MIOX Corporation, a leader in safe water disinfection, displayed for the first time its new Vault™ self-cleaning on-site generator at the American Water Works Association’s (AWWA) annual conference and exhibition in Chicago, Illinois. The conference, attended by approximately 12,000 with over 500 exhibitors, was a successful venue for unveiling the new Vault small series on-site generator, which is unlike anything on the market. Designed for high efficiency, low lifecycle cost, durability and reliability, the self-cleaning Vault with self-adjusting flow control is virtually maintenance free. The Vault, which generates 15-100 lbs/day of free available chlorine (FAC), features an easy-to-upgrade cell to convert between sodium hypochlorite and advanced mixed oxidant with expandable capacity for maximum flexibility.
“It was invigorating to see the strong positive reactions to the Vault by end users, leading engineering firms and other industry leaders at the show,” MIOX CEO Carlos Perea commented. “The Vault delivers all of the standard benefits of on-site generation, including the safety advantages of not storing and transporting chemicals. But the Vault has been carefully designed to go so much further than any other disinfection system in the industry. With minimal maintenance required, easy installation and very low operational costs, the Vault is truly the first of its kind.”
Founded in 1881, AWWA is the authoritative resource on safe water, with more than 60,000 members worldwide sharing knowledge on water resource development, water and wastewater treatment technology, water storage and distribution, and utility management and operations. AWWA provides knowledge, information and advocacy to improve the quality and supply of water in North America and beyond and advances public health, safety and welfare by uniting the efforts of the full spectrum of the water community.
MIOX’s clean technologies treat water using only salt, water and electricity to generate a dilute disinfectant on site, eliminating the storage and handling of hazardous disinfection chemicals while still providing a chlorine residual. Creating disinfectant on site is safe, cost effective and environmentally responsible, cutting back transportation requirements, reducing carbon emissions and fuel consumption, and eliminating the storage losses and disposal of chemical containers.
