Engineering firm Clearwater Controls Ltd is set to make waves in international markets following a six-figure deal with UK Steel Enterprise.

Based in Scotland, the business has received loan and equity funding, one of the largest packages to ever be awarded by UKSE. The funding will be used to assist the company increase operations, both within the UK and across the world.

Since it was founded in 2012 Clearwater Controls Ltd has received widespread industry acclaim for its device which prevents blockages in wastewater pipes. Developed in partnership with Scottish Water, the ‘Deragger’ is the only intelligent product of its kind available in the market. Its real-time detection mechanism provides an efficient solution to wet-wipe type obstructions by removing detrimental materials before they cause harm.

By eradicating both minor and major blockages, the revolutionary device increases the efficiency of the pipes, thereby reducing energy consumption and significantly cutting operational costs.

Simon Crompton, managing director at Clearwater Controls Ltd said: “This is an exciting time for our organisation. We have started to build a presence in the USA, and have opportunities developing in Europe and Australia. This funding will be crucial in helping us to increase our international penetration.

“We are grateful to UKSE for believing in us and giving us the support we need to expand.”

Scott Webb, regional executive at UKSE said: “Thames Water recently announced it spends almost £1 million a month removing non-flushable items from London’s network of wastewater pipes. This a huge problem facing the UK and the Deragger will help to combat these types of issues.

“Clearwater Control Ltd is a very innovative business which has the potential to achieve significant success on the international stage and we are glad to be joining them on what is sure to be a very exciting journey.”
