BALLERUP, Denmark, Oct. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- LiqTech International, Inc. (NASDAQ: LIQT), a clean technology company that manufactures and markets highly specialized filtration products and systems, today announced it has entered a new agreement for the distribution of LiqTech's Aqua Solution® swimming pool water filtration systems covering the Middle East. The agreement helps to expand LiqTech's fast-growing swimming pool systems market in this key geographic market.
LiqTech has partnered with UK and Dubai-based Barr + Wray to distribute the Aqua Solution® to Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Fei Chen, CEO of LiqTech, commented, "We are very pleased to enter this important distribution agreement with a well-established player in the commercial swimming pool business. Our proprietary and differentiated swimming pool water filtration systems are gaining strong market traction, and I am confident that the close collaboration with Barr + Wray will boost LiqTech's adoption in this new territory."
Ian Montgomerie, CEO of Barr + Wray Group, said, "We see huge potential in the collaboration with LiqTech in the years to come. LiqTech's pool filtration system is strategically a perfect match with Barr + Wray cutting edge work in the design and build of the most prestigious state-of-the-art leisure centers and spas."
Compared to traditional media filtration systems that are widely used in commercial swimming pools, LiqTech's pool system solution has demonstrated a convincing value proposition according to our customers. LiqTech pool system ensures excellent and safe water quality and contributes to a significant reduction in carbon footprint with up to an 80% reduction in water spending, 60% lower energy consumption, and 30% lower chlorine dosing. At the same time, the system size is only one-third the size compared of a conventional media filtration system and is therefore perfect for retrofitting without extensive changes to building constructions being necessary.
The Aqua Solution® is a LiqTech ceramic filter solution for liquids with suspended solids. LiqTech's Aqua Solution® integrates a dead-end structural design with cutting-edge membrane technology that is specifically designed for water pre-treatment in reverse osmosis applications, wastewater treatment, and swimming pool and spa water filtration. The dead-end design yields more cost-efficient filtration performance compared to other filtration options. As a comparison, for the same treated water flow, traditional sand filters have pore sizes three times larger than LiqTech's SiC membranes. Moreover, LiqTech's Aqua Solution® reduces the number of membrane elements, pressure vessels, water consumption for backwash, and energy costs by providing high flow rates at very low pressure.
