Clean TeQ Water’s continuous ion exchange technology has been specifically adapted for water treatment applications. It originates from the former Soviet Union where around 40 plants for metal recovery installed by third parties are still in operation. Clean TeQ Water holds over 10 patents to protect advancements in the technology and has extensive knowledge of plant design and operation.
The continuous counter-current approach brings ion exchange to a range of industries where it traditionally isn’t used. It has a range of advantages over conventional fixed bed ion exchange systems, including:
- Optimised contaminant removal and use of the ion exchange resin’s loading capacity
- Higher tolerance to suspended solids and feed variations
- Lower chemical use and less waste
- Production of highly concentrated product or waste streams
Encapsulated Bacteria Lenses
Our encapsulated bacteria technology uses lens shaped PVA encapsulation to provide intensified ammonia and nitrate removal processes. Water and dissolved impurities diffuse through the lenses and come in contact with the bacteria, causing targeted reactions to occur. The high surface area to volume ratio of the lens shape allows higher diffusion rates to be achieved.
BIOCLENS lenses are a game changer for bacterial water treatment, providing:
- Ability to consistently reach extremely low ammonia and nitrate levels
- Smaller site footprints
- High activity rates in difficult conditions
- Low temperature
- Saline solutions
- High feed concentrations
- Low energy demand and lifecycle cost
Clean TeQ Water provides tailored solutions that directly meet the needs of our customers.
In the water treatment sector, no two projects are the same. All water influent quality is different, regulatory standards are local, and climate conditions vary. This means water projects often require customisation to ensure robust results are achieved at lower capital and operating costs. This is certainly the case with hard to treat industrial wastewater, mine processing water, and often even for water re-use projects with strict regulations for brine and sludge disposal.
We provide solutions that best meet the customer’s requirements based on a deep understanding from over 25 years of experience in the water treatment market. We ensure that our solutions are:
- Designed using technologies best suited to the project
- Sized for the required flowrate, minimising capital and operating costs
- Compliant to local regulations
- Robust and reliable
We have a team of 30 dedicated engineers and ensure we are always available to support the customer at every stage of the project and upon its completion. We believe the only real foundation for successful and sustainable growth are successful projects and satisfied customers.
Selective Contaminant Removal
Our water treatment technologies aim to selectively remove contaminants from waste streams when possible, separating and concentrating pollutants into a different stream.
Traditional membrane technologies are often used as the default water treatment method without an in depth project assessment. Filtering all contaminants from difficult to treat waste streams can lead to scaling and fouling issues, often generating large volumes of waste which is difficult to manage.
Selectively removing contaminants allows:
- Lower capital and operating costs
- Higher water recovery and less waste
- Potential value in contaminant recovery
- Recycling of processing streams
By selectively removing contaminants such as calcium and sulphate from processing streams they can be reused, minimising waste and chemical consumption.
