Are you having trouble with drainage treatment systems at construction sites or during disasters?

During construction work, civil engineering projects, and disasters, you may encounter water that cannot be directly discarded into rivers. While large factories typically have drainage treatment facilities, it is almost impossible to install full-scale, steel-made drainage treatment systems at short-term construction sites, narrow spaces where large construction equipment cannot be accessed, or during disasters.
In such cases, it is necessary to transport the contaminated water to such facilities which can result in significant workload and cost.

Hydro Vanguard, the smallest*1 wastewater treatment system, is the solution.

  1. No heavy machinery is required for assembly and disassembly, decreasing installment cost.
  2. Only 20 minutes of assembly time*2! Perfect for short-term construction projects.
  3. Small enough to fit into a small van and can be installed in narrow spaces.
  4. When used with a coagulant, it can separate sediment from water.

Hydro Vanguard

Lightweight and compact, assembly takes 20 minutes.

The Hydro Vanguard is made of metal frames and soft durable tarpaulin, making it lightweight enough for humans to carry. The assembly is also easy, taking only 20 minutes for three people to complete. When collapsed, it can fit in the back of a small van, enabling its use in places where large-scale wastewater treatment systems cannot be installed.

Benefits of Hydro Vanguard

1.Installed and operated at low cost

With the reasonable price point and significant reduction in transportation and labor costs required for installation, the introduction costs are kept low. In addition, the annual maintenance cost is roughly half of conventional systems, as it will not suffer from rust and corrosion of the tank, that usually occur with steel-made machines, thanks to the tarpaulin, the soft PVC coated polyester-base cloth.

2.Able to address short-term and emergency wastewater treatment needs

At short-term construction sites, large-scale systems are not cost-effective, the Hydro Vanguard is much more appropriate.
In addition, thanks to the quick assembly and ease of transportation, it is also suitable for emergency response in times of disasters.

3.Can be installed in places never possible before

When it is disassembled, it is small enough to be hand-carried. This makes it possible to conduct drainage treatments even at narrow construction sites where conventional systems cannot fit or in remote locations such as in mountains.
