Larox Flowsys has developed a new line of dosing pumps that accurately dose lime slurry to the process, without the need for flow meters. With the Larox LPP-D peristaltic pumps users receive an exact flow every revolution of the pump. So by speeding up or slowing down the pump they will know the exact flow rate delivered to the process without a flow meter. The pump is available in ½" (0 - 2.6 gpm), ¾" (0 - 4.4 gpm), and 1” (0 - 8.8 gpm).

IMECO-USA has introduced the DynamOx Oxygenation System for advanced water and wastewater treatment applications. The system is designed to inject dissolved oxygen into water and wastewater. The system is a compact, self contained, fully automated unit that dissolves large amounts of oxygen within a fluid, typically water, using oxygen from either industrial bottles, liquid tanks or from an oxygen generator. The oxygen is injected through a patented nozzle assembly where the oxygen is mechanically bonded to water molecules and then introduced into the primary or target treatment stream.
