Aquionics specializes in the manufacture and distribution of medium pressure UV systems for both municipal drinking water and wastewater applications.
Aquionics specializes in the manufacture and distribution of medium pressure UV systems for both municipal drinking water and wastewater applications. By emitting UV over a wide range of the spectrum, the lamps damage a wide range of intracellular molecules, such as enzymes, in addition to DNA. This broad damage permanently inactivates the cells’ DNA repair mechanisms.

Chlorine residual analyzer
The new Eagle Model RP-1000 Chlorine Residual Analyzer provides the accuracy of amperometric measurement with the convenience and reduced maintenance of a probe-type device for reduced installation and maintenance costs and simplified system startup. The measuring element is an amperometric membrane probe that can be provided for measurement of either free or total chlorine residual. The instrument provides an isolated 4-20 mA output for remote indication, recording or data logging, and up to four user-configurable alarms. The probe is mounted in a flow-through assembly having an integral flow meter and valve for maintaining sample flow at an optimum rate.

Free chlorine measurement
With the introduction of the Rosemount Analytical Model FCLi, Emerson Process Management now offers pH-independent free chlorine measurement. With the new meter, the pH adjustment occurs inside the sensor, producing a reading that changes less than 5% per unit change in pH. The meter can measure free chlorine in water having pH as high as 10.0. The linear range of the sensor is 0 to 20 ppm (mg/L).

Residual chlorine meter
Extech Instruments now offers a new offset adjustment feature for its ExStik® Total Residual Chlorine Meter, Model CL200. The meter’s reading in ppm can now be precisely adjusted to match the value of a known standard or to agree with previously established references. The meter monitors Total Chlorine Residual which includes free chlorine and/or chlorine bound to nitrogenous compounds, (chloramines).
Hydro Instruments’ V-RAD (Vacuum - Revolving Automatic Doser) is designed to meter low feed rates of liquid chemicals, such as sodium hypochlorite. The chemical is fed under vacuum, which eliminates all pressurized chemical lines. The chemical passes through a fixed-diameter orifice in shortly spaced intermittent pulses (allowing a larger orifice to be used). The dramatic pressure gradient across the orifice eliminates the concern of vapor locking. Most importantly, the feed direction through the orifice is reversed every 15 seconds. In this manner, the device is self-cleaning. The orifice is preceded by a “pocket”, which serves to carry any large solids around the orifice.

Emergency shutoff system
Halogen Valve’s HexaconTM Model II control system quickly closes up to six EclipseTM actuators on toxic gas cylinder and ton container valves when activated by panic buttons or remote gas sensors. The newly designed Model II computer system applies 30 foot-pounds of torque for test closures and 50 foot-pounds of torque for emergency closures of the cylinder valve. The system can provide a SCADA network with actuator closure status and error codes to quickly analyze any problems and take the appropriate corrective action.

Miox offers mid-size generators ranging in capacity from 25-200 pounds FAC per day. The systems are modular and can be coupled together for even more capacity and redundancy. With the new cell design, a customer will be able to expand capacity within the same enclosure. Redundancy can be achieved with multiple cells, so that any single unit can be taken off line for maintenance without impacting performance of the other units.

Taste, odor control
Applied Process Technology has announced the availability of HiPOx Plus, a waste-free Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) that targets taste and odor issues in drinking water. The system combines ozone and hydrogen peroxide to form hydroxyl radicals, aggressive oxidants that react chemically with taste and odor compounds. The process simultaneously removes a wide range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and micro-contaminants as well.

Hypochlorite generating sys.
Severn Trent Services has been designing, manufacturing, installing, operating and servicing ClorTecTM On-site Sodium Hypochlorite Generating Systems since 1988. The company recently introduced a new skid-mounted system. The new system integrates the company’s on-site generation technology into a pre-packaged design that can be installed and producing hypochlorite in less than one day. The on-site hypochlorite systems range in capacity from 6 to 3000 pounds per day, generating an 0.8% sodium hypochlorite solution by combining three common consumables: salt, water, and electricity, to produce a chlorine equivalent.

The OSEC® On-Site Electrolytic Chlorination system from Siemens Water Technologies is widely used in drinking and wastewater disinfection applications. The system produces sodium hypochlorite on-site and on-demand from salt, water and electricity. This eliminates the transport, handling and storage difficulties associated with commercial sodium hypochlorite or chlorine gas. The system can also significantly lower operating costs. Operation is completely automatic, making the system ideally suited for remote or unmanned locations. Standard capacity systems are available from 12 to 2,000 pounds per day.
