Tank mixing

Th Prod S 02
Click here to enlarge image

Many potable water tanks or reservoirs depend on a typical common inlet/outlet to maintain drinking water quality. This system often proves inadequate when water outside the common inlet/outlet area of influence becomes stagnant, creating dead spots where bacteria are likely to multiply. Tideflex Technologies’ Tideflex® Mixing System (TMS) greatly improves the quality of drinking water in finished water storage reservoirs. The TMS is a combination of patented Tideflex Check Valve technology and a piping manifold that separates the inlet and outlet. The system can be installed in new or existing water storage tanks of all shapes and sizes to eliminate stagnation and short-circuiting. Operating on the differential pressure that is already in place, the system keeps energy costs low, while the all-elastomer check valves render the system virtually maintenance free.

Pacific Ozone recently released a new integrated ozone system, the Horizon Series. The system seamlessly integrates the four critical elements of ozone systems – feed gas preparation/oxygen concentration, ozone generation, mass transfer, and process control – in complete skid-based, stainless steel systems. The series is designed for applications in wastewater treatment and other industrial applications. Its basic features may be augmented by two comprehensive options packages. A host of additional optional accessories allow the units to be tailored to the specific needs of each application.

Cavity pumps

seepex has released a new axially split stator, designated the “SST” design, for its line of BN progressive cavity pumps. It can be supplied on a new seepex pump or can replace conventional tube-type stators on pumps currently in use. Unlike previous designs of progressive cavity pumps, additional space at the discharge of the pump is not needed to remove the stator. Replacement can be done in-situ and in less than one-fourth the time of conventional pumps which may require well over 1,000 lb. ft. to twist on a new stator. With the SST stator, compression is set after the two halves are fitted on the rotor. Compression of the stator on the rotor is easily determined by the amperage draw on the electric motor. The unique retensioning mechanism will extend the service life of the stator two to three times that of conventional molded-to-metal stators.

Submersible mixers

The advanced blade-form and large propeller diameters of the new generation EMU submersible mixers from WILO provide an energy savings of approximately 10 percent, when compared with similar submersible mixers. Using thrust-to-power ratios (as defined in the new ISO 21630 standard, which allows an objective comparison of mixers) it has been demonstrated that new generation submersible mixers (such as the EMU Maxiprop TR 226 and Megaprop TR 326) can substantially reduce energy costs. The company can provide the specific energy savings potential of its new mixing technology for any facility — given the basic parameters of: application, operating hours, tank volume and current energy costs per kW. This service is provided free of charge to all facilities.

When considering an automated metering reading project, the endpoint flexibility, performance and reliability are vital considerations. Itron’s 60 Series water endpoint is compatible with major water meters with either encoded or pulse-generating registers and is available in two housing designs to support both water pit and remote installations. The series has various mounting options for ease of installation in different configurations. It requires no FCC license and delivers improved reading performance by using 50 randomly selected radio channels along with increased output power. The components are fully encapsulated for protection against harsh elements the extended battery life offers a lower cost of ownership. Advanced leak, reverse-flow (encoder versions only) and tamper detection provides increased operational value to water providers.
