Chemical metering pump

Click here to enlarge image

Watson-Marlow Bredel offers its new 323 pump, which is ideal for chemical metering. The pumps can handle harsh chemicals such as sodium hypochlorite, ferric chloride, alum, sodium bi-sulfite, caustic, aqueous ammonia, polymer, and many others. In addition, the pump will not vapor lock from hypochlorite off-gassing. Because the pump's tube is the only replacement part, tube change-over can be completed in three seconds, making the pump virtually maintenance-free. A typical pump rebuild costs less than $15. The pump is reversible, offers turndown ratios of 20,000:1, and requires no pulsation dampeners, strainers, or back pressure valves.

Red Valve's new Weirflex was designed for combined sewer systems (CSO's) and is a variation on the proven pinch valve principal. By closing from the bottom only, a weir is created that is used to control the rate of flow within a sewer line. This allows the user to maximize existing stormwater storage within the lines and prevent treatment plants from being over burdened, which leads to unwanted overflow events.
