METAWATER enters into a basic business agreement with Suido Kiko for OEM supply of Energy-saving thickener

METAWATER Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President: Tomoyasu Kida; hereinafter referred as "METAWATER") is pleased to announce the signing of a basic business agreement for OEM supply of its Energy-saving thickener (hereinafter referred as the "Agreement") with Suido Kiko Kaisha, Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President: Shinri Sato; hereinafter referred as "Suido Kiko").

METAWATER and Suido Kiko signed a business alliance agreement1 in the domestic drinking water / wastewater and environmental business in March 2013. Since that time, the two companies have facilitated collaboration aimed at expanding the business including the signing of a technical license agreement2 for METAWATER's advanced energy saving wastewater treatment process: a water treatment process equipped with a Floating Sponge Filtration system, a High-rate Trickling Filtration system, and a Final Solid-Liquid Separation tank.
Based on the Agreement, the two companies will facilitate the use of Energy-saving thickener in the drinking water market, both at home and abroad, while accelerating collaboration.

Key feature of Energy-saving thickener

METAWATER's filtration concentrator has adopted a filtration concentration method using the siphon effect created by natural phenomena. The use of the siphon effect enables low energy and stable concentration of sludge while the concentrator's simple configuration, which is unique to METAWATER, enables easy maintenance. In addition, the high concentration of sludge has increased the processing capacity of the dewatering system in the subsequent process, making it possible to downsize dewatering facilities.

Key features

・Low energy consumption (1/20 to 1/30 of the power consumed using a centrifugal concentrator) * based on available information
・Low noise and vibration levels with simple equipment configuration
・Fully automated
・Almost no clogging of filter cloth due to the low pressure filtration process using a siphon
・Concentration of low concentration sludge
・Low level of suspended sediment in filtrate
・Easier to maintain compared to open-type filtration tank
