Xylem Unveils UV Saltwater Solution

Zacks Equity Research

The leading provider of innovative solutions to global water challenges, Xylem Inc. (XYL), has recently unveiled an extension of its WEDECO disinfection systems. The new technology goes hand in hand with the company’s goal of providing solutions to the most challenging water problems.

Xylem’s new WEDECO ultraviolet disinfection solutions are specifically developed for the tank-based aquaculture industry. The new closed-vessel WEDECO BX and Quadron series ultraviolet systems have been designed for countering the disease causing agents -- fish pathogens. The system can also be used in saltwater as its duplex stainless steel container is resistant to corrosion.

The new systems will be able to efficiently manage flows ranging from 10 cubic meters to more than 4,000 cubic meters per hour. Apart from this, Xylem intends to help customers in every aspect of aquaculture, from pumping, treatment and instrumentation to heat exchange and control systems.

Xylem provides its aquaculture solutions for quality instrumentation, flow and level monitoring and control, pumping, disinfection, heat exchange and customer service. Disinfection is done through ultraviolet and ozone technologies, which are proven, tested and certified.

Xylem’s WEDECO is a popular brand in the ultraviolet technologies. The brand’s reach spans across the European countries, mainly Norway. Not only aquaculture, Xylem offers its products to many industries including agriculture, commercial usage, construction, environmental usage, food and beverage, industrial, residential as well as mining.

Based in White Plains, NY, Xylem operates in more than 150 countries worldwide. The company reported weak results for second-quarter 2013, with a year-over-year decline in earnings as well as revenues due to overall market weakness.

Xylem currently carries a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell). Other stocks worth a watch in the machinery industry are Gorman-Rupp Co. (GRC), Graham Corp. (GHM) and The Middleby Corp. (MIDD). While Gorman-Rupp and Graham Corp. carry a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Middleby carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
