Pump, tank cart

A new non-metallic, Mobile Pump/Tank Cart from Vanton transfers wastewater and caustic/acidic chemicals with no corrosion, and ultrapure fluids with no contamination. All fluid contact surfaces of the tank, base plate, and secondary containment chamber are of solid polypropylene, polyethylene, PVC or other inert thermoplastic, precluding chemical attack across the entire pH range. The pump, a Flex-I-Liner® model CC-PY12B, uses a rotor mounted on an eccentric shaft to push fluid trapped between a flexible elastomer liner and a solid thermoplastic body block at flows to 2 gpm, pressures to 25 psig and temperatures to 185°F. The self-priming design has no seals to leak or valves to clog and can run dry without damage.

Inclined plate settlers were identified as a feasible alternative for improving supernatant water quality and were selected for pilot testing.

Be the Change: Embracing New Approaches to Foster Innovation in the Water Industry

The pressure to accommodate change will drive our traditionally risk-averse industry to embrace new and different approaches at an accelerated pace. Further, the demand for a zero-energy footprint will also drive improvements in co-generation efficiencies, energy conservation and recovery methods, and comprehensive resource recovery.

CDC preparing Ebola guidance for wastewater treatment personnel

In a recent conference call with AWWA and other major water organizations, the CDC shared it has prepared and is conducting an expedited internal review of an interim guidance on wastewater worker safety and the inactivation of the Ebola virus by wastewater treatment processes.

New partnership to measure farmers' conservation impacts on U.S. water quality

The U.S. Department of the Interior and U.S. Department of Agriculture have announced a new partnership that will provide a clearer picture of the benefits of farmers' conservation practices on the quality of the nation's waters.
