Voltea, a global provider of electro-desalination water treatment technology with North Texas ties, announced this week that its launching its first residential-focused water purification unit.
The Netherlands-based company, whose U.S. headquarters is in Farmers Branch, introduced the unit called DiEntry this week at PCBC 2018 at the Moscone Center In San Francisco. PCBC is the largest homebuilding trade show representing the West Coast region.
Voltea is taking orders for delivery in August, including Dallas-Fort Worth, the company said.
“Home builders and homeowners will benefit from our experience providing water treatment solutions to some of the top companies in the world.”
According to Voltea, DiEntry addresses the most pressing water issues in the market — quality, taste, and waste — via the company’s energy-saving CapDI technology that “tunes” water to meet the needs of the homeowner and community.
“We’re pleased to provide a transformative product for the residential market that is based on our industry-leading CapDI technology,” Voltea CEO Bryan Brister said in a statement. “Home builders and homeowners will benefit from our experience providing water treatment solutions to some of the top companies in the world.”
The Farmers Branch facility makes the modules for the CapDI technology, and the system shell is made at the company’s headquarters in Sassenheim, Netherlands.
This non-chemical technology has disrupted an industry that relies on chemical additives or so-called “soft” salt to treat water, the company said.
VOLTEA SYSTEMS PROVIDES ON-DEMAND PURIFIED WATER
The DiEntry technology offers “customizable” and fundamentally better water within the home as well as better and less water discharged from the home, Voltea said. The system requires less space than that other residential water treatment systems.
DiEntry offers advantages for homeowners who are interested in technology that facilitates a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, Voltea said. It gives homeowners control over the quality and taste of their water while reducing the environmental impact because DiEntry uses and wastes less water than other products.
And, the system can be tuned to provide on-demand purified water from all faucets of the home with no salt or chemicals.
Earlier this year, Voltea was recognized as the Breakthrough Water Technology Company of the Year for its patented technology and growing customer base across multiple industries at the 2018 Global Water Summit in Paris.
In April, Voltea said it closed a $10 million funding round, with much of the new money going toward bolstering its North Texas facility.
At the time, Brister said the company planned on “hiring several new employees in the Dallas area, both highly skilled engineers and product team members.”
Voltea opened its facility in North Texas nearly two years ago, and has roughly 30 local employees.
