Mobile water treatment
Recently recognized by the Wall Street Journal in the 2010 Technology Innovation Awards, the Water Phoenix, produced by Active Water Sciences, is a patented new wastewater treatment system that offers promise in virtually any scenario where clean water is a priority -- including disaster relief and municipal wastewater cleanup efforts. Based on a continuous flow technology, the system uses special bacteria to convert wastewater into EPA standard water, producing little to no sludge. Portable and scalable, the system can be fully functional within a matter of hours, can provide clean water within 24 hours after setup, can operate virtually autonomously and be monitored remotely.

Schneider Electric has released the new Enclosed Altistart™ 22 soft start/soft stop motor controller. The new product includes an integrated circuit breaker disconnect and soft starter in a stand-alone enclosure. These new solid-state combination motor controllers provide a pre-engineered, integrated solution which helps to reduce voltage starting and soft stopping of standard three-phase asynchronous induction motors. The controllers include integrated bypass functions, which reduce the number of external components, such as power wiring, contactor, and control wiring for coil, while also decreasing heat dissipation and allowing for a smaller enclosure. The controllers are suited for horsepower ratings up to 125 hp at 480V.
