SPX Process Equipment’s LIGHTNIN Operation introduces the Clean Edge impeller, a solution to the “dirty problem” of rag buildup in Municipal and Industrial wastewater treatment. For use in all services that require a ragless impeller, the impeller remains free of fibrous debris while delivering performance equal to a hydrofoil impeller. After nine months of continuous operation, it exhibited no rag buildup on the diameter, had the same power draw as when installed, and caused no mechanical issues while delivering the required mixing in this anoxic basin.

Liquid process filtration
Eaton Filtration’s new line of filters includes the LOFMEM™ membrane filter, LOFPLEAT™ pleated filter, LOFTREX™ depth filter, and a series of specialty filters marketed under the brands LOFSORB™, LOFMET™ and LOFCLEAN™ engineered for a range of liquid process applications across a number of industries. The membrane cartridges are absolute rated filters for precise, repeatable, sub-micron level filtration. Pleated cartridges provide higher surface area than depth filters for greater dirt holding and longer on-stream life. Eaton Corp. - Filtration Division, Islin, NJ, 732-767-4200, www.eaton.com

Seal support reservoir
The Flowserve W8 Series Seal Support Reservoir increases reliability of mechanical seals, decreases operating costs and minimizes process leakage. With a three-gallon reservoir, it’s designed to support dual mechanical seals by supplying a reliable water buffer or barrier that optimally manages water consumption. For peak performance, liquid-lubricated dual-pressurized and non-pressurized mechanical seals require clean, cool and well-lubricated secondary seal conditions. The design features a visual water flow indicator and a 316 SS tubing/cooling coil to maintain optimal buffer/barrier temperature while providing excellent corrosion resistance.

Scale inhibitor, disinfectant
The new Mazon® S technology joins BASF’s Aseptrol® CW solutions in its water treatment portfolio, providing excellent silica scale inhibition and allowing water cooling systems to operate at increased cycles of concentration to reduce makeup water and disposal needs for improved system efficiency. Compared to other commercially available products in established laboratory procedures, Mazon has shown excellent silica stabilization. The EPA-registered Aseptrol CW is a reliable, easy-to-use delivery system that regulates precise feed of chlorine dioxide into small-to-medium size cooling water systems.
