Pennwell web 216 300

The Duperon® Auger Conveyor provides for increased site flexibility with the possibility of 90 degree turns within 90 inches. Ideal for distances up to 40 feet, it is scalable to site constraints with modular components that make assembly – and additions – simple. Constructed of abrasion and wear-resistant UHMW, the conveyor accommodates grit without damage. It accepts screenings from multiple inputs and is designed to move screenings from hard-to-reach locations at rates of up to 18 cubic feet per hour, providing the perfect screenings transfer method for small and medium-sized facilities.

A new alternative to dewatering alum sludge at water treatment plants is Flo Trend’s Sludge Mate and Poly-Mate. The equipment is comprised of a container with an internal filter system and a polymer mixing and injection unit to condition the sludge prior to dewatering. The Sludge Mate is available in three models, the roll-off, trailer mounted, or the permanently installed tipping stand unit. The Poly-Mate is usually set in place permanently on site, but can be installed on the trailer mounted systems for mobile applications. Typically the sludge is pumped from a lagoon through the Poly-Mate where a dilute polymer solution is injected, causing the sludge to flocculate prior to entering the container.

Magnetic flow meter

Pennwell web 212 300

Mueller Systems has announced the new HbMAGthe company’s magnetic flow meter for the water industry. The meter enables municipalities to measure water flow more accurately than with most traditional meters with virtually no reduction in head pressure. It is suited for use in potable, wastewater and reclaimed water systems and can be a viable replacement option for applications that previously used a compound or horizontal turbine meter. It can also serve in applications where minimal head pressure loss is vital, such as fire protection systems. The compact design contains no moving part and it can be installed vertically or horizontally for flexibility in system retrofits and designs.

A new remote debris trap pivots from the rear of Vac-Tron Air Series® machines. The system collects the dry debris during a potholing operation, keeping it separate from the main debris tank. After dry potholing, operators position the remote pivot arm over the hole to return dry material without moving the machine. The main debris tank can be used to collect drill slurry or wet materials without contaminating the dry spoils. Operators can gravity feed materials from the remote trap into drums for storage and/or transportation. The pivot arm also supports a remote suction hose.

Wye fitting

Pennwell web 300 300

Inserta Tee® has introduced a new wye fitting for tapping a lateral connection into most types and sizes of mainline pipe or structures. The Inserta Wye™ (patent-pending) is connected to the pipe without the need to dig underneath with no securing straps required. The new wye fitting meets ASTM 3212 using air pressure and is watertight to meet requirements for storm and sanitary sewer lines. Available in both 4” and 6” inlets, the fitting can be used to connect corrugated, solid wall, profile wall and concrete pipe regardless of manufacturer. It can be installed without disturbing the bedding, unlike conventional saddle wyes which need to be strapped around the main pipe with clamps.
