have been well received by the power industry.

Actiflo®, a high rate clarifier exclusively developed and patented by Veolia, comes with more than a thousand global references. Known for its performance in the pre-treatment of makeup water, cold lime softening, and side stream treatment, the clarifier is an ideal solution for recycling process water and pre-treating boiler feed or water within a power plant cooling tower. Compared to conventional clarifiers, Actiflo® has a small footprint resulting in competitive installed costs, and can be used for process water production, wastewater treatment, reuse and recycling, as well as storm water run-off treatment.

In addition, Veolia is also showcasing two filters under the Hydrotech™ range – the Hydrotech™  Discfilter and the Hydrotech™  Drumfilter. Manufactured in Sweden, Hydrotech’s unique filter panels feature unparalleled quality and durability. A small footprint, as well as other technical features of the solution, brings about cost-competitive installations.

Hydrotech™ Discfilters are mechanical and self-cleaning filters that offer a large filter area in a small footprint. Equipped with self-cleaning nozzles, the Discfilter eliminates the need for a backwash strainer. The easy to operate and maintain system also features flexibility in construction materials, and enables water and energy savings. The Discfilter is available in several series to cater to a variety of flow requirements.

Hydrotech™ Drumfilters, on the other hand, are specially designed for high performance in systems where preventing particles from fragmentation is essential. The unit features a modular design, enabling easy maintenance and the ability to meet the actual flow capacity and performance requirements of filtration.
