Parkson Corporation is a leading supplier of equipment and solutions for potable water, process water, and industrial and municipal wastewater applications. We design, engineer and assemble products that provide customers with advanced screening, biological, filtration, and biosolids management solutions. Parkson was a pioneer in inclined plate clarification and continuous backwash sand filtration and today, with more than 25,000 installations, is a leading provider of advanced solutions in water recycling and treatment.
In addition to new construction, our team of highly-trained field service members are capable of completely rebuilding aging equipment or retrofitting equipment to include the latest technological advancements. Our Aftermarket Services Department additionally specializes in manufacturing, installation, maintenance, turnkey refurbishments and service contracts. Parkson’s Water Research Facility can also provide laboratory testing and pilot testing to help clients become better acquainted with the technologies and their capabilities.
Founded in 1960 and headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Parkson has been owned by Axel Johnson Inc. since 1967 and is committed to providing clean water for the world. Parkson is an industry leader in the USA with a global installation base. Additional branches are located in Chicago, Kansas City and Denver.
Parkson is branded around the core business of “Treating Water Right,” which defines our future business ambitions focused around the core water market.

Parkson has been known as a leading technology provider ever since it first launched the inclined plate Lamella® Gravity Settler in the U.S. municipal market in 1971. The list of innovations that Parkson has introduced to the U.S. municipal market include continuous backwash DynaSand® Filters, continuous belt Aqua Guard® Fine Screens, membrane aeration diffusers and solar-powered THERMO-SYSTEM® sludge driers.
Water is a critical input for many industrial processors, so having the appropriate water treatment technology in the manufacturing process makes a meaningful difference in both operating efficiency and profitability. The residual water produced during or after the manufacturing process requires proper treatment to avoid costly surcharges or provide for efficient recovery and reuse. At Parkson, our technologies have been delivering value to a wide range of industries for over 55 years.
Parkson Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the latest video in the Parkson University series, “Sludge Thickening – How Our Industry Has Been Calculating Polymer Usage Wrong.” In this video, we discuss how to correctly calculate polymer use during the sludge thickening process in wastewater treatment.
The video provides a different perspective on the sludge thickening process and explains how various features combine to make the ThickTech the best option for low polymer usage and the highest capture rates of 98% or more.
In this video, we explain why plastic elements, or “teeth”, on the Aqua Guard screen are most effective to assist in removing solids and ultimately, provide a reliable screening process with the highest capture rates. Watch the full video to learn more.
In this video, we discuss the curious science that is the inclined plate settler (also known as a Lamella). The process is a bit counter-intuitive, but through an interesting experiment, this video shows how they work. Inclined plate settlers can reduce required footprint by 80% compared to traditional gravity settling.
Every once in awhile, something comes along that tackles complex problems with basic and sound fundamentals. For plants needing enhanced treatment to meet new or more stringent nutrient requirements, those needing extra capacity, struggling to meet current effluent levels, or all of the above, there is a new alternative that combines enhanced treatment with equalization, providing the best of both worlds -- The Parkson EquaReact® system.
The Aqua Caiman™ represents the next generation of multi-rake mechanical bar screens. In designing the screen, Parkson combined over 40 years of experience working on thousands of in-channel screen installations with in-depth market and engineering research. This allowed us to better understand the weaknesses of existing multi-rake and articulating rake screens.
This video provides a detailed explanation of the process and benefits of the MRI Inclined Plate Settler System over conventional settling methods. MRI’s Inclined Plate Settlers and Hoseless Cable-Vac Sludge Collectors combine in this system to provide a reduced footprint, cost savings, zero energy usage, and superior efficiency and effluent quality.
This video provides a simple overview of the screen’s creation, function, features and benefits. From the beginning, Parkson engineers took it a step further by working with a leading design firm to rethink the industry standard step style screen from the ground up. They reviewed current offerings on the market and improved upon the common weak points. The result is the most durable escalating screen out there – the Aqua Rhino.
An introduction to wastewater treatment process unlike any other out there. Whether you don’t know the first thing about what happens when you flush the toilet, or you’re an engineer or an operator with 20 years under your belt in waste water, there is certainly something in this video series for you. These videos take a holistic approach to the municipal wastewater treatment process, and first answer WHY we are treating what we treat, and only then going over HOW we treat wastewater, in a way that anyone can understand.
The second video of the series, covers treatment of the large inert wastes through the headworks, screens dewatering and conveyance steps. An introduction to wastewater treatment unlike any other out there. Whether you don’t know the first thing about what happens when you flush the toilet, or you’re an engineer or an operator with 20 years under your belt, there is certainly something in this video series for you. These videos take a holistic approach to the treatment process, and first answer WHY we are treating what we treat, and only then going over HOW we treat it, in a way that anyone can understand.
The third video of the series, follows how water is treated throughout the treatment process. Reviewing primary clarification of insoluble BOD and other settleable material, biological treatment, secondary clarification, tertiary filtration, phosphorus removal, denitrification, disinfection and discharge.
The fourth and final introductory video of the series, follows how biosolids are treated throughout the process. Reviewing thickening, aerobic and anaerobic digestion, dewatering and drying. An introduction to wastewater treatment unlike any other out there.
This video examines the economic evaluations of life cycle cost over capital investment and introduces an innovative new bid procedure to assure the best overall value for the end user.
Parkson has taken a very unique and highly creative approach to create a new DynaSand® product video that provides customers a crystal clear picture of what differentiates the EcoWash® hybrid sand filter from all other sand filters. We think you will appreciate the entirely “out of the box” approach and promise you will not find this to be the usual dull and uninteresting product video.
