Tank Connection is a global provider of storage containment systems. The company provides assistance at every stage of a project. Its dedicated site for liquid storage, www.liquidtanks.com, has tools that make it possible to select and specify a tank in less than five minutes.
WesTech’s Zickert Shark™ Sludge Scraper provides a solution for sludge scraping in rectangular basins. They are a good fit with lamella plate clarifiers. The system is based on the forward and return movement of hydrodynamically designed profiles. The concave faces of the profiles transport the sediment like a plow toward a sludge sump or other sludge withdrawal point.
Using peristaltic pumping, Watson-Marlow’s system delivers metering accuracy of ± 1%. There are no back pressure regulators or de-gassing valves required and maintenance is a simple one-minute tube change. The company’s Chemical Metering Systems provide customers a turnkey wall or floor mounted solution for precision metering - including the pumps, valves, pressure relief, gauges, calibration column, leak detection and all interface pipe work.
The AquaMB Process® multiple barrier membrane system uses true batch biological treatment with cloth media filtration and external ultra-filtration membranes to provide enhanced biological nutrient removal, and virus and bacteria removal for reuse applications.

Remote telemetry units from Telog Instruments collect and transmit data wirelessly to a municipality’s water management operations center. Once the data arrives, Telogers Enterprise 5.0 information management system makes it accessible in real time, allowing technicians to review data in a few minutes. The RTUs operate on a 6V lantern battery with a life of up to two years.
Designed for public utilities and professional contractors cleaning storm lines, the Vactor 2100 Plus features increased vacuum performance and improvements to operator comfort and control. Smart Truck concept features integrated on the sewer cleaner include internal monitoring systems that enable the operator to monitor and troubleshoot flow and pressure, blower temperature and oil level, drive system idle and open vacuum relief.
Val-Matic Valve & Mfg. Corp. offers an array of shut-off valves including Cam-Centric® Plug Valves, American-BFV® Butterfly Valves and Ener•G® AWWA Resilient Seated Ball Valves. Cam-Centric® Plug Valves include features such as a fully encapsulated plug, welded nickel seat, Grit Guard™ Seals to protect the valve shaft, bearings and seals, V-Type packing, and Packing Overload Protection (POP™) shims to protect packing from being overloaded during adjustment.

Wastewater treatment system
Orenco’s® new AdvanTex® AX-Max™ is a modular, fully-plumbed wastewater treatment plant capable of handling flows from 5000 gpd to 1 mgd. The systems feature a packed bed filter technology using textile media. The systems are built inside an insulated fiberglass tank that is durable, lightweight, and watertight. It can be installed above- or below-ground, singly or in multi-tank arrays.
Orival has re-designed four filters in its ORG line of filtration products. The new 1½”, 2”, 3” and 4” filters are now labeled as ORG/A filters and are designed specifically to conserve rinse water. The filters use up to 90% less water than conventional automatic self-cleaning screen filters. The automatic self-cleaning filters are available in sizes from 1½” to 10”.
OMI Industries manufactures safe and natural odor neutralizing products. Its Ecosorb® formula has been successful in municipal settings dealing with year-round malodor problems. Ideal for odors generated in varying degrees throughout the wastewater treatment process, including those associated with pump stations, head works, clarifiers, digesters, aeration basins, lagoons and sludge handling areas, the odor control system can be used to strategically manage smells.
Water level monitoring
Solinst has introduced the new Model 101 Water Level Meter with P7 Probe and durable PVDF flat tape. The thicker, dog bone tape design reduces adherence to well casings and tank walls, while tensile strength and electrical efficiency have increased with the use of 19 strands of stainless steel in each tape conductor, six of them copper coated.

Wago’s 750-880 “Ethernet 2.0” Programmable Fieldbus Controller packs 1MB data memory and SD port for up to 8GB of extra memory. It provides high-frequency processing — up to 1000 instructions within 235ms — for demanding utilities.
Gas flow monitoring
The new ST100 Series Thermal Mass Flow Meter from Fluid Components International combines improved flow sensing performance with feature-rich electronics. It measures gas mass flow rate, total flow, temperature and pressure depending on the model family. The ST100 stores up to five unique calibration groups to accommodate broad flow ranges, differing mixtures of the same gas and multiple gases, and obtains up to 1000:1 turndown.

With its hydraulic loading capacity and high solids storage, Schreiber’s compressible media Fuzzy Filter has been demonstrated to perform in CSO applications. Starting with a 1995 installation at the EPA’s CSO Advanced Demonstration Facility in Columbus, GA, Schreiber has been at the forefront of the CSO/SSO/Wet Weather market. From standard fabricated vessels for small applications to application-specific concrete designs for larger filter applications.
The Pratt Ballcentric® Plug Valve, available in sizes ranging from 1/2” – 72”, is designed specifically for wastewater applications. The round port design available on sizes 1/2” through 12” offers the least resistance to slurry, sludge, and fluid flow, resulting in less erosion, longer service life, and reduced pumping costs. Round port valves offer the best flow characteristics compared to alternative port openings, resulting in less pressure drop across the valve.
