WEFTEC Report: PowerTech Water Offers Heavy Metal Removal System

PowerTech Water recently introduced the Capacitive Coagulation (CapCo) System in the Innovation Pavilion at WEFTEC in Chicago. The company calls it an advanced solution for removing metals from water streams.

The CapCo technology is an electrochemical filter that uses activated carbon electrodes and small amounts of electricity to attract, immobilize and filter metals with 99% selectivity and no sludge production for 100% water recovery.

It is energy efficient, high-temperature tolerant (up to 176 degrees F), and acid and alkali tolerant. The energy requirement of the system is less than 0.1 kWh/m3. No chemicals are required and the system uses no membranes.

The technology delivers up to 90% reduction in capital and operating expense with its low energy usage, easy setup and maintenance, and a small footprint that facilitates retrofits. Automated operation and trackable filter life enable ease of operation. Visit www.powertechwater.com.
