Hexprotect™ Wind Resistant Floating Cover

A cover for all your needs.

Hexprotect™ cover system (patented) by Advanced Water Treatment Technologies, Inc. is the result of intense and extensive reasearch leading to a product which fulfills demands of an affordable and wind resistant floating cover for liquids.

Hexprotect™ Wind Resistant Floating Cover

Hexprotect™ Wind Resistant Floating Cover

It offers highly effective solutions to problematic liquid storage systems such as municipal and industrial wastewater, treatment processing plants, metal and petrochemical plants, leachate ponds, airports, raw water reservoirs and other applications for heat retention, photosynthesis prevention and or a wildlife deterrent.

The Hexprotect™ system ensures coverage of up to 99%. The resulting thermal insulation barrier combines the insulation factor of the air held in each tile with the poor heat conductivity of plastic. While the small air pockets between the tiles are not sealed, they also contribute to this insulation system, which dramatically reduces heat loss and light transfer. The cover also reduces liquid loss through evaporation and prevents odor problems.

The Hexprotect™ barrier, contrary to standard covers, does not represent an obstacle to static, moving or dipping equipment. The tiles can be easily pushed aside and the cover reforms itself as the basin and obstacles change configuration, as in a clarifier. In fact, the tiles will keep up with liquid level, rising, lowering and restacking themselves as needed.

Hexprotect™ are also an effective wildlife deterrent. When entirely covered, the body of water becomes unattractive to waterfowl and other wildlife such as deer. They simply don’t recognize it as water. Compared to netting, Hexprotect™ are not sensitive to ice or snow damage and do not require any kind of support. Hexprotect™ are produced with high quality high density polyethylene. The expected life time is 25 years.

Suggested Applications

  • Lagoons and other sites with open installations
  • Water tanks
  • Water reservoirs
  • Water settlement lagoons
  • Leachate from livestock and biogas plants
  • Separated liquid manure
  • Stormwater accumulation systems
  • TSS removal
  • CBOD5 reduction
  • Mines and Chemical plants
  • Dairies
  • Nurseries
  • Fish farms and Slaughter houses
  • Paper mills
  • Purification plants

Hexprotect™ technical data

Hexprotect™ tiles are made of virgin or recycled, high density polyethylene HDPE (FDA (3) and NSF approved HDPE resins available for special applications). The cover self ballasts, increasing its weight more than 260%, making it suitable for high wind applications. The proprietary features and manufacturing process ensures the cover floats with slightly more than 50% of its shell above water.

Compared to other hexagonal tile covers, the Hexprotect cover is often cheaper to ship and offers improved wind resistance. Installation remains extremely simple, and simply consists of unloading the product directly onto the liquid.
