Duperon to Present on the Hydropression™ Effect at WEFTEC 2011 in Los Angeles

Saginaw, MI – Terry Duperon and Mike Woodley of Duperon Corporation will present “The Application of the Hydropression™ Effect to the Cleaning of Perforated Plate Openings of 2mm to 6mm in the Wastewater Treatment Plant Environment” at WEFTEC 2011 in Los Angeles, California during the Innovative Technology Forum on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 11am. The session will “present the most innovative ideas from exhibiting companies,” according to WEFTEC officials. (The Innovative Technology Forum will include the presentation of the 2011 Innovative Technology Award.)

The patent-pending Hydropression™ Effect was developed by Duperon Corporation as a result of investigations into improved methods of cleaning perforated plate screens. Duperon Research and Development engineers observed new possibilities using the thin flat plate effect; upon further testing, they found the fluid dynamics forces of the effect were easily applied without intricate mechanics – effectively and simply cleaning perforated plate openings without contact on the screen. This discovery opened up new options for eliminating blinding and stapling issues common to the technology. “It’s a concept that’s revolutionary in its simplicity,” said Terry Duperon, Chairman of the Board of Duperon Corporation.

“The research we’ve done leading to this presentation is interesting; it’s going to allow the next generation of screening technology to emerge,” relayed Mike Woodley, Duperon® Research and Development Engineer.

Duperon is the leader in preliminary liquids/solids separation technologies and provides treatments for coarse screening, fine screening, low flow screening, ultra screening, washing compacting, and conveying. Duperon technologies are designed and manufactured in Saginaw, Michigan.
