EATON Awarded $1.3 Million Filter Contract


CLEVELAND ... Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced that it has secured a $1.3 million contract to provide Global Defense Technology & Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:GTEC), of Frederick, Maryland, and the US Army in Afghanistan, 184 mechanically cleaned DCF800 Filters. These filters will be used in GTEC's Expeditionary Tricon Shower Water Reuse System (SWRS), which incorporate the latest advances in approved shower water reuse technology. The compact DCFs will pre-filter collected wastewater and remove large debris down to 15 microns prior to advancing to a micro-filter and then a reverse osmosis membrane system.

Produced by Eaton's Filtration Division, the DCF filter is considered one the most efficient mechanically cleaned filters on the market. They operate at a consistently low differential pressure, eliminate disposable filter bags and cartridges, reduce operator handling, and are virtually maintenance-free with near 100% uptime. The DCF800 is suitable for a broad range of challenging applications.
