About Vortex Process Technology (VPT)
Nature has been purifying water and making it better for growing things for aeons. Rivers do it all the time with whirlpools - more technically known as vortices. Vortex Process Technology (VPT) has become a known, controllable science being delivered in a range of productive, profitable commercial applications by Watreco in partnership with MOSS.
In the same way that silicon chips power a range of computing devices, Watreco VPT products deliver a wide range of results depending on how and where they're used - in applications from fish farms to cooling towers to river recovery.
Key deliverables of VPT include:
1) Increased water and energy efficiency and
2) Improved water quality.
Two Watreco products are at the core of this next generation fluid processing technology - the Industrial Vortex Generator (IVG) and the FlowMix.
Industrial Vortex Generator (IVG)
Vortex Process Technology allows a fluid to self organize into an ordered vortex movement. Vortex movement is fundamental in nature. It occurs in galaxies, tornados, mountain streams and human blood flow. The unique biomimetic design of Watreco's vortex generators allows the harnessing of the extreme power of a tornado in industrial applications.
The Watreco IVG has no moving parts, continuously processes fluids and requires a minimum of maintenance.
The IVG has a wide range of industrial and commercial applications from cooling towers to agriculture and fire fighting. It is designed to produce a controlled vortex that:
- Decreases water viscosity, reducing the energy required to move it through pipes and hoses
- Increases electrical conductivity
- Increases heat transfer capacity
- Removes air bubbles and limescale
FlowMix aeration and mixing
The vortex technology inside FlowMix units is specifically designed to:
