Bar-wrapped concrete cylinder pipe
B-303 pipe from Forterra is manufactured using a welded steel cylinder lined with centrifugally-applied mortar or concrete; a mild steel reinforcing bar is then helically wound around the outside of the cylinder and coated with dense Portland cement mortar. This composite construction combines the best of both materials — the strength of steel with the corrosion resistance and durability of concrete and mortar. The completed pipe is able to withstand internal pressures and external loads normally encountered in the waterworks industry. The design allows for easy modifications in the field, such as adding a manhole outlet, making service taps, and performing simple repairs.

Flow meter with Modbus capabilities
Sparling Instruments has begun production on a Modbus-capable version of its TigermagEP™ electromagnetic flow meter. Responding to requests from customers for an electromagnetic flow meter with integrated Modbus for use in digitally controlled or automated systems, TigermagEP electromagnetic meters, whether integral or remote style, that are already installed in a system can also be upgraded to Modbus by adding an optional Modbus-enabled transmitter or module. The modules are easy to change out in the field, so it’s fast and simple to integrate existing TigermagEP mag meters into a Modbus network.
Aluminum deflection elbows
The cast aluminum line of Smart Elbow® deflection elbows from HammerTek® is now available in tube and pipe sizes from 1.5 inches up to 12 inches in diameter. Engineered for dilute-phase and dense-phase pneumatic conveying of abrasive materials utilized in wastewater treatment, the deflection elbow prevents material from impacting the elbow wall and causing wear, failure and downtime. The elbows feature a spherical chamber that protrudes partially beyond the desired 90º or 45º pathway, which causes a ball of material suspended in air to rotate, gently deflecting incoming material around the bend without impacting the elbow wall or generating heat.
The Q-PRESS® from Huber is a screw press with a conical screw shaft and cylindrical sieves consisting of three treatment zones: inlet and drive zone, three-part thickening and dewatering zone, and press zone with pneumatic counter-pressure cone. The supernatant is quickly removed by the feed pump via a large free filter surface at a low primary pressure while the volume of material between the screw flights is reduced by the conical screw and the sludge is dewatered. Residual water is pressed out of the sludge by the pneumatic counterpressure cone at the press discharge.
Multiple screw pumps
NETZSCH Pumps North America’s new NOTOS™ line features multiple screw pumps that are hydraulically balanced, delivering efficient pumping with very low axial force. The two-screw pump operates with a drive screw intermeshing with a driven screw transferring torque from one to the other, while the three-screw pump operates with a drive screw intermeshing with two driven screws that transfer torque from one to the other. In both, the screws are surrounded by a ferrous pump housing, and together, the screw geometry and housing form the pumping chamber. Rotation, screw diameter, and screw pitch define the pump’s flow rate.

The HAL-18LED-BP LED portable lighting system from Larson Electronics provides operators with instant illumination in areas where an AC power supply is not accessible. The unit is constructed of polycarbonate and the LED lamp head is vibration and impact resistant. This explosion proof lighting system provides up to 1,500 lumens of high quality light in a compact yet portable package. The 18 watt LED light comes in a 90-degree beam spread and operates on a 12-volt rechargeable nickel-metal hydride battery, which operates for five hours on high mode and 10 hours on low mode.
The JetFlo Mixer from Park Process is a tank mixer designed to pull in and eject three times the amount of water pumped through its nozzle. As fluid is pumped through the JetFlo’s inlet nozzle, a low pressure zone is created between the end of the nozzle and the inlet of the diffuser section, which pulls in surrounding fluid and entrains it in the motive flow from the nozzle. The diffuser (venturi) section produces the velocity recovery necessary to keep the plume of fluid together and with enough dynamic energy to push far into the surrounding fluid.
