Knife gate valve
The new 14"-24" Fabri-Valve XS150 knife gate valves, available from ITT Industries’ Engineered Process Solutions Group, are designed using the same platform that has made the 2"-12" XS150 sizes successful. The knife gate design eliminates the leakage paths at the transition point between the perimeter seal and the chest seal, a problem that is common to other high performance knife gate valve designs. The new gates feature a one-piece perimeter seal that provides bi-directional bubble tight shutoff. The seal is double-locked in the valve body, a design innovation that keeps the perimeter seal secure within its groove. The valves are suited for use in harsh operating conditions.

Zebra mussel coating
Cook Legacy Coating offers the Jacquelyn coating system designed to stop zebra mussels from attaching to surfaces. Five years ago the company installed a screen coated with the product in zebra mussel-infested water at Vergennes-Panton Water District in Vermont. According to the site operators, zebra mussels have not attached to the screen. In addition to the long term study of the coating on a passive screen, the company has tested the coating with the US Government, the Copper Development Association, several utility companies, and an independent environmental laboratory.

Eastern Color & Chemical Co. has introduced two new products for industrial and municipal wastewater treatment plants. The company’s ECCO Defoamer BD-200 is designed to eliminate biologically induced foam in aerations basins and other treatment tankage. It can be used for a quick kill by direction application to foam or as a preventative by continuous addition at 5-20 ppm up-stream of the aeration basins. ECCO Defoamer CF-3 MOD is designed to prevent surfactant and biological induced foam.

Hydrant relief valve
An optional swivel (valve to hydrant) adapter is available as an option for Norman Noe’s standard 2 1/2” Brass Relief Valve. The valve comes standard with a fire hose adapter. However, the optional swivel will allow operators to better direct the discharge water. The brass relief valve is used anytime a water storage tank is drained or bypassed due to painting, repairs, or emergencies.

Sioux Steam Cleaner offers a line of application-specific pressure washers, steam cleaners and combination units that are ideal for cleaning tanks, grit collectors, belt thickeners, and process equipment in wastewater treatment plants. The line of all-electric models heats the cleaning water with electricity, rather than from oil-fired or gas-fired burners. Heaters are fully-rated to the stated water flow, so storage tanks are not required and water temperature is available instantly, and for unlimited time periods.
