Slip-type expansion joint

Click here to enlarge image

The Dresser Piping Specialties Style 63™ Expansion Joint is designed for many applications, including for use with steel pipelines on bridge crossings. A key design issue with this application is the exposure to temperature fluctuations and the need to accommodate expansion and contraction. The Style 63 joint is considered a slip-type joint and has distinct advantages over accordion or bellow type joints and eliminates the need for an expensive pipe loop expansion system.

Membrane Bioreactor

Click here to enlarge image

The Norit Airlift™ Membrane BioReactor (MBR) is a compact purification system that combines the biological degradation process with a membrane separation process. This combination offers several significant advantages over a conventional activated sludge system, including higher biomass concentration and less sludge carryover. The higher biomass concentration results in a more compact system. The decrease in sludge carryover reduces the need to post-treat the effluent.
