The new T-Rack® Vario from inge watertechnologies is an ultra-compact rack system which features feed and drain pipes integrated in the end caps of the modules. The filtrate connections are welded to the module bodies and headers and there are no O-rings. All the flanges of the header pipes are mounted in the same plane. The modules can be arranged in either two or four rows and each row can be operated as a separate filtration line. This concept offers flexibility and helps keep investment and operating costs to a minimum.

With environmental concerns having increased importance, the Shand & Jurs Expanda-Seal offers an unique advantage for weight/spring loaded conservation and emergency vents. The patented design allows pressure to build up on both sides of the seat ring, allowing the diaphragm to balloon around the seat ring. The company’s Expanda-Seal pallets are tested to 0.5 SCFH or less of air at 95% of the set point, which significantly reduces emissions and odors.

Level, volume measurement
The Magnetrol® Environmental Model R82 is a loop-powered, 26 GHz through-air radar transmitter that is ideal for the many level and volume measurement applications found at water and wastewater facilities. The transmitter is virtually unaffected by foam, turbulence, mist, fog, insects, or condensation. It outperforms ultrasonic units, yet is very price competitive.
Wireless digital control
Rotork will exhibit the Pakscan P3 modular control system at WEFTEC 2011. The system offers water and wastewater treatment plants the capability to establish a wireless communication network with Rotork valve actuators throughout their facilities. The wireless capability operates on the 2.4GHz frequency and has a line-of-site operating range of approximately 70 meters indoors and 1000 meters outdoors.

The heart of the Jerome® H2S monitor from Arizona Instrument is the Gold Film Sensing Technology. A thin gold film, in the presence of hydrogen sulfide, undergoes an increase in electrical resistance proportional to the mass of hydrogen sulfide in the sample. When the sample button is pressed, an internal pump pulls ambient air over the gold film sensor for a precise period of time.

The Tideflex® Mixing System (TMS) greatly improves the quality of drinking water in finished water storage reservoirs. The TMS is a combination of patented Tideflex Check Valve technology and a piping manifold that separates the inlet and outlet. The system can be installed in new or existing water storage tanks of all shapes and sizes to eliminate stagnation and short-circuiting. Operating on the differential pressure that is already in place, the mixing system keeps energy costs low, while the all-elastomer construction of the check valve renders the system virtually maintenance free.
