Terracon, the creator of Terrapure® tanks, now offers a dual tank console ready for installation of piping, valves, pumps, mixers, and other accessories to create finished mix and dispense systems. Originally designed for mixing and dispensing sodium bicarbonate solution in hemodialysis clinics, this tank console fits the bill in any batch application that requires a complete mix and verification prior to distribution or dispensing. Users are able to configure the system in the manner that best suits the application. Some use one tank only for mixing, and the other only as a distribution loop reservoir. Others perform both processes in both tanks, alternating between tanks to allow for cleaning and disinfecting between batches. Standard 60- or 115-gallon consoles are available for use as is, or to build prototypes.

Halogen Valve Systems offers automatic shut off systems for Chlorine and SO2 cylinder and ton container valves. The Eclipse Actuator™ mounts directly to standard container valves without special tools. The battery-operated actuator will close a chlorine valve in less than one second in response to signals from leak detectors, earthquake sensors, and local or remote "panic buttons." Operators need not enter a toxic atmosphere to shut off a leaking chlorine system. The latest Fire Codes recognize and approve the "automatic-closing fail-safe shutoff valve" system in lieu of a scrubber treatment system. When combined with a leak detection system, the shut off system stands guard 24 hours a day.

KDF® 55 Process Medium, from KDF Fluid Treatment, provides an effective means of reducing contaminants in water. The copper-zinc alloy medium reduces contaminants such as chlorine, bacteria and heavy metals using a chemical process called redox, or oxidation-reduction. During redox, free electrons are transferred between molecules turning previously harmful substances such as chlorine into a benign substance like chloride. The medium's unique redox process, which removes up to 98% of inorganic water-soluble heavy metals from filtered water, is protected by 14 US patents and numerous foreign patents. It can be used at both POE and POU, and has extensive applications in residential, commercial and industrial settings.

Click here to enlarge image

LightStream Technologies offers the new LSi, which integrates pulsed UV light, digital operating systems, optimum fluid dynamics and touch screen operation into a state-of-the-art "plug & play" disinfection machine that uses no chemicals and contains no mercury. The equipment produces UV by means of short, high-current pulses of electricity (up to 30 per second) through a single inert (non-mercury) xenon flash lamp. Through the company's patented Constant Optimum Dose methodology, the unit conducts continuous sub-second analysis of the UV intensity and makes real-time adjustments to deliver the specified UV dose. This is accomplished by means of an internal closed loop control system which, in real-time, adjusts the reactor module's UV power and/or flow rate to accommodate a wide range of varying influent conditions.

Filtration, separation system

Pall Corp. and Aqua-Aerobic Systems have joined forces. By combining Pall's expertise in filtration and separation processes with Aqua's biological reactor designs, a unique separations technology is now available for wastewater reuse applications. This process also increases the capacity of active wastewater treatment plants. This significantly reduces the physical size of the bioreactor. Further cost savings are realized by passing biomass directly to an advanced design membrane stage which rejects suspended materials and biosolids. It provides effluent that exceeds current EPA guidelines for safe discharge and is ideal for reclaiming water for industry and agricultural applications.

Chemical metering pump

Watson-Marlow Bredel offers its new 323 pump, which is ideal for chemical metering. The pumps can handle harsh chemicals such as sodium hypochlorite, ferric chloride, alum, sodium bi-sulfite, caustic, aqueous ammonia, polymer, and many others. In addition, the pump will not vapor lock from hypochlorite off-gassing. Because the pump's tube is the only replacement part, tube change-over can be completed in three seconds, making the pump virtually maintenance-free. A typical pump rebuild costs less than $15. The pump is reversible, offers turndown ratios of 20,000:1, and requires no pulsation dampeners, strainers, or back pressure valves.
