Vortex Corporation, a company that manufactures chemical-free water and air purification products for consumer and commercial use, was named in a recent Red Herring Research Report as one of 12 private companies with potentially disruptive technologies in the emerging residential water treatment market. In the CleanTech water technology market report, "Liquid Assets: Residential Water Technologies," Red Herring Research stated there is "great opportunity" for the targeted companies to gain a "significant share" of the global water treatment market over the next few years.
Vortex¹s photo-oxidation technology simulates the environment¹s natural water purification phenomenon by way of an application of ultraviolet light and ozone technology applicable and scalable to a range of water-purification solutions. The newly redesigned Vortex Water Machine, a residential water treatment point-of-use (POU) device, is now modular and easier and safer to use, providing drinking water. Vortex has developed a whole-house system in conjunction with co-development partner, the University of Arizona¹s Water Quality Center, a leading authority on drinking water issues. This Point of Entry (POE) system ensures high quality water in residential showers, laundries, and sinks. Vortex is currently working to develop a ground water treatment system and expects to conduct a field trial with a major utility later this year. Vortex recently moved manufacturing to China to accommodate global demand for its products, particularly in Asia.
