Krohne has introduced the Waterflux 3070, a new electromagnetic meter with a 15-year battery life for applications in the water and wastewater industry. The new meter includes an optional GSM module for remote transmission of measurement data and status information. Thanks to extremely short inlet and outlet installation requirements, the meter can be installed in very narrow wells and chambers. A magnetic-inductive meter, it is accurate and stable, and features a lower pressure drop than comparable mechanical water meters. It does not require filters and needs no cleaning.

Check valve

Click here to enlarge image

The TF-1 Curved Bill Tideflex® Check Valve is designed with enhanced sealing to improve headloss across the valve. The valve is constructed entirely of rubber, making it immune to rust, corrosion and weathering. The new design enables the check valve to handle long-term water weight and maintain its structural integrity. The spine is at a greater vertical angle, allowing the valve to withstand the cantilever effect when water is flowing through the valve.

Flex-Seal Utility Sealant® is a plural component aromatic urethane with an 800% elongation and a tensile strength of 3200 psi. It is designed to prevent inflow/infiltration and to provide corrosion protection at the grade adjustment ring section or joint section. The sealant provides an excellent seal and will pass a vacuum test according to ASTM standards. The internal seal is manually applied using a paint brush and the kit is designed to cover 12 vertical inches on a 27” diameter manhole.

Optical DO sensor

ATI has recently added a low maintenance Optical Dissolved Oxygen Sensor to its lineup of traditional membraned DO sensors. Optical sensors do not require changing of electrolyte, membranes or lead anodes and can operate in processes where there is zero flow across the sensor. ATI offers an optional “air blast” sensor cleaning system, which when used with the optical sensor will provide years of maintenance free operation.

Eaton’s Motor Insight system offers overload and monitoring relays that provide solid state-motor protection and control. Advanced monitoring capabilities include thermal overload, ground fault detection, power voltage and current monitoring, along with flexible communications. The system helps improve reliability, uptime, safety, and ease of use in installation and maintenance. The system can help municipal water facilities detect conditions that could result in motor or pump failure, energy waste, and minimize potential for sewer system backups.

Solar power circulators

Click here to enlarge image

Using the sun’s energy instead of grid power, SolarBee® water circulators minimize aeration equipment run-time in wastewater and industrial water reservoirs, which significantly reduces energy costs. Thorough mixing helps improve regulatory compliance by reducing biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), total suspended solids (TSS), ammonia, odors and sludge buildup. Because the circulators use “green” solar power and reduce consumption of grid power, municipalities are eligible for green initiatives such as utility rebates and infrastructure improvement funding provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Treatment system

The patented Webitat system from Entex Technologies specifically addresses the problem with infestations of redworms which feed on the attached growth media biofilm. The system also shears the biomass creating a higher rate system. These thinner biofilms have shown substantial improvement in the performance of IFAS systems, a company spokesman said. The system is operating successfully at The Colony, a residential community in Texas, and at other wastewater treatment facilities across the country.

RedZone Robotics is introducing the RedZone Solo pipe inspection system at WEFTEC this year. The Solo robot does not require on-site trucks, generators, or personnel - resulting in increased safety, emissions reductions, elimination of easement access challenges, and minimal public disruption. One person can operate four robots after a day’s training, with significant increases in throughput compared to conventional CCTV.

DO monitoring

Click here to enlarge image

The Thermo Scientific Orion RDO probe and the AquaSensors RDO Pro incorporate a second generation rugged dissolved oxygen (DO) “dynamic luminescence quenching” principle. The sensors use luminescence technology to detect oxygen, in which the signal response is inversely related to the oxygen content, resulting in improved accuracy in low-level samples. The Orion RDO probes require no stirring of the sample, no warm up time and minimal maintenance. There are no membranes or solutions to replace.

Gas shutoff system

Eclipse Actuators close toxic gas valves on 150 lb. and ton cylinders in less than one second when activated by remote sensors. These electronic actuators are “close only devices” requiring an operator to visit the site to determine the cause of the problem. The battery-operated actuator allows an operator or remote gas sensor to shut off leaking toxic gas without requiring the operator to enter the hazardous atmosphere. The chlorine valve can be opened or closed manually with the actuator installed and ready to operate.
