It is a technology that has already transformed our world. The oil-rich nations of the Persian Gulf already have giant desalination plants that supply their kingdoms and emirates with vast quantities of drinking-water straight from the ocean. It makes perfect sense that oil-rich desert states are the first major birthplaces for the desalinization industry: for now, the energy consumption that goes into most of today’s desalination plants is simply too costly for most countries to entertain on a large scale. But all that is already changing. As desertification becomes ever more present across the planet, the need for cheaper desalination technology is becoming increasingly apparent.

The United States is a relative latecomer to the potential gold-mine of desalination, but companies throughout America are beginning to see the profit and utility in finding a way to filter saltwater cheaply by using much less energy. Solar Water Energy, LLC of Detroit has patented a means of extracting freshwater from seawater by way of solar panels. United Water New York, the chief supplier of Rockland County’s drinking water, has recently proposed a desalination plant that would use millions of gallons of desalinized Hudson River water to supply the county’s daily needs.

As with any industry, desalinization plants must be carefully maintained and guarded against corrosion. The seawater used in desalination plants contains all kinds of unwanted substances and substrates. If a plant manager isn’t careful, these various substrates can get lodged into the evaporator tubes that are the foremost feature of the desalinization process. Soluble compounds like calcium carbonate (a common occurrence in seawater) gradually deposit layers of sediment in the evaporation tubes, eventually stopping the process of freshwater-making dead in its tracks.

At Fluidtrol, we’ve built basket strainers for all kinds of dirt and crud, from swimming pools to water-parks to chemical and wastewater treatment, and desalination plants are no exception. Currently, we are in the process of providing basket strainers for a new desalination plant in Eastern Australia (a region stricken by substantial rainfall declines). With our Alabama work ethic that combines steady pragmatism with the ability to work overtime, we can get nearly any job completed in record time.

Freshwater resources may seem to be disappearing, but that’s only for a bleak moment in history. The future of freshwater supplies remains strong and steady with desalination technology. We look forward to the day when we get to apply our experience in producing basket strainers (on an industrial scale) to one of the premier technologies of tomorrow.

We tackle each assignment with an all-terrain sense of adventuresome engineering, and a work ethic that can’t be feigned. The modest scope of our company affords us a margin of creative adaptability that many larger corporations have long since bailed from their systems, allowing us to work on a large number of products and projects that have no direct bearing towards one another.

Like traffic in Los Angeles or frostbite in Antarctica, water-parks are simply a fact of life in North America. Of the 1,600 estimated water-parks that are extant in the world, over 1,000 of them can be found in North America, principally in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. With an estimated attendance of over 80 million in North America alone last year (and with a steady 3-5% rise in attendance each year), it’s a fun-loving, lucrative industry to find yourself involved in. But all water-sliding and wave machining aside, it can be a lot of hard work implementing the ideal park that suits both the needs of your budget and your customers’ sense of adventure. You need to build attractions that stand out from the rest of the pack, ones that are fun and easy to use; but which are also cost-effective to build and maintain for the long-term.

Fluidtrol built much of its name and track-record around the aquatic industry. Water-parks have been an essential section of our business since nearly the get-go. With our structurally sturdy fiberglass, with our corrosion-resistant PVC, and with our laminate construction (a building material which combines the advantages of both previous entries), we’ve gone a long way in supplying the water-park industry with the necessary,basket strainersreducers, and modulating float valves that keep its attractions running fresh and clean on a daily basis, summer after summer.

As we enter into the hot months, and people quickly begin realizing that their fans, air conditioners, and lawn-hoses aren’t quite enough to sate their thirst for keeping cool, it’s a sure bet the average all-American family is going to want to hit a water-park at some point this summer. After all, not everyone lives next door to a sandy, white beach. And besides even that, oceans don’t come with wave machines.

Whether you’re the owner of deepwater oil rigs embedded in the Gulf of Mexico or off the Saudi Arabian coast, or whether you manage a water treatment plant servicing the needs of a coastal town or city somewhere in the world, it’s likely you’re aware of just how invasive and corrosive seawater can become towards your equipment functioning properly.

Most of you out there in the Commercial Aquatics Industry are probably familiar with the term, “hair and lint strainers.” They’re the sort of basket strainer one uses for one’s swimming pool to clean out all the excess crud that otherwise would impact pump performance and filter loading (along with other functions and regulatory concerns).

While every politician and pundit has his or her own extrapolation about how this data should be interpreted, the truth of the matter is that manufacturing jobs appear to be making their way back – ever so slowly – to the United States, from overseas and abroad.

Many strainer companies make a point of sounding overly technical about seawater corrosion. They’ll trot out various points of scientific terminology that let you know they’re well-versed about corrosion and its various effects on sundry materials.

Hydropolis was a creature of its time and place. The time was the mid 2000s and its booming real estate market; the place was Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, a city celebrated for its flashiness and over-excess.

America truly depends on carboniferous energy, yet our country must also make sure that coal gets used wisely and “cleanly,” without coal-based pollutants rising unchecked into the stratosphere. Study after study – both public and corporate-sponsored – demonstrates that coal contributes to air pollution at levels that are high enough to be cause for concern
