Objective

Satisfy stringent chlor-alkali water purity standards while lowering client’s operating cost, increasing their water quality, and decreasing the system footprint.

Scope of Service

The client worked with SAMCO to develop an effective solution that comprised detailed design, manufacturing, startup, commission, and ongoing technical support.

Challenges

  • Stringent industry regulations
  • Fast-track project, concept to completion
  • Strict project budget
  • Minimal operator availability

Solution

To bring the client into compliance with stringent chlor-alkali industry regulations, and deliver yields up to 99%, SAMCO engineered an innovative deionization solution with Advanced AMBERPACK™ technology. Developed in collaboration with The Dow Chemical Company (formerly Rohm and Haas), Advanced AMBERPACK™ is a revolutionary pre-engineered ion exchange system that combines the full capability of amberjet resins, and Amalgamated Research Inc.’s innovative patented fractal technology for the highest quality water while minimizing cost, space, and waste. Coupled with SAMCO’s proprietary backwash tube filter technology, and cutting-edge design, fabrication, and project execution expertise, the client benefited from an extremely high- yield ion exchange solution that saved 35% in cost operation while providing <1 megohm high-quality water and zero liquid discharge (ZLD).
