The Centrisys team designed a whole new system to eliminate polymer, and the world is taking notice
When Centrisys President Michael Kopper and his team of engineers set out to design the THK Thickening System, they weren’t looking to win any awards. They were just trying to solve a problem for wastewater treatment plants: the high cost of polymer used in thickening.
Nonetheless, the team’s success in eliminating that problem is quickly gaining recognition. The THK, which requires no polymer even while operating at higher flow rates, has earned a 2013 Innovative Technology Award from the Water Environment Federation (WEF), an international, not-for-profit water quality organization.
