Guests from all over the world

A number of customers and business partners from around the world have recently visited our state-of-the-art AFM® production facility in Edinburgh, Scotland. They can watch the AFM® production and activation process first hand, from the moment the raw glass is brought in all the way to the bagging and loading for transportation. Here a few impressions from a group from Vietnam:




Dryden Aqua enters the pool-market in Asia

Dryden Aqua has joined the SPLASH ASIA (pool show) in Singapore. Everything in Singapore is impressive: The skyline, the  hotels, the technology, the architecture. Everything is big and of a high quality - the best of the best; everything but the pool water treatment! We were shocked to see the low standards of pool water treatment - even in the best hotels.

At night, you should not be able to see a beam of light shining through the water. If you can see the light beam this means there are small particles of dead bacteria and bits of bacteria in the water. Especially for children and women there is a high risk of catching serious diseases, eye and ear infections. According to medical doctors in Singapore many women are affected by gynaecological infections. Clearly this is not acceptable; definitely not for a society like the Singaporians who are proud to be the quality leaders in the region.

ACO is a highly innovative, ecofriendly product that disinfects water by amplifying the natural disinfection power
of the sun. ACO also protects chlorine from sunlight and UV. ACO is especially effective in outdoor pools.

ACO has 3 main features:


  • Oxidation catalyst: ACO is a catalyst that amplifies the natural disinfection power of the sun. ACO can be combined with any conventional oxidizing agent (chlorine, bromine, peroxide). Sun in combination with ACO will make your water sparkling clear.
  • Chlorine stabilizer: ACO protects chlorine and bromine from photo oxidation. The half-time of chlorine increases by a factor of 4 – 5 and the chlorine demand will be reduced by 30 %. By using ACO as a chlorine stabilizer the effectiveness of chlorine will not be decreased like with cyanuric acid. With ACO the opposite happens: oxidation improves because free radicals are formed in this process.
  • Peroxide booster: ACO supports the disinfection power of hydrogen peroxide and thereby ensures crystal clear water.
