Urethane primer

Now available from Tnemec is a one-component version of the Series 91-H2O Hydro-Zinc, the first organic urethane zinc-rich primer to be ANSI/NSF Std. 61 certified for potable water. In addition to being a single component product, the new series 94-H2O Hydro-Zinc is low VOC and low in HAPS content, making it ideal for use in areas with strict environmental regulations.

Ball valve

Hayward’s new plastic, corrosion resistant lateral three-way ball valves simplify piping system layouts by replacing conventional valve/tee connection combinations. The new valve can also be used to replace zero dead-leg valves. The valves are available from 1/2" to 6" made of PVC or CPVC with a choice of FPM or EPDM seals. The valves feature a specially designed ball that permits the flow to be diverted from the center port to either the left or right ports without a shutoff position.

Anti-microbial coating

Madison Chemical Industries has announced that its polyurethane coatings and linings for the water and wastewater market are available in enhanced versions that contain an EPA registered Anti-Microbial agent. The AM modified version of the company’s 100% solids polyurethane coating for potable water applications has been tested and approved as per ANSI/NSF 61. In wastewater environments, the Anti-Microbial agent in the polyurethane system has been proven to enhance the coating’s effectiveness in protecting substrates from the destructive effects of Microbiologically Induced Corrosion (MIC).

Odor control

Altivia offers Nitrazyme™ Plus, a proprietary (Patent pending) blend containing sodium nitrate. The product is a safe, natural biological approach to controlling odors and corrosion produced from reduced sulfur compounds in wastewater. Nitrate provides a source of bound oxygen (nitrate-oxygen) to naturally occurring facultative anaerobic denitrifying bacteria present in wastewater, which these bacteria metabolize preferentially over alternative sources of oxygen such as sulfate, preventing the formation of H2S gas.
