Business Case - AquaTex™ AO is an advanced water purification (AWP) plant for reclaiming, treating, and disinfecting graywater and blackwater. The AO model can also recycle treated wastewater or channel it for beneficial reuse. Whether a resort or municipality, AquaTex™ AO accommodates any size water stream by the addition of specific components to extend its capacity. It is compact, rugged, versatile, automated and affordable.

Technology - AquaTex™ AO use a five-stage treatment process: prefiltration, nanofiltration, advanced oxidation, ultrafiltration, and ultraviolet chamber.

The reclamation process begins by first collecting the wastestream and passing it through a 10-micron vibrating shaker screen and then through 5-micron tubular backwash filters for loose particle separation. The number of additional backwash filters is dependent on the size and content of the wastestream. The filtrate then flows through an advanced proprietary oxidation reactor and then through a ceramic ultrafiltration membrane to reduce particles to less than a 0.01 micron level. The final stage is complete disinfection in an ultraviolet chamber. Treated wastewater may then be discharged, recycled or reused.

The WateReuse Association defines reused, recycled or reclaimed water as water that is used more than one time before it passes back into natural water cycles such as irrigation, industrial processes, toilet flushing, and replenishing groundwater basins.

Benefits - Benefits derived from an AquaTex™ AO are numerous:

  • Versatileadvanced water purification plant
  • Rugged modular skid-mounted stainless steel construction
  • Fully automated with user-friendly color interface
  • High-quality effluent for recycling or beneficial reuse
  • Low operations and maintenance costs and
