UV disinfection
Trojan's new technology - TrojanUV Solo Lamp™ - has been incorporated into the new TrojanUVTorrent™ and offers the advantages of both existing medium pressure and low pressure, high output lamp technologies. At 1000W, the lamp is the most powerful in the industry. The power consumption of this new lamp technology is approximately one-third that of medium-pressure lamp systems.

The Accusonic Model 7720 Transit-Time flowmeter is designed to address the difficult installation requirements common to large ultraviolet (UV) disinfection systems. The maximum 10 path capability allows the meter to measure with accuracy and repeatability, even in the presence of distorted flow profiles common to large UV system installations. Additionally, the pipe section length required to install a 7720 system is significantly less than other flow measurement technologies for large pipe installations. Measurable pipe/channel sizes range from 8" to 500 feet.

Reagentless chlorine analyzers
Hach now offers two new reagentless chlorine analyzers, the CLF10 sc and CLT10 sc, for measurement of Free and Total Chlorine, respectively. The chlorine analyzers can be used for process control where real-time, continuous results are beneficial. Because they are reagentless, they are ideal for applications where waste stream management or routine reagent replacement is a challenge. The analyzers include self diagnostics which provide alarms for pH, chlorine and flow deviations, helping users determine whether the process has changed or the instrument needs servicing.

Peracetic acid
An alternative to halogenated disinfectants such as chlorine-based chemicals, Proxitane WW-12 peracetic acid from Solvay Chemicals is an EPA-registered wastewater disinfectant which does not generate chlorinated byproducts and does not require a dechlorination step. It can have an immediate synergistic positive effect on an existing UV disinfection system by its simple addition into the wastewater.

Shutoff system
The Hexacon™ Model II control system from Halogen Valve quickly closes up to six Eclipse™ actuators on toxic gas cylinder and ton container valves by remote contact switches. The microprocessor system applies 30 foot-pounds of torque for test closures and 50 foot pounds of torque for emergency closures of cylinder valves. With a SCADA option, the system provides actuator closure status and error codes to quickly analyze problems and to take corrective action.
