New products involved in the water industry
Peristaltic metering pumps
Proseries-M® M-3 and M-4 NSF 61 listed peristaltic metering pumps are designed for use in mid- to high-volume municipal water and wastewater treatment applications. Proseries-M® units are compatible with the most commonly used chemicals in these applications, such as sodium hypochlorite and hydrogen peroxide. The pumps have a no-maintenance, brushless, variable speed motor and a 10,000:1 turndown ratio, with high resolution motor speed adjustment. Additional benefits include: operator friendly digital touch pad; high contrast backlit LCD; NEMA 4X/IP 66 rated for wash down; exclusive built-in patented tube failure detection system; and a heavy single piece rotor for accuracy.
Newark Wire Cloth’s SaniWedge wire screens adhere to ISO 9001:2008, AS91 OOc and NADCAP standards. Retentions are available to 400 mesh (.0015”) and screens are 3A approved for sanitary use to retentions of .005”. SaniWedge is manufactured using a triangular surface wire that creates a non-clogging filter surface. It is abrasive resistant, mechanically strong and rigid and maintains its shape and integrity under pressure. Ideal applications include: basket strainers, resin traps, vessel internals, laterals, collectors and distributors, filter nozzles, media retention screens (including ion exchange, sand and activated carbon), and more.

Magnetic water meter
Sensus’ iPERL® smart water meters reduce non-revenue water and are purposefully designed to capture both lost water and lost revenue. Delivering low-flow accuracy with high-flow durability, the magnetic technology captures previously unmeasured low flow. With no moving parts, iPERL maintains its accuracy over a 20-year lifetime and is equipped with smart water alarms.
Digital electric actuator
GF Piping Systems introduces a thermoplastic industry breakthrough with the new, completely digital Electric Actuator Series Type EA25-250. These compact actuators feature all solid state electronics and powerful functionality that includes limit switches, optical position indicator with LED status monitoring, middle position, and more. The new actuators can automate a wide range of ball and butterfly valves in numerous applications. Designed specifically to operate valves with a rotating angle from 90° to 180°, the new EA Series delivers nominal torques ranging from 10 to 100 Nm and peak torques ranging from 25 to 250 Nm.
GF Piping Systems
The DataGrabber is a simple, portable device that transfers data from Solinst Levelogger water level dataloggers in the field to a USB memory key. The DataGrabber uses one 9V battery to operate. It features one push-button operation, and an LED light to indicate status. The DataGrabber connects to the top of a Direct Read Cable or directly to the Levelogger using an Adaptor.

Wastewater air valves
Val-Matic’s full line of Wastewater Air Valves perform two important functions in a piping system: they maintain system design efficiency and provide system protection. Exhausting and admitting air keeps the system from restricted flow, reducing pumping costs and the potential for destructive surges and water hammer that can collapse a pipeline. Wastewater Air Valves have unconditionally guaranteed 316 stainless steel floats and internal trim, fusion bonded epoxy coating to minimize the buildup of sewage, and a non-clog design with a 2” clean out connection to facilitate the passage of solids for reduced maintenance.
Tie rod design
Proco Products has developed an Integral Tie Rod (ITR) design with a demounting feature to be used on applications requiring retraction of an expansion joint away from the pump (or valve). This feature helps facilitate scheduled maintenance of adjacent equipment. The ITR design also eliminates concerns with pump casing interference issues when installing standard triangular rod plates and also concerns of pressure thrust forces being transmitted to the backside of the pump mating flange. The ITR’s are designed to meet current pressure ratings of the Proco 230 Series.

THM removal system
The GridBee In-Tank Floating THM Removal System (TRS) from Medora helps you achieve more THM removal with less energy and provides all the benefits of complete floor-to-surface mixing in your storage tanks and clearwells. Fits any tank size, any flow rate and can be integrated with no disruption in service.
Ultrasonic distance and level sensors
OMEGA’s LVTX-10 Series close range ultrasonic distance and level sensors are low-profile-designed ultrasonic transmitter modules optimized to provide continuous measurement of fluids, pastes, or uneven solid bulk materials in constrained working zones. Incorporating state-of-the-art dual-sensor ultrasonic technology and processing algorithms, all LVTX-10 sensors provide accurate measurement for factory automation, warehouse materials control, pipe and conveyor belt blockage, or tank level applications with non-uniform surfaces.
PHOENIX has partnered with SCI to offer the PHOENIX/SCI Horizontal Decanter Centrifuge for continuous liquid-solid separation through centrifugal sedimentation and decanting. The centrifuge provides a compact and efficient dewatering solution for sludge processing needs.
