The Hydrant Hat™ is designed to keep snow, ice and rain off fire hydrants. The plastic structure is manufactured in two parts which snap together to form one unit at the time of application. A patented “flexible finger” base secures the unit to the hydrant, yet allows for simple removal when the hydrant is needed. The hydrant cover is designed with a 26 inch base tapering to a 20 inch top, and stands 42" high. Its construction allows for the attachment of a reflective flag to the upper section, for deep snow conditions.

Dewatering equipment repair

The USFilter Regain Program focuses on rebuilding, refurbishing or optimizing filter presses, belt presses and other dewatering equipment to regain efficiency, throughput and productivity. Client requests range from simply fitting a filter press with new filter cloths to the more complex overhaul of all mechanical and control systems. Such improvements can result in shorter cycle times, dryer cake solids and better effluent quality. USFilter Service Engineers inspect the equipment onsite and assesses what needs to be done. This is followed by a detailed report on the equipment performance, including recommendations for repair and upgrades.

JWC Environmental has introduced a new series of immersible motors developed by Baldor exclusively for JWC. The motors exhibit improved efficiency, operate at a cooler temperature, and are less expensive than typical submersible motors frequently used for applications with occasional flooding. This new innovation is ideal for applications that are prone to intermittent flooding because it is designed to operate exposed to air, along with the capacity for 30 feet of submergence during flooding.

A new Bulk Filling System with High-Lift Drum Dumper, available from Flexicon, automatically transfers bulk solid materials from drums to a machine’s fill head. The system is dust-free, can fill pails by weight and verifies fill weight accuracy. Drums are loaded at floor level onto a platen that lifts hydraulically to form a dust-tight seal between the drum lip and gasketted discharge cone. The entire drum carriage elevates hydraulically, then tips, causing the discharge cone to mate with a gasketted receiving ring on the filling machine’s surge hopper lid.
