ROSEMONT, Ill., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Culligan Matrix Solutions, a division of Culligan International Company focused on water treatment for commercial and industrial markets, is expanding its mobile water treatment solutions business in response to increasing demand for this service.
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 (i.e., brackish water, surface water, and seawater). It can be operated in a rugged environment and can be installed quickly to seamlessly provide large quantities of water on demand.
Mobile water treatment systems are ideal for fast response, emergency situations, supplemental, or temporary requirements. They are often used to assist industrial customers during plant start up and maintenance outages when the plant's water treatment system is unavailable or cannot meet the water production requirements.
Culligan's mobile solutions offer a highly flexible approach that helps customers improve overall efficiency, minimize capital investment costs, and reduce energy costs and energy consumption with a system designed to meet their specific requirements. This flexibility also extends to a variety of financial options with sales, rental, leasing, and ongoing maintenance programs for faster return on investment.
"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, 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 noted.
Culligan's systems are built on a modular platform, which allows for flexibility and timeliness in meeting customers' needs. "Our approach is based on our ability to draw from our matrix of water treatment solutions, enabling us to quickly modify our standard products to provide a custom-engineered system for a specific client," he added.
Culligan's systems utilize varying technologies depending on the customer's feed water conditions, desired application and final product water quality requirements. Pre-treatment including clarification, multi-media filtration, carbon filtration and softening is used to prepare feed water for further use. In some cases, anti-scalants and chemicals may be used to address specific feed water 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 (TDS) from water and produce high quality multi-mega ohm 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, and the capacity is scalable to meet the customer's needs.
Culligan's recently awarded contract with a major chemical company is an example of how a mobile solution achieved multiple customer goals.
This project commenced with installation of a single Culligan mobile system at a plant that produces specialty chemicals used in the electronics industry. Over the course of several months, the system was evaluated to determine its efficacy in producing higher quality feed water for use in its products. Culligan provided a short term, temporary mobile system that could be transitioned into a permanent approach.
"The trial proved to be very successful, and the system helped meet product specification requirements. The high quality water produced also helped boost productivity, reduce labor requirements and minimize waste. As a result, the customer has awarded us a long term mobile contract and is also considering other applications at its plant where higher quality water could provide an additional benefit," said Connolly.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
