PRESS RELEASE- Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture

PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release

 

Aquanomix Technology Implemented in Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture

Water reuse system installed in newest Smithsonian museum

 

Davidson, NC- June 8, 2016- Aquanomix, a leader in water reuse technologies, is proud to announce that it has made its mark on history in its installation of a water reuse system at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). Aquanomix installed a water reuse system with a 119,000 gallon cistern and 15,000 gallon day tank with a 100 GPM filtration pumping station and 150 GPM triplex booster pump. The system reclaims groundwater, rainwater, and stormwater for use in toilet flushing, irrigation, and fountain makeup. Peak water use by the NMAAHC is expected to be 25,000 gallons per day.

 

“We’re humbled to have been selected as the provider of water reclamation equipment for this historic project,” says Aquanomix managing partner Robert O’Donnell. “The Smithsonian Institution houses some of the world’s greatest treasures. This monumental effort to bring the NMAAHC museum to fruition allows this tradition to continue. We eagerly await opening day.”

 

The $500 million, 350,000 square foot museum, which opens September 24, occupies the last remaining space on the National Mall and is the sole national museum dedicated entirely towards African American history and culture.The NMAAHC had been in the making for nearly a century before finally being authorized by legislation in 2003.

We’re Going to Silicon Valley!

Aquanomix will be returning to IBCon for their 2016 conference in Silicon Valley from June 22-23! We will be hosting Booth 105 at the Gateway Pavillion, and our very own Rob O’Donnell will be a featured speaker for the event. So, who’s down for a road trip?

Yep, they asked us to speak… again.

Aquanomix is a featured speaker at this year’s Annual ARCSA Convention (American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association) in Long Beach, California.

Join us as we tell you what you’re doing wrong in your quest to conserve. 😉

Our 2015 Conference will focus on rainwater catchment for uses beyond the garden as well as using water supplies wisely. We will look at how rainwater catchment is one solution to mitigating drought and decentralizing stormwater pollution.

Our dear friend and Board of Advisor Member, Colin Frayne, of the Association of Water Technologies, is the keynote speaker for this year’s event. Mr. Frayne has a great depth of experience with reusing water, water management, and water shortages around the world. Depth. See what we did there??

We’re Speaking This Weekend.

Managing Partner, Rob O’Donnell is speaking this weekend at the 2015 Data Center World Conference in the National Harbor, Maryland. Aquanomix Project Architect Des Prosser will join him to reinforce the criticality of water quality management in data centers.

Join us on Sunday as we kick-off the conference at 1:00 p.m. with our presentation entitled: $100,000 per Day: In Mission-Critical Facilities, Operational Safety, Efficiency, and Reliability Are Everything.

Mission critical environments are just that critical to business functions. Without exception, they cannot endure any shutdowns or interruptions. This applies even during planned maintenance, making proper preparation a vital factor in reducing human errors, equipment failure, and downtime. Because cooling water systems are key to keeping operations up and running, they require proper chemical treatment and preventive maintenance. In today’s world of expensive energy, controlling water chemistry needs to be part of a data center’s comprehensive asset health program. This should include the inductive reasoning of a Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) with real-time data to provide early system warnings for potential critical asset failures in cooling systems.

From e-commerce, to information storage, to logistics, to communication with your customers, the Data Center has become the heartbeat of global business. It’s the critical backbone of your operations, setting the foundations for organizational readiness and success, today and in the future.

Disruptive change is here to stay.

We all know it: Water treatment directly impacts heat exchange, energy use, and water use.

Join Aquanomix on Saturday morning at AWT as we talk about the power of data in the water industry. Hear from experts Desmond G. Prosser, Aquanomix, Project Architect and Lori McPherson, Walchem, Regional Sales Manager.

New technologies that create full transparency of the water treatment and water quality data are on the horizon. They will ultimately lead to a better water management program, lower operating costs, and a significant improvement in sustainable facilities management. Capital assets (hvac equipment) will be preserved, postponing a capital event, leading to a stronger P&L for the facility owner.

Water treatment professionals will have a terrific opportunity to help their clients understand, implement and operate these new optimization and benchmarking technologies as we move forward in this exciting chapter of our careers.

Learn more about technologies that powerfully marry heat exchange + water management data, which SAVES MONEY & IMPROVES PERFORMANCE.

We hope you’ll join us!
Date: Saturday, September 12, 2015
Time: 8:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.

About Desmond G. Prosser

Desmond (Des) Graham Prosser was born in Wales and grew up in the Welsh valleys, a mountainous industrial region renowned for its rugby, coal and steel production, leeks, and world famous singers, such as Tom Jones, Harry Secombe, and Shirley Bassey. After graduating from college with a B.Sc. in analytical chemistry in 1964, Des went to work for the Nylon Spinning division of Imperial Chemical Industries. He worked as a industrial chemist in its laboratories, dealing with all manner of analytical activities, such as ensuring raw material product QC and power plant boiler water and steam purity. Three years later in 1967, and after a brief stint as a process control chemist working at the Coal Tar Distillation division of the National Coal Board (NCB), Des went to work as a water treatment specialist at British Steel Corporation (BSC). He dealt with every kind of water technology available in those days, including lime soda softening, continuous base-exchange operation, demineralization, high-pressure boiler operation, power generation, gas cleaning, cooling systems, and wastewater. After BSC, and during the period 1973–1982, Des’s next move was to work as a Technical Services Officer (TSO) in the industrial water treatment business of the Swiss firm Ciba-Geigy, based in Manchester, England. He was responsible for all technical support services to metal refining industries. (During that time Des worked with another Brit—Colin Frayne, also a member of the Aquanomix team!). In 1982, the water treatment business of Ciba-Geigy was sold to Drew Ameroid UK (which eventually became Ashland Water and now Solenis), and Des became global head of technical support for metal refining, then for monitoring and control systems, based in The Netherlands (Holland), and finally, back to the UK, running all group consulting and technical services. In 2003, Des left to open up his own company—DP Specialty Chemicals Ltd—and was initially exporting water treatment chemicals to African countries such as Nigeria, but also providing technical consulting services. The technical support side was more satisfying, and so in 2004, he decided to change the focus of his business to software design for industrial water treatment chemistry/energy prediction and control. Today, Des lives in Calne, Wiltshire, England, but consults around the world, and has recently teamed up with Aquanomix in North Carolina to help them develop their own various water/energy predictive and management software systems.
