Remote monitoring

The Link2Sitesm cellular- and Internet-based system from Siemens Water Technologies is a new way of controlling, monitoring and enhancing pumping station and lift station equipment and facilities. The system uses cellular networks to provide a secure, easy-to-install and fully functional SCADA solution. The system is designed to be a totally integrated solution suitable for use as a stand-alone system or for incorporation into an existing system.

Pipeline inspection

The new DigiSewer III side-scan system for pipe inspection uses improved illumination and optics to capture sidewall detail with enhanced clarity. With side-scanning, inspection personnel no longer need to detect defects in live video, and then stop to investigate further. Instead, the system captures detailed visual data for the entire pipe at speeds of 35 to 70 fpm, and then presents multiple views (side, forward, thumbnail and virtual 3D) that can be analyzed offline.

Progressing cavity pumps

The new Moyno® Mag Drive 500 Series progressing cavity wobble stator pumps are equipped with magnetic drives. The sealless drive design provides zero leakage for the most critical applications. These pumps can handle toxic, aggressive, caustic or even flammable and explosive fluids. The pumps offer pulsation-free, low shear pumping action. Four models are available with flow rates from 0.1 to 900 gph. Skid mounted, turnkey systems are available.

Chlorine analysis

The Hach CL17 Chlorine Analyzer uses colorimetric DPD chemistry to monitor water continuously for free or total residual chlorine which is the same method (Standard Method 4500-Cl G) as used for grab samples. This analysis method is not affected by changes in sample pH, temperature, chlorine concentration (within the measurement range), pressure or flow, thus offering more accuracy than other methods in the market today.

Data radio

Control Microsystems, a Schneider Electric company, has released the Trio ER45e data radio, the latest model in the Ethernet E-Series family of licensed radios. The radios are designed to increase IP communication network reliability and coverage while reducing the cost of deployment and ongoing management. They provide both Ethernet and serial connectivity for the most complex and demanding requirements in Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint (Multiple Address Radio) SCADA and telemetry applications in licensed 450MHz band.

Sodium hypochlorite

The OSEC® B-Pak on-site electrolytic chlorination system from Siemens generates a 0.8% solution through electrolysis of brine -- consuming only water, salt and electricity. Due to the low concentration, the system minimizes corrosion and degradation issues typical of higher strength commercial solutions. In addition, the system exhibits lower operating costs than commercial hypochlorite.

Seawater dechlorination

The new Model DCA-23 Seawater Dechlorination Analyzer from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) is a low maintenance measurement solution that requires no chemicals to monitor seawater chlorine levels accurately in municipal water treatment applications. The single-purpose analyzer monitors chlorine in seawater from 0.0 to 2.00 ppm. It measures the pH, temperature and Total Residual Oxidant (TRO) of seawater and converts them into an equivalent ppm chlorine value, which is displayed to conform with existing conventions.

Valves

Ooval’s line of corrosion-resistant valves, available from Amiad, are used worldwide in stormwater management applications, ensuring smooth flow in treatment systems and stormwater capture/discharge installations. Cast in polyester-coated steel or corrosion-proof plastic, the unique curve of the valve chamber doubles flow and reduces cavitation and water hammer.

SCADA software

GE Intelligent Platforms has released the Proficy® for Water InfoCenter, part of GE’s “Intelligent Water” initiative. It brings together Proficy HMI/SCADA - iFIX visualization, embedded Proficy Historian, web publishing capability with Proficy WebSpace, and more than 250 water-specific dynamos. The system provides insight into resources by optimizing field workforce, fixed assets and plant operations with a task relative information environment, conveyance by leveraging buffer capacity, reducing pump station energy consumption, and limiting non-revenue water with improved information visualization, and treatment by mitigating increasing energy consumption during treatment with smart plant management of pumping and chemicals.

Chromium detection

ITT Analytics’ WTW and OI Analytical instrument brands offer a range of measurement options for the detection of the hexavalent chromium (chromium VI) in drinking water supplies. The WTW pHotoFlex Photometer offers a simple portable lab while the pHotoLab 6100 VIS research grade spectrophotometer offers flexibility while minimizing bench space. Chemistry test kits are available in a variety of sensitivity levels and meet the current EPA chromium VI detection limits. The OI Analytical DA 3500 discrete analyzer measures multiple analytes (e.g. chromium VI, phosphate, and nitrite) concurrently, allowing samples to be analyzed immediately upon receipt in the laboratory. This colorimetric chemistry analyzer enables drinking water facilities to analyze samples for chromium VI within 24 hours as required by the U.S. EPA.
