ALL-FLO Pump introduces Solenoid Control for air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps.
ALL-FLO Pump introduces Solenoid Control for air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps. The solenoid control valve is used for remote, electrical control of the pump via a PC, PLC, relay or switch. With the solenoid, the pump can be operated from any work station which is networked with the solenoid. The solenoid controlled pump is ideal for applications where the pump is an integral component of a process and ‘on demand’ fluid transfer is needed. This feature is available in 3/8 in., ½ in., 1 in., 1-½ in., 2 in. and 3 in. pumps. ALL-FLO Pump Co., Mentor, OH, 440-354-1700, www.all-flo.com.
R.I.’s Scarborough Beach, with assistance from AbTech Industries, was recognized by NRDC as one of three top performers in the nation for protecting beachgoers from contaminated water. The heart of this team project launched in June 2004 involves diverting flow from stormwater outfalls that feed into public bathing waters through a filtering system using a drainage piping system filled with an antimicrobial material − Smart Sponge Plus − developed and patented by AbTech.

AnoxKaldnes Inc., manufacturer of patented LagoonGuard, MBBR and BiofilmChip, is marketing their proven system, the HYBAS treatment process (a type of Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge IFAS process). This system is especially suitable for Nitrogen removal in existing activated sludge systems. It’s able to upgrade existing treatment systems using the onsite tankage to meet new effluent ammonia or even total nitrogen limits. It increases aerobic sludge age of the aerobic basins without increasing the solids loading rate to the secondary clarifiers because it allows the nitrifiers to grow on the biofilm carrier elements.
