Porta-PAK MAX odor treatment packs – designed to keep portable restrooms fresher in extreme summer heat – were introduced by Walex Products at the 2014 Pumper and Cleaner Environmental Expo International.

“This product meets the demand from our customers for a stronger odor-control packet for use in summer months and extreme conditions,” says Corey Morton, sales manager for Walex Products. “What we were able to do was basically develop a stronger, more effective product in the original footprint of our Porta-PAKs.”

The Porta-PAK MAX has 50 percent more color and odor control, and double the fragrance of the company’s standard Porta-PAK.

“This is really our response to a change in the industry,” says Morton. “We feel that the economy has turned for the better. People are looking for performance first, and that’s what this product provides.”

The Porta-PAK MAX dissolves quickly, is safe and easy to use, requires no skin contact with chemicals, and has a long shelf life. A portable sanitation technician drops one pack in the holding tank and adds water. The pack quickly dissolves, leaving specially formulated chemicals powered by Walex’s Wave-2 technology to dissolve inside the restroom tank.

The packs are formaldehyde-free, biodegradable and are available in Tangerine, Sun Glow and Mango fragrances. They are packaged in resealable bags for easy transport and distribution at special events and along portable restroom service routes.

“This is our popular Porta-PAK, only longer lasting and more concentrated,” says Morton. “It’s an answer for those looking for a stronger product, and an opportunity for our company to provide better service to our customers.”

Morton says the reaction to the new product at the Expo was sometimes overwhelming, as both longtime Walex customers and newcomers to the product line were eager to learn more about the new deodorizer.

“This show has been great for us,” says Morton. “We had terrific traffic at our booth, and the attendees were enthusiastic and wanted to learn more. There were a lot of buyers on the floor this year, which is something we obviously love to see.”

Morton says Walex tries to roll out at least one new product at every Expo, and that will be no different in 2015 at the rebadged WWETT (Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport) Show. At the 2015 show, Walex will be offering new products for grease trap odor control and treatment.

“We’re excited to look at what we believe is a growing part of the industry,” says Morton. “A lot of our customers on the portable restroom side also service grease traps, and they’ve been requesting we look at that. We’re looking forward to it.” 800/338-3155; www.walex.com.
