Corrosion-resistant materials

KCH Engineered Systems has introduced POLYSTRONG and POLYLAST, two corrosion-resistant, thermoplastic-based materials used in the equipment that it manufactures. They are poised to replace traditional fiberglass laminates that are subject to degradation wicking, porosity and UV light penetration. The materials are ideal for degasifiers or aeration towers at municipal drinking water treatment plants where NSF Certification is required.

Mapping software

Bentley Map SELECTseries 4 brings engineering and geospatial data closer together through improved interoperability with Esri File Geodatabase, Oracle 12c, CityGML, Bing Maps, and hybrid point-cloud and vector workflow support. The system eliminates redundant workflows and provides collaboration between geospatial and engineering standards to better support multi-discipline project teams. Users can connect directly to the Esri File Geodatabase and automatically create and exchange both CAD/engineering-standard and GIS-compliant files.


Dewatering, sludge pumps

Allegro Industries offers a complete line of work equipment for use in confined spaces, including four models of AC dewatering and sludge pumps, which offer continuous operation at low water levels and extended dry runs without overheating the motor. These portable, submergible pumps are excellent for manholes, vaults, construction sites, and all dewatering needs. Watertight o-ring seals keep the pump's internal parts completely dry, and it delivers up to 43 gallons per minute for rapid dewatering and instant prime.

Plunger valve

The RIKO Plunger Valve from Rodney Hunt is designed to control the flow of water under pressure while minimizing cavitation and vibration. It is ideal for in-line energy dissipation and free-discharge applications and is NSF-61-certified for contact with drinking water. Superior design directs the flow around the inner core within the valve body. This balances the pressure within the valve, prevents damaging cavitation and eliminates vibration. The unique plunger, with a high-strength ductile-iron body with epoxy-coating seating profile, creates a drip-tight shutoff.

Sewer rehabilitation robots

ID-TEC offers its Sewer Rehabilitation SERIES base robots, designed to easily detect and fix a variety of problems in sewer pipelines. The company released its 5th addition to the series, which features heavy grinding, milling and cutting equipment, as well as a powerful 6,000-watt, water-driven piston motor. The new robot is able to conduct CCTV inspections, place packers and renovation parts, reinstate laterals, and remove roots and other blockades in 7-inch or larger relined pipelines.


Micronutrient blend

Bionetix International, a subsidiary of Cortec Corporation, presents MICRO 14, a new special blend of 14 natural ingredients providing various sources of minerals, vitamins and microbial growth elements. This safe and economical alternative to the use of chemicals is beneficial in stimulating activity in nutrient deficient soils, groundwater or wastewater. The formulation will enhance the speed of the microbial degradation of organic materials in order to provide superior bioremediation.

Biopolymer test kit

HaloKlear is now offering contractors and regulators a new biopolymer test kit that is designed to be used 'on-site' and provides real-time, accurate results in minutes. HaloKlear understands that contractors and regulators don't have time to send samples to outside labs and wait for results. Every minute counts in sensitive stormwater runoff situations, and waiting for results could lead to a detrimental environmental impact at the job site. The new test kit is economical and includes materials for up to 100 field tests.


Customer experience platform

Vertex has announced that its VertexOne cloud-based customer experience platform will run on SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA). VertexOne is built on the SAP Customer Relationship Management and Billing for Utilities package and is integrated with industry-leading third-party technologies. The solution equips midsize utilities with standardized business processes and makes it possible for them to take advantage of real-time data and analytics as they achieve greater efficiencies and an improved user and customer experience.

Chlorine measurement

JM Science has introduced the CD-2000, which measures the amount of chlorine consumed by ammonia, iron, manganese, and other organic materials and provides advanced information as "Chlorine Demand" in raw water. A corresponding amount of chlorine is added for clean water with a consistent level of residual chlorine. The unit may be used for daily control and research purposes. The CD-2000 measures chlorine demand in drinking water, wastewater, rivers, lakes, dams, wells, and seawater quickly and easily.
