Aqua-Aerobic's new OptiFiber PES-14® Microfiber pile cloth filtration media is engineered to remove suspended solids, turbidity and fine particles up to 50% better than other filters or microscreens. The cloth media is ideal for fine polishing applications and can reduce total phosphorus to 0.1 mg/L or less. Its ability to maintain high filtrate quality, even during backwashing, provides assurance for meeting even the most stringent effluent requirements.
Stenner Pump Company announces two metering pump varieties in the New Econ Series; the FP and the T. The Econ Series are compact, easy to operate pumps offering an economic alternative for solution metering. The Econ FP can respond to flow from a variety of water conditioning equipment. The pump can accept a pulse input from a dry contact water meter, a signal from a dry contact flow switch or a 24 vAC signal from a water softener or other control equipment responding to flow. The Econ T is a pump with flexible scheduling capabilities for timed applications.

Rotary fan press
The Rotary Fan Press from Prime Solution uses continuous pressure and a rotational speed of less than 1 rpm to dewater sludge and slurries. The system is enclosed, automated, low maintenance, has a long service life and is energy efficient. It is also portable and expandable. Several capacities are available to meet flow applications of all sizes. The compact design simplifies installation. Skid mounted systems include a central operator control panel, feed pump, chemical prep, inline mixing and the availability of plant integrated controls as standard. Mobile systems can be containerized or trailer mounted.

Stainless steel enclosures
Rittal Corp. is packaging its TS8 freestanding enclosure in a turn-key package. The TS8 Turn-Key Enclosures feature all the most popular options and accessories pre-installed. The buyer selects size and design – single door, double doors, standard or disconnect – and final assembly is done in Rittal's Ohio factory by factory-trained specialists as part of the manufacturing process. Assembled enclosures are ready to ship in only five days. Features include a 16-fold frame; foamed-in-place polyurethane gaskets; a 4-point latching system; and depth adjustable zinc-plated mounting panels.
Valve actuator lock
Smith Flow Control has introduced its ISO-pattern IML intermediate valve actuator lock with universal mounting. The lock uses an operating key to lock the actuator in an open or closed position so the valve cannot turn. No custom brackets are required; any valve or actuator with ISO standard mountings is compatible with the IML lock. Ensuring that the valves are set in their failsafe position enables work to be done safely. The IML intermediate lock is available as a key-operated system from the control room or as a standalone lock-out system. Lock Boxes are available with base tags that match up to each lock-out key for ease of identification.

Bio Energizer® from Probiotic Solutions® is a specialized Micro Carbon Complex that is used in municipal and industrial systems to reduce sludge, odor, BOD/COD, FOG and costs in wastewater treatment plants and lagoons. The product bio-chemically oxidizes sludge in wastewater lagoons while remaining on line and continuing to work, and reduces the lagoon sludge blanket without the need for draining, drying, dredging, handling, or hauling. When used in activated sludge plants, it can increase volatile solids destruction and improve decant volume and settleability for greater digester and reactor capacity, giving operators more capacity to waste solids.
Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings has launched Acrolon Ultra, a high gloss, solvent-based acrylic polyurethane providing long-term UV protection for high profile structures where high durability is required. It provides excellent hiding and film formation at low film thicknesses (2-3 mils DFT), offering a distinct cost advantage during application. It is suitable for use in USDA-inspected facilities and on water storage tanks. At less than 340 g/L VOC, it complies with current Ozone Transport Commission (OTC) limits. Acrolon Ultra is optimized for brush and roll application and can be sprayed using airless or conventional spray equipment. It also provides a rapid return to service; the coating can be dry to the touch in as few as two hours after application.
Rotary lobe pumps
LobePro Rotary Pumps' G-series (General Use) and S-Series (Sludge, Mud, and Slurries) positive displacement rotary lobe pumps are suitable for pumping any WWTP sludge which has hard solids smaller than 1/8". The rotary lobe pumps are typically used to pump sludge to and from thickeners, separators (such as belt presses, centrifuges, and rotary presses), digesters and clarifiers. They handle flows from 8 gpm to 2000 gpm and pressures up to 150 psi. The customer can specify an in-line grinder, filter or knock-out tank should hard solids larger than 1/8" be present.
