Fire service fittings

The Mueller® Residential Fire Service Fitting saves time and cuts the potential for leakage when installing residential fire service and domestic supply lines on one meter. It includes everything needed to make the connection in an integrated "uni-cast" bronze body. There's no assembly of separate valves and fittings involved. The fitting has a 1" lockable angle ball valve to control the domestic side without interrupting flow to the fire line. The meter connection can accommodate 1" or full ¾" meters. Its two 1" outlet connections can be ordered with integral Mueller 110® Compression, pack joint or FIP connections.

Diffused air

Otterbine Barebo has expanded its Air Flo 2 diffused air system product line by releasing 2-dome and 1-dome diffuser manifold options to the original 4-dome option. The new manifolds allow creation of modular systems that can be adapted to suit the depth and aeration requirements of lakes and ponds. The new diffusers are offered in self-cleaning varieties and as Traditional Air Stone Diffusers. The systems are suitable for operating depths to 40 feet and include a shore mounted cabinet that provides quiet operation and simplified servicing.

Check valve

The CheckMate® Inline Check Valve is ideal for backflow prevention and odor mitigation. In outfalls, stormwater, CSO and SSO applications, the valve's custom-engineered, all-rubber unibody design eliminates backflow from oceans, rivers and interceptors. Its elastomer fabric-reinforced design provides extremely low headloss. The valve can open to a near full pipe diameter. This maximizes the flow capacity of the outfall, which is particularly beneficial in low-lying areas where limited driving head is available. The valves are available in 4" to 72" sizes.

Packaged treatment system

The AlgaePac™ Packaged Wastewater Treatment System, available from Oldcastle Precast, provides low-energy tertiary treatment. Featuring Algaewheel® technology, the system combines algal and bacteriological processes in a controlled symbiotic relationship for expanded treatment. Nutrients in the wastewater are converted directly to algae, a plant grown through photosynthesis, while consuming carbon dioxide and producing oxygen. Algae biomass generated from the system is a renewable biomass source for biofuel production, cogeneration, fertilizer, or it can be digested.

Centrifugally cast pipe

Hobas pipe's high strength-to-weight ratio, smooth surface and flush, push-together joints are ideal for sliplining. Superior hydraulic characteristics provide maximum flow recovery. Smaller installation pits and longer pushes minimize surface disruption. The centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced, polymer mortar pipe is inherently corrosion resistant and has a life expectancy of 100 years or more. The pipe has been used in new construction and rehab for critical installations including storm and sanitary sewers, potable water and corrosive environments. In addition to sliplining, it is ideal for a variety of installation methods including open cut, jacking, microtunneling, two-pass tunnel, casing carrier and above ground. Pipe diameters range from 18" to 110" for both pressure and gravity applications.

Thermoplastic pump

Vanton's Sump-Gard® model SGK-2700 thermoplastic centrifugal pump handles flows to 1200 gpm at heads to 200 ft, making it ideal for fume scrubbers and other applications in which caustic and acidic chemicals are transferred. All wetted components are molded of solid polypropylene, PVDF or CPVC to eliminate chemical attack associated with pumping of aggressive chemicals while minimizing abrasion. The alloy shaft, which is isolated from fluid contact by a thick-sectioned thermoplastic sleeve, transfers torque from a 125 hp motor and can employ a balanced 14" diameter impeller.

The pump's large diameter cantilevered shaft eliminates the necessity for any immersed bearings and permits operation for short or extended periods of dry run with no damage to the pump.
