  • Award highlights the TEQUATIC PLUS F-50 filter as an innovative product with great potential to increase use of composites in new and existing markets.
  • Sponsored by Awards for Composites Excellence (ACE) program and showcased at COMPOSITES 2013 Exhibition and Convention.
  • TEQUATIC PLUS filter is an ideal filtration solution for a variety of industries facing difficult-to-treat feedwater challenges.

The TEQUATIC™ PLUS F-50 fine particle filter from Dow Water & Process Solutions (DW&PS), a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:DOW), is a winner of the Infinite Possibility for Market Growth Award by the Awards for Composites Excellence (ACE) program.

The award was presented to Ershigs, Inc., a key supplier, for creating a composites product that demonstrates the potential to notably increase the use of composites in existing or developing markets, while also exemplifying innovation, creativity and commercialization. Ershigs worked closely with Clean Filtration Technologies LLC ("CFT"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Dow, to produce the housing for the TEQUATIC PLUS filter. 

"The composite material design and production is key to the success of the TEQUATIC PLUS filter, and we are elated that Ershig's submission was successful and that our product received this award," said Cedella Beazley, CFT general manager. "The award reflects a deep commitment and collaboration between Dow Water & Process Solutions and suppliers to continuously innovate and provide leading filtration solutions to customers."

The TEQUATIC PLUS filter is a breakthrough, patented technology that combines the power of continuous cleaning, cross-flow filtration with centrifugal separation and solids collection into one device.  It is designed to handle a wide range of difficult-to-treat feedwaters much more cost-effectively and consistently than traditional technologies - in part due to its housing.  

The TEQUATIC PLUS filter housing features fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites and a light resin transfer molding (RTM) process. This technology is ideal for the high-volume production of products having complex geometries and requiring high strength, tight tolerances and light weight. These and other features enable the TEQUATIC PLUS filter to be produced cost effectively and to operate in a broader range of corrosive environments and applications compared to metal alloys.

Applications range from produced water for oil and gas, municipal wastewater treatment and reuse, to desalination, power and industrial.  Across applications, the TEQUATIC PLUS filter has the flexibility to treat very high and highly variable total suspended solids, functioning as a primary filter, a prefilter for ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO), or as post filter following water reuse technologies like moving bed bioreactor (MBBR).

According to John Patrin, CFT strategic marketing manager, "The TEQUATIC PLUS filter continues to prove its value in field trials and installations, enabling customers to reduce their filtration costs by minimizing maintenance and consumables while maximizing uptime" he said.  "This award further establishes the TEQUATIC PLUS filter as a leader in driving market growth through the use of composite technology." 

The ACE program is organized in conjunction with the COMPOSITES 2013 Exhibition and Convention. All ACE entrants are featured on the exhibit hall floor in an awards showcase that highlights the market potential and creative possibilities of innovative composites products. COMPOSITES 2013 focuses on the business of composites, applications and innovations, new ideas, solutions and industry trends.
