Parkson’s engineers focus on development of new products, improvement of existing products, and application of existing products to new markets or uses.
The Water Research Facility makes it possible for Parkson to conduct a wide variety of research and development work. The WRF houses a 65,000 gallon test tank (12’ wide x 24’ long x 32’ deep) predominantly utilized for Standard Oxygen Transfer Testing, a chiller for maintaining water temperature during testing, and a variety of blower options. All of Parkson’s pilot plants are stored, maintained, and managed at the WRF.
Parkson also has an analytical laboratory that is used for water/wastewater characterization and initial product sizing. Additional work carried out at the WRF includes product lifecycle testing, performance testing, and prototype development and validation.
