Taylor Technologies offers two field tests for analyzing silica-based corrosion control programs in municipal drinking water systems. These colorimetric tests employ the heteropoly blue method and are suitable for monitoring both passivation and maintenance dosages. The K-1272 includes the company's Slide™ comparator, which compensates for color and turbidity present in water samples. The test range is 0–50 ppm with standards for 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, and 50 ppm SiO2.

Chemline has announced the development of a new solvent-free, two component polyurethane coating that is applied directly to prepared steel, ductile iron or concrete to provide corrosion protection for the substrate. Chemthane 2260™ is a 100 percent solids (Zero VOC), fast-cure polyurethane that can achieve high film build in a single coat multi-pass application. Primers are generally not required for application of this product. It is used to protect underground tanks, pipelines and pilings.

For low-pressure spray applications, TAH offers a low-cost spray system. This disposable assembly can be used with conventional meter/mix equipment. Common applications include truck bed liners, concrete coating and tank repair. The reactive coating is mixed within a special static mixer. At the mixer outlet, air is introduced which atomizes the liquid stream. This is effective for high viscosity liquids and abrasive suspensions. Since the reactive coating is contained completely within the disposable static mixer, clean up time is minimal.

Wastewater treatment facility managers now have a new weapon in their fight against corrosion and nuisance odors. High hydrogen sulfide levels, the primary culprit, can now be tracked with Arizona Instrument's new Jerome 860 continuous monitor. The hydrogen sulfide monitor's automatic, long-term monitoring helps users determine how well control measures are working. The unit measures and stores up to 100,000 data points, which can be downloaded to either a PDA or a PC.

The use of hydrogen peroxide and iron salts are both proven methods for treating sulfide for odor and corrosion control in collection systems. US Peroxide has integrated these two methods in a synergistic fashion that results in improved performance and lower iron consumption. The proprietary technology is known as Peroxide Regenerated Iron - Sulfide Control™ or PRI-SC™. Along with long-duration control of sulfides to low levels, the technology provides benefits that include rapid oxidation, improved influent quality and benefits for clarification and digesters.

Ipex offers the Vortex Flow Insert, a system designed to eliminate sewer odor emissions and control corrosion. The insert's high-tech, low-maintenance design has no moving parts and offers savings over conventional chemical injection systems. Applications include any sewers that have potential for odorous discharges including manhole drops, pumping station wet wells, and forcemain discharges. The insert features a patented spiral flow design that uses "passive hydraulic technology" to harnesses the energy of the sewage flow to re-aerate the sewage and oxidize odorous gases.

Con(mic)Shield®, available from AP/M Permaform, is designed to prevent corrosion in concrete sewer structures. The liquid admixture can be incorporated into repair mortars as well as new concrete for pipe, manholes and similar sewer structures. It prevents the growth of the T. bacteria that creates acid from sewer gases. It is not a surface treatment that can chip, peel or delaminate. It is throughout the concrete matrix for long term protection against MIC.
