Terra Novo is launching its new Floccin product line that cost-effectively removes water contaminants and sediment from effluent streams, drainage channels and sediment basins. A single four-pound mesh Floccin Bag can typically treat 10,000 gallons of water and decrease Nephelometric Turbidity Units (NTU) from 1,000 to less than 20. Floccin Snakes treat sediment-laden stormwater effluent, preventing polluted water from leaving construction sites and settling ponds. It first coagulates sediment particles via charge stabilization, then flocculation occurs, and finally ion exchange takes place to permanently remove the contaminants by encapsulating them in a newly-formed layer of mica. All individual components of Floccin are NSF 60- and GRAS-approved.

Innovyze announced the release of Generation V10 of InfoWater UDF - its geocentric solution for unidirectional flushing of drinking water distribution systems. The latest release features a host of new and unique capabilities to help water utilities better manage the systematic flushing of their water distribution systems. UDF can help utilities improve water quality by restoring the disinfectant residual, reducing bacterial regrowth, dislodging biofilms, removing sediments and deposits, controlling corrosion, restoring flows and pressures, eliminating taste and odor problems, and reducing disinfectant demand throughout the system. The program accurately considers the temporal variation in flow velocity magnitude and direction caused by changes in demands, tank levels and operating conditions.
Internal gear pumps
Internal Gear Pumps from EnviroGear® effectively eliminate leaks and mechanical wear, helping to increase personnel and environmental safety. Traditional magnetically-coupled positive displacement pumps are designed with two fluid chambers separated by an adapter plate, which results in product entrapment and poor reliability when moving high-viscosity fluids. The EnviroGear Seal-less Internal Gear Pump uses magnets mounted directly to the rotor, eliminating the need for an adapter plate and allowing for a single fluid chamber. This design results in a much shorter, simpler flow path and allows the pump to easily handle fluids with high viscosities up to 50,000 cSt, while increasing bearing life and cleaning capability.
The new nitrous oxide (N2O) sensor from Unisense enables online measurement and process control of harmful greenhouse gas emissions from wastewater treatment plants. Recent studies show that N2O emission may account for up to 80% of total carbon footprint from certain plants and that substantial and cost-effective reductions could be obtained through optimization of nitrification and denitrification process management. Until recently, pricey and vulnerable off-gas measurements limited N2O measurements to scientific research purposes, but the simplicity and durability of this sensor enables plant managers themselves to start monitoring and reducing their nitrous oxide emission.
The Witte Co. has unveiled remote monitoring and control on its line of vibrating fluid bed dryers, coolers, dewaterers, pellet classifiers, conveyors and other equipment. Controlled remotely with a dedicated PLC HMI, the remote desktop capability enables process engineers to start and stop batch and continuous operations, adjust their parameters and check process conditions, such as air temperature, airstream velocity and retention time, in real time while away from the processing line. Ideal for water and wastewater and other processors with multiple facilities worldwide and/or those operating in controlled environments, the remote desktop capability is available as part of the company's PLC-based, integrated control system.

Palintest has received EPA approval for testing methods used by its SA1100 Scanning Analyzer. The SA1100 provides portable testing of drinking water for lead and copper with quick and accurate results that abide by the recently-revised EPA standards for defining lead-free water. The lightweight and waterproof SA1100 is capable of field- or laboratory-based water analysis. Tests are conducted with easy-to-use disposable sensors for accurate results in less than three minutes. Data can be downloaded to PC or tablet devices via USB for convenient logging and tracking. Tests for lead and copper are guided with on-screen prompts on the LCD monitor and can be performed accurately without extensive product training. The instrument is powered by four AA batteries for easy and efficient operation.

Flomatic Corporation introduces a new 316 Stainless Steel submersible pump check valve for use with variable-frequency-drive (VFD) controlled pumps. The poppet assembly is designed for providing minimum flow loss and years of trouble-free service under variable flow. Flomatic's unique VFD valve turns the popper upside down and moves the popper away from the seat bore after opening under flow. An exclusive precision-guided 316 poppet system adjusts noiselessly from high to low flow rates. A special radius seat gives the valve a self-cleaning "one point swiping action" by the radius-edged, custom-molded rubber seat disc. All internal parts are made from corrosion-resistant materials.
Measurement Specialties has improved the operating temperature range for the KPSI Model 342 submersible level transducer. The 342 transducer can now withstand temperatures up to +85°C for use in hostile fluids, providing a 4-20 mA analog output with digital transducer performance. It is a small bore (3/4" body diameter) submersible hydrostatic level transducer that combines Measurement's sensor competencies with the latest in Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) technology. The addition of the ASIC has given the Model 342 digital performance in an analog product over the entire operating range. The transducer is available in vented, sealed and absolute formats to 300 psi (700' H2O WC level) full scale output.
