Sulfide ion measurement
The new SMS-22 Sulfide Ion Measurement System from Electro-Chemical Devices can be quickly installed with no special tools, features user-selectable automated sequential sampling of sulfide ions in water and lowers plant technician and supply maintenance costs. In addition to odors, excessive concentrations of hydrogen sulfide in wastewater can lead to corrosion and structural damage to municipal infrastructure.
The new UC 330 Corrugator with its newly-developed air cooling system will be used primarily in the U.S. drainage pipe market. During pipe production, the moulds can be kept at a constant temperature between 20°C and 80°C in a continuous cooling process. Variations from outside such as operating and ambient temperature do not influence the continuous process. Outputs up to 1,100 kg/h (PP/PE) or 1,300 kg/h (PVC) can be achieved parallel with highest product quality; the maximum production speed is about 40 m/min.
Engineered Treatment Systems UV disinfection system offers better safety with no open water surfaces and reduced UV exposure; quicker and cheaper installation either horizontally or vertically to save space; and improved maintenance with a wiping mechanism external to the water, wiper rings that can be replaced without removing the wiping carriage from chamber, and an individual lamp and sleeve replacement.

Wilden® announced its complete line of EZ-Install TPE Diaphragms designed so the operator in the field does not need to invert the diaphragm during the installation process. This improvement will reduce the installation time, lower maintenance costs and improve uptime. The diaphragms are available in Santoprene®, Hytrel®, polyurethane, and Geolast® options. Geolast is an injection-molded material ideal for applications requiring enhanced oil resistance equivalent to that of nitrile (Buna-N) at a lower cost. EZ-Install diaphragms are available for use in Wilden's 38 mm (1 1/2"), 51 mm (2"), 76 mm (3"), and 102 mm (4") Original™ and Advanced™ Series AODD pumps. All EZ-install diaphragm options maintain compatibility with existing hardware.

The Z De-chlorinator unit utilizes a fast, simple, easy-to-use tablet dechlorinator for fire hydrant flushing programs and other water quality tasks. The new system is smaller than a toolbox, made of 6061 – T6 high strength aluminum, and is lightweight with aircraft precision welds. Holding up to four Vita-D-Chlor Tablets, it can dechlorinate the average 30-minute flush of a hydrant. Available with a permanent diffuser (NEMA-200) or a removable flushing elbow (NEMA-100), both will direct water safely.
An innovative high dump option for Vacall AllJetVac combination sewer cleaners has been introduced by Gradall Industries Inc. This unique design allows the operator to raise the debris tank 76" above ground level and shift the tank horizontally 21" beyond the rear bumper - a capability that is unmatched in the industry. This allows the operator to dump material faster and more efficiently into municipal dewatering containers, avoiding the need for dangerous ramps.

Bacterial count systems
For a low-cost method of measuring disinfection efficiency and contamination levels, Cole-Parmer presents the new GreenLight® Environmental Bacterial Count Systems. The systems are ideal for monitoring wastewater discharge for disinfection limits in NPDES permits, drinking water plant disinfection, and bacteria in water at beaches. The systems measure oxygen consumption to determine the level of live aerobic bacteria.
Membrana introduced the W20 Liqui-Flux® Ultrafiltration Module with 91 m2 of membrane surface area. This new product with its high filtration surface area allows customers to build ultrafiltration systems using fewer modules and less equipment. The module is a durable and robust ultrafiltration system that can process flow rates of 4.5-14 m3/h in a single device. Further, the module utilizes the proven UltraPESTM membrane in an inside-out flow configuration and delivers consistent, high-quality filtration.
