Flowrox, a Finland based company specializing in flow control, process automation, environmental and solid-liquid separation technologies, strengthens its operations in Central Europe by opening a new subsidiary, Flowrox GmbH in Ratingen, Düsseldorf, Germany.
Flowrox has launched CF-V centrifugal pump with a vertical cantilever design. Flowrox CF-V pump is the most suitable for mining, minerals processing and other industrial operations, delivering reliable performance in sumps and pits.
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 traditional actuator’s tower design usually works well with slurry knife gate valves. But only as long as the valve is small enough. The bigger the DN, the higher will be the valve. Let us say we need a valve DN 1200. Using the tower design, it means the valve would be extremely high in open position: 5,60 meters! Extreme heights also mean a higher centre of gravity. This makes the knife gate valve more difficult to handle, less stable during assembly and harder to access for maintenance. In other words, less safe.
Flowrox Plasma OxidizerTM is launched – the first and unique industrial water treatment technology in the world that utilizes non-thermal plasma. Plasma generated oxidants effectively remove colour, odour and organic residues while disinfecting the water. Ground-breaking innovation Flowrox Plasma Oxidizer was also one of the finalists for the Aquatech Innovation Award 2019, so-called “Oscars of the Water Technology Industry”.
Polar-Automaatio’s parent company Flowrox successfully completed the sale of its valve- and pump businesses to Neles. Flowrox company rebranded to Roxia. At the same time also Polar-Automaatio’s name changed to Roxia Automation Oy.
