New products involved in the water industry
Water level datalogger
The Levelogger Edge from Solinst is an accurate water level and temperature datalogger that provides water professionals with a compact method of recording uninterrupted, long-term data. It uses a Hastelloy pressure sensor that performs well in high-stress environments, providing 0.05% FS accuracy. It features a stainless steel housing with titanium-based PVD coating for extra corrosion protection. Its battery lasts up to 10 years.

Assmann’s Full Drain Outlet (FDO) assembly drains tanks of 2,500 gallons and larger without mechanically installed nozzles, while Assmann’s double wall tanks, from 20 to 8,850 U.S. gallons, eliminate chemical spills without the expense of lined concrete containment. A heavier-top sidewall and dome prevent dome collapse, while a primary inner tank and a secondary locked-on outer tank protects against chemical spills.

Organica Biotech’s Bioclean is an elixir of probiotic agents which can effectively aid in industrial wastewater treatment, septic tank management, anaerobic digestion, sewage treatment, lake/pond remediation and FOG bioremediation. This technology is an outcome of extensive research that improves the overall quality of treated wastewater. Application of these products results in lowered sludge volumes, odor management and a reduction in overall operational and chemical costs.
Sensor cube for SAC measurement
The SAC sensor cube for SAC assessment with the Bürkert online analysis system provides an important analysis parameter for water preparation. It automatically conducts an optofluidic measurement of the water sample, including all calculations, averaging and corrections and transmits the result - the SAC value of the water - to the EDIP (efficient device integration platform), which enables intelligent networking of all electronic Bürkert devices. The sensor consists of a lamp module with a Xenon flash lamp, a spectroscope and the electronics with integrated software. The software independently induces measuring cycles once the sensor is connected.

Mobile fleet management
NexTraq® View™ is a new supervisor mobile application that provides customers the power of real-time productivity and enhances supervisors’ visibility of their fleet assets. With View, supervisors are able to access important fleet data while in the field and have direct access to the mapping and monitoring capabilities of the NexTraq Fleet Tracking solution. The NexTraq View native application delivers full supervisor functionality. Users will be able to improve customer satisfaction through increased operational effectiveness, enhance visibility over real-time location of mobile workers, increase efficiency and improve productivity. NexTraq View complements the current driver mobile application NexTraq Connect™ and seamlessly fits in with the award-winning NexTraq platform.
Asahi/America’s Pro-Vent® duct system is specifically designed for ventilation and exhaust systems that transport corrosive fumes. Pro-Vent® provides increased performance over other systems due to its chemical resistance, mechanical properties, solid construction, and ease of installation. Pro-Vent® pipe and fittings are joined by either hot air or extrusion welding and do not require additional cure time after they are fully cooled. Available in five materials: polypropylene (PP), polypropylene self-extinguishing (PPs), polypropylene self-extinguishing electroconductive (PPs-el), polyethylene (PE), and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), Pro-Vent® is ideal for applications in water treatment facilities, electroplating shops, semiconductor wet stations, and pharmaceutical processing.
Rapid enzyme test
Modern Water has recently launched the QuickChek™ Atrazine, a rapid enzyme immunoassay strip test that produces results in just 10 minutes and is ideal for detecting atrazine in both drinking water and environmental water samples. It has excellent analytical precision with a detection range from just 0.75 ppb to 10 ppb. This technology saves operators and laboratories both time and resources when compared to costly analytical instrumentation that can take over an hour to achieve results. This enables plant operators to take faster corrective action when atrazine levels spike.
The Chlor-Scale 150® from Force Flow provides a simple and reliable way to monitor the amount of chlorine or ammonia used, and the amount remaining in the cylinder. The solid PVC scale platform, with a 5-year warranty, provides the strongest defense against the corrosive environments associated with gas feed applications. Optional pedestal stand eliminates wall mounting.
The e-SV range of stainless steel vertical multistage pumps comes with newly designed hydraulics and EISA-compliant motor for maximum efficiency in municipal and water treatment applications. The e-SV’s design allows removal of the mechanical seal without having to detach the motor, reducing repair time by up to 50%. A reduced impeller axial thrust ensures longer standard motor bearing life, and hard material intermediate bush bearing increases the pump’s ability to withstand heavy-duty applications. The e-SV boasts a high flow head up to 1,200 feet and flow rates up of 725 gallons per minute. Its optional patented i-ALERT™ monitor continuously measures the pump’s vibration to reduce damage and support optimum performance.

Chlorine emergency shutoff
The Gemini® Emergency Shutoff System adds a new level of safety to your gas chlorine feed system. Designed specifically for dual 150-lb chlorine cylinder applications, the Gemini System, with its two Terminator® actuators, stops a chlorine leak within seconds of detection by automatically closing the cylinder valves. The actuators are simply placed on top of the valves and protection begins. Recognized by all fire codes as an acceptable alternative to a scrubber.
Doors and barriers from PS DOORS keep workers, facilities and the environment safe from spills. The PS DOORS Bottom Hinge Barrier is automatically triggered by a spill and quickly pivots up to protect facilities (it can be deployed passively, electronically or manually). It is self-stored and always in place. It can even be connected to an existing alarm system. Because the door is self-stored within a floor surface, it allows personnel or vehicles to use the opening while the barrier is not deployed.
Heterotrophic plate count testing
Hach® has released a new Peel Plate® Heterotrophic Plate Count (HPC) test that dramatically simplifies heterotrophic plate count testing. No media preparation is required. The user simply peels open the test, pipets the sample, seals the test and incubates. In order to perform the test without agar, the Peel Plate HPC test has all of the media located on the pad in each peel plate. The user is quickly able to perform an HPC test on demand without preparing an entire batch of agar. Plus, if the user only needs to perform a few tests, extra media is no longer wasted.
Airmaster Aerator’s new 25 hp Turbo X-Treme IAT is a powerful, new, high-efficiency infusion aeration technology aerator, designed to provide wastewater treatment plants with maximum mixing and raised dissolved oxygen levels while providing significant energy savings. The new aerator is a high-efficiency, floating/surface aerator that can pump 5,000,000 gallons of water per day. In operation, the aerator disrupts the molecular structure of the wastewater and infuses air into it. The air-infused wastewater is then discharged from both sides of the aerator and mixed from the top of the basin to the bottom, creating a complete mix of air-infused wastewater without increasing the temperature.

Variable frequency drives
The new SubDrive Connect and MonoDrive Connect families of variable frequency drives from Franklin Electric provide constant water pressure throughout the chosen location. The family incorporates the new 5 hp SubDrive50 Connect model, the only constant pressure drive of its type that will run a 3 hp, single-phase motor. The drives feature a NEMA 3R (Type 3) enclosure rated for both indoor and outdoor use, providing a degree of protection against falling rain or sleet. Additionally, Wi-Fi capability through the FE Connect mobile app is a convenient way to set up and configure the drives.
