Sauereisen recently introduced the latest variation of its SewerGard family. SewerGard Glaze No. 210G is a polymer coating that complements the rest of a line that originated in the 1980s. It provides longevity where either a topcoat or economical, stand-alone lining is required to protect wastewater infrastructure. The glaze is composed of 100% solids epoxy and shares the same chemical resistance as the company’s proven No. 210. When used as a topcoat, the glaze adds an extra layer of protection against microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC). Some specifications include it as a glossy topping to other filled systems by Sauereisen. For less extreme applications, the glaze works well on its own.

Abrasion resistant pipe
Abresist piping is tougher than the grit, sludge, limestone, incinerator ash, sand, Perlite, grain or biosolids fertilizer being conveyed in wastewater plants. The basalt-lined piping lasts five times longer than ½" cast iron. Pipes, elbows and fittings are custom engineered for each application and can be provided in a variety of end connection arrangements to retro-fit into existing systems or install in new ones using flanges, grooved couplings, compression couplings or welded attachments.
Low-flow chemical feed
Hydro Instruments’ V-RAD is a new invention designed to meter low feed rates of liquid chemicals (such as sodium hypochlorite) accurately and reliably. It was designed in 2005 and brought into full production in early 2006. Specifically, the V-RAD was invented for the application of feed rate control of liquid chemical solutions being injected into a water stream using a venturi nozzle. The chemical is fed under vacuum, which eliminates all pressurized chemical lines. It is fed through a fixed-diameter orifice in shortly spaced intermittent pulses (allowing a larger orifice to be used).
Baldor Electric manufactures a line of gasoline, LP and diesel-powered generators for all types of commercial and industrial applications. The generators ranges in size from 1.1kW to 2000kW. Industrial mobile generators, both standard and custom-built trailer mounted generators, have been in the company product line for several years. Standard stock trailer mounted gensets are the Towable series offered in seven models from 25kVA to 400kVA. The units can be removed from the trailers/chassis, if necessary, for permanent pad installation. The Towable series offers a three-position voltage connection switch. This enables the operator to select at the job site one of three main output voltage combinations while allowing the 120 /240 Volt convenience receptacles to remain active. Large integral base mounted fuel tanks are supplied with every unit. Heavy gauge enclosures and sound insulation keeps sound levels to a minimum, while powder coat paint protects the unit from harsh outdoors. Access doors are lockable and have heavy-duty hinges.

Axial, mixed flow pump
MWI’s HydraFlo, a hydraulically driven axial or mixed flow pump, has been updated and re-engineered. The pumps range in size from 8" to 60", pumping over 100,000 GPM at low to medium heads. The redesign dramatically decreased the size of the hydraulic tank, installed radiator-mounted hydraulic coolers, and moved to cast iron pump heads for smaller pumps. The smaller tank reduces the size of the drive unit and the costs of replacing the hydraulic fluid.
