Flygt A-C Series NS Pumps feature a “Dynamic Seal” that seals by opposing discharge pressure, thus eliminating the need for mechanical seals. The seal requires no external flush water or accompanying pump controller to start and stop the flow of water. This feature equals a savings in both energy and natural resources which in turn translates to decreased Life Cycle Cost of ownership. Also, no metal-to-metal rubbing parts and no critical operating clearances mean a significantly longer product life. NS Pumps require very little suction pressure and are not prone to cavitation thus ensuring lengthy bearing life. The pumps are suited for pumping RAS, WAS, filtrate, backwash, and digester feed.

PE pipe joining system
Due to both the growing use and demand of polyethylene pipe in waterworks and the need for better and faster connections between polyethylene pipes and other pipe materials, Suiken has introduced its Non-Bolt Jointing System for Polyethylene Pipes. The system’s non-bolt feature makes it easy to use and fast to assemble. An inner pipe stiffener is inserted inside the polyethylene pipe side of the joint and then it is bulged. This deformation causes the stiffener and polyethylene pipe to contour to the shape of the interior of the casting joint. The joint has high restraining force, and there is no need for accessories such as retainer rings, bolts and gaskets. It is also can be used in a variety of connections like flanged fittings, socket and spigot ends as well as valve connections.
