"The VAL™ has run perfectly for 5 years.
We've never had such clean water before.
We significantly increased our survival rate."
"Our new building includes 60,500 gallons of shellfish purification tanks, for a total volume of 113,150 gallons to be treated, pumped directly from the lagoon. The initial plans included the conventional sand filter pumps and UV treatment systems. Switching from these technologies to the VAL™ has enabled us to consume 8X less energy, and a higher performance in terms of water quality, both in filtration and purification as well as in oxygenation."
Guy Sanchez - G.M. Major French Oyster Producer
"The VAL™ is the only system I've seen yet to accomplish all 3 functions:
1. Water circulation, 2. CO , N2 & O2 Mass transfer, and 3. Particle harvesting."
