KALAMAZOO, Michigan — PRAB Inc., announced the continuation of its partnership with EVALED, a European manufacturer of industrial systems that treat wastewater by accelerating the natural evaporation process.

A division of the Italian-based water treatment company Veolia Italia, EVALED specializes in three primary types of evaporation technology – heat pumps, hot/cold water evaporators, and Mechanical Vapor Recompression (MVR) units – to help industrial customers reduce their energy consumption, minimize their CO2 footprint and use less water in their operations.

“The future of wastewater treatment is here, and it involves being aware of global water shortages, more stringent limits on wastewater discharge, and higher costs for energy and disposal,” said Tim Hanna, PRAB’s Vice President of Business Development. “We’re proud to continue our partnership with EVALED and help our North American customers use green solutions to mitigate their rising operational costs.”

For 30 years, EVALED has provided wastewater treatment solutions throughout the world and has partnered with PRAB since 2013. All EVALED evaporators adhere to ISO 9001:2008 quality management standards.

“Now more than ever, the effectiveness of those processes hinges on the responsible use of a finite resource,” Hanna said. “Major industrial operations are increasing their focus on water management as the business and humanitarian case for developing a proactive approach becomes more compelling. EVALED evaporators represent an excellent response to the increasing concern of a global water shortage by providing opportunities for ZLD (Zero Liquid Discharge), water reuse and recycling.”
