H2F Vortisand filtration system selected

Sonitec-Vortisand has announced that it has been pre-qualified for the Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) offered by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) for its H2F Vortisand cross-flow microsand submicron filter.

Created to bolster innovation in Canada’s business sector, the BCIP helps companies bridge the pre-commercialisation gap by procuring and testing late stage innovative goods and services within the federal government, Sonitec-Vortisand explained.

Since 2010 over 1,200 proposals have been submitted, and in the latest round, 72 proposals have been selected for pre-qualification, among which H2F Vortisand features, the company informed.

H2F Vortisand cross-flow microsand submicron filtration system was submitted to the category of innovations for the environment, and was pre-selected to provide 1,200 gpm (272 m3/h) H2F Vortisand filters for use as side stream filtration on large cooling towers for government buildings, the company revealed.

The newest addition to the Vortisand family, the H2F Vortisand, is engineered for higher flows while maintaining submicron filtration efficiency, as it operates at a speed that is five times faster than traditional filters at 24gpm/ft2 (60m/h) while supplying a higher water quality than any other media filter, resulting in a highly compact footprint for large applications, the company claimed.

“We firmly believe in the improved competitive advantages of this exciting new product line. The first market reactions have simply been tremendous,” said Marco Bosisio, Sonitec-Vortisand General Manager.
