LiqTech International, Inc. Announces First Commercial Pool Installation Order In North America

BALLERUP, Denmark, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LiqTech International, Inc. (OTCQX: LIQT) ("LiqTech") is pleased to announce that LiqTech received an order of SiC membranes for public pool installations in the U.S. valued at $500,000. The purchase order was placed by Provital Solutions, based in Denmark. The SiC membranes will be delivered over the next 12 months, and based on the initial positive feedback, Provital expects more installations this year.

Mr. Sune Mathiesen, Managing Director of Provital Solutions remarked, "Our company has used LiqTech SiC membranes to improve pool water quality, reduce energy consumption and total operating costs for pool installations in Scandinavia since 2009. Our new pool water solution is now available for full-scale marketing, so it was natural for us to look at the North American market. We are very pleased by the fantastic reception the new pool solution has received. We anticipate additional orders this year and are currently looking at different models to satisfy our customer's needs."

Provital Solutions is offering SiC membrane-based solutions for larger swimming pools, and its existing sales network covers Scandinavia, Singapore, Australia and now North America.

Mr. Finn Helmer, LiqTech CEO, added, "Provital has done a great job in utilizing the high flux potential of SiC membranes into a commercial package that not only improves the water quality for the users, but also reduces the consumption of clean water which is traditionally used to back flush sand filters several times per week – a great saving in dollars and environmental impact. The list of benefits goes on, since no chemical coagulants are needed and the operation is fully automated."

Sand filter replacement for the pool market is a promising application, because of the many existing installations and the liquid capacity being treated. In general, the LiqTech SiC membranes are replacing conventional pre-treatment processes, like sand filters and cartridge filters, and upstream Reverse Osmosis installations – to increase operating efficiency and reduce total cost of ownership.
