WEFTEC Exhibitor Products: Part 7
LaMotte has introduced the waterproof version of its 2020 Turbidimeter. The new 2020we is a portable handheld that can be used in the field or lab. The unit is rated waterproof to IP67 and features lithium rechargeable batteries, a backlit display, USB port and seven language options. The meter complies with the EPA 180.1 standard using a tungsten light source protected by a unique waterproof chamber with a removable cup. Reading a full range of 0 – 4000 the instrument displays as NTU and AU units so analysts can test without performing dilutions unless required by the method.
PVCO pressure pipe
JM Eagle’s Ultra Blue PVCO pressure pipe is suited for potable water and force main systems. Molecularly oriented for a wall that’s four times stronger than conventional PVC at half the thickness, it also features a larger interior diameter for improved performance. The pipe is crush resistant, non-corroding, durable and leak-resistant, and it is pressure tested to meet HDB of 7,100 psi.
Digital meters, probes
Hach HQd™ meters and probes are designed specifically for water applications and incorporate cutting edge smart technology.

The Hach NITRATAX™ sc UV Nitrate analyzer incorporates breakthrough technology for in-situ continuous nitrate analysis. Using advanced ultraviolet (UV) absorption technology, it offers simplicity and accuracy in nitrate analysis. By continuously measuring the UV light absorbed by nitrates, the instrument eliminates the need for reagents, sample conditioning and frequent calibrations.
Campbell Scientific’s new OBS500 dual turbidity probe with antifouling combines a backscatter sensor (better at measuring high turbidity) with a second sidescatter sensor (better at measuring lower turbidity) and multiple antifouling methods to provide accurate measurements in biologically active water. One probe covers a broad range of NTU values used in a variety of common municipal applications.
VibrAlign has launched a new wireless shaft alignment tool, the Fixturlaser GO Pro, with an adaptive and time saving user interface. The new system comes with the Verti-Zontal Compound Move function that simplifies adjustment. If the shaft alignment is out of tolerance, the tool first suggests how to correct the alignment vertically, i.e. the screen shows the shims by size required to add or remove in order to achieve a precision shaft alignment.
Advanced metering analytics
Badger Meter has launched an Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) solution designed for the unique needs of water and gas utilities. The system incorporates mobile and fixed network reading capabilities along with a host of automated utility management tools to further increase utility productivity and revenue. It is comprised of ReadCenter® Analytics software coupled with new Orion® SE two-way fixed network technology, which is complemented by a family of meters and encoders.
Blue-White Industries’ BW Digi-Meter® F-2000 Series digital paddlewheel insertion style flowmeters are well suited for monitoring flow in water and wastewater applications. The clamp on saddle fitting and insertion sensor is quickly installed on IPS (ASTM-D-1785) pipe sizes from 1 1/2” through 12” and metric (DIN 8062) pipe sizes from 50mm through 315mm.
Glass lined tanks
With over 50 years experience, Fusion Tanks & Silos offers glass lined tanks and silos for the wastewater and potable water sectors. Over 300,000 tanks and silos have been installed worldwide. The Fusion Glass Lined Tank modular design and build concept offers numerous benefits and is certified to NSF/ANSI 61. In 2008 a 3 million gallon Fusion® tank was installed in Florida storing reuse water making this tank one of the largest Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks in the USA.

The new TrojanUVSigna™ system is suited for providing UV disinfection at wastewater treatment plants. The system incorporates revolutionary innovations including TrojanUVSolo Lamp™ Technology, to reduce the total cost of ownership and simplify operation and maintenance. It is ideal for large facilities wanting to upgrade their disinfection system or convert from chlorine.
Bredel heavy-duty SPX hose pumps are suited for challenging environmental applications such as sludge handling, filter press/centrifuge feed and lime and carbon slurries. Advanced hose technology allows the pump to handle grit-filled sludge dependably and reliably. The highly abrasive nature of sludge does not affect pump life.

The Duperon® Perforated Plate brings simplicity and reliability to Ultra Screening. Through the cleaning power of Hydropression™, the company is able to effectively clear a static screen while using patented FlexLink™ technology. Just like the Duperon® FlexRake®, the Perforated Plate operates without submerged bearings, bushings or sprockets – ensuring reliable screening with little maintenance in even the harshest environments.
Rotary fan press
The Rotary Fan Press from Prime Solution uses continuous pressure and a rotational speed of less than 1 rpm to dewater sludge and slurries. The system is enclosed, automated, low maintenance, has a long service life and is energy efficient. It is also portable and expandable. Several capacities are available to meet flow applications of all sizes. The compact design simplifies installation.
