HOUSTON -- ITT Corp. debuted its Reverse Osmosis watermaker at the Offshore Technology Conference.

The new system, dubbed C'treat ROUSTABOUT, generates between 4,000 and 20,000 gallons of potable water per day from sea water. ITT says C'treat incorporates many features found in its custom-engineered watermakers including:

Rugged steel frames
High quality epoxy coatings
Corrosion resistant and durable components
Compact footprint
Highest levels of filtration in the industry
Simple, reliable system.

"With the ROUSTABOUT system, we have taken many of the features from our custom units and combined them in one ready-to-ship, off-the-shelf watermaker," says Tom Vanden Heuvel, GM of ITT C'treat Offshore. "Designed specifically for drill rigs, ships, and marine contractors, it will represent a reliable, high-value alternative to our custom-engineered systems and competing, less dependable off-the-shelf products."

C'treat also produces a full line of ultraviolet disinfection systems to sterilize drinking water, and custom water systems including potable water pumping packages for the offshore industry. All C'treat water systems can be specially designed for customer needs and specifications. ITT also backs all of its offshore water systems with a global network of on-call service and support.

"We know the locations of every product that we have manufactured, and are ready to help with maintenance or product support at any time," Vanden Heuvel says. "Whether it's a custom system or the new ROUSTABOUT series, our goal is to make the customer's experience with C'treat as simple and efficient as possible."

The C'treat ROUSTABOUT is designed for rapid delivery and is available immediately.
