Goulds Pumps offers a line of heavy duty, magnetically driven, lined process pumps for safely handling chemical and pharmaceutical wastewater - the 3298 Series. They handle these fluids safely, reliably and at a minimum operational cost. They’re available in frame-mounted, close-coupled, vertical in-line and self priming configurations. Liquid-end parts are lined with a thick layer of Tefzel® (ETFE) for universal corrosion resistance and a barrier against leakage. The series has no expensive conventional mechanical seals to fail and meets the EPA regulations under the Clean Air Act. Efficiencies are equal to conventionally sealed ANSI pumps and as high as 30% better than competitive metallic, seal-less pumps. Capacities to 1,200 gpm, heads to 425 feet and temperature up to 250°F. ITT Goulds Pumps, Seneca Falls, NY, 315-568-2811, www.gouldspumps.com

Oil skimmers

Part of the Wallace & Tiernan product line, a new duplex model has been included in the Encore 700 series chemical metering pump. Using a single gearbox design with two liquid ends mounted 180o apart, the configuration offers a more economical metering arrangement for increased capacity requirements, minimizing pulsations and allowing for blending applications, future expansion and use of a smaller and less expensive pump without sacrificing pressure capabilities. Able to handle capacities to 634 gph and back pressures to 175 psi, the new design includes multiple wetted materials for municipal and industrial applications, including PVC, PDVF and stainless steel. Cartridge valves allow for simplified service without disturbing the pump head pipe works. It also has automatic feed controls via both stroke length and stroke frequency.

Biosolids energy recovery

Kruger Inc., a Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies company, introduces an advanced biosolids energy recovery system (ERS) that captures the energy value from dried biosolids. The BIOCON® ERS will be used as a renewable energy source for the established BIOCON® thermal drying system. It offers wastewater treatment plants the opportunity to reduce energy costs by feeding dried biosolids into a furnace equipped with a special heat recovery system. The recovered heat is then returned to the drying process, making it energy self-sufficient. It achieves over 95% solids reduction. Kruger Inc., Cary, NC, 919-653-4574, www.kruger.com
