New products for the industrial water and wastewater industry.
Safety railing with toe boards
Safety railing systems with toe boards are often used at water and wastewater treatment plants if an object falling from the edge poses a safety risk. Kee Lite aluminum railing systems built with Type L89 base fittings feature a flange to accommodate toe board systems to reduce the hazard and enhance safety. They are OSHA-compliant, corrosion resistant, and feature smooth contours and recessed set screws for an aesthetic appearance. In addition, Kee Lite safety railing systems are easy to install, requiring only a hex tool and pipe cutters, and can save up to 50% installed cost compared to welded railings.

Liquid level measurement
VEGAPULS 64 accurately detects the liquid level, even in applications with high condensation. The antenna system is encapsulated in PTFE or PEEK, so there are no cavities or crevices in which product can accumulate. The surface of the material is very finely processed with diamond tools, which also considerably reduces product adhesion. In addition, special software algorithms filter out interference caused by buildup on the antenna system. Thanks to the high dynamic range of the sensor, signal attenuation caused by product deposits is largely compensated. This allows the level to be reliably detected even with contamination on the sensor.

Commonly used in the primary treatment of raw sewage solids, the Series A Muncher™ from NOV has been macerating solids in pump and lift stations across the country. Cutter materials and thickness options are available for effective and efficient grinding of solids. The lower cutter tip speeds dramatically reduce wear rates, ensure low noise and vibration, and provide abrasion resistance. The Series A Muncher’s rotational speed produces high torque, resulting in lower operating power at 3 hp or 5 hp, and is available with energy-efficient motors.

Tube failure detection technology
Blue-White’s new TFD+ (Tube Failure Detection) is now built into every FLEXFLO® Polymer Pump at no additional cost. This breakthrough technology is designed to detect the presence of oil- and water-based polymers in the pump head, which would indicate tube failure. When the TFD+ senses tube failure the pump automatically shuts off and will energize a relay, permitting communications with external equipment, such as a backup pump, an alarm or a SCADA system. There is no false triggering caused by condensation or washdown procedures. The pump will not resume operation until the problem is resolved.

Tacmina Corporation recently announced the addition of two new Smoothflow Q Series Pumps for laboratory use. Pumps are small and light enough to be held in the palm of a hand, but powerful enough to provide discharge pressure up to 2.0 MPa and precise enough to configure flow rates at units of 0.01 mL/min. Smoothflow Q Series pumps provide a constant and stable flow, they are gentle on liquids, economical to operate, and laboratory-sized. The pump design allows for constant flow without pulsation, liquid leakage or changes in properties.

Liquid laser with infrared technology
Hawk Measurement Systems has released the OptioLaser S300 that can be used for the detection of all types of liquids, regardless of their dielectric properties. This laser can accurately and reliably measure highly reflective liquids, clear liquids and even turbulent liquids. Due to its narrow beam divergence, it can be used to measure through grates and narrow passages, and even next to flat walls. It uses an infrared, low-gain GaAs laser diode, light energy of 905 nm that travels to the surface of any liquid and is reflected back. This time-off-light (the time the laser pulse took to travel to the liquid and back) is then calculated into a distance.
