October 29, 2009, Fort
Lauderdale, FL – Parkson Corporation has granted Hydro International an
exclusive license to market its high-efficiency HiOx® UltraFlex
Aeration Panels in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

“This is an important
technology that saves energy and delivers increased treatment capabilities,
which is why we are expanding the HiOx technology to the United Kingdom and
Ireland, where we believe the product’s capabilities will be very well received
given those regions’ relatively high cost of electricity” commented Zain
Mahmood, president and CEO of Parkson Corporation.

HiOx Aeration Panel
technology has been engineered to achieve much smaller bubble size and
high-floor-area coverage, thereby increasing oxygen transfer efficiencies by at
least 20 percent and maintaining low aeration flux rate. The HiOx Aeration
System reduces power requirements and improves overall plant efficiency. This
technology is suitable for both retrofit and new applications.

“The most energy intensive
operation in any sludge plant is associated with the requirements for mixing
and aeration,” says Chris Day, general manager of Hydro International’s
wastewater division. “HiOx cuts plant energy requirements dramatically and at
the same time offers significantly increased capacity at a low installation
cost.”

Lower installation costs
are achieved because each HiOx aeration panel covers a large area, the
equivalent of 100 conventional 9-inch (22cm) disk-type diffusers.

Hydro International has a
very strong footprint in the UK and Ireland and is a demonstrated leader in the
water industry,” explained Zain Mahmood, “and we are proud of the emerging
relationship and the ability to introduce such an advanced aeration technology
to a new international region.
