Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer™ is an effective non-thermal plasma technology for industrial water purification. Plasma generated oxidants effectively remove colour, odour and organic residues while disinfecting the water. Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer (FPO) is the superb water purification system alternative to ozone, UV and chemical treatment.
Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer Replaces Treatment Chemicals With Plasma
Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer (FPO) is unique industrial water treatment technology as it uses non-thermal plasma in direct contact with water to destroy dissolved organic pollutants. Purified water can now be a result of completely chemical-free process. FPO is considered to be the paradigm shift in oxidative water treatment and industrial water purification. It eliminates the need for transportation, storage and handling of risky disinfection chemicals, thereby mitigating costs and environmental risks. Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer is safer, more economical and environmentally friendlier solution.
Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer is a superb alternative to ozone, UV and chemical water treatment.
What can Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer do?
Destroy organic pollutants
Remove colour and odour
Prevent membrane fouling
Purify plant cooling water
Remove pharmaceutical residues
How does FPO work?
Treated water runs through non-thermal plasma field.
This creates strong oxidants from the treated water and surrounding air.
The oxidants then destroy pollutants and disinfect the water with a lasting effect.
Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer (FPO) turns direct plasma oxidation into an industrial product.
Your value from FPO:
Lower energy consumption
More powerful oxidation for the money
Robust design: only stainless steel is in contact with the water, no moving parts -> low maintenance
Insensitive towards turbidity
No UV lamps
No chemical logistics, storage and use
No chlorinated byproducts
Only electricity is used
Reduced safety protocols
Benefits & features
Effective plasma oxidation
Low energy consumption
Scaling up the Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer
The project objective is to design a 10-kW Flowrox plasma Oxidizer (FPO). This serves to fill a technological gap on organics control in ZLD targets within mining water management, where the technology has been proven extremely efficient.
This activity was funded by the Start-up & SME Booster Programme from the EIT RawMaterials, funded by the EIT, a body of the European Union supported under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.
Cleaner hospital wastewaters
Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer™ aims to destroy 90-99 % pharmaceutical residues from the hospital wastewaters. With this installation, Flowrox is the trailblazer on a global scale as this will be the first-of-a-kind on the planet!
The system will degrade pharmaceuticals before the hospital sewage enters the public sewer network and the concentrations are diluted. Installation to the local Central Hospital in Lappeenranta, Finland, was funded by the City of Lappeenranta and the Centre for Economic Development, Transport and Environment.
