Ecodyne Limited Announces Exclusive Technology Agreement with Xedia Process Solutions for Enhanced Walnut Shell Filter Media
BURLINGTON, CANADA February 13, 2018 – Ecodyne Ltd has signed a multi-year exclusive agreement with Xedia to use its XDN modified nutshell media. The agreement covers water treatment applications in Canadian and Chinese Upstream Oil and Gas market sectors as well as the North American Refining and Petrochemical sectors.
The price outlook of oil has led exploration and production companies to look for innovative ways to reduce capital and operating costs with respect to injection well treatment. Ecodyne will use Xedia’s XDN media which has been successfully implemented around the world as a solution to current filtration challenges. XDN, when placed in Ecodyne’s Hydroflow® Walnut Shell Filter, has shown it can as much as double the capacity of the filter while simultaneously improving oil and solids removal performance. In addition, replacement of antiquated walnut shell media with XDN presents an opportunity to improve the performance of existing systems.
Declan McLaughlin, Senior VP of Marmon Water, summarized expected benefits to Ecodyne’s customers, saying “We are very excited to be working with Xedia and utilizing the XDN modified nutshell media breakthrough technology. Ecodyne Ltd plans to use this XDN product to spearhead our suite of water filtration products into our core markets. XDN offers our customers life cycle savings and performance benefits beyond what is currently available in the market. This, coupled with Ecodyne’s world class execution, is going to be a winning combination.”
